I'm tickled pink that our very own savcal (aka Hollie) will be visiting over the weekend.

What cyber friends have you had the pleasure of meeting and/or who would you like to meet?

Hmmmm ... I chat regularly with Suemagoo, as well as a few other providers from two support boards. Sue and me hope to meet at a breakfast place in the hometown of a mutual ivillage friend from Ontario, Canada. Beth, almostfreeof3, and I have become much better acquainted by email ... I truly believe she might be my evil twin sister, because of course I be dah good one. ;0). There are quite a few people here that I would love to meet IRL ... we may not agree on too much, but I respect them.

I just saw this, but I talk to her at least weekly, so I'll pass on the word. Same with Al.

Real life has made them both scarce around here, as can happen. But I'll tell them they are missed. And since Sarah is now a WOH, maybe she has more debate fodder, lol.

we are going to meet one day, and i have to agree, i am way the evil twin. you are so sweet and put forth your words in such a graceful, delicate way, and my being from "jersey" just come out and say it directly. my dad is very direct as well, and i fear i am really a lot like him, personality wise, except for the sense of humor, which came directly from my irish/english grandmother. my dad's side of the family are stiff germans, and(to quote my sister, while disciplining her ds2), "everything in the world's not funny you know!". i busted up, and looked over at my dd and said, oh, but yeah it is!! ROFLMAO!!

we will meet one day, linda!! it must happen. that is one of the values of life!! meeting our cyberspace friends. and like you said, we have waaaaaaay too much in common not to.

I've met some from the 9-5 board (which is dying a slow death) and we had a great time. As a matter of fact, I might be meeting more of them in November when we visit the left coast. One of my "cyber friends" lives about 5 miles from me and I'll see her this weekend. Oh, yeah, then there's almostfreeof3 who I grew up with. I know her pretty well. :-)

I'd love to meet most of the folks on this board. I always have a curiosity as to what they look like, sound like, their body language, etc. that you just can't get from a board.
