It will be funny how all Cole’s friends will be on stage and there won’t be any left to be in the audience.

Also, apparently, I am writing an original poem. In the next 24 hours. DON’T MISS IT.

Okay! It is written. The rumors are officially true! I will make my grand return to Housing Works drunk enough to get on stage and read Go The Fuck To Sleep: 4Chan Edition. Six stanzas, six fucks, and more porn sites, memes, and fetishes than I care to admit I’m aware of. UNTIL NOW!
