it's funny and sweet

so last week i got an out of the blue email from a reader of this here blog who lives a few hours away. she and her husband were overnighting it in my neck of the woods for a conference he had to attend. she was going to shop at one of our great Asian markets since where they live they have ZERO and would i want to meet for a beer.

i thought about it and thought, why the hell not? we've emailed back and forth for a little while now and honestly, it's kind of neat...meeting someone with whom you've only shared emails/blog comments (isn't it, B?).

i had a *dentist appointment at 11:20 (yea no cavities! just two old fillings need of which has just fallen out) and i told her i would call her when i was done.

we met close to one of her favorite markets (it's HUGE) and grabbed a bite to eat. it was so so sweet to meet you V!!!

we talked of knitting, great Thai places to eat in town (glad to hear you liked it too, V), as well as our lives. it was so easy to sit and chat with one another. a new friend in this life i live. it's funny where and how we meet people. isn't it? funny and sweet.

we'll do it again sometime, i'm sure.

*any people in pdx who need a dentist...i've got your man!

Glad you had a good time. It is nice when people can come together like that.

It's funny; we caution our kids not to meet people that they "know" from the internet, but I've met many nice people through my blog. Yes, it's sweet.

The first time I met someone from the online world was a blogger in Bend; she offered to come and teach me something. I gave her my address, and thought, oh shit, what happened if she were a murderer?! So I asked her, tactlessly, if she was a murderer?! Man, I was dumb! :)
