Steph:  Ya know how you told me about random guy who showed up at your party? I think I met him last week.

John:  You did? Where’d you see him?

Steph:  Well, he was. Well, I don’t know if it was him. But it was a random guy. It could’ve been your random guy. I’m not really sure. But, he was walking down the street and he was carrying a case of CDs.

John:  Oh. Whoa. When I saw him, he was carrying this case of beer.

Steph:  He. It’s random guy. It’s the case of the random guy, with a case.

John:  Whoa. So did you talk to him?

Steph:  Actually, just briefly. He, uh, gave me a whole bunch of CDs. He gave me his case of CDs.

John:  So, why did he give you the CDs? Did he like you?

Steph:  He just gave it to me so that I could listen to them. He said that he had made them and that he had listened to them and he was through with them.

John:  So, you’re not supposed to return them then. They’re yours to keep.

Steph:  Yeah. No. He’s really random. I don’t even know what his name was.

John:  What kind of music was it?

Steph:  Well, there was country music, R and B and then there was this CD called Bleep Squeak girls with all these, ya know, high-pitched girls singing – Ladytron, Stereolab, Bjork.

John:  Sounds like award-winning stuff.

Steph:  It was good. It was really good!

Do you have a hobby that takes up a large part of your free time? I play music in a band. I don’t do it all the time. I like it, but it doesn’t take up all of my time. The guitarist in my band, Chris, is a music freak. He writes music like crazy. One time, he decided to write 10 songs a day for 50 days straight. Now that’s a freak! What do you do that’s kind of freaky?
