envy you envy me

said:

This is the vainest meme ever, but I can’t resist. It’s like listening in when you hear your name in a nearby conversation.
We all have things about our friends that make us slightly envious.
Not in a bad way, but in a “Wow! I wish I had that person’s hair/eyes/money/relationship/toenails/whatever.”
So tell me what about me makes you envy me… then if you feel like it, post this in your LJ and see what makes me envious of you.

wow. i guess i envy your ability to tell stories…to weave words in a way that creates worlds on pieces of paper. i also envy your dedication to climbing and the lovely shoulders you have as a result.

so, there ya go–no need to reply–nothing much to envy here.

    I don’t know you well enough to envy you, but you seem to have a nice partner, and I am glad to hear you’re doing well.

    Silly you . . .
    Hey, I envy your ability to draw and paint. I envy the way you write about your thoughts and feelings — so poetic and moving. I envy the way you connect to food (growing, preparing, nurturing). And boy, do I envy your amazing, beautiful spirit!
    So there 😉

      Re: Silly you . . .
      yikes! this from the most brilliant woman i know. you make me blush, and so now, take this:
      i so envy your razor-sharp intellect; analytical skills (about *everything*, not just biology); your ability to set a goal and achieve it in record time (i.e., martial arts, riding); and how you soften it all with love and compassion.
      whenever i can’t quite figure out a thing (like the astrology question), you are who i think to ask.
      i wish you lived closer.
