"I am ranking topics of conversation for our next phone call. The worst part about your best friend living in another stupid state is the topics really pile up."
Yep. Jum and I have been doing this since 2002. We make lists as topics occur to us. It’s important to be organized so as to get the most out of our phone calls, especially since one of us became a mother in PST and one of us started going to bed at 8:00 pm CST.
In case you don’t know good movies.
God, she makes me so happy. Have Dolly and Julie ever sung together? That would be like heaven. Just joy every place.
Kinda can’t believe this is a gif. I think it and say it to myself all the time, like just now, and here it is. I heart you interwebs.
These two. Forever.
The world we live in can’t be all that bad if it contains these women’s voices, these songs, that neon, and all those cowboy hats. So many memories, and the warm fuzzy feeling of hearth and home.
Also, do kids still “play house”? Do they still call it that if they do? That was my favorite when I was a kid. That and “teacher”. But I realized listening to this that I haven’t heard a kid mention it in forever. :/
My dad once told me, during a very me-ish hysterical frenzy, “DON’T be an idiot.” It snapped me out of my meltdown, and I think of it frequently when I need to talk myself off an emotional ledge.
I have a tendency to get caught up in circumstances and let my emotions be carried along by the current. It’s a flaw; I acknowledge it. I just have to recognize it and remind myself that, for better and for worse, I have built my own life. I led myself into a deep, dark hole, and I pulled myself back out of it. I created a career that fulfills me out of a pile of mistakes and wrong turns. *I* decide what makes me happy and which goals I pursue and how I live and will live my day-to-day - I say who, I say when, I say how much - and my happiness does not depend on a single other person walking the face of this earth.
Sometimes I just need to remind myself.
Then I read, not ten minutes later, that “Everything you want is on the other side of fear.”
There’s something about this iPhone commercial with both Jimmy Fallon’s and Justin Timberlake’s voices that makes me want to punch the TV in the face.
I would like to say for the record that Viola Davis is one of my favorite women in Hollywood and is - for a number of reasons, including her smile, which I love - at least as beautiful as anyone else you could name.
