- This person lost at trivia.
Honestly, you can just ignore Mark’s recap… MINE HAS PICTURES. So, technically, this is the official Literary Upstart recap. Pay attention.
There were lots of people there. Smart people. Funny people. Attractive people. Even people in heavy black-framed glasses! (Seriously, I like those glasses, gotta get me a pair.) The readers were good. They read stories about sex and killing and sandwiches and Italians and more sex. The verdict? Sexy!
There was also lots of beer there and I think I drank most of it. I was drunk this morning when I “woke up” but now I’m starting to be less drunk and more hungover, so STOP FUCKING TALKING TO ME. Sorry.
There was also trivia last night and, no foolin, I think we had our smartest trivia contestants ever. This might sound like a good thing, but it’s actually more fun when the contestants are stupid, because then I can berate them and feel better about myself by wielding unfair amounts of power over people who are trying… Boy, that’s a good feeling.
The judges, as usual, were in fine form, and speaking of power, I thought they were particularly nice to all the contestants, which must have been nice for all the contestants.
Let’s see, what else happened… Oh! I didn’t throw up and I didn’t see anyone else throw up, but I’m not sure if that means it was a good night or a bad night. But what the hell, it’s always great to be at a goddamn short fiction reading that feels more like a good house party then, well, a reading. IF I DO SAY SO MYSELF.
Now I’m going to go sleep in the bathroom. G’night!
