I love my friends. Not only because they're all good people (that's a necessary requirement, so if I like you, you know you're a good person), but because they're funny, insightful, supporting and caring.
They're also really smart! And articulate! And adventurous (omg, are they that). I'm pretty sure I'm not seeing all my friends through my rose-colored friend-loving glasses. Or, if I am, it's because both Jessica and Mom are looking through the same glasses: both have commented on my circle of friends being the most awesomest. They may have left off the "EVAR" part, but that was understood.
My friends are also creative. Did I mention creative? I mean, check this out, my Christmas present from Shirley:
A custom, hand-knitted cover for my Nokia phone. You know, the really expensive one the company bought me out of spite for Mike's iPhone? You remember, the one that doubles as a bluetooth modem so that, if I have a phone signal, I have Intarweb™. Yeah, that one.
Here, look at the cover close up:
