Due to the extremely badass vixen_notatramp, I now have adequate icon space (102 OMG) to insert my love of Rahm Emanuel. Therefore, I thank her for this incredibly awesome and kickass gift. I'm glad we are LJ friends; I mean, who else could I flip over Rahm so fervently with? Who else can instruct me in becoming badass? Rahm thanks you, too, by the way.

High 4 1/2,


lol Look at my mood theme again. Sam looks like he's about to go "HAHAHAHAHA...NO." Seriously.

and ANOTHER thank you

I am consistently pleasantly surprised that people that I don't even know in real life are some of my best friends in the world. They're some of the least judgemental, most helpful, most caring, and most kickass funny people I know.

boogabooga_xx , you are my Winchester sister, and I just want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for your gift. You totally brightened my horrible week, and you DID put a smile on my face. A big smile. Thank you so much. Keep being one of the most amazing people I know. I'm so glad we met! Well, on LJ. :D Someday we're going to have to get together and cause havoc.

♥ ♥ ♥

ILU, chica!
