This week was kind of hard to take. Being sick and not sleeping well didn't help matters. However, I was provided with a much needed break from the suckfest of the last few days.
It never ceases to amaze me how simply hanging out with friend can just... release tension. It had been quite a while since I did anything with Jenny but we finally got our acts together and made dinner plans. Since I last spoke with her, she bought a house and got another job. Does that speak at all to how long it's been?
I have to say, it was a very welcome and much needed break. One of the things I love most about hanging out with Jenny is that one minute we can be talking about something very serious, slip into talking about something ridiculous and transition from one conversation to another absolutely seamlessly and there's never (in my memory, perhaps she feels differently) been an awkward moment. It's great for venting. And that's just one of her many qualities. She's actually quite an amazing lady though strangely enough, she downplays how smart and good she is. Jenny, if you're reading this, you're amazing, so realize it. No, you aren't allowed to argue with me.
Seriously though, and she brought this up tonight, how many people can become friends because of an off the cuff remark about Hitler and eugenics? Yes, I was the one to make the remark... but it wasn't as weird as it might sound. We were talking about her upcoming biology test in which eugenics was a factor. Kind of funny that considering our shared interests, we only ever had one class in common.
Alas, in spite of sleeping until noon (I didn't get to sleep until 3... thank you regular headache inducing coughing fits) I'm really tired and must bid you all a goodnight.
Never underestimate the power and importance of your friends.
