    Whoooooa!

    On September 7th 2008, Tumbleweed Vortex became self aware.

    I`ve seen dust devils that will eat your hat up, but nothing like that.

    omg this reminds me of when i was in primary school playing rounders in the schoolyard, and there was a tornado of leaves and crisp packets, and one of my friends was in the middle of it going round in circles screaming xD

    that was hilarious!

    I haven`t seen a tumbleweed in FOREVER and I live in Arizona.

    That`s where they all went.. I bet they`re banding together to stop that Particle Accelerator in Switzerland.

    Some people get very weird about seeing tumbleweeds. I once saw a guy with NY license plates stop his truck in the middle of the road, get out and gingerly move the tumbleweed, then get back in and keep going.

    I also saw a couple of women with WA plates driving with a tumbleweed in the back seat of their car. What in the world were they going to do with that thing?

    "...dancing with me. Like a little kid begging me to play with it. For fifteen minutes. And that`s the day I realized there was this entire life behind things, and... this incredibly benevolent force, that wanted me to know there was no reason to be afraid, ever. Video`s a poor excuse, I know. But it helps me remember... and I need to remember... Sometimes there`s so much beauty in the world I feel like I can`t take it, like my heart`s going to cave in."
