Oh god I am in such a hilarious mood at the moment and I have no idea why because I have been christmas grocery shopping three times today (we forgot stuff) and usually I would be screaming at this point but today it was all incredibly staisfying because of the degenerating standard of trolleys and the fact that the lettuces are "iceberg" lettuces. hahahahahahaha!!!!!
i decided that in true christmas spirit i would rip off sharne and jess and say something incredibly flattering about all us LJ-ers, heaped with sickening amounts of seasonal festivity.
so starting the list. if i forget anyone i apologise sincerely. please forgive me because i am in a precious state of mind at the moment.
is generally the most fantastic person on the planet to hang out with. we agree on nearly everything despite not really having a lot of the same interests (house, teehee, hahahahahaaaa). plus i have known her for *counts on fingers* ...10 years. woot. we must have an anniversary get together and reminisce over cheap wine and cheese crackers. she is also just so well organised and is (seemingly) perpetually un-overwhelmed. nicola, you are brilliant.
alison is just so sweet and generous and lovely and self-effacing, which is very becoming. we understand each other very well and despite the fact that i have not known her for long, about 2 years since we actually started hanging out due to bio and then ext2, i love spending time with her and am going to miss her very much when she goes to austria. alison is the kind of person who would give you tea and sympathy with sincerity.
lil and i get along really well because we have so many of the same interests. we both obsess so easily and are disillusioned by the importance of things. i think i have said this so many times and there is absolutely no ulterior meaning in this, but 'back to you' by john mayer always reminds me of lil because we obviously both really like john mayer, but also because it is such a sweetly understated song.
todd has such pure, happy, blind optimism that by some process of diffusion (osmosis?) he somehow makes everyone else feel good.
though i havent spent a whole lot of time with jess, she seems like the kind of person who'll laugh at you, have fun with you and come through when you need her most. (lame, i know)
chloe is so lovely, funny and well-intentioned that i could, quite frankly, never be angry with her.
i share so many fond memories of art with phoebe. and to me, phoebe and the eternal sunshine of the spotless mind are synonomous. synonomous as in wonderfully companionable and sweetly yet profoundly bizarre.
iv known karmen now for what, two years? but in the last year we've spent so much time together through art and modern and house that i think i know her pretty well and she is the most fantastically, amusingly, narcisstically lovely person in the world.
pat is a moron.
just kidding. i like pat, he's a twisted bastard with a good sense of humour and a healthy appreciation for the bizarre-ness of life, making him fun to hang around.
i havent spent much time with sharne but she makes me laugh and she doesnt take herself seriously. whenever we speak we've always gotten along really well because she's a very natural, instinctive person.
georgie is like todd in that she has this kind of optimistic outlook which i deplore in its absence in me. she is hilarious and witty and always makes the best of a given situation. undoubtedly fun to be around, and simultaneously very kind, compassionate and generous.
i feel like iv forgotten someone.
let me know if i have.
