From start to finish, it was wonderful. I met some people I have followed and adored for a long time and everyone exceeded my expectations. There were people I haven’t seen for a while and new people I had no idea existed that were amazing too. I’m not going to name names because there are too many of you to mention but it was truly a pleasure talking and hugging all of you. And the fact that some of you said I was on your people-I-want-to-meet-tonight list, squeeee, so flattered I can’t tell you.
And a special thank you to Michele and Chris for making it all possible. You guys totally rock and I can’t wait to see you again.
Today is the 6 year anniversary of Chris and I first "meeting" online.
6 years ago today I was sitting in a chat room, feeling sorry for myself and loathing the person I had become and just feeling broken and more lonely than I think I had ever felt and my IM chimed and I look down and I see this message….
“You sound like you’re really angry. You must be fat. Do you like Yodels?”
And that was it.
He made me laugh for some reason and he’s kept me laughing ever since.
