friend three

well, one of the big things about me is that i have had a giant crush on daniel handler for a bunch of years. it’s actually mostly died down lately, but a few years ago i had the opportunity to be part of an open mic at a reading with him. i just about died, but i am still alive.

one of the really good things that happened was that i got to listen to Friend Three, who i will call “adam balbo,” play music. i really liked it and it turned out he really liked my story, too. we became a momentary mini mutual admiration society.

a few months later, we were both at a kimya dawson show. he seemed pretty bummed about life, and i happened to have a bracelet (with a bunny on it i think?), so i gave it to him.

since then, he’s been doing a lot of really great music, including some with other bands and people i really like. but i’ve morphed into “cubbie the grown up who teaches and really basically never goes to shows any more” and so i haven’t really gotten as involved in his music as i think i should, for all the promising events of the beginning of our friendship. but i still really like that he’s out there making music and being himself, because that musician who i saw play and the person who i gave the bunny bracelet are one good guy.
