|12:28 am - Happiness Meme, day 5|
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".
It's a great movie! *g* I must put the other one you mention on my Netflix queue. *does so*

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*
