I'm absolutely huggable.

Aurora (aurocka)
You are my sister. I feel like I can call on you when I need someone smart and caring to talk to. I depend on you.
When I look at your artwork it makes my heart jump. I love the way you're able to express your emotions.
You have been the best bass player ever. Sometimes I feel like you're that solid person that grounds Bianca and I.

Ian (monkeysaurus)
Whenever I see you I want to hug you. Your nickname "huggy bear" is fitting. The Ian-Greyson sandwich is something every girl (and boys too) should experience. I will gladly hold your hair and pat your back.
When I talk to you I wish that I could take all the sadness away from your heart. I wish that you knew what a truly perfect and wonderful person you really are.

Mike (redliner)
I want to thank you for all the shows and advice that you've given Ira. I wish there were more laid back loving people in Fresno like you and Brad. Thanks for being my date to Club Fred a while back. It's nice to have someone watch out for me when I go out alone. That was really cool of you. We need to hang out more.

With love,

Here are five nice things about elaineous:

1. Elaine is the sneekiest person I know. Nobody suspects the girl with the long blond hair. Nobody. If you need to know a solution to a problem, she has the answer. She has a ton of life experience, some good some bad, but in the end knows how to think things through and do the right thing.

2. Elaine loves animals, and has a wonderful dog named Princess. She gives a mean ear scratch, and all of my cats love her, even though she has the scent of dog all over her. When my favorite, oldest cat, Puddles, was sick, Elaine was the first to call me to make sure I was doing OK.

3. Elaine has a fantastic sense of humor. She's the person you want to be with on a long road trip. She'll always make you laugh. She always has something good to say about even the most mundane things. I'm never bored having her in my life!

4. Elaine is someone I know I'll know all my life. There's a lot of comfort in having her as a friend. I can see us as old happy spinsters sharing a porch somewhere in the desert drinking a cold 40 ounce together. We've been friends for over 10 years, I hope we can be friends for 40 more.

5. Elaine has an amazing sense of style. She always looks good. Nobody could pull off the loud clashy 60's polyester prints like her and still look fabulous. She doesn't do anything to "be cool". she follows her heart, but in doing so is so damn cool.

Here is a picture me giving Elaine a hug. Please tell me we are hugable!!!

My love of my very special friend Betty [Apr. 16th, 2004|11:12 pm]

[music |My Little Corner of the World-Yo La Tengo]

   Here are 5 of the many things that not only I, but the rest of the world likes/loves about my pal   bettypgp .

1. I love Betty because of her openness and friendliness towards strangers and people that don't quite fit in.  Right when I first met her she invited me to chill with her friends and watch fun movies together anytime.  I was quite lonely at the time, being new at my college, and her smiling face was a solace to me.  She didn't care that I was a shy little freshman redhead, she showed genuine interest in my personality.

2. Betty is a creative genius.  I'm constantly inspired by her use of color and shape.  She has created several interior designs, as it is her major, but she also constructs awesome pieces of clothing. Just the other day she found a Snoop Dog T-shirt at the resale shop and made it into an awesome skirt with the phrase "Murder was the Case".  She uses her creative talents to help others as well.  My artist friend Jared had designed a teletubby like creature named Hitler Witler and she made the idea into a real plush toy, which he later was able to use in his art show.  She also hand painted flyers for parties that I planned, no charge, she also designed and painted shirts for our "hardcore" dodgeball team the X Fighting Findleys X, so they were the coolest looking team on the campus.

3. I love how Betty marches to the beat of her own drummer, just yesterday I saw her roller skating in a dog costume (see below) around campus because it just seemed like a fun thing to do.


4. Betty has a wonderful sense of humor, nary a moment goes by without her either laughing or saying something completely hysterical.  Whether it's discussing her "Czech Birthing Cheeks", or creating neurotic puppets out of daffodils she keeps us rolling.

5. I love her hair.  She uses those old fashioned rollers or ties in order to get perfect curls for the next day.  She's not afraid to change the color and everytime she does it turns out beautifully.  Right now it's a rich honey brown with traces of rouge.  When she was acting in my  film I loved playing with the color saturation levels in the editing room mainly due not only to her choice in costume, but her wonderful hair hue.   

That's just a few things, she also rocks out on keys in a band. Gotta support the grrrl musicians. there ya go. after all this writing I feel very positive. keep up the good hugs.

5 reallly nice things about the_dead_end

1.he lays in bed at night next to our 2 year old boy and they talk about going fishing and taking walks in the barn where we used to live. and he will do anything for our boy. he spent the weekend with him at children's hospital when 2yo broke his femur and i couldnt handle the hospital. i could go on for hours about how good a daddy he is. i could.

2. he is a math genius. he is also a musical genius. and really just a genius all round. smartypants, he is.

3. have you seen his eyes? they are to die for. dreamy delicious eyes.

4. he used to steal money from his craptastic job to take me out to dinner at the clairmont cafe or buy paints and brushes for me. we were extremely broke assed and it was the most romantic theft ive ever seen.

5. he loves me and is kind to me even though im a basket case.

hows that? ill die if im not huggable enough.
(also- some of you know this...but, i always type one handed and therefore use very poor grammar due to holding a baby in the other arm...so thanks for ignoring that stuff)
peace out yo.

Five sweet things about lj_waaambulance:

1. She loves to laugh, and appreciates the value of a good in-joke, but won't drive it into the ground.

2. She's honest and straightforward, always trying to bring things to the table when they trouble her not just to soothe her nervous heart but to make things better for all parties concerned. She's one of the few people I'm totally comfortable around. That's saying a LOT.

3. She's a really fucking good cartoonist. She teaches art to little kids, and knows why that's valuable.

4. She appreciates all dogs, from the puli to pugs and other smushy-faced monstredogs, and actually applied for a job making dog clothing.

5. She's one of those people who isn't a doormat, but is loyal to the right people for the right reasons. She isn't afraid of expressing her love for her friends, she gives the best hugs in the world, and I (who am prickly and don't trust that easily) would trust her with my life. She's not afraid to admit when she's wrong, but she's very often right.

[music |Coltrane: Afro-Blue (live, Seattle)]

I have read your instructions thoroughly. I am going to follow them to the letter, with one notable exception, which is that I am not.

Five nice things about toofareast:

1. When she smiles or laughs, which she does often and with which she is never stingy (even when things are sucking mightily and furiously, like the black hole of existential pain allegedly experienced by goths, about which I know nothing at all) her face kind of crinkles up, but not really, in this very adorable way, and I imagine she has been smiling like this her whole life even as a child, making everyone think (as I do) 'Oh god, that's such a damned good smile.'

2. Even though she posts too many quizzes in her journal (which I must admit is her prerogative) she has a journal, which exists solely because she left my fair (grey and wet, drizzly, green) city for a year to teach in Japan. We were all somewhat despondent when she made this decision to go, but then she went and got a journal. Now, I get to see her face (available in LJ user icon) and read the amusing mishmash of things she likes to think and post about. Plus get a tiny dose of culture, of which I am sorely lacking. So I suppose this nice thing is both THAT she had the gumption to leave home for a strange place just because she wanted to, AND that she unselfishly made a LiveJournal for those of us left behind. You should all read it, but it will not give you the same warmth and happiness as is given by her presence.

3. I am a sort of bastard. I don't mean to be, and I work on not being, but long years of bastard training are hard to overcome. It's like programming in the brain, instead of in the computer. I don't make many friends, because I don't like many people. I mean, I have a generalized detachment-compassion for all beings, but beyond that, well. The thing is, toofareast has been my friend since NINETEEN NINETY-SIX. Seeing as how I tend to excoriate people from my life on a fairly regular basis, like stinky bathroom garbage (even though, in fairness, they are not), the fact that she has remained by my side (lit & fig.) and understanding of my many, uh, manymany peccadilloes and behavioral/cognitive eccentricities, counts for a lot. And I still like her a lot, and everything. And when she was here, she would always invite me to do stuff, even though now she's gone none of our mutual friends hardly ever do that, because they don't have that same generosity + motivation trait complex that she does.

3a. I miss her, and wish she would come back. (This is short, and does not count.)

4. When something bad happened not long ago she did not lose her mind with the insanity and slide into depression, horribility, etc. etc. that is so characteristic of... me. Instead, she somehow struck a balance between factual acknowledgment of how bad it was, and factual acknowledgment of the inevitability of tragedy in our lives. Doubtless she must still feel bad (unless she has super powers, which sometimes I think she might), but there are clear indications that her life is moving steadily forward, indicating a true sense of self originating from within, rather than the sort of self-concept built on what other people think, so prone to toppling it is, like Dozer structures carelessly (but necessarily) gobbled down by Fraggles, like Gobo and Mokey and Red and Wembley and Boober. How can you not just love someone who is, well, capable of not falling to pieces.

5. She's so damned smart, but instead of being one of those smart people always having to barf smarts all over the world, she is content to enjoy each conversation, no matter how banal, and add her own take.

I don't know about hugging me, but I know for diddly-damn sure you'd hug HER, if you knew her. I bring you toofareast.
