Eaten and drunk fairly appropriately given various digestive issues
Marry your best friend. I do not say that lightly. Really, truly find the strongest, happiest friendship in the person you fall in love with. Someone who speaks highly of you. Someone you can laugh with. The kind of laughs that make your belly ache, and your nose snort. The embarrassing, earnest, healing kind of laughs. Wit is important. Life is too short not to love someone who lets you be a fool with them. Make sure they are somebody who lets you cry, too. Despair will come. Find someone that you want to be there with you through those times. Most importantly, marry the one that makes passion, love, and madness combine and course through you. A love that will never dilute - even when the waters get deep, and dark.

Marry the one you can rest into. The one like a glass of cool water and a soft pillow. The one who makes your shoulders unclench just by walking into the room.
So I tried to make polite conversation with our building's youngest tenant
Me: Hey, that's a Harry Potter shirt, right? You like Harry Potter?
Little girl: *hides behind her mom*
Mom: Go ahead, you can tell her.
Little girl: Yeeaaaaaah...
Me: That's cool! Who's your favorite character? Hermione?
Little girl: *shakes head*
Me: Ron? Harry?
Little girl: I LIKE LORD VOLDEMORT.
Little Girl: HE REPRESENTS CHAOS.
Me: That's...fun too.
