#6 Adrienne

You were my boyfriend's roommate. Once, you dressed up me and his sister and you put lots of makeup on us. In the photos from that night we all look so giddy.

Stick figures

I shared a taxi home last night with two incredibly skinny girls. The one in the incredibly short skirt said to her friend, "I hate it when it gets this cold... because my legs get so cold." It was about 60 degrees.

#5 Adele

You got a stick shift car for your 16th birthday and taught yourself how to drive it. I guess you had more guts than I realized. Your aunt was my ballet teacher.

#4 Adam

I recommended you for a job with me even though you drove me crazy. We called you PB because you stuck to us like peanut butter. You got fired from that job.

#3 Adam

So, yes, already on day 3 I failed. But see! This is what happened. I got stuck in the airport for 8 hours on Friday and so in my boredom I used down more than half the battery on Rover. And by Sunday morning I only had 20% battery left and it was in the red. So, I did not want to load up the list of 365 lest it die because I had not synced to my computer in a long while and I would lose a good chunk of my 365 list if the battery died. And then, yeah, I totally forgot to do the entry when I got home last night. Oops.

Our moms met in the hospital when we were born. That might have been all we had in common. You came to my college a year after me and you hated it.

#2 Abe

We went to college together ten years ago. I ran into you at a party thrown by a mutual friend and you had no idea who I was. That wasn't very nice.

Bad birthday juju

1. Broke a candle this morning.
2. Our flight to Maine got cancelled. (We're waiting in an airport bar to see if we get on the 9:30 -- now 10:30 -- one.)
3. Spilled half my beer.

#1 Aaron Love

I include your last name because I did love you. I put my sleeping bag beside yours in hopes that you would notice me. You didn't, you rebellious, smelly, foul-mouthed pothead.

365 x 32

Watch this space starting on Oct. 26 . Every day for a year I will write 32 words a day about a different person I have known. I'm using Sheesh Mobile so that I won't need to be by a computer to add entries. The only glitch will be when I'm out of the country.


I saw a woman on 7th Ave. wearing a pink velour bodysuit with leopard-print high heels. Come ON. How ridiculous is that? I mean, pink velour and leopard print do not go together at all.

We're sitting at BJ's brewpub in Boulder overlooking a pedestrian mall. So far I have seen two women with denim skirts, tights, and bike messenger bags the same color as their rain parkas (bright pink and bright green). There is also a homeless-looking man wearing a tri-corner hat.

Both are called geeks

There's a very fine line between con* attendees and beer festival attendees. Both involve costumes although the beer ones are less involved.

*Comic slash fantasy slash sci-fi slash horror

Note: We haven't even been inside the festival yet. These are just observations of the general vicinity.

The shroud is off of one of my favorite NYC buildings. (It is the main post office, in case you didn't know.) The line for human help inside may always be insanely long, but I still love its squat looks.
