Baaaaaaaack!

We had the most wonderful time at our wedding. It goes without saying that emotions ran high and we had the best day ever, despite anything we might have forgotten in all the chaos. It was such a strange thing to have so many of the people we appreciate and love in one place. There is so much to say about it, but I won’t. Thank you to everyone who made the trek, extra long or short-to-moderate to come out and help make it such … Continue reading

It’s so nice not to know you.

Surround yourself with only positive and/or realistic people.  It makes an enormous impact.  If there are consistently negative and selfish people, hold on to the good memories (if any) and let those people go.  It’s not worth it to drag along a constant anchor of loathing.  Just be around the good folks, help each other through the bad times and always make a mental note when you get to enjoy the good times.   And the indifferent times.  Those are good too.

There’s this weird feeling in my stomach today. 22 years ago this day, my good friend Ellie was born. She became one of the most sensible yet most adorably fun people I have ever been lucky enough to meet. I was always in awe of her positive outlook on everything. Even when we didn’t agree, which was rare, I always understood where she was coming from. She had about a billion friends because she was such an easy person to get to know and love. … Continue reading

You’re the devil in me

We’re going to see District 9 tonight, which I know nothing about, except that there’s something about aliens (or Mary) involved in it. I’ll do it because Miklos’s sister is a peach and we have movie passes because of her. Went for sushi with Heather today for the first time in a while. It was refreshing, although we didn’t get to go to Sushi Jade because it’s now something of a condemned building instead of a restaurant. Which I kind of expected, after the last … Continue reading

I was pretty sure I couldn’t do it, but it only took me from 2pm until now to read the three disgustingly long chapters I needed to, with just one break to eat a [horrible] packet of Thai noodles [that cook up like Mr Noodles which has sent my stomach into an effervescent spiral of hellishness] so that I didn’t starve. I should’ve just eaten dirt off the kitchen floor. Plenty for all! This morning, I enjoyed breakfast with Garth. That was a nice switch! … Continue reading

Minutiae

A long time ago, when I was much angrier or at least cared more, some idiot commented on my blog in all his pretentiousness and [in all likelihood only] criticized me for writing about the ‘minutiae of my life’ [because it made him feel all warm and special inside to say a word containing more than three vowels in it]. He made his statement that no one cared but me. And you know, that’s true. It is. No one does care about this stuff, except … Continue reading

Thank you everyone for your incredible support through phone calls, MSN messages, and Facebook. Whether I’ve had the strength to reply directly or not, I cannot tell you how much I appreciate it. Without you guys, I don’t think I could have made it through the day. It’s not very often I have to be human, thankfully, and I’m trying to cope the best I can. You guys are great.
