My best friend is so much cheaper than therapy. And her advice isn’t half bad, either.
When it comes to the people you love, you don’t need to do a whole lot–you just need to be with them. (Especially true for an introvert like me). We commiserated on our mutual lack of job prospects, had a rambling discussion about various TV shows (most importantly, the latest episode of Doctor Who), watched random YouTube videos. Then M decided I needed to see The Vampire Diaries. I didn’t protest–much–because Ian Somerhalder:
As M says: he’s basically a younger, hotter version of Rob Lowe. Who is far from shabby himself.
Then we got subs from our favorite sandwich place and hooked up with J. Which lead to a highly irreverent conversation about Pokemon, starring Poopachu and Flippingyouoffachu. We can’t claim Poopachu (that comes from Gypsy Geoff), but Flippinyouoffachu is all ours. And it is the bestest Pokemon EVAR.
Also M found a little Pikachu toy with light-up cheeks that she didn’t want so now it is mine. Chu chu!
The internet has informed me that it was a McDonald’s Happy Meal toy. Who cares–it’s an adorable little chu!
In short, all it takes to make me happy: my favorite people, sexy men, good food, and Pikachu, or some subset thereof. Remind me of that the next time I’m feeling blue, would you?
