With small delicate features and a long oval face, Mr. Arnett has the genial aspect of a 1950’s plaster mannequin. He opens doors and lights cigarettes for women. You can tell he’d look dapper in a suit. When Ms. Poehler left the table, Mr. Arnett, a Canadian who attended French-speaking schools in Toronto, urgently whispered, “I’m in love with that woman, and I don’t know if she’s picking up on my energy.” (x)
Ms. Poehler complained about her husband’s height and her lack of same. (She’s 5-foot-2, he’s a foot taller.) “I hate to pose in photos with him,” she said. “It looks like he’s taking his niece to the ‘Shrek’ premiere.” Mr. Arnett lay down his cards. “You just don’t understand the burden of being tall,” he told her gravely.
“What?” she asked.
“Constantly being looked up to,” he said with a straight face. (x)
Ah, what a gem you are. Thank you, thank you, thank you. For this sweet message that completely lifted my mood, and for always being so gracious and so warm to me. I’m doing alright, I’m just trying (and sort of failing) to juggle a lot of things and changes going on without getting to that level of overwhelmed where you go kind of crazy. You know that crazy? Where you like, put a sneaker in the fridge and go get the mail in your underwear (That second example may have been based on actual events..). It’s already starting. I’ve watched 5 full seasons of The Hills in like, 2 days and have no memory of how it happened. I hate The Hills (does anyone actually like The Hills?)! But back to my point: It’s been a lot of changes, some are inevitable changes that have slight silver linings ahead (hopefully), and some are chapters that I’m either extremely disappointed in, or chapters that I’m just really sad to be closing. But I’m doing as good as I can be with the circumstances. And having wonderful people around definitely softens the blow :)
I don’t consider you a stranger by any means, and please know that everything you so generously offered my way absolutely goes both ways. I know you’re dealing with things too, so know that I’m always here for you. Anything at all, just say the words. Us talking is probably something that should happen regardless, because I absolutely adore you. Thank you for being the chicken soup to my soul 24/7 :) You are phenomenal. <3
- That thing where you don’t feel sad, just a little bit slow.
A new and important phase in your life is about to begin, where the planets give you the most positive vibration you’ve had in long while. It’s this positive attitude that will carry you through even some of the most gruelling changes which are going to occur. Try to keep in mind that you are not in a race, and that today’s road to success involves slow, calculated steps towards your goals.
This relaxed me almost as much as it scared me.
We all dance with veils, revealing enough of the truth to entice, but not enough to fully confront.
