I'm not sure that civil engineering, heights or sky diving are the right accompaniments for a psychedelic experience. In my day it was all about wall hangings, picture books and listening to Saucerful of Secrets - or a walk in the woods for the more intrepid.

A Three Stooges marathon is cool too. Linda told me that her and her friends once locked a tripping friend in a big dog's pen for an evening. Dude didn't know the dog.





I married a f*cking monster.
