Vincent. PrinceDisarming was his nic. He had failing health. I haven’t heard from him for a decade.
AtTheDropOfAHat? He was as weird as Nico but less irritating. He also didn’t know how to compose a sentence that didn’t inculde the words “fuck” and/or “cunt”. Dave was a Jewish guy living in Connecticut. We had each other as friends on FB but after not interacting for several years, I deleted him. No animus, we had each just moved on.
I don’t remember him, although many of us drank back then. I never really drank heavily but I could easily drink two bottles of wine in one sitting back then, and did occasionally. Now a bottle of wine lasts me a year.
I sometimes think of the kids on the Zone. I was already in my 30s back then but many were much younger. Dan turned out well. So many others didn’t. I ran into Ublic perhaps 15 years ago and he had made some bad choices and was becoming a loser. Adam is, well, Adam. Dawn died, no fault of her own, of course. Bek got married and has some kids but it doesn’t sound like she’s leading a healthy lifestyle from what she said a few years ago when she came by here. Her choice, of course. Melissa became bitter and left Chappy. Chappy himself seemed like he was just waffling around trying and failing to find some reason to be alive. He kept hanging around that fat bisexual guy of the same first name.
A generally useless bunch, not that we older ones are much better.
EDIT: I see you typing, Michele, but I need to sleep. I will read it when I wake up. Unless I forget in which case I won’t. Good night.
I admit a drank a little too but there’s a difference between having a social drink and getting drunk. Drunkenness is an open invitation to be aggressive and everyone in the path of that drunk are willing participants in their party. I hate that.
I remember Dawn. She was into the French guy, Benjamin. She was one of the few girls I talked to. She was sweet. Very kind person.
I have no idea who Chappy and Melissa were.
They are history and civics questions. We will see how good he really is if he doesn’t have time to call on Google for the answer, which is where I think he gets his answers. Yes, truthfully I think people give him too much credit for his intellect. I think anyone can look smart with Google at their fingertips.
I agree with this and Reg seems to enjoy his life very much. Everything he says brings joy to others because of his ability to relate. The question is, can he actually relate under pressure. I have my doubts but I think it would be a very telling experiment.
