Found myself speaking with the parent of a small child I was amusing* at a restaurant:
"Are you an actor?"
"Not exactly. Why do you ask?"
"Well, you're very animated..."
"And yet, you didn't ask if I was a cartoon."
*OK, truth be told, we were amusing each other.

There is part of my psyche that is at war with the ideological merit of almost all of my childhood heroes.
Thankfully, the part of me that is still a young boy defends whatever portion of my neural network that loves the batmobile.
Were you to drive it into a field full of aliens who had never seen our 4-wheeled form of transportation, they'd exclaim, "Dude, nice car!"
Now the interesting question is the one that sparked this post: Which bat car do you imagine when I mention it?
One of the delightful side benefits of our #CircusInPlace video chats is getting to hear about everyone's passion projects.
Whether it is #circus skills like us, or music, art, cooking, or geeky projects, it always inspires me to hear people share the things that excite them and bring them joy.
Come nerd out with friends about whatever makes you happy starting at 8pm UTC-5:
A lifetime ago, I was a jeweler and sculptor.
I exited that world at exactly the right time, both for my own spirit and the direction the industry was heading.
I left my old portfolio up for years, with a message which said that I had run away (literally) to join the circus.
Today I took down the old site.
The stories and photos might reappear someday. For now it's got my memories stirring, and me feeling like I finally ended an era.
Wisdom: It's better to finish things than let them end.
For 'Cyber Monday' you can either dress like a robot for our #CircusInPlace video chat, or simply attend as your traditional tech-savvy selves.
There's probably several jokes to be made about us being ac-robotic. Bring yours to the chat!

One of these days I'll understand how mastodon occasionally "eats" an entire thread of conversation.
Until then, I'll wonder why I can no longer see a conversation I was a part of a week and a half ago.
I didn't delete my posts...so where did they go?
I suppose the fedi was hungry for paper maiche content, and I should be pleased that I was able to give it a snack.
To my knowledge, no relation:
I really enjoyed this take:
This evening, there will be no black Friday sale on admission to our #CircusInPlace video chat.
Fortunately such things are always completely free of cost, and thus this announcement will have no impact on your post-holiday shenanigans. ;)
I've been described by reliable sources as a zen fool, benevolent super villain, misanthropic community leader, clown father figure and Impish Cabaret Rasputin.
