You are my new hero. Seriously. This story was a) awesome, and b) ... well, I think awesome pretty much covers it. But you know... things sound better if there's an a) AND b). Anyway... ;
So like I was saying: I love everything about this, and the humour! I'm a big fan of it. P Plus, you actually write humour really well, which is refreshing (not that there's a lot of people who don't (neccessarily), but whatever). I would point out all the examples of humour that was especially effective, except that a) then I would be re-posting the entire thing and b) people really hate it when I do that. As much fun as *I* have, it's not a particularly constructive review. (But see what I mean about a) and b) sounding much better than just saying one thing! P)
And, I give you kudos on writing a kind of long short story... And one that actually has a plot! Not only do my short stories barely go past one character (ever) but I have issues with plot, so give yourself a pat on the back for managing to weave together a whole bunch of characters and telling a story. Which doesn't *sound* like a compliment (in fact, say it with a sarcastic voice and it's an insult) but it really is. Honestly. ;
Anyway, where I'm trying to get with all this sounds-like-insulting complimenting and rambling, is that this rocks. I would even give you a high five, except or the whole "internet" thing.
So in short (maybe I should have done this originally): 1. Humour equals good. 2. Many characters equals good. 3. Giving the story a plot equals good.
AND the fact that the characters and the plot were awesome helped as well. I liked it all. )

hey, this was a fun read. the narrator has a great sense of humor and the way the story was written was pretty much flawless in tone and pacing. also, it was a pretty unique idea.

Kya! I love Nathan, he has this bluntness that kills me. I like that way it's played out, simple but meaningful at the sametime. Like, how he doesn't make a big deal out of the fact that he's gay. Cool beans. -

I really enjoyed the humor in this (it was... a good break from reading a couple of your other stories, which are somewhat dark). Actually, I read it out loud to my roommate and she appreciated it, as well. ) It DOES feel somewhat like a rough draft, though, I have to admit-could be more fleshed out, and the beginning few paragraphs don't quite seem to match the rest of the story to me. Nonetheless, the speaker's personality is great. Let's see... Since I'm lazy, I'm going to do one GINORMOUS review right here. Which is actually going to be relatively simple. I also read, "College Material," "This isn't about Rape and Murder," "This Won't Mean a Thing Come Tomorrow," "You're Too Wonderful to Die," and "Maybe I should Hate you for This." ...And they were ALL amazing. I don't really even know what else to say. Your characters all seem so real (with the possible exception of Andrea from "This isn't..." who seems more force of nature than person). I've never experienced any of these situations, myself (mm, well, maybe one), but... I don't know. I don't know. I'm too impressed to come up with anything coherent. And I think that's a good thing.

Read it, loved it, to put it simply. I loved the humour in this, the quirky thoughts that are so human, but never mentioned 'cause they make you seem mad, like making a triangle out of someone's freckles in Maths or whatever. I especially loved the line about being married in Massachusetts. Also the narrator's obsession with homosexuality illustrates well his own yeah, and I like the a purely technicasl level, there should be a space in the line "I workin a guitar shop"Yours, Empty Jigsaw

This is so fucking hilarious. And honest.
Also, congratulations. You're the only person on the internet who can write realistic (but funny) dialogue.
