When you come out from behind the computer screen and gather with a blogger friend to realize that maybe you already knew each other before the blogosphere? Not so much previous life shit, just already knowing you would be friends in real life, minus the blogposts, comments and photographs.
This was my fifth time to meet and greet an online friend.
Hashi lives in L.A. originally from Australia. (Yes, she has that delightful accent we love to listen to.) Our similarities include being green and crunchy, vegetarians who love to throw a dinner party, dance, drink red wine and cold beer, neither of us own a TV, we sew gifts for friends, photograph special moments, we are thrift store junkies and unimpressed with fame and fortune. We love our tattered and patched jeans.
and her name is Deborah
spelled just like me!
(and she is almost ASL certified....one of my fantasies to become an interpreter for the deaf)
so which came first...the blog or the friendship?
Not that it matters...
of course the blog was our connection, but it seems like we already knew each other.
Thank you Bloggyhood
