of the Day
yesterday | today | tomorrow
james taylor's "fire and rain" had been going
through my head
since yesterday's experiences.
it's a bleak song about suicide,
failure, and addiction (but not plane crashes), so it was
to hear today's wedding band play it just before
the toasts started.
i had never met the bride, but i guessed who she
was based on her
extravagant Gatsbyesque dress of sequins, lace,
and feathers. (it would
have been quite gauche if it had been anybody but
her because you don't
outdress the bride.) what to do after 6 hours of
partying at The Ruins? an
afterparty in a hotel penthouse suite, of course!
it wasn't as glamorous as
it sounds because "suite" and "penthouse" are open
to interpretation, but it
was great catching up with josh and meeting
ellen and her interesting friends.
