As we tried to tie together blankets and pillows, Rob Lowe dropped by and we started discussing his book about Zelda Fitzgerald. Then the family from Raising Hope met us in a parking lot, where we all parked our gear in an SUV and went into a Baus Haus building and assigned (imaginary) Elinor Wylie poem “Enter New York” to a poetry student for recitation just as the lights came on, and some ugly guy was hitting on us until we told him seduction wasn’t complete without Edna St. Vincent Millay.

Some other stuff happened, too, but I can’t remember it all.
