Uniqueness: It's what makes life interesting.
Underoos: When I was little I liked to put on my Wonder Woman underoos and top and spin around and around in the yard--until I turned into WW myself. Needless to say, I spend a lot of time spinning.
Unhappiness: Obviously I do not like being unhappy, but I am grateful for how my years of relative unhappiness make me feel so incredibly grateful for the joy I feel now.
U2: I like the old stuff too, but the song "Beautiful Day" is on my current playlists.
Usher: The song "Yeah" has probably brought me entirely too much happiness; it always puts me in the right mood to go out. Oh, the song "Burn" had fun memories too--a drunk coworker sang that song in karaoke one night, and I've never seen him so emphatic and dramatic. It was hilarious.
Understanding: There's not much better than being understood (except being loved). I love the feeling that I have when I feel like someone really "gets" me, and I love trying to understand either people and really knowing them.
Unforgettable moments, the words "uber" and "Uruguay" (I just like the pronunciation)
On to other news, I'm taking tomorrow off and am looking forward to going to my niece Alaina's school (and suprising her with my arrival tonight--or this afternoon if I sneak out of here early)--and hopefully catching up with my best friend, who is a stay at home mom; in the last four years, I think I've seen her twice (for about an hour or two tops) without a child. And as much as I love children, I miss my best friend and being able to have an actual conversation. Her boys will both be in school in the morning, so I'm thinking we might be able to meet up.
In other news, I'm seriously thinking about taking a "big" trip in May. I'm exploring options and despite my enjoyment of my two days alone in NYC, I am a little wary of traveling for two weeks or more alone. I am so connected with so many people now on an almost daily basis that I wonder if I'll feel lonely. On the flip side, I met nice people to talk with each day in NYC. Anyway, I talked to my friend Sam last night, and we discussed the possibility of traveling together. I told him my reservation is that he's an extrovert and I'm not, which in our cases means I like doing things separately a good bit. His take is that we split things up, doing the things I want part of the time and his stuff the other part. My take is that we do the things we both want to do together and divide and conquer the rest, meeting up at night for dinner, since I need some time alone anyway. So we're both thinking about how that might work out and where we might like to go. Regardless the conversation we had made me glad that I finally understand myself and my limits and can express them.
