One of the "substitute people"
Can I substitute for Kirsten?
Here I go again...
Someone wrote me on an earlier entry a few days ago and was looking for a song, "Eyes Wide Open" by Shaznay Lewis. I think it's from "The Calcium Kid" movie and I know a lot of you helped find tunes from the film a few months ago, but this wasn't one of them. Anyone have it? Also, I'm looking for a font, "Rubens" for tularia It seems I can only find it as a paid font. :(

Also a quick thank you to a few people for recent kindnesses they've accorded me. Thanks to shegollum for the more than generous gift! You're a real gem and a generous soul. *squishes* Thanks to jersey_lion, grey853 (and happy birthday, btw) and mrs_erupt for the cards after mom's passing. It was so sweet of you to think of me. Thanks to lyn_t for the My Chemical Romance cd and The Music King, theamusedone for the My Chemical Romance dvd he so thoughtfully shared. Thanks to sissy for the PotC goodies she sent and namarie For the totally unexpected but absolutely *amazing LotR postcards!! How'd you know I'd always wanted those??? (And did I ever send you all the banners you needed? With mom's passing, I've kinda lost track of everything.) And thanks to that wonderful, generous person, Monica (i admit, I can't remember your user name, but I'm lucky I remember my own right now) who sent me the flyer for "In Celebration". You were so sweet to share that with me! *hugs*

And finally, thanks to jenlynn820 for handling the communities while I was gone and *especially* for the gift of laughter. The dancing Orli and Vig thing was a complete HOOT! That visual has brought me so much laughter and pleasure! It's priceless, just like you!

Lastly, thanks to all of my flist again for the condolences you sent me. My father and I were very touched and pleased by your remembrances.

I hope I haven't left anyone out. I'm trying really hard to keep everything together and mind my manners and recognize everyone who has been such a great help and friend to me.

Oh, and hugs to ames1010 and tinkerfairy. Parents will make you nuts!!

I'll shut up and stop rambling now. ;) *hugs flist*
And hey--where's katlinn????? Talk to me woman!

EDIT: Mystery solved!! That would be dollface_uk *slaps stupid brain* Thanks honey!!!! *squishes*

I'd be better if I could get this damn sinus infection to leave me in peace. *hugs*

I'm doing the best I can one day at a time. One of the hardest things for me is something that my life would be hell without--music. I'll hear an older song and it'll remind me of times with mom and I have to either cry or turn it off. It's very hard.

Yay for Nickelback! :-P Btw, did you hear, Chad Kroeger is working with Santana?

No, I hadn't heard that, but it makes perfect sense! I'm looking forward to it now! Maybe it'll be a gem like the collaboration with Rob Thomas was!

I am still just :O :O :O about the comment you left me about your dad and the latest developments. I mean, seriously. Why do things have to be so HARD??? :(

*huge hugs to you*

Trust me, I am too! Geez, you'd think he was in his "second childhood" but everything else is fine and on an even keel. So hell if I know. A very close friend of mine suggested that maybe this is how he's dealing with his sorrow. maybe. I dunno. But it's stressing me! Now not only do I have to worry about no money but now I have to worry with whether or not I'll have one more senior citizen I'll end up having to take care of.

I need a vacation.

I thought of you earlier today for two reasons. One, the aid to Greece with the fire--I hear your countrymen showed up in full force, and quickly. So Kudos! And two, 139 icons is just not enough. Out of all you fabulous icons, to only be able to pick a few is just SO unfair!!!! LJ needs to cough up the userpics!! :)

*hugs* I'm trying, that's for sure.

You know I was thrilled to be able to do that one little thing. I value you and can't wait for things to get better. *hugs* There's a lot of strength in you. Don't forget that.
araestel From: araestel Date: August 29th, 2007 05:37 pm (UTC) (Link)
*hugs* You were really so sweet to share that amazing gift with me!! I keep trying to make it one day at a time, but feeling as bad as I do 24/7, makes it hard to overcome anything. Then add in the stress of my father and his new-found friend, well, it's a lot to have to take. I'm hoping that once the temperature is a little cooler, I'll be able to get out and enjoy the use of it. I'll definitely share pics, too!

I just wanted to drop by and see how you were doing.

Are you feeling better? I hope you are!

Re: *pokes*

I'm not ignoring you. I've not been feeling well and today is the day I "entertain" all day. So I'm exhausted now and am going to bed. I *swear* I'll answer everything tomorrow.
