The play turned out wonderfully, although I feel guilty for forgetting to say an important line during the second performance. But the entire cast were so exhausted that I have a feeling I can be forgiven.

Last night I finished reading Cecilia Galante's The Patron Saint of Butterflies. It is a very strange book. There was something that kept me at a distance from the entire story -- the characters, the setting, everything -- but at the same time, I was compelled the entire time I was reading it. It is just an extremely strange but fascinating novel.

And this morning I completed Huge by Sasha Paley.
