Hi All – A quiet weekend for Chris – so I don’t have a great deal to report today. Last night Roger Shepherd came to visit him & we played more poker. Roger played crap all night but won the entire pot on the last hand with three aces. Accusations of cheating ensued and Chris slipped a derringer out from behind his arm brace, simultaneously accusing Roger of swindling him out of past royalties and ruining his career. Tensions heightened when Roger pointed out that beyond a few weirdos & bread-lovers no one really took Chris’ music seriously, and he hadn’t sold a great deal of records anyway, particularly not compared to Neil Finn, and I noticed Roger’s hand inch towards the bread knife, left on the poker table from cutting Chris’ birthday cake. As a hapless innocent bystander I took it upon myself to protect Chris & threw myself, selflessly, on the blade – luckily Roger was diverted by the cup of dandelion tea that was offered by Liesha and the knife glanced off the Mountain Goats CD I had in my pocket, and embedded itself quivering into his three aces. Being deeply superstitious types we all agreed that a sign had been revealed to us and all have sworn off dandelion tea as it obviously distorts objectives – and everyone pledged to be nicer to goats.
