    I'd want to be a vampire/can-toi, kind of a cross-breed of my two favorite Discordian creatures. But I had to choose 'vampire' because I love them a little more. Especially The Grandfathers.

    Yeah, you're not "simple" in the slightest, Jean.

    I am, I thought for sure you would vote 'taheen'. A duck-headed one specifically.

    with such a lot of Gunslingers around, someone has to be "simple". Anti-elitist. Wandering about and reminding people that when the Power (of gun or authority) usurps the Truth, something must be wrong; that there should be both the Power of the Strong and the Truth of the Weak, or the world will never cease moving on.

    (I will pray my anti-elitism won't bring me to Farson's side... but no, I'll make my home at River Crossing, where I will return now and then, and those sane and noble people will keep me from evil)

    And I'll be right along to sneak around you and put a banana peal in front of you, so you can slip and fall and I can run away screaming laughter.

    I was thinking you were more of a Nigel the Butler type.

    I think I'd like to be either a Breaker or Gunslinger. When I say Breaker, I'm not saying I'd like to actually break the beams though (although I would possibly be caught up in the good feeling vibe,) but a potential breaker, someone with some kind of special gift would be cool.

    I wouldn't want Brautigan's thought lance though. Whilst I'm quite a gentle soul really, my mind does go to dark places sometimes, and I'd hate to think that thinking a dark thought might give some one a brain hemorrhage. Even if it requires focusing one's mind a certain way to send out the 'lance' I'd probably find myself doing it just cos I could. Not that I'd want to kill anyone, but because I don't want to. Ironically, I would find it easy to resist blowing away someone with a gun (in fact no resistance would be required, unless they killed my friends of course... even then, I'm not wired that way), but the mind... well thats different. It'd be like one of those mind-traps Roland speculates about in the Gunslinger, i.e. if someone tells you that thinking about your mother naked will make you hell-bound, you'll likely find yourself thinking about it. I guess I must be pretty warped.

    A form of TK that requires more effort than sending out a thought, or something in line with what Dinky or Sheemie does, would be cool though.
