Here's an idea, fuck denny's - make some serious passionate love to Shari's and laugh at all the bullshit talk about "the leader of the group" because we've never fucking had one nor are we going to. The person who organizes the most 'events' doesnt make a leader - you want 'events' plans some your damn self. Be assertive fer crap sake.
Denny's - Ha! What's this ? Lifeboat part II ?
wanders off mumblings about shoving birthday candles in various places which would make people say " I'm so embarrassed!"
