I am nothing special
I completely disagree with that. You're all kinds of special, at least to me.
I love trashy romance novels too, omg. *has secret stash*
And you, Miss Molly, are one of the people I think about when I wonder how I'll get to the other end of a day. You're an inspiration.
I made something beautiful and blue the other day, totally for someone else, but when it was finished, I realized it was for you. I can't wait to send it to you.
Your address is still thr same, yes?
omg yis! omg whee! Your things are always so incredibly beautiful... I'm all giggly just thinking about it..
3) My favorite book that I never say is my favorite book is Morning Glory by Lavyrle Spencer. I love it. I think it's beautiful. A part of me understands that it's complete garbage (the part that doesn't allow me to admit it's my favorite book and insists on saying Ernest Hemingway's The Sun Also Rises, which I've loved since I first read but it's got nothing on the hotel scene when Will goes on leave in Morning Glory.)
5) I have a lot more respect for someone whose faith (however they define it) is quiet and true than I do for people who loudly decree or decry. You can tell they go to it with their eyes (and hearts) wide open rather than blindly or blindly stumbling in the dark. If it gets you through, then it's a beautiful thing.
9) I understand what you are saying here, but you are most definitely a very special woman. I never fail to learn something from you or stop to think about something you've said.
3) omg, my favorite one that I never talk about is The Gamble</a> also by Mz. Spencer. Seperate Beds is also good but... oh man, we're such saps.
9) You make me cry tonight? I cutchoo. :) But I think more than anyone on my list *you* would get the "I don't understand why you think the universe owes you an existence" issue. What with your job stuff. That being said.. thank you. The feeling is entirely mutual.
By the by.. how's your hoo-hoo?
Hi. I can close HTML tags. I promise.
3) I was distraught when she quit writing
9) Kids at that age always seem to think the world owes them. They were born afterall, weren't they? That, apparently, is their contribution. It's tiring. I can see if from the otherside, too, though, because I was the same way at 18. Actually at 20. I was completely insufferable and held some beliefs about the world of which I'm 100% ashamed of now. I don't know that I'm a better person at 32, but I know I'm infinitely more likeable.
Healing, if the doctor is to be believed, which I don't generally think she is but in this I'll allow her her opinion. Still a bit sore and she extended my antibiotics out to 10 days instead of 7, but I can walk straight at the moment, so I guess I'll say things are good for now :D
It's funny, at 18 (and 20.. and 23.. and..) I didn't so much think that the world owed me, but I did think I was invicible and that things would always work out for the best. That? Didn't so much happen. Though, looking back, I got into this industry at just the right time because I wasn't at school finishing my degree. Ah well. I suppose we make the best of our own worlds. You're right though, I'm a more likeable person at 31 than I ever was at 20. I was so scared then. Even at 25 and 28 I was busy doing things without really thinking about who might be hurt and whether they were true to the kind of person I wanted to be. Go us.
And walking straight with decreased soreness is cause for smiles, I'm glad to hear it. Also, thanks to you I now want to do a short version but I'm scared it would end up just another long version.
A short version was a true task, and I actually wrote it after I did the long. I had to force myself not to elaborate--even started to on the corny movie thing and stopped myself. But!! There's so much I want to say!! seems to be my motto.

Great Big Sea
Don't know if you saw this, but:

Muchos gracias! I actually got seats through a GBS website pre-sale earlier this week so I'm set. Because I wouldn't miss the b'ys when they're in town.
Um... introduce yourself? Say hi?
Hi Mara. :) They're great on the radio but there's nothing like seeing them live, eh? I miss Darrel, but I think they're a happier band than they were a few years ago. I missed the Wolf Trap show (I'd seen them there a few years ago with Eddie From Ohio and some other band whose name escapes me) because I was campin in Pennsylvania at the time so I'm tickled to get to see them this year.
And it's nice to have others identify with my introversion. I think I got lucky with my friends list and most of them understand it if I go AWOL for a couple of days. Sadly my boss and my family? Not so understanding. :)
For you? I use my Alan icon.
And can I just say how ODD it is to be seeing them in an assigned seating venue? I'm not going to know what to do with myself unless I have to stand in line to get in. :)
knowing you're part of the world makes me happy.
I don't know where this '10' things came from, but reading it has been like a present this morning. I was just too distraught and wiped out last night to pay attention to anything.
*loves on you and hopes you had a good evening with our Cait*
I like the 10 things too. As someone who lived with you for what, 6 years? I think I actually knew most of this. Although you didn't mention your unholy addiction to The Real World. (Sorry if I outed you.)
Oh and as a favorite memory, just cause I wanted to. I loved that time when we made Thanksgiving for the bois. Just because we wanted to see if we could do it. I don't think I've ever seen such a damned mess in a kitchen. Ever.
3) One of my Favorite Books of All Time is the Trashy Love Novel (as I call them) is Dance While You Can by Susan Lewis. I can't even tell you why but I love it.
I love you Melly. So very much. And you are so very special and wonderful.
you are special and wonderful and I feel blessed to know you
I love trash books. I have a collection of horrible romance novels too, but just for added fun, I have crappy movie novelizations and Star Trek books as well. \o/
See, and I *knew* about your trashy novel addiction because I've seen your Untamed Hobbit icon. ;)
It's funny because it's true. And versatile! Just subsitute Highlander, Savage, Pirate, or Vampire, as desired. \o/
AM LISTENING TO YOU OMG!!!!!!!!!!!
me too - all the time-- even. :)
You are one of my favorite things :)
