Collagesity Ruminations

Baker Bloch admires the jagged Collagesity skyline and thinks, “this could be it. This is where the buck stops.”

That night he head over again to Carrcassonnee’s place for needed guidance after a fairly rough day. But Carr. herself has had a choppy spell recently. What’s going on? Interface is what’s going on. Collagesity is being affected by those that observe from the outside. So I think they need to talk — this most representative of representatives for myself, the chief artist of Collagesity, and then the chief deity of the town whose very existence has been threatened.

BBloch:

How are you holding up Carrcassonnee?

Carr.:

Baker Blinker took care of the problem. That’s all I’m going to say about it. I’m not going to rattle on so that you can put my inner hopes and fears on the blog for all these people to look at and dissect. I’m not like you.

BBloch:

Oh sure you are. You *are* me.

Carr.:

You’re going to have to get up soon when Baker Blinker arrives. That’s one of her special privileges now. She gets to sit in *that* seat. She’s such a beauty. She’s helped me so much recently. You are lucky to have her as a sidekick. You should just let her take over, eh? Just let her sit in your seat, acquire your friends, your memories. She is the male inside the female, a better balance. She has changed since entering Your Second Lyfe. My Second Lyfe. Look at you.

BBloch:

I know. I haven’t changed much. I did remove my mask about 6 years back. It was scaring the kids. But what of you? You don’t change.

Carr.:

I’m changing all the time, however. I am you. I am [ delete name]. I am Fitz. I am Lisa. I’m a lot of people you don’t know about yet.

BBloch:

What *did* happened between you and Wheeler?

(Baker Blinker enters)

Carr.:

Good. Now we can start in earnest. Get up Other Baker, for that is what you’ll always be now.

BBloch:

Alright, good enough.

Carr.:

Good *evening* Baker Blinker. My special friend. I thank you so much for just being here. For helping me. I haven’t had this much help since another special friend Dr. Horace P. Blood left the scene. He or she knew my peculiar ins and outs. I’ve kind of been lost without her all these months. I was at wits end to be frank. I *allowed* a vulnerability. Wheeler slipped in. But it’s good you two guys are still buds.

BBlinker:

We are. She’s under control, Carrcassonnee. She’s sorry it happened. She got carried away. She *is* powerful. But I’m strong too. I took care of the problem.

Carr.:

Just as I was telling Baker Bloch over there.

BBloch:

What *did* happen? I know you won the wrestling contest.

Carr.:

Listen close Baker Bloch. Listen to what real change does to a person. Increases their mettle. Makes them tough.

BBlinker (to BBloch):

It wasn’t much. Well, it *was* scary. I almost lost. I turned it around in the end. I thought of Karoz, and how he cares for me so much. That pulled me through to the end. The marriage is still on.

Carr.:

Oh it has to be. I’m marrying you! Right here. Right where these chairs are now. ‘Cept Karoz will be in Baker Bloch’s place. He’s secondary too. He doesn’t change neither.

BBlinker:

He’s trying.

Carr.:

He’s so transparent he’s basically grass. His ass is grass, as they say. Barney Rubles?

BBlinker:

Wheeler also wants to talk to you Carrcassonnee.

Carr.:

Don’t let that *bitch* back in here.

BBlinker:

Now now, it wasn’t that bad.

Carr.:

Baker Blinker, with all due respect, it *was* that bad.

BBlinker:

Now I think you’re overreacting Carrcassonnee.

Carr.:

My full name as well. You must be convinced of this. Well… go on.

BBlinker:

Wheeler was doing what Wheeler was suppose to do. She *can* take over the town. Destroy it even. If we didn’t have a central core, a central fire. And it can’t be just you, just me, just Karoz, just Baker Bloch, just Hucka Doobie. It has to be all of us, working together. Working as one.

Carr.:

The old one for all thing. I’m buying.

BBlinker (finishing):

*And*, it has to be Wheeler too. You and she must make amends. We’ll leave you alone. Get up Other Baker (she laughs and waves Baker Bloch up).

Carr.:

*No*, you can’t take advantage of my relative immobility. You *know* I can’t… oh… hello Wheeler.

Wheeler:

Hello Carrcassonnee.

BBlinker:

We’ll be right outside Carrcassonnee.

(Baker Blinker and Baker Bloch leave the gazebo)
