see i’m in love with everyone
January 11, 2009
Thank you for the lovely birthday messages. I had the loveliest birthday, not a word of a lie. Yes indeed, it was a birthday, and it was the loveliest. Yeah so sometimes I can be such a sap. For example, when I’m watching Ghost Whisperer and I well up because Jennifer Love Hewitt is crying, when I’m watching Ghost Whisperer and I cry because a soldier regains his memory and realises he’s a hero and not a coward, when I’m watching Ghost Whisperer and I sob while a reformed drug addict is reunited with the ghost of her abandoned son who died as a result of multiple bee stings (all blog posts need a solid theme yeah?), and when sappy, sentimental quotes on silly internet sites take my breath away just for a split second. If I were to describe my super-sappiness as a fire (stay with me here…) then you could say that Tumblr is the…coal…log…firelighter…ah yes fuel…Tumblr is adding fuel to my sappy fire by introducing me to some lovely words to kick off my new year and my new age. Some of them aren’t sappy and silly and some of them you may like too.
“May your coming year be filled with magic and dreams and good madness. I hope you read some fine books and kiss someone who thinks you’re wonderful, and don’t forget to make some art — write or draw or build or sing or live as only you can. And I hope, somewhere in the next year, you surprise yourself.”
“Hello babies. Welcome to earth. It’s hot in the summer and cold in the winter. It’s round wet and crowded. Outside, babies, you’ve got about 100 years and there’s only one rule that I know of, babies. God damn, you’ve got to be kind.”
-Kurt Vonnegut, Jr.
And the very specialist bestest one…
Now where did I put that inner cynic of mine…
