Velo, Rapido | This is about a few different things.
1) If you are not coming to my batizado, that is sort of lame of you but another thing you could do is attend the Grand Opening of the City Reliquary Museum. It will be pretty good. The batizado will be better, you understand, but the Reliquary is good stuff.
2) Many esteemed people are coming to NYC for the batizado. A few of them are staying with my classmate Carleton who is good people and who has lots of room but not so much in the way of comfortable bedding. I can bring him my therm-a-rest, but if anyone feels like loaning me a real air mattress, I will take full responsibility for making sure it makes it back to you in good shape. In this way I don’t have to feel guilty about not hosting anyone myself.
