I'm super glad it all worked out for you!! That's awesome! I hope the burger was good
1. It snowed today [not a whole lot - only a couple of inches]!! And I got to drive in the snow for the very first time ever. I had to get those final papers to school and they had to be turned in by hand...no emailing.
Driving was mildly terrifying since the van I drive [
] doesn't have snow tires/4-wheel-drive and I live on top of a very tall hill that has one steep, twisty, guardrail-less, road going down...but it worked out ok.
In my favor, it was below freezing all day so things never really got slick. I only started fishtailing twice [I accelerated too fast
] and each time it wasn't a big deal at all. I was proud of myself!
So that was my big adventure for today.
Atticus was SO happy about the snow...Lacey and Hazel were not.
2. Cute lil' Gman story for you:
As we allll know, I have a mild tendency towards jealousy.
And there's this girl who I knew in high school [they went to college together] who keeeeeps posting on Gman's wall and commenting on his pictures, you know the type. All innocuous enough stuff, of course, but me being me = "!!!!!!!!"
So I sent him a text saying that I went to high school with this girl and asking how he knew her [I already knew, of course, but in the interests of gaining intel..]. He texted me back just "I went to college with her." And since that's kind of the way he texts when he doesn't want to talk about something/is annoyed with a question, I felt sort of bad for being all..'like that'.
So I said something about how this girl and I were never really friends and that that was indicative of my "sad teenage life" and he texted back saying that he had a similar teenage life, that that is what makes us so great now, and that this girl "only likes his dogs".
Basically, I really appreciate how he always, somehow, seems to know what to say to stop my "omg, some other girl luuuuuuvs him and he might luuuuuuv her back"-train of thought.
I saw this quote yesterday that fits: "If you flatter somebody, it will go to their heads. If you love them, it will go to their hearts."
I just really admire how much he, as a friend [at least, haha], loves me. It's really something.
I can only wish that he feels as loved in return.
Also, ok, random question: I wasn't plannning on giving him any kind of Christmas present [and I doubt he's planning to give me one either] but I was going through some stuff I had and I found a little notebook that would be perfect for him [he LOVES notebooks and it's just the kind he especially loves] that I got quite a while ago for something like 50 cents and am never going to use.
I was thinking I might re-cover it and draw a picture of a deer or something on the front, then maybe just give it to him? No wrapping/or to-do...just giving it to him.
Good idea/bad idea?
There's no doubt that he would adore it. But I don't want to..be 'that' girl who's doing 'too much'.
On the other hand, he's always going out of his way to encourage me and whatnot and I'm realllly not great on the spot when he says/does those sorts of things...
However, his birthday is also in April so I could save it until then....?
Anyway, I hope you guys are doing great!!
