Charmaine said...

you've done alot. i hope you know what a lucky man you are?

isn't SSP cool? i've never met her. she was one of my baby sisters roomates in college.

i think the extraordinary way we are all connected is...amazing. but then again, i am currently on vicoden so i'm not responsible 4what i'm saying right now.

my broken hand hurts. i can't sleep.

Fragrant Liar said...

So what's the fave childhood toy you saved?

Briana said...

SSP, I was at that same Stones concert, general admission on the grass. We were in line at 4 a.m. so we were actually quite close.

And they recently opened up the crown of the Statue of Liberty again, in case anyone wants to know. The climb of stairs is a bitch, though, and you are there for about 3 seconds. Worth doing though!

Charmaine said...

Yo, Why don't you publish the first chapter of your book and let us have a go at it?

Fragrant Liar said...

Okay, you're pretty cute. I don't understand why you're having dating issues. Nope.

Charmaine said...

SSP said...

Whaaa? Huh? I don't leave for Ireland until the 19th.

Groan. I was so looking forward to Paris. And seeing you and laughing at all this bullshit.

Groan. Call me sometime.

Charmaine said...

Where did you go, anyway?

I'm here, totally broken hearted...I think someone opened up a vein or something.

There is blood everywhere. Figuratively speaking that is.
