I Have A Person

I love the show Grey's Anatomy. I love Cristina and Meredith's relationship. Right now they are fighting. But I think they will make it. Because they are each other's persons. Quotes from the show that I love:

Cristina: "Mer, why do you care what I think?"
Meredith: "Because you're my person!"

Dr. Torres: "Anyone ever think you two are a couple?"
Meredith: "No, because we screw boys like whores on tequila..."
Cristina: "...then we either try to marry them or drown ourselves."
Dr. Torres: "Huh..."

"You're all dark and twisty inside."

"If I murdered someone she’s the person I’d call to help me drag the corpse across the living room floor."

I have a person. Finally. Someone who will accept my flaws and love me anyway. Who will call me out on my crap and know that it won't ruin our friendship. Complete honesty, no bullshit. Sometimes it sucks, but mostly it's wonderful. Because I know I can tell her anything. She will listen to me if I ask her to and not judge. Or she will judge the hell out of me and keep me in line. And I try to do the same for her.

My only concern is that I work with her. And in the past, when I have had friends at work, when we stop working together, the friendship dissolves. Most times because neither person pursued the friendship, but a few times where I flat out did not respond to the efforts of the other person. And yet I complain about not having someone! Anyway, I just wasn't "feeling" it, and I didn't want it to be forced. Of course right now I feel like that could never happen with my person, but that's because we see each other every day and I cannot imagine my life without her. We shall see.

At this time, I am just ecstatic about have a person.

Lost Innocence

Have you ever seen the movie Nemo? It's a cute Disney movie about a fish who gets separated from his dad and their journey to find each other.

However, in the first scene of the movie, Nemo's mother and all her baby eggs (except for Nemo's egg) get eaten by this eel thing. It's so violent! So I decided I NEVER EVER wanted The Boy to watch that scene. Whenever he watched that movie, we skipped the first scene and just started the movie on Nemo's first day of school.

So they showed the movie at school the other day. And started it from the beginning.

The Boy came home and said something about Nemo's mother and I swear I thought my head might snap right off my neck as I whipped my head around and incredulously exclaimed, "WHAT?!?" How could they show this tragedy to my BABY?!? He was obviously going to be scarred for life now.

He is fine. Duh. I'm still a little traumatized.
