Right, so I had actual complaints that I just didn’t get around to this lost Thursday! Which actually made me feel fabulous, so thanks. I have so much to be thankful this week, so much to absolutely love, so here goes:
<3 Drawing Parties with the most amazing people in London. I love eating popcorn, sharing colored pencils, sketching people out as fuzzy animals and mermaids.
<3 When beautiful movie stars take me out to dinner and there is champagne, even when I don’t drink it because I am trying to be healthy and good. But I love girly chit chat, I love laughing so hard that my sides hurt as very loud guitar music is played, I love group flirting with under-age waitstaff, I love walking through the streets of East London at night when it shimmers.
<3 I love the nanny mafia and how you can trust and count on the people closest to you to always take care of you and have your back, even when there is some bad shit going on. I love that I can call people up at a moment’s notice and they will drop whatever they are doing to help me out. And I love that I would do the same for them as well.
<3 I love my friends and how generous and amazing they are. How we don’t argue or fight, we just get lost and wander and smile and don’t even care about anything but being with each other…because we have fucking AMAZING adventures.
<3 I love the Tube. Sorry, I totally do. I love sitting on it for long periods of time, people watching, smiling, listening to my ipod.
<3 The Rentals. What a great band. What a great soundtrack to my very happy week.
<3 4am, the rain, a strange place: magic. I don’t want anything else, I don’t need anymore.
<3 Love without sex makes me feel warm like nothing else. Friend Love is indescribable and I can’t fathom why things should have to change…they don’t.
<3 My first football game. My first actually finished beer. My first footie scarf. I cheered, I laughed, I drank beer out of a large plastic cup and had a great time.
<3 Mexican eggs. I still think Nigella is a slut, but I should thank her for reminding me that this is one of my favorite foods.
<3 This song! Fuck it makes me want to bounce around and kiss random people I love the Futureheads!
<3 My wifey! She gets a special shout out because she is so fucking cute. Go my little G!
<3 Short skirts and leather jackets and multi-colored cows and having a fucking great laugh.
<3 more letters, that show up every day and have the heart stamp of approval all over them.
<3 Kate Nash’s new song
<3 The book: Everything is Illuminated. Thanks Steve for giving it to me, I finally got around to reading it this weekend and I have to say, it may not have been the most appropriate book for my travels (as it made me really sad and a bit angry), but I read it all and it didn’t kill me
<3 I think you are a bit of all right !
<3 getting my stuff back and starting a pro-scotland revolution.
<3 the travel bug!
<3 getting the fuck out of my house and the smile lines it causes.
<3 ‘if you weren’t my friend, I’d give you one! You’re hot!’ This is just what you need to hear when you feel hot and sweaty and really really drunk and a bit sick.
<3 Gin in pint glasses. Which means I fell off the wagon, but I prefer to think of it as I JUMPED off the wagon. It was awesome. Nah, it was rad.
WHEN WE MEET i LISTEN TO your HEARTBEAT. WHEN WE SPEAK i FIND IT HARD TO CONCENTRATE. WHEN WE TOUCH i FIND IT HARD TO THINK STRAIGHT. WE’RE SINGING OUT OF TUNE, BUT i STILL WANT TO SING WITH you!
<3 also, I miss nick something terrible. I know he’s in china being super awesome, but I still wish I could speak to him everyday like normal. Life without having someone to share it all with is less fun. After all, if you can’t make a drunken phone call and describe your day, it’s like it didn’t happen.
<3 top secret missions! spy adventures!
