the hits keep on coming. good friend and first rate gal kate left tonight for her new home in new york.

[waiting around for a roomie to show in her last hour]
k: maybe she's not here because she doesn't like goodbyes.
m: yeah, really.
[... 15 seconds of silence ...]
m: hey wait, who is it that actually likes goodbyes?
k: oh yeah huh!
m: that'd be weird.

i, needless to say, am anything but that person.
