Best Blog Buddies

Last night, we returned from a local pub to find a message from a certain Seattleite on our answering machine.

Lorraine and the Neighbor had decided, on the last night of Iwanskifest, to leave a very funny message involving two Iwanskifest carols. The first, “Oh Box Of Gout” was sung to the tune of “Oh Tannenbaum.” The second was actually a song about Miss Healthypants!—sung to the tune of “Oh Little Town of Bethlehem.” Iwanski and I listened to them and laughed heartily.

And this was not the first time—Lorraine and her lovely family also left a message a week ago involving an Iwanskifest carol about Iwanski and his love of “all kinds of beer.” It was also really funny.

I just love Lorraine. I think anyone who has met her would agree that she is one of the most fun-loving, friendly people in the world. And she is just such a nice person. I feel lucky that we can call her our friend.

And to think, our friendship—not to mention Iwanskifest—all were made possible by this modern doohicky we call the internet. The internet has brought people together who might otherwise never have met—and I, for one, am grateful for it.

I have to admit, most of the reading that I do nowadays is the writing of my wonderful blog buddies, who never fail to make me smile, laugh, and most of all—think. I love that there are people out there who seem pretty similar to me, but all of whom lead unique, interesting lives.

And today, I’m very grateful for all of you (you know who you are). Thank you for making life so interesting!

I'd have to agree here ~ I look forward to hearing from you and Buck every day now! Hope we'll be able to meet up when you are down this way.

Those of us that have gotten to meet Lorraine in real life know just how wonderful she is!..
She is exactly like a celebrity Sage!..she wears a tiara all the time you know.

Lorraine said...

Also, Sling lies. We love him, but it's true.

Lorraine said...

Oh, and I forgot...you've been tagged.

Iwanski said...

Yeah, Lorraine is something of an internet superstar and legend at this point.

LostInColor said...

SUPER STAR Lorraine! Someday I will meet her....

I've had mixed luck meeting other bloggers. I have met five of them and three turned out to be people that I didn't particularly care if I saw again. But the other two...yes...they were keepers.
