Hey! Wouldn't it be neat if I could add "underwatercolor 2 years ago" to my friends list? This would, obviously, show my entries from two years ago today on my friends page. I think it'd be a great way to reflect on changes, remember things, and learn more about new people. And, and, it's like version control, you can easily compare Jesse v0.3beta with version QD.5!

It's the best idea ever. Admit it. :)

"And want to have sex, but it's impossible these days, your mother is taking a nap in the room right next to yours. But you kiss and nibble and stop right before you both go a little crazy. And you eat food instead. And go to a party. And go to sleep together. And wake up together. And finally feel your skins touching again. And eat. And get caught in the rain. And switch shoes so that you're wearing his size elevens and he wears your flip flops because the rain makes them so slippery you can't walk. And it's so funny you both laugh all the way home, stopping only to kiss underneath some balcony on some street. And thank whoever made all this possible, because Mr. Hill certainly didn't, and a college education didn't, and following some rule you made up in your head didn't. You know who did, and you thank him. And look forward to it all." ~digglesyo, with photos

"Unconcerned, he squatted like a languid bullfrog, his gaze listless, his clothes unkempt. There was an almost visible haze of filth around him, and a noticeable gulf between his chair and the chairs of his female neighbours."

Hmm.. if your friends list is big enough, 50 new entries can be added in the time it takes to read 50 entries. And then you can't read your friends page. Yay breaking points.

"One of the themes of the movie was how beautiful suffering was. How raw and powerful an act it is. I don't really know how to explain it, and certainly I think most of us can't really relate to it...but in the context of this movie, it made sense. Suffering. Pain. Strength. Determination. Courage."

"In all decisions, I advocate looking at the pros and cons. Look at what you're pushing for. Now, look at the sacrifices you'll be making, the work you'll have to put into getting what you want. Is it still worth it? ..."

I love this, of course:
"Let go. I think that is the single most difficult thing for me to do in this world, let go. ... The reality is, I can't. I feel like I'm supposed to own that right now. I think I'm supposed to look at it and say, "I can't make it alright forever, no matter how hard I try." In many ways right now, I'm embracing the chaos. The mutability. I feel like, for once, I'm in a strange space mentally where I have realized it can't be mastered and it doesn't matter whether it is okay or not...that is the way it is. That's life."

If you're all dorks (check!), and you're trying to explain the above to someone (read: control freakus), then you can also look at it as letting go of the things you can't control so you have more time and energy and happiness to find the things you can. Tasty benefit on a stick, you know you want it... :)

"As an experiment, I mentally catalogued the reactions I have to these friends as opposed to the reactions I have to my wife under similar circumstances. Then I tried to differentiate between the two types of reactions...and couldn't. There was a difference of degree, yes -- my wife and I have been together almost fourteen wonderful years -- but not a difference of kind. I cared for them all, I liked them all, and each of them makes my heart race when I see her."

I heartily approve. (ow!)

This poem and I have been together since high school (from a paper inventing parallels between Escher and Cummings). :)

a more colorful shadow of a previous version,
*hugs* :)

Woot. :) Some things just stick in your head forever. It's great. :)

that is a really good idea! hmm! maybe i'll do that! you too. heh.

Thanks! :) I think I'd use it.

Of course, it's just way too much work right now to browse old entries. That's a whole 'nother post, though. :)

*laughs* That occurred to me, too. :)
