You Know What's Wierd?

1. Getting into the first fight you've ever had with your best friend. After almost 10 years of no fights whatsoever.

2. Trying to fix your parent's computer, and realizing there are things on said computer which wouldn't be very appropriate for your parents to find after being at college with your brother for a few years. Very Inappropriate Things. [Wink wink nudge nudge you don't want to know.]

You know what absolutely blogs* my mind?

1. The fact that I am able to fight with my best friend and make up. I've spent all that time in my life agreeing with people I love out of some insane paranoia that as soon as we fight, it will all fall apart. That's not the case. I can argue with people without it being the end of that relationship. My head knew that before, but it's nice to have proof - the argument was inevitable and the crying was embarassing, but we understand each other more now. And there was bound to be one night of maudlin drinking, the odds were in favor for it. I really can't tell you how happy I am to have Lisa in my life. She means so much to me.

2. Having a relationship with my brother that is so comfortable I can call him and leave a message on his phone, detailing the things I've come across on the computer that would give my dad another stroke were he able to use a computer without already having a stroke, and offer to burn those things onto a disk if possible, so he doesn't have to lose them completely. He called me back to say, "I don't care what you see, I don't care what you do, Get Those Off Of There. THANK YOU." He means so much to me.

*That's a typo. But I kept it.

in my opinion, the best friends are the ones that you fight with sometimes.

Real relationships with people are stronger than one personality conflict. As I get older, I find that a lot of the things I used to fight with friends over were small. The amazing part is being able to get past the big things and keep going.

Nicely put, B. I'm impressed.

And I have nothing to add.

I really wish I was that close top my sister. I'm not sure why but we are so distant it's almost impressive. We do live a ten hour drive from each other. But we never speak to each other on the phone. Never. We see each other twice a year or so and she's the complete opposite of me. We don't have a single thing in common. It's like one of us were adopted. Perhaps I should check that out?

Nice weekend
