Going to skip stuff about me today. Someone wrote me and said she wanted to know some things about me. Seems innocent enough.
I think A Girl’s Guide is funny, but do you really want me to become a criminal?
Yes. If you want to. Do you want me to say you can be anything you want? We’ll that’s not going to happen. It’s not true. There’s bad luck and then you make your own stupid choices on top of that. So you probably won’t be doing some things. Crime is a good alternative to (and I hope this never happens) being sold into slavery for cheap labor.
You are on the run, I know, but what if you went to the authorities?
Who would that be? Most of the government is corrupt. Money makes the gears turn. The Triads and SunGen would buy off anyone protecting me. Going to the authorities would also put me on the Web. Triads would find me after a few hours. I paid guys to clear me off the Web. Wasn’t cheap. But I’ll go right back on the police database if I go for help. Most of all, I’m a minor on the run. So, No, can’t go to the authorities. I’m on my own.
What music do you like?
Fever Trance, Dark Jazz, AsianBlues. I also like really old stuff like 20th century jazz and anything with speed sax.
What do you read?
I read a lot of non-fiction so I can make up for not having had much school. I read about recent history. I like art and design. I draw, but don’t show it to anyone. Lately, I read a lot of news online. One idea leads to another. So I’m wandering aimlessly online in a reading trance.
Do you have a hidden talent?
Yes. It’s hidden.
When do you like to write most?
Night. I leave the window open and hear the cars go by on the street. Later the horny cats come out. They’re loud, so I take stretching break. Then, back to work and around 3:30am I’m ready to pack it in.
How long does it take to be a pickpocket?
Seriously. Hmmm. 3 to 4 hours a day for two years to become very good. Add another year or two to be at the top of your game. But you never stop learning. And I had a great teacher.
You’re alone a lot. How do you like that?
It’s not perfect. But I get a lot of writing done. I think about the gang, Otoy, Seven, Glee, all of them. I’ve already been on touch, but can’t write about that hear.
