It's a Small World Afterall

When I started this blog way back in 2004, I had no idea that almost four years later I'd still be here, or even have anything to say! Inspiration comes in the strangest forms... and real life can be interesting, apparently, because people actually read this! There are so many blogs in my favorites list that I visit religiously because I find them funny, witty or I've found them to simply be good people. While a few of those blogs in my favorites list are people I see "in real life" - I've found there are so many of you that I'm happy to have made my "internet" friends!

Sometimes I'm reminded how small the internet can be as well - two of the blogs I read every day, Nik's and Barbara's, posted about a blogger who had retired and recently returned to blogland, Fred. I actually found Nik and Barbara through Fred's blog, originally, so I'll be stopping by his place to welcome him back - and you should too. Technology is so incredible, because Fred's in Florida, I'm in Vegas, Nik is in Michigan and Barbara in California - and we're able to get to know a little bit about each other and share parts of our lives. If I sit and think about it, I'm astounded at how freakin' cool that is?!

Okay - I'm feeling a little veklempt after all that mush - maybe it's because I am officially ON VACATION!? Nahhhh, that couldn't be it. :) I'm still in the desert until Thursday, but I'm sooooo off work tomorrow!

p.s. - sorry if you have that song going through your head now after reading my title. Or after reading this. Heh!

It is a small world. I found out the other day that someone in Ohio reads my blog and was talking about it to my best friend's sister who also reads my blog. They suddenly discovered they both read my blog and happened to meet in a class at college by change. And I don't even know the first lady!

I was so thrilled to read that Fred is back! Thanks for sharing the news. I have met some really cool people, even in person, even at my wedding, via this blog (hint hint VP). It's like the old shampoo commercial; "I told two frineds, and they told two friends and so on and so on and so on... "

Thanks for being such a great friend...

Veklempt? Love that word.

It's great to be back. Based on the title, I thought I'd be reading about a new Disney park in Vegas.

I've thought about this quite a bit too. It really is mind blowing to think about all the "friends" I've made just by having a blog or being part of a group/site. One of my really good friends happens to be in Australia. We started out chatting about 4-5 years ago and we've become really great friends. Fred seems to be the tie that binds quite a few of us.

Enjoy your vacation Lora, hope you can stand the cold.

Darn it! I didn't have the song in my head till AFTER your little remark at the end of the post....I'll get you for that,LOL

Hey I met Nik today because she found me through you! It really is a small world and I am so jazzed that you and I and a few other old timers (in blog years not age!) are still around. And our hero Fred who introduced so many of us is back. Looking at his link list is like a walk down memory lane.

Have fun on vaca and pack your parka!
