I googled myself today. I found an artist's residency (way past a deadline) i might have been interested in. i wrote them anyway hoping that maybe, even after 20 days, they still hadn't found the person they were looking for.

Lo and behold, here was one of the entires:

Do ya think there might be a screenplay in this for me? Like "it's a southpark meets terminator II kind of thing, in which i'm picked up by the Iranian revolutionary guard in enemy waters, and one of my interrogators turns out to be this person from craigslist?"
