James Lileks’s Work to be Stored Near Ark of the Covenant

Wow, this is great:

Between the minutes of 8:25 and 8:35 I transferred one week of the old site archives to the printed version. I’m still working on the big Life’s Work project, assembling everything I’ve ever written into one big crate that will either A) go up in flames someday or B) be bequeathed to the University of Minnesota Library, which will greet the request with polite confusion, accept the crate with kind smiles, shrug when the people who delivered it drive off, then store it somewhere in a vast warehouse next to the Ark of the Covenant.

Okay, maybe the title is a bit of a stretch.  And Mr. Fu supposes he means the Ark of the Covenant that Moses built, not some relic of the aliens from the Halo series.  Though for bad guys the Covenant aliens are pretty cool, kind of Klingon like, but without the whining (that is a rant for another time).
