For Sallee

Because she made me promise last night that I would update my blog. Because she listens to my mindless babblings when I am finally feeling like myself and ready to talk about normal things. Because she checks up on me and tells me to move over when the response is tears welling in my eyes. And then just snuggles and talks as we squeeze into my big leather chair. Because she has a lovely family, and when little brother Morgan came over last night, we laughed harder than I have in a long time. Because she is beautiful and dedicated to her health and her thesis. Because she reminds me that I am not crazy, and tells me that my room isn't that bad (when it obviously is). Because she tells me that I'm hot, and delights in my bosoms. Because she's intelligent and witty and compassionate. Because she is selfless and wonderful.

It makes me so happy to know that my sarah has such wonderful people around her. Thank you, Sallee, for being there for my wonderful sister when I can't be.

Hermit Marie would never have imagined when she left home for college all those years ago that she would not only endure her roommates, but would actually love most of them. And that some of them would become her dearest friends. Darn you -- you're making me regret my first solo apartment! Paying all this rent by myself, and what do I get for it? Watching Arrested Development ALONE!
