Hes also an absent minded disassociated borderline psychotic narcoleptic insomniac.What I think about when I go to the job follows Paul through three years of stumbling just along the edge of a functional existence.He fades into consciousness on busses pulling into stops in towns he doesnÕt recognize, in taxicabs other people have apparently already paid for, shady 1AM meetings with guys at bingo parlors, and back room drinks with hardcore lingerie models over late night infomercials. He wakes up in raw motel rooms while searching out Middle America, then finds himself wandering through lower Manhattan on Sept. 13, 2001, having apparently been charged with writing a guide to getting around New York after the Disaster.Paul seems to bumble through Time, just barely able to maintain on the most basic levels, while somehow absorbing and articulating the more complex mechanisms, and underlying patterns which drive the situations he interacts with.Many people find this amusing, sometimes even charmingly cute- making them want to bring him home and take care of him. But it can be a real liability when trying to conduct a Regular Life.
