sometimes u meet people, and you know u'll be friends with them for a long long time. that u'll do anything for them. because they so deserve it. that u'll be there for them - thru thick and thin. that u'll be ready to kill people who hurt them. and the funniest part is you have got to know them only recently. in fact, u're meeting them for the first time. and that's when u know that THAT person & their friendship is something u'll treasure for life.
i knew it was gonna be a fun 3 days the moment galadriel got off from the car and donned her wannabe-cowgirl hat and sunglasses. looking SO very touristy. of course, she didn't clean my apartment for me. neither did she make us the promised sambhar... but heyy, she DID put the daal in the cooker. so, the intentions were there! she also attempted to beat the cake by holding the spoon in hand and turning it around in the almost prepared cake mix! but, she helped by eating it! she also cleaned up my comp, so it's a lot faster now. and of course, she gave me nice nice gifties... :) and also ate up when i cooked. no complaints.
we yakked almost an entire day. and now we know almost everyone on our friends' lists. she also drove me to the mall... in an exceedingly dirty car *ours, of course!* with an exceptionally hot steering wheel. *it doesn't have a cover. vin will not get one either!* she took lots of photos.. since our cam has refused to co-operate and let us take pics. she also attempted to do a dilbar dilbar at the water-wall in houston... where the original was filmed as well! and of course, she sang. and yes, she's a wonderful singer.
she made vin feel completely at home. without drinking a sip! in fact, he was so at home... that he even left his socks on the chair. something he'd NEVER do when we have guests at home. but obviously, she wasn't a guest!
it's moments like these. and people like this. that make this entire blogging experience worth the unemployment! really. i couldn't be happier that i started blogging. neither that i met someone like galadriel. she's everything i thought she'd be. and a hell lot more!
this was the nicest birthday i've had in quite a long while. usually, there's something or the other that screws it up. and last year, was probably & hopefully, the worst. but this one more than made up for it! :) thank u, wise (??) lady of lorien. we're blessed to be friends with thee.
