I've met a lot of people since coming online back in the 1994. Friends....not so friendly people
...my hubby....and some BFF. Some I met while on this healthy life style journey here at Spark and CalorieKing.
Then there was the chat friends. We had our home on the web in the form of 30something Chat, an HTML based chat site. It was kind of our own little soap opera in cyber space
. I stumbled on it and soon was friends with two ladies (ticky and Harmony). Turns out one lived like 5 mins from me 9ticky). We met IRL (in real life). The site was run by a guy whose handle was Sleepless...he was actually in Oregon. I met and some other chatters at a chat party we held at the coast.
After he sold the chat site to another guy (his handle was Hatter), some of us migrated to a differnt chat site, Gathering Place. But some of us just couldn't resist the draw of 30something. We would do "drive by" PMs (private message, you could send one into the chat site without logging into it
). Now that was fun!
In the process of all this, some of us formed a group of very good friends..and we called our selves The Absolute Angels
...we had AAngels from all over the world. It was in 30something that I met the two men that became important to me..Hatter (yes..we had along distance thing..he was NYC, but we did have one weekend together IRL
) and the man that is my soul mate, Chuck...my hubby
So why do ask do I bring all this up? Well..this week we've ALL found each other again on Facebook!
And it's like the last 10 yrs away from 30something never happened. We have fallen right back into all the silliness, teasing, flirting ways. The difference is we're all older...we all settled (mostly) and now all that has taken on more of remembrance kind of thing.
It's GOOD to find old friends! The Girl Scouts used to have a song (yes I was one when I was much younger!) called Make New Friends, the first stanza goes like this:
"Make new friends,
but keep the old.
One is silver,
the other is gold."
That about says it all for me. All my friends, both new and old, are like gold and silver. Precious to me.
On the work front...I'm glad the week is over!
The workout front...got a full 5 days of 60 mins a day in. Eating was mostly OK...I stayed within calories most days.
Christmas shopping is done and packages shipped (and received!). I only work 3 days next week then off until the 26th.
So that's it for this Friday! Have a great weekend everyone!
