|Dawn and me in the back of her car |
in -16 degree Celsius temperatures! :o) Can't
you see I'm all rugged up?
Um ... yep ...
With your face sketched on it twice
Oh you're in my blood like holy wine
You taste so bitter and so sweet
Oh I could drink a case of you darling
Still I'd be on my feet
oh I would still be on my feet ...
I had a MARVELOUS time with Dawn in Canada. No, we didn't leave the house much (except when going to her office to do some work -- yep I had to take it with me -- boo), but, oh my gosh, did we get along like a house on fire. Lucky, because we really needed the heat in the blizzardy weather :o)
And I was in Calgary. In an airport, four hours drive away from Dawn, (she lives in Edmonton) so I couldn't even go back to spend the time with her. :o( I didn't leave Canada until a full 24 hours later than scheduled and I'm really behind on my work, but ... ho hum, never mind, it was TOTALLY worth it.
For the past 1.5 years, Dawn and I have been chatting on Gmail EVERY SINGLE DAY. I knew our friendship was a very special one. I knew she would take up a big chunk of my heart for the rest of my life, but I had no idea the feeling could get even more special, until I met her face-to-face. Now the chats do not really suffice. We've got a taste of this friendship in "real life" now, and it's going to be very difficult to adjust to this "internet thing" again. Woe is me ...
Dawn, if only I could call you up and say, "Wanna meet at Tim Horton's for a coffee after work despite the coffee tasting like shit?" (Sorry, Tim Horton, but after drinking European coffee all these years, yours sucks.)
Dawn. I miss you! And you had BETTER make it to Greece this summer! Or ... or ... or ... I'll kidnap your dogs somehow and you'll just have to come and get them.
Have you ever met any friends you've made blogging face-to-face? How was it?
- Check out one of the most interesting interviews I have ever participated in over at Eight Cuts Gallery. Wow, this guy really knows how to craft a question!
- Also, I'm in the process of compiling my life's work in music to sell on Bandcamp.com. Well, whatever is friendly to the ears ... so stay tuned.
- And pretty please with a cherry on top, if you are on Goodreads, could you do me a quick favour and add String Bridge, and Twisted Velvet Chains, to this Listopia list? It will help people find it better! Thank you!
PS: I did have a reason for the title of this post, but I seem to have lost it ... hmm ... *rubs jet-laggy eyes*
