my friends were this way: david, the flaming boy on his way to new york to meet his destiny as an actor. david is just eighteen, though you wouldn't no to look at him, & his step father looks like john goodman's character from the big lebowski. david used to struggle with anorexia- wtf. chad sat across the asile from us- he was on his way back to princeton, not that he knew what he wanted to study. he described himself as lazy but the way i read it, he's just happy with a month by month lifestyle. he was reading the hitchhikers guide to the galaxy. nathan i don't have so much to say about- he used to live in the south but moved to ohio- he goes to philly for cheesesteaks & to visit his brother. then there was ellen, who was easily the most popular girl on the train- everyone knew her. she's moving from kansas city to philly to live with her daughter. ellen & nathan were the first ones to figure out that i'm a bit of a psychopath. ellen also offered to be my mother. for real she did. oh & i was awake when we stopped in latrobe! super 33 excitement!
but eventually the train did get to new york, & like a big time hot shot i was met there by adoring fans. or at least, an adoring fan & her roomate. jenny was there, with aviva, & though we couldn't find them at first, eventually at the blarney rock pub (home of the satanic leprechaun) we discovered ranai & littlewashu, & danielle was already a little in her cup. & i can't talk about them now, because danielle just got out of the shower, but i'll scoop all the dirt on those two foxy ladies later. like, littlewashu's amtrack jacket, & the story of how danielle stole her scarf, & other tales of misbegotten woe. featuring the short story "there was a hole in the wall & then jenny fell through it into the basement." after the bar-tastic tribulations (m: "is anybody using that stool?" guy: "do you not see me fucking standing here?" m: "yes, but is anyone sitting on that stool?") we came into brooklyn. which was an event.
mostly when i say event, i mean jenny was really drunk, & when i tried to get her off the bench she told me how much she didn't love me. then she ran into a train going away from her home! so i chased her, & on the train she sort of came too, & asked where she was & what was going on. & i was mad at her before because i was drunk too, but by then i just wanted to take care of her, & so i explained that we needed to get off the train, so we did, & the station was outdoors so i took off my coat for her to wear. then we came home, the end, unless you count the kinky sex that followed. then really the end.
oh, except i really really liked cobralingus alot, & didn't think it was too pretentious or anything. & i took danielle to her first new york deli. oh, & it was a big funny deal getting her tokens for the subway. & & &. ok now the end. oh, & danielle's voice is diffrent when she's sober. & kerry has a mad "science" necklace. ok the end.
