The timing of these things...

I have to have a moment!
Background: when I was 11 years old, I made an online friend called Latisha. We met through a now non-existant website created by the people who made our then-favouritest game ever, Dogz3 (you had pet dogs on your computer). We swapped dogs or something, and then BAM! Email pen-pals for YEARS. We talked about everything - especially boys. She was a Christian, and a few years into our friendship, I became a Christian too, so we had that in common. We even spoke on the phone a few times. Eventually, we somehow lost each others' email addresses, and that was that.
In 2007, on a whim, I looked Latisha up on Myspace - and found her! It was so cool re-connecting, but we were different people, busier, with a lot more friends, and we didn't really stay in touch other than the odd update. She told me last year that she was getting married, and I thought, cool.

Today she added me as a friend on Facebook, and I just had a "nawwwww" moment!

I found it amazing that 2 girls who met 12 years ago online, who had so much in common, who went through many ups and downs around the same time, can re-connect and discover even more similarities... to the point where they even get married in the same month!! Yep, Latisha got married December 31, 2008, just 25 days after me. Cool stuff.

Moment over. Written down it's not as cool as what's in my head but meh. My blog, my rules.

Hey, just saw your comment on the Pretty blog. No, I didn't think you were complaining about the measurements at all. I know it can be a pain to always be converting things in your mind so I was mostly just trying to be accommodating to international readers. Thanks for the link. I'll be adding it to a new post soon.

Less than a week away!
