1. GAY PEOPLE!
Every once in a while, I am reminded of just how amazing the gay community is. For example: this.
This...made my life. I love that song anyway, because Lily Allen rocks, but...this video makes me really, really happy.
Also Dan Savage is amazing. See: this. http://www.youtube.com/
I'm debating submitting something. On the one hand, there's not a lot I wouldn't give to be able to have a conversation with my 17-year-old self during my whole denial/self-hate/panic phase of figuring out that I am as gay as a gay thing that gays. On the other...I hate, hate, hate public speaking. Hate it. The more personal things get, the more I do my level best to hide under a bush, as many of you know. I can do dance concerts, sure, and music concerts are fine, but I don't have to talk during those.
My medium of choice for many things, if not most, is the written word. Maybe I'll write something out and...do something with it. I don't know. Like I said, I'm wavering. And sure, I could write a speech; whether or not I could actually read it aloud is another though...I might be able to do something with it if I collaborate. I don't have time to do it anytime soon in any case though.
Whether or not I do, I'm stalking this youtube channel...
2. SWEDISH MEATBALLS!
I made them last night for my housemates. They were nom-licious, even though it was my first time ever making the recipe and I had to substitute broth for the consomme because the store was out. I was terrified because the meat looked a little dodgy, but NOM NOM NOM and no one got food poisoning, so huzzah!
3. DEAR FRIENDS!
A very close friend of mine, the guy who was the first real friend I made at college (about four other people became friends at about the same time, but he squeaks in just before they did because we met playing Zombies vs Humans before we went to game night and joined up with the rest of the Jewfalcons), posted this quote on my Facebook wall at the beginning of the summer, when we were missing one another a hell of a lot and the sting hadn't faded yet.
"True friendship isn't being inseparable. It's being separated, and nothing changes."
I'd like to add to that a quote from Due South.
"A friend is someone who won't stop until he finds you and brings you home."
I'm on my way, guys. I'll get there. <3
Apparently I'm sparkly and glowy and shit, or something. I keep finding myself with a stupid grin on my face that I can't seem to stifle. I'm giving myself diabetes. I would be horrified, but I'm too happy to care!
Sorry if I'm talking any of your ears off, btw; I can't seem to stop myself. Luckily you guys don't seem to give the impression of minding, and even when I am asking silly questions about how to talk to girls you are noble enough to not laugh in my face. XD
It is my favorite season right now, guys! I LOVE FALL. The leaves are pretty! There are fresh apples and squash and corn! OM NOM NOM!
6. ADAM LAMBERT!
The man's voice looks like clear forest green shot through with black glitter. I can't stop listening to him. HELP. EITHER BY STOPPING ME OR SENDING ME
7. THE NUMBER SEVEN!
Seven, four, and eleven have always been my favorite numbers. Also forty-two. But mostly four, seven, and eleven.
Okay, I'm scraping the bottom of the barrel, so...what is making you guys happy lately? Feel free to ask me questions about any of the above!
