I love how crazy Greyboy gets when he's high on catnip :P

And I can't resist this meme since The Worst Journey in the World is the closest to me right now haha (I told mom she HAD to read it, so she took it to her house and I found it on a table next to me lol): Grab the closest book to you and open to a random page, what's the most beautiful quote you can find?

I'm..not sure how out of all the pages I turned to this one, but this is exactly what I was talking about when I talked about how great friends Apsley Cherry-Garrard (*shivers* I love typing his name!!) and his companions were:

'You've got it in the neck, stick it, you've got it in the neck'--it was always running in my head.
And we did stick it. How good the memories of those days are. With jokes about Birdie's picture hat: with songs we remembered off the gramophone: with ready words of sympathy for frost-bitten feet: with generous smiles for poor jests: with suggestions of happy beds to come. We did not forget the Please and Thank You, which means much in such circumstances, and and the little links with decent civilization which we could still keep going. I'll swear there was still a grace about us when we staggered in. And we kept our tempers--even with God

Wow. Great friendship like that is hard to come by! This actually made me super emotional. (Now I'M thinking that weird "stick it" saying, like when I push a cart full of books lol.) Very amazing and inspiring <3

I was reading old surveys from the end of last year and the beginning of this year, and wow I could see how depressed I had become! I can't believe I waited so long to get help!

Name something beautiful )
