why best friends are the best

Why best friends are the best.. (you will know who you are after reading this!)

OTHER FRIENDS: Never ask for food
BESTFRIENDS: Are the reason you have no food.

OTHER FRIENDS: Call your parents Mr. and Mrs.
BESTFRIENDS: Call your parents mom and dad.

OTHER FRIENDS: Bail you out of jail and tell you what you did was wrong.
BESTFRIENDS: Would be sitting next to you saying, Damn...we fucked up...but that shit was fun!"

OTHER FRIENDS: Have never seen you cry.
BESTFRIENDS: Cry with you.

OTHER FRIENDS: Borrow your stuff for a few days then give it back.
BESTFRIENDS: Keep your stuff so long they forget it's yours.

OTHER FRIENDS: know a few things about you.
BESTFRIENDS: Could write a book with direct quotes from you.

OTHER FRIENDS: Will leave you behind if that's what the crowd is doing.
BESTFRIENDS: Will kick the whole crowds ass that left you.

OTHER FRIENDS: Would knock on your door.
BESTFRIENDS: Walk right in and say, "I'm home!"

OTHER FRIENDS: Are for a while.
BESTFRIENDS: Are for life.

OTHER FRIENDS: Will take your drink away when they think you've had enough.
BESTFRIENDS: Will look at you stumbling all over the place and say, "Bitch, you better drink the rest of that, you know we don't waste!!"

OTHER FRIENDS: Will talk shit to the person who talks shit about you.
BESTFRIENDS: Will knock them the fuck out!!

So I woke up at 3.30am cause I couldn't breathe . . . it's now 10.07am!! Will def need a nap later but for now I'm gonna try a really hot shower & see if I can steam some of the congestion out of my system!!

another autumn day

Hmm what to tell you . . . yesterday I watched the movie, Lock Stock & Two Smoking Barrels pretty cool, the dvd even has a "cockney dictionary" in the extras, which just cracks me up, since I only know two people who actually use them on a weekly basis (BJS and RMG)

Aside from that nothing new to report, doing a bit of laundry today, weather doesn't look so good but no rain yet, might venture off to RI tomorrow, but that is still up in the air, wish I had more to report but that's it from my end for the mo, tarra
