Absolutely. I think it's wonderful you were listening to my music, and they're not really your friends if they can't support your musical tastes.

Tell 'em fuck off from me. :)

Someone said that it didn't look like I'd aged a day in 20 years, but deleted their comment, so here's my reply: Bless you! Bless you!

I don't know? I don't drink, I don't smoke, I eat really healthy, I work out pretty consistently, and I think perhaps most importantly, I'm grateful every day. And I don't know, the whole thing about beauty comes from within, and when you meet someone and their eyes are shining and they smile, they might have really crooked teeth but there's something that emanates from them, it's just beautiful. Hell, I don't know? I barely remember to put sunscreen on most days. Let's call it good genes. That probably plays a big part in it. I have really oily skin, I was told by a dermatologist that it's a good thing even though it drives me nuts.

I surf. I do a lot of things that bring me joy. And I'm so lucky, I love my job. I have so many things that bring me joy.

Wow. Makes me feel good to know that I was there with you and her in some small way during such a difficult & Important time.

And you wouldn't believe how many people use that song for their wedding. And I just smile quietly to myself. Like "oh, that's nice."

Back then, I viewed nudity not as a sexual tool but as a statement of openness and vulnerability. That being said, I was very young and naive, but I wouldn't have done it any differently. I think for me it came from a place of innocence. Women have been sexualizing themselves since the beginning of time, and I hope the way I represented myself was different than that. And I don't believe in regret, it's a waste of time.

Fuckin' A! Glad to be there with you.

I love you, that's a perfect answer.

Wow, you need a hug.

Well, I think we already answered that but nothing in the works. And I change the channel too. It's the kitten with the droopy eye, or the 3-legged dog, bless them, it kills me.
