Hi! Go...

Not reposting, because there are like 600 people who would want a reply and, um, well, no.

here you go...
1) Because you took the time to show that care and pity aren't necessarily the same thing.

2) There is this great big tree in a clearing, with a shelter refreshing, it's leaves almost polyphonic in the summer breeze. Its branches reach up into the Heavens, its roots plunge into the Earth. That is how it has always been, there is no reason why. Complete, silent, perfect. This is you.

3) That you are, pretty exclusively, home.

4) When you first introduced me to Jeff Buckley, and you just gushed about it. I gotta be honest, Jeff and I aren't close, but you so completely threw yourself into the emotion of his music and tragedy that I knew from then on forever that you would always understand what it was like for me. You did this without even trying.

5) I honestly can't think of anything I don't already know.

6) "Snarktastic"

7)I don't really care.

Re: here you go...
No matter what ever gets said to or about me for the rest of my life, these are without question the best things anyone has ever said about me - EVER.

You made me cry, you fucking bitch.

Me too!
Feb. 13th, 2008 09:58 pm (UTC)
you too!
1) I didn't. You friended me. The reason I reciprocated was that I had just realized that the people I had dedicated my friendship to were unable to back up the friendship they touted with action. I needed you, and you were there, and for that I am to this day, extremely fortunate.

I will say this here, but never again: What I lost in Dante I got in you, and I got the better in that bargain.

2) "Oh I'm as happy as I can be
I've fallen in love and so has she
I haven't told her, she hasn't told me
But we know it just the same
One day soon I hope they'll be
a one little, two little
Possibly three
I haven't told her, she hasn't told me
But we know it
Same" - Peter Sellers

3)Even at my worst, you are always right there beside me.

4) Sorry to say, the memory I will always have most obvious is seeing you in the library when we invited you to stay with us. Everywhere we've been, how far you've come, everything I celebrate and all my philosophy in life is affirmed when I remember the shiny face and empty eyes of a diamond discarded.

5)What do you most look forward to in the next year?

6) The one you're using right now.

7)I don't really care.

Re: you too!
Wow.. I really love you. You always remind me (not that you have to, or that you even try) that the best family is the one you pick out for yourself. I could not ask for a better life, and it's because you saw something in me that day in the library that no one else cared to see. For that, I will be eternally grateful.

I am most looking forward to "paying it forward", so to speak, in the upcoming year. With Andrew, with anyone and everyone I can. I look forward to it so much because I know that you will be right there with me, and that makes it so much more awesome than it would be otherwise.

For what it's worth, losing Olivia was (and still is at times) a trip into the deepest, darkest corners of hell-you know this better than anyone. The only reason I survive every miserable anniversary and don't go on random shooting sprees is because of you. I look in your face and I see that I can go on, and with grace and dignity because YOU do it, too. I honestly believe that we can survive anything, as long as we do it together.

No, but really. I love you so BIG!

This I've got to hear.

I'm curious what you'd say about me, but I'm not really game for number 7. It's not my style...

Curiousity tickled the faggot
1) The best part of this is the end. I friended you out of a fear that not warming to you might drive a wedge between Brad and I (it had happened before.) So I was social, but I thought you didn't like me, so I kept trying to figure out why, as I had not yet fully unleashed the bulk of my personality. I could never figure it out. I just didn't do well with how quiet you are, but then again I never have done well with quiet types, as they make me nervous. The ironic part about all this is that now I would be your friend regardless of what happens between Brad and I.

2) This song at the link because its sprite and happy and I always think of dance music when I think of you. Fall With Me by David Byrne and Paul Van Dyk

3) I love how I never see your best jokes coming. You're all quiet and somewhat preoccupied and then - BAM! Brain ninja. Best Ever.

4) Being with you at my first Pride was probably the memory of you I'll treasure most. Brad gets most of the sentiment, but events without you aren't as complete, and this is a sterling example.

5) What was the best day of your entire life?

6)Finding Emo

7)I don't really care.

1) I liked your veneer. You were loud and gregarious, and I knew right away that underneath it all was a guy probably a lot like me. You had wicked character, but you were still learning how to show it without feeling at the mercy of others. I wanted to be there to see and cheer for you coming into your own. It is the act of real strength to bury your hardships and not turn them into weapons of self preservation.

2) "And after all the obstacles
It's good to see you now with someone else
And it's such a miracle that you and me are still good friends
After all that we've been through
I know we're cool" - Gwen Stefani

3) I like that you made amends like a real man and not some punkass. You didn't have to deny that I was at one point really hurt, and that lack of dismissal showed that you really wanted my friendship back.

4) The first time we got really high together at your loft. I felt loved and accepted. It was among the best times of my life.

5)What scares you the most about being a dad?

6) Oh, no doubt, the Calvin & Hobbes ::snort::

7)I don't really care.
