[Tia] I haven’t the faintest idea
So Tia and Braden came over on Monday (after dropping off their wedding paperwork, woo!) and we had ourselves a little barbecue. And we ate and screwed around for pictures and watched Trollhunter, which I dug but which Mike apparently found boring. Whatever, that shit was hilarious, and Norway is gorgeous. (Edit: Oh, yeah, except the Polish stereotype comic relief that made me kind of uncomfortable. C’mon, Norway, you can do better than that.)
It’s good to have friends around to hang out with! I know that sounds dopey, but I don’t really have any friends in this town that I spend time with on a regular basis, so when Tia’s back in Chicago I tend to travel to the Bay Area a lot to do friend-type activities, which is fun but a little exhausting. I think the problem for me is that I never really learned how to make friends as a kid, so most of the friends I do have were gained through happenstance or other friendships, and it sometimes comes as a pleasant surprise to me when I realize that somehow I’ve become friends with another person! I just don’t know how to make that happen on my own.
But anyway, to be fair, all my friends are absolutely fantastic people, and I wouldn’t trade them for the world.
(Psst–that means you, Tia! And all you guys out there on the internet, too. Youse my buds.)
Except I’m apparently not that good a friend to Tia, otherwise I would have fixed her necklace before taking this picture of her.
And after she went to all this trouble to focus the camera on my earrings! (I have a beast of a time taking pictures of my earrings, so help is always appreciated.)
Anyway, you know, Tia and definitely I bring out the best in each other, I think. And that’s that.
