[Comments] (4) : Sumana said I need to post another entry about my going to Arkansas so people don't think the previous one was for Canadian April Fool's Day or something. So, let's talk about Arkansas. I remember being in Texarkana and then being in Tennessee on a road trip when I was younger, but I don't remember going through Arkansas, even though that's the only reasonable way it could have happened.

What is there to do in Little Rock? Sumana and I were there last weekend and there was not much besides a farmer's market and a Red Bull promotional event. This makes me feel as though the people in charge of my Truman Show-style simulated life were caught unprepared by my sudden excursion, and that when I come back it will be bustling.

Things to do in Little Rock include:

reading "Primary Colors"

starving down Markham on a Sunday morning because there is nowhere to eat brunch

working so late or coming in so early that you hear the 4:30am passenger train come through Union Station, and think about getting on it, even though you don't know where it's going

I looked at Mapquest, because I wasn't sure how far Chicago is from Little Rock... turns out it's about 700 miles... I was hoping it was closer. I think I forgot about Missouri. Anyway, I realize that doesn't say much about what there is to do in Little Rock, except perhaps that driving to Chicago is probably something that doesn't happen in Little Rock very often.

Don't worry, everybody forgets about Missouri.
