DIARY OF A MADMAN
May 5th

Hey there,

Little bit of excitement has crossed the news desk here. A young riot girl in Van Nuys left me an e-mail this week that her father has actual footage of a hoop snake on some old super 8 that he shot in the 60's. Interesting, yes?

What's that? You say you ain't never heard of no hoop snake? Well the story goes that a hoop snake can grab it's tail with it's mouth to form a wheel out of it's body and roll to escape danger (or flee the scene if he just got caught breaking and entering)

I called the father (you can file him under gruff but lovable) He'll part with the footage but he wants some bucks.

Dare I send him money sight unseen?

Dare I empty the piggy bank?

Dare I live with out electricity to satisfy my own curiosity?

How much, you ask? Well lets just say it's about a weeks take home pay back when I was working the last McJob.

I know, I know, Any one with half a brain would say "Heck no Derek, save your money for something worthwhile like a 401K program."

Thing is I don't like 401Ks. Don't dig banks that much either. I do like hoop snakes. (well I've never actually seen one but I like the IDEA of a hoop snake)

Lemme think about it.

hurdy gur,
Derek "Mind on my money and my money on a hoop snake" Barnes
