I always wish I could stay up longer when I'm with Floyd, but I tend to get tired and start to doze off, a fact he always points out. This night I did pretty well though, making it to BART right before the last train took off, which is superlate for me. I was still in danger of falling asleep on BART, though, which I've seen others do on many occasions. I forced myself to sit up straight and took out The Autobiography of Mark Twain. I'm not sure about the movie, but I think in this case the book about the man was more interesting than the reality. Twain can make anything compelling, even Missouri. He made a deal with himself that his life story wouldn't adhere to normal chronologies. "In this autobiography," he wrote to his friend, William Dean Howells, "it is my purpose to wander whenever I please and come back when I get ready."

I can relate.
