Feeling mopey.  Wishing I could cuddle with a certain someone.

"Maybe that’s why the sonnet was invented–because people decided they would make an opposing mathematics to love. They would present love like it was an argument, or a paradox, or an exclamation, or some combination of these. If love is confusing, the sonnet would turn around and say ‘confusion is orderly."

"Being a geek is all about your own personal level of enthusiasm, not how your level of enthusiasm measures up to others. If you like something so much that a casual mention of it makes your whole being light up like a halogen lamp, if hearing a stranger fondly mention your favorite book or game is instant grounds for friendship, if you have ever found yourself bouncing out of your chair because something you learned blew your mind so hard that you physically could not contain yourself — you are a geek."

The Mary Sue defines what it means to be a geek, a beautiful definition that falls (un)surprisingly close to what it means to find purpose and do what you love.

And now I have to watch Atonement again.  That will definitely distract me from missing a certain someone….
