Today I met a new friend, Lauren. She's quiet. All she does is sit around and do nothing. I tried talking to her, but she won't say anything to me. Sometimes I think she doesn't know I'm around. But I know she knows I'm there, because I can catch her looking at me out of the corner of her eye. The way she looks reminds me of Samantha: long blond hair that hangs in her face, a baby face. I wonder if they're related...if we're related.

Today I met a new friend, Rufus. He's crazy, crazier than I am. His eyes are bloodshot and his hair is all over the place. He bounces off the ceiling, literally. I had to clean up a broken lamp because of him. I don't like him very much. He talks too much and half the time I don't understand what he's saying. I wish he would go away.

Today I met a new friend, Fiona. She's pretty. She doesn't wear a lot of clothes and she flaunts her exposed midriff in my face. I swallow a lot when she's around. Her large lips are a bright crimson and her eyes are crystal blue. I like it when she's around, she makes me feel good about myself. She's like my real-life Christina Applegate. Except, she's not real.

Today I met a new friend, Aaron. He's confident and bold. He walks right up to Elizabeth and starts hitting on her. Elizabeth doesn't take any notice to it though, she just ignores him like he's not even there. I don't know how she can just blow him off like that, he's so big and has this deep voice like an earthquake.

Today I met a new friend, Pear. She's named after a fruit and she dresses like one too. She wears all green, a flowing dress all the way to the floor. Her long red hair is in braids going down her back and she doesn't wear shoes. She likes to sit outside and look at the clouds. She's nice to me, she lets me talk about things I can't talk to my shrink about.

Today I met a new friend, Todd. He's an asshole, I hate him. He likes to push me around and I end up getting hurt. I hate it when he's around. There's this glint in his eye, this evil fucking glint that he gives me every time I fall to the floor. His hands are blood stained and when I look down at my wrist, I notice a cut there. He gave me the cut.

Today I met a new friend, Jennifer. She reads a lot. Sometimes, I don't even see her because she's wedged herself into a corner of my room, reading a book. When I ask her what she's reading, she just tells me to shut up and leave her alone. When she's not reading, she likes to tell me what she's learned from the books. I learned about quantum physics the other day.

Today I met a new friend, Frank. He's a six foot tall bunny rabbit. He told me there are twenty-eight days, six hours, forty-two minutes, and twelve seconds left before the world ends. Frank is going to save me.
