FRAY-FRAY-DAY-DAY-CRAY-CRAY-no. I think I’m watching too much Seinfeld. Last night I dreamed (wait, dreamt? is that right? hold on let me look it up. okay it’s right, but it’s weird. dreamt.) about the crew, as if they were my crew. And I wanted them to be my crew!

Easiest and definitely the most glamorous thing you’ll ever do in life, ever. Don’t quote me on that.
