Anyway. We finally left as the place was closing. I was exhausted, anticipating a hangover, and having been amazed by my ability to walk a straight line, silently attempting to repeat the alphabet backwards. Just as I was about to express my exhaustion, Martina piped up and said, Iâm not tired at all! Want to have a beer or some wine when we get back?
Martina. You know that sound youâre hearing right now? Those are birds chirping. And see how the sky is changing color? THE FUCKING SUN IS RISING.
We had wine. And more cigarettes. She asked me how I was doing about the most recent twist of the knife and then recounted a story of a friend who called her from thailand with the news that her boyfriend had given her herpes and HPV. I conceded (reluctantly) that it could be worse. Spencer fucked me, but at least he didnât leave any diseases behind. When Martina suggested we now move on to beer I had to put my foot down. I wasnât wasted so much as dehydrated and vaguely nauseated by the smell of cigarette smoke all over me. Of course, having bid my farewells, I did nothing to remedy either of these problems, neither drinking water (instead stupidly chose orange fanta?), nor taking a shower (tooooo farrrr).
people have started to complain
itâs been a few weeks. this has been my life. anca smokes in the bathroom when sheâs stressed. I donât like the taste. it makes me feel slightly ill. itâs delightfully self-destructive.
I wake. I try to go to class. But usually I donât. I take my medicine. It takes away my sadness and my appetite. I try to remember to eat. But I usually I donât. Gwen asks me to drink a glass of milk. She asks nicely. I agree. But usually I donât. Sometimes I make it to class and I try to pay attention. The words on the board blur together and professors avoid eye contact. Germans are too polite not to look away. I donât try to hide it from people. My give a damnâs busted. I read. and read. and read. and read. people comment on my voracious appetite for literature. Catch-22, Wuthering Heights, fantasy fantasy fantasy. I devour. Hours. Days.
I sat in the theater and wondered if it would be equal to my books. to distract me. it did the trick. I was pleasantly surprised.
I listen to the songs over and over and over and over. the pleasure that my sadness brings. I stroke it, I caress it, I try to throw it away then frantically dig it out of the trash. Iâm scared to let it go. I light a fag. and another and another. my appetite blinks out of existence. I cry and distantly note that I no longer sob. I weaken, I tire, I read and read and read. I inhale. it pleases me. the nicotine is nothing compared to the knowledge of days being shaved off, one puff at a time. it is a slow cowardly suicide. one that people can accept. they protest, but they assume it helps me cope. it does. it reminds me that it is possible to die. it is possible to die. I read and read and read. heroines and thieves and magic in unexpected places blurrrr. I consider the life of pi. I consider turning to God. he is the better story. I take a shower and look for Sascha. I walk outside. I light a cigarette. Lyrics to my sad sad life flit across my mind. I think about writing them down. Commemorating. Explaining. She said that it would be wonderful to say you regretted it. It would be easy. I look for a pen to record The Hours that I face. always the hours. the minutes. the years. the days after that and after that and after that. Sometimes I find a pen. But usually I donât. I wonder if someone will be able to deal with this. with me. always this. it always comes back. I think that maybe they will. But probably they wonât.
no more teachers' dirty looks
one week of school successfully completed. all in all I think I maybe attended three classes. they like to start off slowly here in Deutschland. donât want anyone overexerting themselves too early on. a few things Iâve noticed thus far. no one takes notes on their laptops. in fact, Iâm not entirely convinced people own laptops. also, itâs somehow ok for students to talk during lecture? even in small classes of 10 or 12 people. the professor talks and sort ofâ¦disregards the fact that his audience is carrying on mini conversations. indiscreetly. the one time a professor called someone out for this was during my russian class. finally! I thought. I get to see some first class German discipline. psych! she told them that it was fine for them to talk, but only if it was in Russian.
WHO ARE YOU PEOPLE?
Also, âreadingâ doesnât appear to be a thing here. One of the Folk & Myth classes I shopped had a tentative reading list. Not written out on the syllabus. Just orally given to us at the end of class. The professor said, oh yeah, hereâs this book. It would probably be a good idea if you had it read by the end of the semester. Then, my personal favorite, was a four hour long seminar. I asked the girl sitting next to me what books we would be reading, and she looked at me surprised. âWhy, we donât have any reading.â Ummâ¦Iâm sorry. Why is this a seminar, then? And how the hell are we going to use FOUR HOURS if we donât have any reading to discuss? Not to worry, though. Iâm definitely not taking the class. Itâs on Cultural Geography, and I had never heard of this topic so I decided to check it out. 10 minutes into the class I glanced at my neighborâs syllabus and saw that during week 8 we would be discussing Sex & the City. I wondered if it would be rude for me to just pick up my things and leave. Concluded that it would be, so I managed to wait an hour and a half until our 20-minute break. And then just didnât come back. Knowing the Germans, they didnât wait for me to start the class. Punctuality is their only God. The last interesting thing happened in my second Folk & Myth class. It was 15 past, the exact moment when class was supposed to start. I hear someone running behind me and turn around just in time to see the professor zip past, out of breath, and take up his place at the podium. I was so stunned. And I realized, that Iâd never actually seen a professor run. I wanted to say to him, youâre a professor! your studentsâ time is meaningless! didnât you get the memo!
Iâve never been somewhere with this few black people. Itâs awkward. Like when we went to the Sinti and Roma museum and our guide pulled me and a white midwestern girl aside and said, âit would be like you calling her nigger in the US, no?â to describe the derogatory term used for Roma under Nazi Germany. Hmm. Thanks for that. On Thursday, the end of my work week, I saw a total of 3 black people. One was speaking accent-free English. One was albino. I only recognized him as black because his white hair had a nappy texture. The same day, I saw 3 times as many white people with dreadlocks. Literally. As in 9. I counted. And then rounded down. Hereâs the German wikipedia page for dreadlocks: www.de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dreadlocks Notice that 2 of the 3 pictures feature white people.

"You tell me you live with the threat of my extinction...I live with it, too."
Itâs time for an attempt at closure. And for me, that first and foremost includes honest, uninhibited fury. Every time I think Iâm getting there, starting to forget. That Syliviaâs forgetfulness, like a kind snow, has numbed and covered them, something new comes up. Some new delightful little detail that violates what peace Iâve made with the last weeks. So Iâm just going to have this one last depiction of how I have and continue to experience this. And then I never want to hear anything about this situation or these people again. To clarify, âthese peopleâ include: Frances, Leo, and Spencer. This is the situation as I saw it. People (not necessarily the same people I never want to hear from again) who thought that I was ABOUT TO KILL MYSELF. That I was in so much danger, I couldnât be left alone. That my Dean needed to be contacted and someone needed to be sent to my flat in Germany at some God awful time. They disaFUCKINGppeared. And somehow, it seems, they expected that my heretofore FUCKED TO HELL brain chemistry would, in an incredible example of âtaking one for the team,â get its shit together because it was no longer convenient to be dangerously out of control. Someone else was in need, so my pain and my crisis would have to wait. I had had my turn, and now it was someone elseâs. This was hard to hear. But. At least I took comfort in the knowledge that Spencer was really in need and that they had simply been worried and distracted and panicked and forgotten about me. It stung. It stung a lot. But it was a surmountable betrayal. And NOW I learn that there was an actual conscious PLAN to stop talking to me because talking to me was hard for SPENCER? Spencer who was surrounded by people who cared about him and knew him and loved him who, while in a very dark place, was not at risk of slitting his wrists? And to think I actually felt GUILTY because of what I was putting him through. And worried, so worried about how he was doing and whether or not he was going to recover from this. Worried about what I had done to him. What my disease had done to him. Worried about how maybe I will only just make other people who want to be with me broken, too. Meanwhile, he was already doing better but people decided it would be best if they didnât mention to me that my boyfriend of two years about whom I was terrified was improving. Donât tell Courtney that heâs out of the hospital, then sheâll want to (gasp!) TALK TO HER BOYFRIEND. Better to let me sit. Alone. In the dark. In my room. Waiting for someone to contact me. Wondering if I would be able to actually feel my heart slow down if I slit my wrists or if I would simply fall into a sleep and not wake up. No matter, it would be better for poor weak Spencer. I didnât HAVE anyone to take me to the doctor, but instead had to take a cab with a teacher I barely knew at 4 in the morning to be probed by only German-speaking psychiatrists. To be asked to pee in a cup and then wait in someoneâs office holding a non-lidded sample of my urine while people wandered around muttering to themselves. To be told that plans were being made for me to come back to the States because depressed people donât DESERVE to live their lives and experience what they can and try to make the most of the happiness they do find. Why, because that would be a liability, of course. And then my ex-boyfriendâs response to this is, well I ACTUALLY left you in the middle of a crisis because I had been unhappy for a long time and it just occurred to me suddenly that I didnât want this anymore. ARE YOU TRYING TO MAKE YOURSELF LOOK LIKE AN AWFUL PERSON? So, what youâre saying is that it wasnât really that you just couldnât handle it anymore and your brain stopped functioning, but rather you had this epiphany that wasnât time sensitive and you were just too cruel or selfish or idiotic to give me maybe a week after my two psych ward stays and however many hours staring out of a window or at my box of helping hands razor blades before you ditched me. Classy. Well it seems that Frances is right. I am very bitter. And while it wasnât my intention the first time to âruin someoneâs dayâ I certainly fucking hope this ruins yours. And continues to ruin them long into the future. I hope that this stays with you. Because believe me, you deserve it.

Iâm sort of in a bad place about humanity right now. I had been hoping that my misanthropy would gradually transform into enthusiasm for everyone and everything. Iâm not sure why I thought this might happen as it hasnât for the past 2 decades. Instead I feel sort of generally disappointed with people. This disappointment then makes me wonder what I do that makes people want to give up on humanity and the whole thing just ends with me thinking that people are awful, I am awful, everyone is awful. Such optimism! Blocking group drama that is not my own but hit close to home just came up. I may or may not have handled it appropriately. As of right now, I think I did, but who knows how Iâll feel about it in retrospect. I guess I just want to feel safe with people and want people to feel safe with others and me and it just doesnât seem to be going my way these days. There are, however, some notable exceptions that shouldnât be overlooked. But being the general Negative Nancy that I am, the Sams and Mandys and Lenas and Lauras of my world get drowned out by the rest. The thing that really makes me worried and paranoid and scared is that when I voice my protest, people always seem soâ¦confused as to what Iâm trying to say? Or outraged that I called them out for something. Like I was being unreasonable and/or overreacting. Does this mean that they really donât want or expect the same level of consideration from their friends as I want and expect from mine? Are there people who really are cool with just having a bunch of friends they party with and laugh with and play video games with but upon whom they canât rely? I just donât understand. I feel like it comes up for everyone at some point and yet as long as itâs not their turn to be overlooked or mistreated, theyâre fine with it happening. As long as they arenât being left out when everyone goes to the bar or not told when everyone goes to dinner, then itâs not important. It makes me want to shake people and scream THIS HAS HAPPENED TO YOU BEFORE HOW HAVE YOU ALREADY FORGOTTEN??? Especially since Iâve pointed out inconsideration on behalf of people I donât really give a shit about. I just feel like in the past weeks Iâve whispered âPoohâ¦?â to a lot of people, and have been made sure of very few. The thing is, ultimately it doesnât matter if Iâm being self-righteous about something thatâs none of my business (as Frances would argue). Because I am being who I am. I am thinking how I think. And, being someone who doesnât believe in free will, Iâm stuck with this person and these thoughts. And if theyâre outside the norm, what does that mean for me finding meaningful friendships that I can find fulfilling? This is a struggle and a nagging worry Iâve had at least since middle school, and it always seems to come back up again. You are who you are and I think who I am may mean that Iâm fucked.
same question, different perspectives.

Me: This is going to hurt a lot, isn't it.
Lena: What? You cut yourself for fun, Courtney Kennedy. You'll be fine.
Me: This is going to hurt a lot, isn't it.
Lars (tattoo artist): Yes.
Lars: Are you SURE you want the piercing on your tit?
8:14:56 AM Courtney Kennedy: ok listen to my night
8:15:06 AM Courtney Kennedy: Tara came over around 11
8:15:09 AM Courtney Kennedy: and while she was on her way
8:15:18 AM Courtney Kennedy: Tobit texted me and was like, I'm sorry. I'm wasted.
8:15:25 AM Courtney Kennedy: which was odd, given that it was only 10
8:15:26 AM Courtney Kennedy: barely
8:15:27 AM Courtney Kennedy: if that
8:15:37 AM Courtney Kennedy: so then I called him and tried to figure out where he was
8:15:39 AM Courtney Kennedy: but couldn't
8:15:42 AM Courtney Kennedy: and he was soooo drunk
8:15:47 AM Courtney Kennedy: and then he put his friend on the phone
8:15:51 AM Courtney Kennedy: who was even MORE drunk
8:15:54 AM Courtney Kennedy: but spoke less English
8:16:00 AM Courtney Kennedy: and he proceeded to talk at me for like 10 minutes
8:16:14 AM Courtney Kennedy: and at the end I still had no fucking clue what he was talking about and had used all of my minutes
8:16:22 AM strublights: :(
8:16:27 AM Courtney Kennedy: so then I told Tobit to text or call if he was going out later
8:16:43 AM Courtney Kennedy: and then Tara arrived and we went out to this bar called Ipunkt
8:16:48 AM Courtney Kennedy: and I was told that one could dance there
8:16:56 AM Courtney Kennedy: but no one was dancing and they were playing awful english music
8:16:58 AM Courtney Kennedy: so I ordered a beer
8:17:01 AM Courtney Kennedy: and Tara had a drink
8:17:05 AM Courtney Kennedy: she finished hers and we left
8:17:12 AM Courtney Kennedy: but the bouncer person was like, you have to finish that inside
8:17:19 AM Courtney Kennedy: so I had to gulp down my beer really fast
8:17:22 AM Courtney Kennedy: buzzed.
8:17:26 AM Courtney Kennedy: also I was carded on the way in
8:17:30 AM Courtney Kennedy: they weren't sure I was 18?
8:17:40 AM Courtney Kennedy: anyway so then we leave
8:17:42 AM Courtney Kennedy: to go to tangente
8:17:54 AM Courtney Kennedy: but on the way I decide we should stop by villa for a cocktail
8:18:02 AM Courtney Kennedy: they are only 4 bucks there
8:18:11 AM Courtney Kennedy: so I had a piÃ±a colada
8:18:17 AM Courtney Kennedy: and Tara had something
8:18:23 AM Courtney Kennedy: she had also had vodka before she arrived
8:18:25 AM Courtney Kennedy: so she was drunk
8:18:27 AM Courtney Kennedy: at this point
8:18:32 AM Courtney Kennedy: finished our drinks
8:18:36 AM Courtney Kennedy: paid and left
8:18:40 AM Courtney Kennedy: tipsy.
8:18:50 AM Courtney Kennedy: made our way to tangente, which turned out to be closed
8:19:03 AM Courtney Kennedy: so we decided to go to a club on the other side of HauptstraÃe
8:19:06 AM Courtney Kennedy: we get there and it's packed
8:19:09 AM Courtney Kennedy: we have to wait to get in
8:19:13 AM Courtney Kennedy: but can go to the bar while we wait
8:19:17 AM Courtney Kennedy: I get a mojito
8:19:18 AM Courtney Kennedy: drunk.
8:19:30 AM Courtney Kennedy: then I go to the bathroom in the men's bathroom
8:19:43 AM Courtney Kennedy: and some guy keeps knocking on the door and they are all laughing blah blah blah
8:19:49 AM Courtney Kennedy: so then we decide we don't want to wait anymore
8:19:52 AM Courtney Kennedy: and Tara will just get food
8:19:56 AM Courtney Kennedy: so she goes to get DÃ¶nner
8:20:11 AM Courtney Kennedy: and then I decide that I don't want to sleep alone so I'm going to go wake up Tobit
8:20:23 AM Courtney Kennedy: give her my keys, and stumble all the fucking way over the bridge
8:20:28 AM strublights: so you are drunk, at this point?
8:20:30 AM Courtney Kennedy: yes
8:20:32 AM Courtney Kennedy: very.
8:20:39 AM Courtney Kennedy: so I wake up one extremely grumpy tobit
8:20:46 AM Courtney Kennedy: hahaha and crawl up the stairs
8:20:52 AM Courtney Kennedy: and he grabs a bucket because he thinks I might get sick
8:20:57 AM Courtney Kennedy: and somehow I manage to make it into bed
8:21:14 AM Courtney Kennedy: 10 minutes later I decide that it's too hot and take off my shirt and pass back out
8:21:26 AM Courtney Kennedy: Tobit notices and groans and is like, omg pleaaase put a shirt on
8:21:35 AM Courtney Kennedy: I cannot sleep with a shirtless girl in my bed
8:21:40 AM Courtney Kennedy: so I sort of fall out of the bed
8:21:43 AM Courtney Kennedy: and am looking around
8:21:52 AM Courtney Kennedy: and then decide that the floor is the most comfortable thing in existence
8:21:54 AM Courtney Kennedy: and just lie down
8:22:20 AM Courtney Kennedy: but then I think, Tobit is going to be weird about this, I can deal with this. I'm just going to suck it up and go be uncomfortable and cold in my apartment
8:22:29 AM Courtney Kennedy: so I put my dress and stalkings back on
8:22:32 AM Courtney Kennedy: and grab my wallet
8:22:33 AM Courtney Kennedy: and shoes
8:22:37 AM Courtney Kennedy: and open the door
8:22:48 AM Courtney Kennedy: he actually hears this and is like what the fuck where are you going?
8:22:51 AM Courtney Kennedy: and I slur something
8:23:02 AM Courtney Kennedy: and then crawl down the hall and down the stairs
8:23:08 AM Courtney Kennedy: he comes after me and turns on the light
8:23:18 AM Courtney Kennedy: only THEN do I realize that hahaha I fucking forgot my glasses and can't see SHIT
8:23:19 AM strublights: ahahahaha this is hilarious in general
8:23:41 AM strublights: the idea of you drunkenly stumbling somewhere is appealing, terrifying, and makes me feel much better about myself in general
8:23:50 AM Courtney Kennedy: hahaha
8:23:52 AM Courtney Kennedy: I was SO DRUNK
8:23:56 AM Courtney Kennedy: oh wait
8:23:58 AM Courtney Kennedy: at the food place
8:24:05 AM Courtney Kennedy: I was so drunk and these guys started talking to us in english
8:24:18 AM Courtney Kennedy: and I was like I can't speak English
8:24:24 AM Courtney Kennedy: and they were like we can hear your north american accent!
8:24:33 AM strublights: hahahahahahaha
8:24:36 AM Courtney Kennedy: and then I went outside and was babbling on about how I love foreign languages
8:24:37 AM strublights: i can't speak english
8:24:39 AM strublights: generally lol
8:24:42 AM strublights: this is AWESOME courtney
8:24:43 AM Courtney Kennedy: and started speaking russian
8:24:49 AM Courtney Kennedy: I said that in German though!
8:24:53 AM strublights: you were SO THE STEREOTYPICAL DRUNK GIRL
8:24:57 AM strublights: THAT IS AWESOME
8:25:07 AM Courtney Kennedy: hahaha I was so silly it was fantastic
8:25:22 AM Courtney Kennedy: ok so Tobit just picks me up and throws me over his shoulder and carries me back upstairs
8:25:26 AM Courtney Kennedy: but I'm determined to go home
8:25:36 AM Courtney Kennedy: and I tell him that this isn't going to work out if he's going to be weird about it
8:25:46 AM Courtney Kennedy: and that I'm just going to have to find a nice gay german boy
8:25:59 AM Courtney Kennedy: and then I grab my glasses and immediately stumble down the stairs again and make it outside
8:26:06 AM Courtney Kennedy: so then I am walking along the road
8:26:10 AM Courtney Kennedy: and he calls and asks me where I am
8:26:17 AM Courtney Kennedy: "I'm on...that street...where you live.."
8:26:21 AM Courtney Kennedy: and he is like WAIT THERE
8:26:25 AM Courtney Kennedy: I keep walking, of course
8:26:28 AM Courtney Kennedy: and he shows up with his bike
8:26:32 AM Courtney Kennedy: determined to either walk me home
8:26:36 AM Courtney Kennedy: or bring me back to his room
8:27:11 AM Courtney Kennedy: anyway
8:27:20 AM Courtney Kennedy: so then we run into his friend Andreas
8:27:28 AM Courtney Kennedy: who is SO MUCH MORE DRUNK than me
8:27:37 AM Courtney Kennedy: and he and I sort of are being drunk and ridiculous together
8:27:45 AM Courtney Kennedy: I keep sliding down to sit on the sidewalk, even though it's raining outside and the ground is wet
8:27:55 AM Courtney Kennedy: and then I say something about his english being as bad as my german and he leaves
8:28:02 AM Courtney Kennedy: so I'm determined that I'm going home by myself
8:28:07 AM Courtney Kennedy: and Tobit is determined that I'm not
8:28:14 AM Courtney Kennedy: and then finally I start to be worn down
8:28:18 AM Courtney Kennedy: and turn to go back to his room
8:28:20 AM Courtney Kennedy: but THEN
8:28:27 AM Courtney Kennedy: he asks, "so what is Spencer like for a boy?"
8:28:30 AM Courtney Kennedy: and I ask what do you mean?
8:28:32 AM strublights: ...
8:28:34 AM strublights: hahaha
8:28:45 AM Courtney Kennedy: and he's like, "I'm starting to understand you a bit more. And I think that it must be hard to be your boyfriend."
8:28:46 AM Courtney Kennedy: ....
8:28:50 AM Courtney Kennedy: so I get REALLY upset
8:28:58 AM Courtney Kennedy: and am like, yeah he thinks so, too
8:29:04 AM Courtney Kennedy: and turn around and run in the opposite direction
8:29:08 AM Courtney Kennedy: and he calls me on the phone
8:29:11 AM Courtney Kennedy: but I ignore it
8:29:14 AM Courtney Kennedy: so I make it across the bridge
8:29:37 AM Courtney Kennedy: and I'm walking and upset and this drunk guy sees me and says something incomprehensible
8:29:45 AM Courtney Kennedy: and I look up and he looks at me and asks
8:29:51 AM Courtney Kennedy: "arbeitest du?"
8:29:52 AM Courtney Kennedy: ....
8:29:57 AM strublights: what does that mean?
8:29:59 AM strublights: do you work?
8:30:02 AM Courtney Kennedy: are you working
8:30:06 AM strublights: oh
8:30:07 AM strublights: OH
8:30:09 AM strublights: wtf
8:30:09 AM strublights: wow
8:30:11 AM Courtney Kennedy: yes.
8:30:11 AM strublights: what?
8:30:14 AM strublights: wow
8:30:14 AM strublights: that's awful
8:30:15 AM Courtney Kennedy: so I ignore him and keep walking
8:30:23 AM Courtney Kennedy: and then I make it to HauptstraÃe
8:30:28 AM Courtney Kennedy: and walk past this group of people
8:30:31 AM Courtney Kennedy: around our age
8:30:42 AM Courtney Kennedy: and one of them nods toward me and is like, oh there's a schlampe
8:30:44 AM Courtney Kennedy: schlampe = whore
8:30:48 AM strublights: ummm
8:30:50 AM strublights: wow
8:30:51 AM strublights: that's
8:30:52 AM Courtney Kennedy: and then they start talking about it in spanish
8:30:53 AM strublights: uncalled-for
8:30:55 AM strublights: HAHAHA
8:30:56 AM strublights: TARDS
8:30:57 AM Courtney Kennedy: so I say "vete a mierda!"
8:31:00 AM Courtney Kennedy: and they start laughing
8:31:04 AM strublights: DON'T THEY KNOW ALL AMERICANS KNOW SPANISH
8:31:04 AM Courtney Kennedy: and then I finally make it home
8:31:09 AM Courtney Kennedy: hahahaha
8:31:14 AM Courtney Kennedy: and I don't have my keys!
8:31:16 AM Courtney Kennedy: and it's 4 am!
8:31:24 AM Courtney Kennedy: and I squeeze myself through the bars on the gate
8:31:32 AM Courtney Kennedy: and then bang on the door for a long time until tara opens it
8:31:45 AM Courtney Kennedy: and then I take a shitty ass blanket and go sleep on the couch in the kitchen
8:32:30 AM Courtney Kennedy: 3 hours later I wake up, cold, uncomfortable, not rested, completely unable to fall back asleep, and realizing that I should have just stayed at Tobit's. and also that I have giant blister on my foot from my heels.

I made it to my Patient Consult appointment. I don't even know what to say. Nothing lighthearted. I have to change my medication, which is good. EXCEPT. I have to go off my current medz first. For several weeks. For those of you who have seen me on day 3 of no medz, this is terrifying. The doctor asked me what support system I had here in Germany....Umm, I just got here? I don't have friends yet? Monday is my appointment with my actual psychiatrist. We'll see how it goes.
Finally. Peter Burgard and I are becoming chums. Slowly but surely. (Naturally I gravitated toward the biggest asshole in the group). Today he insisted that I'm a misanthrope (true) in response to my displeasure about his pineapple and homeless person joke. Really, Pay-tor. Just because I don't like other people, doesn't mean I want to mock the homeless, you soulless bastard. Dan was with us at the time and giggled with delight in his typical fey way. His body always does a little shimmy that constantly surprises me given his conservative politics. This is the same Dan who, having already consumed EIGHT BEERS in ONE HOUR, stumbled back to us and angrily slash sloppily declared that "those damn Turks" didn't have their shop open for him to purchase more. Really. He said that. In GERMANY.
