I’ve wished for it before

And now I feel like it’s true.

It’s been a busy ass week. I’ve been annoy-vated (motivated towards change through being annoyed by certain things that I’ll just call rotund curveballs…)

Thank you for listening to me scream like a banshee over this. Thank you for holding my hand and stroking my hair.

Thank you for listening. Wanting to know. And making me laugh. Laughing with me at the things that seem ridiculous in retrospect.

For today, a quote from Juno (my all-time favourite movie, mostly because, as Will says, makes him squeam at over how just very Cath it is.

As said by her dad:

In my opinion, the best thing you can do is find a person who loves you for exactly what you are. Good mood, bad mood, ugly, pretty, handsome, what have you, the right person will still think the sun shines out your ass. That’s the kind of person that’s worth sticking with.

Happy Friday, everyone.

tapes, angels and unavailability.

I am currently unavailable for comment. No, it’s not what you think it is.

Currently swirling. Work is busy, my head is full, my heart in my throat on certain fronts but so full of love for those people who know who they are (and peeps, you know full well who you are).

In the meantime, I am swirling busy with much and such. All these tapes in my head swirl around. I am lucky I have someone who knows how to press that elusive pause button.

There’s a sticker on our wall that says Protected By Angels. My mother and father brought it back from the UK on their last trip. Every day I look at that and think to myself that we are blessed. And then I look over at Cam, still asleep, and am awed and full of love. Then she wakes up says “no mommy, wear the flower dress. you look pwetty. I love you”.

Every day I walk on, soldier on and live on, because she exists.

Nothing else in the Universe matters.

Quote for today

Thanks to Kish for the Marvin inspiration (you know how much I believe Hitch-hikers is essential reading for any human being…)

Anyway, here’s a quote, from Zaphod Beeblebrox himself thats makes me smile, giggle and can myself. The inner-outer narcissist loves it:

If there’s anything more important than my ego around, I want it caught and shot now.”


random quote for larcy

random quote for larcy from MSCL..following on from the sickbag I sent her this morning (sorry folks, left you out of that one, just this time…) 

I know you’re reading chick. hehe4. 

“People always say how you should be yourself, like yourself is this definite thing. Like a toaster, or something. Like you can know what it is, even. But every so often, I’ll have, like, a moment, when just being myself in my life, right where I am, is, like, enough.”

Excuse me, I have to go and oh, I don’t know, make fritters probably. =) 

Disclaimer: wahaha. note, this is a private joke. please don’t assume anything from it. should you feel the need to, please fuck off and stop reading me, disclaimers included.

Ani DiFranco

And in other news, I am consumed with glee over Ani DiFranco.

This one got me for today:

“Life is a B Movie: it’s stupid and it’s strange, it’s a directionless story, the dialogue is lame, but in the ‘he said she said’ sometimes there’s some poetry, if you turn your back long enough and let it happen naturally.”

But then it got better when I read:

“It seems that different people have an idea of what I am, and what I should be. And then there’s me.”

That, my friends, is all for today.

Oh, and if you don’t know who she is, please, just JFGI.

(oh, and yes, that was an intentional Franc/k/ism).


a note from a friend today

it lifted me on a day when i needed to hear something nice.

coming out of the mouth of someone i admire and hold very highly in esteem, it meant a lot to this girl behind her monitor.

i thought i’d share it.

you’re the most beautiful wonderful person i know, maybe being where you are is why you are the person you are

thank you dear.
