I went to a housewarming party hosted by Kelly Brazil, a friend from high school. He had just purchased a very nice flat in San Francisco, which he even painted a few walls in Ralph Lauren designer colors and furnished very tastefully. I got to meet some of his friends, and he told us many interesting stories about his religious upbringing.
It was great to catch up with him—so great that I hung out with everyone until 1:00 A.M. From there, I drove up to Napa Valley for the Napa Valley Marathon, sleeping in the car for three hours. The marathon went ok; perhaps you could say the party had energized me.
