Yes I know this might make me a bit of a sheep, but it's really kind of cool. There are definitely some names I recognize from comments on posts in my friends list and many I do not recognize at all. I am a bit surprised at the one that showed up as being closest, though, as it's one of the names I don't recognize.

And yes, narcissist that I am, I wonder whose list of 'close bys' I might show up on.

TrustFlow II: Who is closest to your friends list?

cinema_babe: (Default)
Despite all of the unwarranted (and unwanted) trouble in my life these days, I got great news today: two friends of mine are in love with each other. These are two people who radiate absolute goodness from their core. They are two souls wild and pure of heart. They have both lived a 21st century kind of life and bear the bumps and bruises of trying to connect and trying to connect, but up until now it's hasn't been with the right person at the right time.

I am so happy for them. I believe that sometimes shit happens and sometimes God lays certain paths in front of us and we have the choice of whether to take them or not. I'm so glad these two chose to take the path that brought them together.

I was going to post some lyrics from Love Song by the Cure but the thought of poetry 3 days in a row.....

....Oh what the hell!

Whenever I'm alone with you
You make me feel like I am whole again
Whenever I'm alone with you
You make me feel like I am whole again

Whenever I'm alone with you
You make me feel like I am young again
Whenever I'm alone with you
You make me feel like I am fun again

Whenever I'm alone with you
You make me feel like I am free again
Whenever I'm alone with you
You make me feel like I am clean again

However far away
I will always love you
However long I stay
I will always love
Whatever words I say
I will always love you
I will always love you

For K and R, ain't it grand.

I have always been one of those people who can get along with (almost) anyone, has a good number of acquaintances at work/school and the like but, only a very few people I consider friends.

I'm a very private person and tend to keep most people at arms length. It's really a big deal for me to let anyone into my "inner circle". Once you’re there, though, I've got your back for life. There is nothing I won't do for my friends: money, mayhem, murder; nothing. (Well, maybe not actual *murder* but you get the general idea.)

I never used to believe that you could truly make friends in an on-line environment because of the loss of the face to face element. (I'll post my thoughts on the Windows of Johari vis a vis relationships on-line and IRL some other time.) I've been lucky enough to meet some great people who have challenged my attitudes about the reality of a relationship between people who only interact in an electronic environment versus IRL. I still think that on-line friendships are a different animal then friendships IRL but I've come to see, no, *experience* that the love, support and, yes sometimes drama, can be there whether you ever share a cup of coffee with someone or not.

People I *don’t* like? I usually try to just to give them a wide berth so I don’t have to be nice to someone I dislike. If I don't like you and you insist upon inserting yourself in my life (try to create the illusion that I like you or cross my "politeness boundary" in any way) let's just say I hope you have a couple of big fluffy towels to wipe up your blood. I'll warn you the first time. The second time? I do my best imitation of a wood chipper on your ass.

I truly don't like letting that beast loose; it's like I become someone else. (There's a streak of mental illness a mile wide in the women on my mother's side and it scares me to imagine what I would be like if I hadn't been in therapy for so many years: smart as a whip *and* angrily out of control....). Fortunately, I don't get violent anymore when I get angry. I feel this tremendous *weight*, a responsiblity, because I really think that in some ways I can do a lot more damage with my words then I could ever do with a well aimed shoe. "The more you know, the more you owe."

Hmmmm, I'm not as scary as this post might make me seem. Really.
