Cherries

Today was a very cool day. Very cool.

I went to lunch today with Tammi, Tammi's Cuz, and Pam.

I got to meet Pam.

Like my blog? I mean the cool sword at the top? The tartan in the background? The logo? PAM did ALL of that.

I love my blog. I have thought of going back to blogger because of issues with commenting, but I won't. I won't go because I LOVE my blog. I love the look, I love the logo, I love my sword.

I LOVE my blog.

And Pam made all of it.

And I got to meet her today.

And she is... nice... and just... it is hard to describe. There is a warmth about her... a kindness in her face. Maybe some of it is from reading her, you feel like you know someone, but I'd have her in my home and have her to dinner in a heartbeat.

Its a shame that we live an hour apart and it took this long.

And then we had lunch with Tammi, who I can now say I've known for YEARS and mean it even though I laugh. She cracks me up and we just fell into conversation like we saw each other last week. I love that.

And I met her cuz, who was also wonderful. She had me laughing and is another warm person. I'm now picturing cuz and Tammi in the mattress store and laughing even harder because when you know the characters, sometimes the stories are just that much funnier!

On an odd side note, I had us meet at a new Chili's that is not on mapquest yet. So I was stressing, trying to find a way for them to find the restaurant, knowing too that Tammi has direction issues (heh), when I realized that you could see Barnes and Nobles from the street and since Chili's was in the back of this crazy windy shopping plaza, it seemed the best bet that I just them meet me at B&N and then have them follow me to Chili's.

Except.

They all accidentally found Chilis... and never saw Barnes and Nobles and I'm STILL trying to figure out how in the hell that happened. Thank God for cell phones. :)

BTW, Pam had never met a blogger before... we were her first. I hope we haven't scared her away!

It was a VERY good day...thank you for setting it all up, and sorry about that whole stressing part....hehehe the burdens I place on my friends!

It was great to see you again - it did seem like we picked right up at that conversation from a year and a half ago.

Years? Holy Cow!

It was wonderful for me in ways I can't describe, which is why I haven't blogged it yet.

I'd love to get together again when I'm myself. Not that that makes any sense... ;)

Thanks so much!!

I love to meet people I "know" from blogging. Doesn't happen enough.

Just letting you know I still check in often but, you're right, the comments are difficult. More often than not I can't leave one due to spam being high or an imagined inappropriate content. :)

Pam is one person I haven't met yet that I soooo want to meet. I was wondering last night (when I didn't see any posts from any of you all) if you guys had gone on a real binge and made a night of it. LOL.

I'm glad it was such a great time! Yay!

You ain't foolin' nobody when you say you picked a place that wasn't on mapquest... I hope you a got a bunch of giggles out of that one, especially knowin' it was Tammi that was comin' 'cause... that's a good one now! I've filed that in the 'Neck noggin' as a "must use"...
