I said maybe, you're gonna be the one that saves me

December 17, 2004

Thank you, lovely people on the innernet, who have been so kind to me in the last few days, which have been NOT FUN, and I really cannot emphasize the real "lack of fun" that has been had by anyone in the last few days, but needless to say, there was NO FUN INVOLVED.

And I have been met with nothing but such love from Al, Hannah, and AB, who sent me a dozen roses, and Robyn, and Amy, and everyone else who has just been SO NICE. Why are y'all so nice? (And also, how come I can't make links work on a Mac? Someone needs to explain this shit to me.)


Y'all, I love you all more than breath. I really do.

So, all this is to say that things have not been very funny around the Doxie house lately, and I'm sorry I haven't posted, but y'all know. Shit's been going down. Hopefully, things are improving, and very soon, I'll have some fantastic post about how my sister and I got drunk and fell down. (People! Ziz just got into town! EVERYONE SAY HELLO TO ZIZ AND THE HILARITY THAT WILL MOST CERTAINLY ENSUE. Such "hilarity" may involve my obsession with the Amish, but I make no promises.)

But back to my...point. I am sure I had one, but frankly, I'm on Glass of Wine Number Threeeeee with Ziz already, and I am not kidding when I admit that it is REALLY KIND OF FUCKING TAKING A LONG TIME TO TYPE. In case you were wondering. And also, we are listening to my iPod, and the convergence of different styles of music when we choose the Shuffle At Your Own Risk option is kind of BLOWING OUR MINDS, and we listened to threeeee Smiths's songs, and then Peter, Paul, and Mary sang Puff the Magic Dragon, and it was getting verrrrrry Kumbayah! in here, and then SOMEHOW Mr. iPod decided to follow this up...with Marilyn MANSON. At which point my head blew up. Pop! As in,


Head: Pop!

Ziz: Haaaaaaa. Now pick up the pieces of your head and get me more wine.

(Also, on yet ANOTHER totally different note, can you tell that Oasis was playing when I started writing this entry? You could? Y'all, what gave me away?)

But I have veered so far away from my Major Actual Point, which was to say the following: I had no idea how kind, understanding, and thoughtful my friends could be, and I feel like the luckiest girl alive. Thank you all so much, and I love every one of you. More than breath.

Merry Christmas, y'all.

Merry Christmas to you too Darlin! Kisses to the puppies and, well, Merry Christmas to El Dukay and Ziz too!

Am not drunk yet, but hope I will be soon! Cheers!

Miss Dox, you're being so cryptic! I'm worried...Fret, fret, fret, that's all I can do. I am so happy you have such wonderful and pretty friends to help you through, well, whatever isn't perfect in Doxieland...

Best wishes always from a Total-Archive-Readin'-Lurker, and I mean all of it, y'all.

Ah, the Amish. I grew up in eastern Pennsylvania, near Lancaster County, Pennsylvania Dutch country. One time my Girl Scout troop took a trip out that way, and the highlight of that was that actual Amish guys taught us how to make soft pretzels. That is RIGHT!

Once you and Ziz are appropriately drunk, a fun activity would be pretzel-making. It's a great sobriety test. If either of you is able to make a pretzel that actually looks like a pretzel, guess what? You need to drink quite a lot more than you have.

Take care, kiddo. Down a few for me.

Hope you're well, Miss Doxie! I'm sending lots and lots of good internet vibes your way, and hoping that whatever ails you goes away sooner rather than later. Hang in there, sister!

What really sucks? Everytime I pop by to see if you've posted again... I see that tag from Oasis, and............

The damn song gets stuck in my head for EVAH!

Merry Christmas, shiny pretty drunk Doxie. ;)

Posted by: Mir | December 20, 2004 02:52 PM

Even when you are sad? You are funny and delightful. Meanwhile, I get all bitchy and start throwing things on your behalf because GOD DAMN YOU UNIVERSE WITH THE BULLSHIT.

Clearly, Ziz needs to come visit ME next. With wine.

You should definately buy yourself something pretty to negate the unfun in your life. May I suggest a nice capelet?

Posted by: daisy | December 20, 2004 08:49 PM

I totally love you. In fact, love is not a strong enough emotion. I lerv you. I totally lerv you.

I hope things get better soon, Leigh.

Hang in there, as Grandmas around the world say 'this too shall pass'.

I'm worried about you, Miss Doxie. Hope all is well. Have a Merry Christmas and no matter what it is, it will get better.


Posted by: Jenjapea | December 21, 2004 02:08 PM

okay, we all are freakin' because you are not okay. And you are not posting. Hello, you are not posting!!
Merry Christmas, Doxie, hope all is well with you and yours.

Dear funny pretty Doxie, I am sending you all kinds of happy thoughts and stuff and I will be sure to send you extra happy thought when I am out buying new shoes. Next week. Because my dog, who is coincidentally named Bo and is badder than all of your dogs combined, decided that it would be better for me to have clogs and proceded to eat the backs of my nice new-ish leather shoes. And then we had a snow storm. Lots of love and happiness and good Christmass-iness to you, sally

I'm a new reader (got here from Hashai) and so for now I'm content with the archives. :) I hope you have a Merry Merry - take care, girlie.
