This is awkward. I don't want it to be, but it is. We've become the sort of friends that are only friends because we don't know how not to be. After 13 years it's not meaningful, it's habitual. … [Read More...]

This is 200

This is 200

I can't sleep. That's a relatively normal thing, really, as anyone who has gotten completely coherent emails from me at 3am can attest. I don't sleep.
