are each of your "i believes" directed toward specific people? (my word verification word is ingfug. weird)

i'm gonna be ever so cheesy, and remind you that i'm fairly certain that the friends of yours that i personally know believe the same for you. as do i.

(and olivia, it must be the night for strange word verifications...mine is bleare which i think might be exactly how i feel right now, if it was actually a word)
