Do you want to play? You know you do.  
"Sometimes it's difficult to be alive, you know? Just to try to function.  There are all these people to deal with.  I used to find it difficult to leave the house because of them.  People, I mean."   - Laughing Wild, by Christopher Durang

That line's been running through my head on a loop for the last week. It was from a monologue cutting I did for a scholarship audition, years ago.  It's funny how these thing com back at weird times.

Random thoughts:

*My attention to detail is not good.  This used to bother me, but it simply does not anymore.  If you have to fix my mistakes, try to do so without making me feel stupid.  Or talking to me about it at all.  And I'll do the same for you.

*Conflict cripples me.  I cannot function in the midst of a fight.  My instinct is to withdraw.  The fact that I say nothing does not mean that I agree or disagree, for that matter.

*Because I choose to be silent does not, in fact, make me weak.  I think to refrain from speaking is one of the hardest things in the world to do.

*I love Lego Star Wars with every fiber of my being.  That game has united my children, forcing them to WORK TOGETHER.  The planets must've aligned just right.  I don't understand why Indiana Jones shows up, but I love it all the same.

*blueberry muffins soothe a lot of pain.

*I'm grateful for friends.

*one of my favorite things is going for a walk with my dog.  She's so excited.  And joyful while we're out.  And grateful.  Of course, she's grateful to get back on the couch when we get back, as well.

*I love writing.  I'd become disillusioned with it in the past three years or so, but my love for it is back.  I'm inspired.  So YAY.

* And because I can, and really enjoyed this the last time I did it::

For the first five people that reply to me and re-post this challenge, I will send you something. It might be something I've made, or something cool from my hidden stash, it might be a mix CD, or a rubber duck, a book I think you will enjoy, or something else that is awesome. Whatever it is, I promise that I will get it to you in 30 days or fewer. (Or as long as it takes.:)) The only thing you need to do in order to participate is to be one of the first five to reply to this, AND post this very same thing on YOUR LiveJournal - cause it's fun to give people stuff. (Please read all the comments because I'll be replying to people, and this will make my comment numbers jump up.)  

If I don't already have your address, (and why not?  I'm not a stalker!) you can send it to persephone3333@gmail.com.  :)

I can remember when my siblings and I used to play with the Lego. One of the last things we built together was a Lego Star Wars ship. Amazing. :| Plus it really improves your motor skills (IDK what it's called) so ... good stuff. ;)

Hm. As for the challenge, I think I'll do it, too. I love sending mail. :D

Yay! Jenny! Mail to the UK. That'll be a first for me. :)

They're actually playing on the XBox. A lego video game that's just beyond cute. :)

Oh right!

My brother has that game, but I can never use the controller. :P I have it on my phone though. It's very hard.

I hear that. I don't live up to it, but I totally agree.

Well, thanks.

And in honor of the day, I'll send you a little something without you having to post the meme. :D

Ooh, I love Lego Star Wars. I have both for my PS2. Maybe Indiana Jones is showing up because they are playing the new Lego Indiana Jones? It just came out, and I want it! (But who knows, I haven't finished all the levels, so Indiana Jones could show up in one of the Star Wars ones.)

He totally does! And he has a whip!

Do you want to play the meme game?

I'm good, you sent me something last time, so it can be someone else's turn. : )

I may be too late, but here I am!

At my house we just love Legos period! :D I know there is about 9.1 million dollars worth of them in my sons room. ;)

But I'm glad you're happy again! And friends are fantastic! *hugs Carrie*

I feel kind of silly that out of your list of random thoughts this stood out to me, but, I love blueberry muffins. And they are extremely and strangely comforting. I don't have them very often, especially not homebaked ones, so when I do, it's amazing.

Damn work and forgetting to check f-list again! I didn't see yours. Grrr. I missed your cut but go ahead and comment on mine. :)
