I’ve been doing the meet-people-from-the-internet thing since…1999? I’ve had people from the other side of the planet stay in my house for a week when I’d only known them online. I’ve had the same people host me on the other side of the planet for 4 weeks (and let me share their Christmas). And even last year, spending a girlie weekend away with girls I’d only just started to get to know online.
My real-life friends and family regularly give me That Look whenever I discuss Internet People. That’s when I remember that I’m a bit spesh in that I’m not an overly social person, usually not good in starting up conversations, yet I easily put myself in these ‘meet-up’ situations. But I keep doing these things because it’s always nice to find people in a seemingly random way and find that these people are nice and friendly and somewhat nerdy :o)
So today I got to meet
and it was such a great way to meet interesting women who have interesting stories and hobbies and all sorts of things. To go from one extreme of having a food blogger to having someone who’s never eaten Yum Cha before. Everyone so very different, but able to sit at a big table in a noisy restaurant and manage to keep conversations going the entire time.
I’ve still been feeling a bit off-the-planet with the drugs I’m on after Thursday’s trauma and I dare say I was a bit of a doped-up version of rah today. These poor girls were very kind and tolerated me and my ADHD-like tendencies today :o) Amanda even came to the Swarovski shop with me while I bought myself a sparkly ring!
Thanks for a great day gals, promise to be a bit more normal next time ;o)
