And I love you for loving these things. It's moments like this -- ie, when you mention Michelle Williams' Oscar dress alongside countless other quirky favourites -- that I know we were meant to be friends.

I think I might be addicted to books. And noodles. I need the ocean. I want to know everything. Almost. I love love. And loving things. Like love. And like.
