The holidays were spent with David's parents running all over the entire town. Am positively tramped. Need rest and quiet and complete solitude. Also had visits from two old friends from up North. Both newly in love. Not with each other. Glowing eyes and happy sighs. Decidedly have found a beach to be devoted to. It's quiet and clean. Actual families instead of titty girls. Have seen so much flippin skin damage over the last five days on these Califia worshipers, it's troublesome. Have gotten all tangled up in A Series of Unfortunate Events. It started as an innocent curiousity but now it looks as if, between this and Coraline, I am hooked on kids' books. Am tired and rambling. More later.
