more laini love.

yesterday brianne and i hung out in old town alexandria. we went to bastille, buzz bakery, and the torpedo factory. we came back and relaxed a short while then met les, jen, and karyn (WITH A Y) at junction and then headed to harmony in georgetown for dinner. afterwards brianne and i went to the black cat to see georgie james. as per usual, i felt like a rock star, running into so many friends. i had to break the news to laini to a bunch of people. i kind of feel like a robot reciting what happened over and over again. she was liked or loved by everyone she met.

today brianne and i went to baltimore to see laini's parents again and have breakfast with them at captain james restaurant. i'd been there once so long ago with laini that i couldn't remember the name. i googled baltimore shaped like a ship restaurant and found it, along with an entire webpage about restaurants shaped like ships. after breakfast, where our waitress served us and then was so upset over the remembrance of the news that she could not get herself together enough to bring us the check. afterwards, we went back to the stamathis house again for more talking. at one point i ducked upstairs to use the bathroom and i just felt compelled to look at her room, so i wandered in there. the last time i had seen it was when nothing was unpacked and i'd stayed in the space outside her room with paul a few years ago. nuni was laying on her bed looking really contemplative. i went and scratched his head and then laini's mom came in and we stood there and talked about her hoarding of stuff. after a minute she left and i was standing there just thinking and i lost it and just started sobbing. i've been keeping it together as best i know how, but being there was really impossible not to lose it. i took a couple pictures of nuni laying on her bed and i'll post one when i am back in chicago.

did anyone have plans to see Bjork with Laini because her mom showed me that she had bought two tickets to this show?

We had to leave Baltimore by 2 to make sure that Brianne to Dulles by 4, so we snapped a couple photos, said goodbyes, and were off. Brianne is really awesome and I am really glad that Laini introduced us. So far I've driven a total of (Wed 4 hours, Thu 4 hours, Fri 1 hoursish, Sat 4 hours = 13 hours). I'm emotionally drained as well. This is really taking a lot out of me. The people all brought together by this tragedy are all quality though, so it makes it hurt less knowing that there are a lot of us grieving together.

We all really loved Laini. Here were posts by her friends, but some are locked to friends only: amy, shelly (locked), evan, jennifer (locked), karyn, pam, scott (locked), swifty.

Hi Leigh,

I just wanted to let you know that I'm the one who had plans to see Bjork with Laini - we were planning on her visiting me in Las Vegas in December for it. I've been reading your journal entries this week and if there's anything I can do for you or if you need to talk, let me know. I know how close you lala sisters were and I've been thinking of you. I wrote an entry about her too.

Love,
-- Lauren

hey - sorry for the late response to all your entries; I'm just now catching up on the internet. I am so sorry for your loss-- I'm not sure I ever met Laini, but I could tell just from the way you talked about her, here & in person, how close you were. Please know that you and all of Laini's friends and family are in my thoughts.

xx
catherine.
