I love my friends


I love my friends. Not only because they're all good people (that's a necessary requirement, so if I like you, you know you're a good person), but because they're funny, insightful, supporting and caring.

They're also really smart! And articulate! And adventurous (omg, are they that). I'm pretty sure I'm not seeing all my friends through my rose-colored friend-loving glasses. Or, if I am, it's because both Jessica and Mom are looking through the same glasses: both have commented on my circle of friends being the most awesomest. They may have left off the "EVAR" part, but that was understood.

My friends are also creative. Did I mention creative? I mean, check this out, my Christmas present from Shirley:

A custom, hand-knitted cover for my Nokia phone. You know, the really expensive one the company bought me out of spite for Mike's iPhone? You remember, the one that doubles as a bluetooth modem so that, if I have a phone signal, I have Intarweb™. Yeah, that one.

Here, look at the cover close up:

Yeah, that articulate part? Shirley has a blog, too. Actually, not one, but two!. But, sshhhhhhhhhh! We don't talk about that one.

Hi, Shirley!

Another joins the fray!


Okay, so, another friend has decided this online writing thing has some merit. Or at least, this online writing thing is another way to embarrass her friends and family (though, not so much family quite yet). Of course, she plays ultimate (that's for you, Mom), so expect the unexpected.

This brings me to Mark and Megan and family, Keith and Katie and family, Ben and Lisa and Jake, Paul, Steffi, Lori, Christina, and now (Mom, don't click this link) Alice (Mom, I told you not to click that link. Why did you click that link?) who blog.

I'm so excited! It's a trend. Yes, you, too, can bare your soul to the masses on the Intarweb. As long as you're not too disappointed that only 7 people actually read your postings, and that no one cares what you had for lunch, you'll do just fine.

With Alice's life, she'll have lots of blog fodder. Lots and lots of blogging fodder.
