It is a good thing to be friends with one's ex. I had a fairly long conversation online with mine; I was feeling pretty good. We don't have the greatest history, but things seem pretty normal at the moment. My girlfriend's ex, on the other hand, is not on such good terms with her... He and his crazy mafioso friend have been giving her grief. Funny, because it used to be the other way around... Given that we acquired them at the same time, they used to be fairly friendly, and my ex-girlfriend wanted to kill me.

It's odd... I used to find the whole suggestion of "Let's just be friends" inconceivable... How could you go back to a situation after having felt so strongly? But here I am. I guess I oughtta listen to chicks about that kind of stuff more often.
