Jeff Is Dead

I'd like to write more--possibly something prolific or whatever--but I've been drinking all evening and sensible things like that just won't come to me. His death has bothered me all day, which is a testament to him (even though I thought he was an asshole).

I was thinking all day that it seems that when people die suddenly, they are instantly venerated, no matter what they were like in life. Heard that Jeff actually died 2 weeks ago, but they only found him recently. Two weeks with nobody caring, nobody wondering, nobody calling. I hope that when I die, people won't be totally devastated, but they will at least wonder.

What would it take for you--yes, you, as a reader, not as the usual audience I'm always writing to in my head--to notice if I'd died?

I wanted to write about sudden, unforseen death (i.e. suicide) versus long, drawn-out death (like my grandfather's), but I'll save that for a time when I'm sober.

On an unrelated note, Matt's made me want to go out and do acid. Oh, to be numbed to reality and yet have no handover....

Death always seems like something that would happen to other people, those who we don't know very well. I think everyone of us had asked the very same question you did. People would notice, though, that sickening feeling of loss.

I always notice when you don't livejournal for a few days, and I miss not being able to read about what you've got going on, no matter what it's about.

I'd take your death harder than that of my own sister.
... it's true.
