Some things never get old. Like riding with Jennifer Aniston in the back of William Shatner's Hummer and saying to Bill, "Warp 6, Captain."

Well, maybe you needed to be there. :roll:

The strangest part was when Jen asked him to sing "Mr. Tambourine Man." I was afraid that might set him off, but he delivered a complete rendition without irony, then asked if we had any more requests. Jen said, "No, thank you. That was very nice."

I would have thought she could spare a thought for Vince but no, it was all "Brad this" and "Brad that". Bill tried to share "That's Me Trying" and that just set her off even more. I don't know why you associate with these people.

It's that sad desire to live like common people -- to sleep with common people.

Funny, I haven't noticed Jen mentioning Brad much at all. Maybe that's because she knows Brad and I still hang out. (Now, he's funny. In fact, he's here at the coffee shop with me now, immersed in Mark Leyner's Et Tu, Babe, occasionally breaking out in that Tyler Durden laugh of his, affecting a general sense of unease among the other patrons.) But this thing with Bill... Well, that was mostly Jen's idea.

Bill rang me to discus something or another so we met outside the local 7-11 for a slushy. While we were exchanging pleasantries Jennifer walked past and started talk to us as if continuing on from a previous conversation. I was surprised as we had only exchanged a few words and to be honest there was a misunderstanding, after which we avoided each other.

So Bill starts "That's Me Trying", possibly to distract Jen, then he looks to me as if I was going to play the part of Ben Folds. I told him I was sorry, I was an artiste (I not sure why I pronounced the 'e') and didn't perform other people's works.

Jen continued, completely self absorbed, and I would have been sure she wasn't listening to a word from Bill until he got to the line "See, if we never had a problem, that's what life would be like" and she gave me a sidewards glance.

I'm not sure what led her to join this small party as it certainly wasn't me and I was unaware of any relationship between her and the Rocket Man. There was a rumour he was looking to do some work on Friends in the early days, this was pre-"Miss Congeniality", but I don't believe those negotiation got anywhere. I never thought to ask.

Yes, it's true. Jen and the Rocket Man are back together, although no one has called me the "Rocket Man" in quite some time. In fact... Uh... Oh, you mean Shatner.
