Posting again just to say: friends can make everything better. Wow you guys, what would I do without you?! And *snugs* to sillie82 for the v-gift! I love squirrels!
EDITED TO ADD:
Friends are truly amazing people. You know they're lovely and you know they're always there for you, but then they do something that just blows your mind and leaves you feeling like you just might be worth a damn after all. <3
