Dear Charlie:

So, after not going to bed until 4AM and not getting to sleep until God knows when and further waking up before 11AM this morning, I texted Pesh, "Why am I awake??"

I now know why.

After dragging into clothes and taking a spin around the 'net, I decided to head for Grand Fortuna -- my favorite Chinese buffet -- for some lunch. I haven't eaten much in the last two days (long story), so I thought I might actually be able to pack away a whole plate. Not so much, but it was good to get out, and I like the restaurant as much for the servers who know me as for the food.

So, I'm nibbling at the too-many remains of my plate and reading a little Stephen King -- I'm actually working on the final edit for the e-book coming out in May at home, but hey -- and I hear a quiet, inquisitive "Molly?"

I look up and there's Scott. Some of you won't remember my awesome musician friend because it's been a long time since I saw him last. Remember when Dave broke my coffee table? Yeah, it's been almost that long since I saw Scott.

At any rate, he and his wife were there, and I was SO thrilled to see them. We had a good catch-up and exchanged current numbers, which is how we'd fallen out of touch in the first place after Scott started playing the casinos over the state line and didn't have as many local gigs. I don't hit the casinos as often as I like (more like once in the last five years), so I just lost touch.

But it doesn't matter now. It's awesome to be back in touch with such good friends. Scott's been there for me in some hard times, and I like to think I was at least amusing company during some of his.

I'm pretty sure that's why I was up so early. I am no longer complaining.
