The Universe - cont'd

______________________

My mind and me: Like Pizpot Gargravarr explains in length.

"I think we were probably not very well suited," said Gargravarr again at length; "we never seemed to be happy doing the same things. We always had the greatest arguments over sex and fishing. Eventually we tried to combine the two, but that only led to disaster, as you can probably imagine. And now my body refuses to let me in. It won't even see me..."

He paused again tragically.

" It says i only inhibit it. I pointed out that in fact i was meant to inhabit it, and it said that that was exactly the sort of smart alec remark that got right up a body's left nostril, and so we left it. It will probably get custody of my forename."

"Oh...?" said Zaphod faintly. "And what's that?"

"Pizpot," said the voice. "My name is Pizpot Gargarvarr. Says it all really, doesn't it?"

"Errr...." said Zaphod sympathetically.

______________________

At that moment another dismal scream rent the air and Zaphod shuddered.

"What can do that to a guy? he breathed.

"The Universe," said Gargravarr simply, "the whole infinite Universe. The infinte suns, the infinite distances between them and yourself an invisible dot, infinitely small."

Arroclint,

Didn't think you'd show! well, i obviously do think zephod has some kinks in the brain (!). What kink doesn't make someone cool, though, yeah? :)

If the TPV can endorse him, then why wouldn't i? :D

But seriously, yeah he does have an edge. An edge, i like.

as idiotic as he can get, its his air of utter arrogance that impresses me. to him the whole world is an awesome cool place only cause of him.
as mental as that sounds its bloody wicked!

He's got two heads, four arms and amnesia attacks mastered by the masters. Sure he's important, with limbs and a life like that you gotta be. It's a bit like this y'know -

Do not be over-righteous
Neither be overwise --
Why destroy yourself?
Do not be overwicked,
and do not be a fool --
Why die before your time?
It is good to grasp the one and not let go of the other.
The man who fears God will avoid all extremes.

Foot note to the last sentence means - Or will follow them both! ;)
