You think, as you walk away from Le Cirque des Rêves and into the creeping dawn, that you felt more awake within the confines of the circus.

You are no longer quite certain which side of the fence is the dream.

Alright so obviously if you want to know NOTHING, don’t read this - but if you want to get excited for the oh-so-imminent latest Cabal adventure, well, let me whet your whistle.

  • Steve: You seeing anybody these days?
  • Me: Nah. One recent crush ---
  • Steve: (overlapping) Let me guess ---
  • Me: (interrupting) Not a blonde.
  • Steve: ...so she's tall-ish, brunette, probably a little sassy, and she likes books.
  • Me: And she currently has a boyfriend.
  • Steve: Oh, so, exactly your type, then.

For reasons I do not understand, there was some uncertainty about my ownership of an actual giant monster lizard suit, despite my track record of high-fidelity blogging. I hope this clarifies the issue.

Such an awesome picture of Leo, it’s everything summer should be.

Listen, all you people who are giving Leo shit.  
Let’s get one thing straight: this is all any of us actually want to be.  

LOOK AT HOW HAPPY HE IS.  He has a water gun.  It is summer.  There may or may not (but let’s be honest) be alcohol or happy-drugs involved.  And you know what?  THAT’S ALL ANY OF US WANT IN THIS WORLD.

Happy summer, people.  Embrace your inner Leo-with-water-gun.  

I brought my best haunted, thousand-yard stare to the last FSG Originals party.  Felt fitting, it was for the Catherine Lacey book.
