Summer Song

Courtney declared the evening a success, so it was a success. Toward the end some actor I didn’t know showed up, but Court relegated him to the “B-list at best” and we didn’t intersect. When we got home, Chris informed us that Claire had gone to bed, so him and me and Court and Colin […]


I should probably tell you what Claire was feeling, but the fact is I really don’t know. When she was having the terrible nausea, I could relate to it, since yeah, that’s something I’ve felt. But I didn’t have anything that I could relate to what was happening to her overall. Plus she was very […]

More importantly, neither was anyone else. Bart made some noises about having to get up early for real and that […]
