in a ridiculously warm fuzzy mood tonight, and because of that, I
wanted to completely embarrass myself all over the internet.
It's the even of my 36th birthday, and it makes me happy to know that
you guys are out there. Whether we've hung out this year, only talked
online, let our friendship cool a little, or maybe never even met in
person, I still appreciate every single one of you. Thank you.
Thank you for being you, an individual, one of my friends. Whether I
make you roll your eyes at my antics, laugh at my jokes, or piss you off
with what I have to say, you're still here.
I'm not popular, "normal", easy to understand or even to get close to.
So, the fact that you've hung around this long means something to me.
I'm lucky. Without you, I'd just be a pain in the ass without an
audience and a whisper in the wind. You give me, something to think
about, something to fix, and a purpose. I am what I am because of you.
I am not powerful, I am not aggressive, I am not many of the
things I've been called. I exist. You give me the rest. And that
fills me up to the brim, all 215 pounds of me, with joy. Thank you.
