The following photo was entirely spontaneous, but it made me think of IJ. Guess which one is which?

I didn't see the middle person corresponding to anyone, really, and the person on the right as either Hal or Orin.

I would say Hal in the middle since he's obviously a partier, the guy on the right isn't really paying attention to the other two, so he's more like Orin. :)

Not to get too far into this, but I picture Hal doing his partying alone and not being particularly like, dude-ish. He's not like, drinking from the beer bong - he's getting high alone, neurotically, and then attempting to hide it from everyone. He did drink (I think) at Eschaton, but he was also in that weird detached state, which seemed quiet and sort of eerie.

Mario is obvious. Guy in the middle is a complete cut-toenails-while-on-the-the phone kind of guy which would make him Orin. Then again, tallest guy looks the most like BU Football player Orin.

The question is: who is more likely to say "Something smells delicious!" And who could outrun the grief therapist?

I believe Hal was the one cutting his toenails on the phone, not Orin. Hal was talking to Orin.
