12:28 am - Happiness Meme, day 5
Happiness is....

watching a funny movie (The Great Race, to be exact) with friends, and then curling up on the floor and falling half-asleep while listening to them talk about roller coasters and Disneyland and skydiving and decapitation and movable feasts and Hemingway.


Just a quick note. It was a long day, I didn't get much done, although it was also kind of nicely low-key and it RAINED THANK GOD. But it was lonely and depressing and I really needed some company.

Especially after my parents called and told me that 2 guys whom I grew up with were in a car accident today. One died at the scene and the other is not expected to live. I'm not close to them, but one of my very good friends is, so I talked to her too, and really...there's nothing I can do. Even praying feels weird.

So it was the perfect evening. God blesses me more than I deserve.

The Great Race is a fun movie! Almost as good as "Those Magnificent Men In Their Flying Machines".

I'm glad friends were there when you needed them.

It's hard being far from home when things like this happen.

I find peer deaths take about a year to stop being The Thing I think about when I'm not thinking about anything else.

It's...just very weird. Peer deaths are not something I'm used to experiencing, though I was never very close to this family, myself. But talking to a good friend and hearing her voice pitched a consistent half-octave above normal because she's trying so hard not to cry is...heartbreaking.

I'm sorry about your friends/acquaintances.

Great icon. But an even greater truth.

Thank you--it's a Harry Potter icon, of course, but it is indeed a great truth.

Falling asleep to good conversation around you is one of the simple pleasures of life.

I miss you, mi amiga. Wish we could get together soon.

It is! I miss you too--I do hope you can come visit in not too long! That would be awesome.

God blesses you exactly as you deserve, and don't you forget it, dear heart. *fierce hug*
