I love you internet!

I’ve met very few people in real life after reading their blogs, but those I have met and still those I have yet to meet have changed my life in countless ways. Two years back I met Andy for some swimming and he turned out to be an absolute riot. We stuck ice buckets on our heads and played guitar and had an all-around great time whilest he was on his travels and ended up in my wee little state for a short period.

And more recently, I met Binky and absolutely fell in love with her and her entire family.

Binky and TolbyShe lives in Connecticut too, and we first met at a park to take pictures of her adorable daughter.

We had been following each other around the internet via blogs and emails for quite some time and meeting her felt much like a date without the sex appeal (of course, if we were both lesbians we would already have left our men and filed for a civil union because that’s how cool she is), butterflies in stomach were included.

I was very nervous to meet the pair and came out of that day at the park loving them both as if I had known them for ages.

Binky and I like to compete for who has the messier bedroom and when her little darling baby says “thank you” or falls down and says “uh oh” with no tears, I realize how much I love the internet for introducing me to such awesome people.

Like this morning, for instance.  An internet friend of mine in Detroit  who knows what it feels like to be unemployed–that whole not really knowing what purpose I serve in the world feeling–sent me a picture message this morning of his son Max (Hi Max!) to brighten my day. I’ve been smiling all day because I know that there are some really cool people out there that think of me even though they’ve never actually talked with me face to face. It’s nice to know that I have friends like you all over the world.

There really is nothing like the internet. You all rock my socks.

In comments: have you ever met anyone from the internet? What was it like? Are you still friends? Did you later file for a restraining order? 🙂

In other news, filing taxes sucks.
