'the adventures of a thirty-ish university graduate' or, alternately and perhaps much more aptly: 'as mad as a barking fox'

it's a hellified way to start your day

i wake up to faye softly asking me where she can find a towel, shuffling quietly around in the early-morning sunshine that's making my toes tingle. after i manage to get something out i roll over, laughing because i'm still entirely drunk.

when i close my eyes, i see lime juice, cocktails, sugared glasses, ice buckets, bottles of merlot, liz dancing with a stuffed snake, pedro explaing that beesan fell asleep in the end of the end come down way, kelly bray swaying slowly on the balcony, kiersten and victoria asking me where the frat boys are. i see a couch full of fourth years, their faces blank as i try to explain who larry gowan was [hellooo criminal mind?] i see kyle okeefe laughing his ass off because we're too stoned to move, repeatedly telling me with glee that he's fucked. i see kate and morgen.

mostly i just see that nostalgic happy feeling i was searching so desperately for in human form, dancing to bad music, mugs clinking in salutations to the end of the year, teeth exposed in smiles that reach into everyone's eyes.

now that's the way to end a year.
