You have some weird friends…

I realized the other day that I have a weird mix of friends. Not that that’s bad, it just struck me as interesting.

Now, with the college friends and the move to LA, my friends are scattered far and wide, but if I ever got them all in a room together – that would be weird.

I guess that’s the weirdness you get when you go to most people’s weddings. Everyone knows the bride or groom (or both) but rarely do you know the other people. I tried to picture my friends together and, for the most part, I think they’d enjoy each other – but some of them I *know* would be going “you’re friends with… him?”

The number one quality of most of my friends is that make me laugh. I’m not sure why that is true of all of them, but they can all make me laugh. Maybe it’s because I associate good things with times when I laugh. Best friend Andrew? He can make me laugh with one word. Trust me, he can. Most of those people I can make laugh too. My good friend Naomi adores my sarcastic sense of humor (which only increases the amount of sarcasm in my humor when I’m with her).

Then there’s the classification of friends I haven’t met yet, but feel incredibly close to.  These people span the globe from Colorado, to England, to New York. Someone needs to invent a transporter so I can hang out with these people.

Another quality of my friends? They’re all very giving. When I was out of cash due to bringing my sister to Chicago my friends Merrie, Nichole, John and others all sacrificially gave money to help us out. When I needed to move, there was always a weird conglomeration of friends to help out. When I was sick my friends who lived about an hour away offered to go grocery shopping for me (the store was a block away from my apartment).

I might have some weird friends.. but they totally rock.

    Your friends are a reflection of you. Took me a while to figure that one out, but I’m all good now, and only keep the good ones. 🙂

    Athena is absolutely right. Friends are as much of a reflection of who you are as anything you do. If you only have friends for certain reasons (money, popularity, business), well, that says a lot too.

    I try not to have too high of expectations when it comes to friendships, but I do have high standards. The expectation is for my friends to be the very best people they can be!

    Love you my BTF! 🙂

    Your brain weasel has been stomped!
