Here’s to new friends
I want to tell you all about Carla Harker, my new friend I met from the internets.
I don’t know what made me follow a gamer girl/writer, someone who I would likely have nothing in common with, but I guess that’s part of the fun of following somebody totally new (I mean, like, TOTALLY. Like, none of my existing friends follow her; I just happened to find her all on my own). But she seemed smart and she seemed funny, which is basically the main criteria for being my friend (well, that, and being accepting of weird people like me).
So yeah, I’ve got the “I’m glad I don’t regret following you on Twitter” smile going. If you want to check her out yourself: @DeadlyAccurate
And then, AND THEN… she went and wrote this story about a guy named John called Safe Space. It really hit me. I know that feeling. I feel like I shouldn’t have to, but I know that feeling. It reminds me of something I wrote back in 2005, which I’ll post tomorrow (meaning: in a little while), but I wanted to get this out before I nodded off. So go read that story already!
(unless you’re Carla. and hey, Carla? if you’re worried that I sound like a goofball, don’t worry. MAYBE 4 people will read this (including us))
