my friend Ari just IMed me out of the blue to ask how I am doing...that was wonderful of her. We looked over pictures of our friends David and Mary's wedding and talked about getting together finally after like 4 or 5 years of knowing each other but never meeting. Looks like we may all get together in LA some time, who knows when, but we'll see. If we actually have some resolve it could happen, but we've had our issues with that in regards to these people before. ; ) Anyhow, if we do it would be great to see David and Mary again and to finally meet Ari. She has been a variable friend, but always there, and I've probably cared more about her at some points than a lot of other people I've met in the flesh and blood. I opened this journal (oh so freakin' long ago) at a point when I wasn't so sure how she was going to make out, and now that she seems to be settled and alright I'm very happy for her. : )
i hadn't thought about it, but i really did meet quite a few of the people i chatted with back then. In order, Tonya(whom i still see, and have plans to go skiing/snowboarding with), Tanya, Pandem, John, Mary, David, and then, of WBS, but not of that bunch, Amanda(equality53000)...that's it I suppose. If there's someone I forgot, I'll think about it and get back on it. If you count IRC unrelated to seattle people, you can add rockstarbob. Yikes, if you go back even further, I met people from LWO(lake washington online) too...man i'm a big dork.
