well, this is a sketch generated list topic.

  • elizabeth - your skin. it's the most amazing shade of olive.
  • marie - your... everything, pretty much. you're all around beautiful.
  • breyon - your eyes. i could honestly stare into them for hours and still be amazed.
  • tyler - your cartoon-like movement. everything you do is so happy & bouncy.
  • jake - i really like how you walk, especially in the cold. you walk with long strides and a slouched back, relaxed but in a hurry incomprehensible to others.
  • john - your eyes are absolutely lovely, and your smile (the real one, not the obliging one) makes me so content. if you would just smile all the time i would be the happiest girl in the world.
