As another fun example of how small and strange the blogging world is, check out this picture.
It was taken about 17 years ago when I was living in another country as a "student". I was a very skinny (no fair) 18 year old who was taking some time off school and doing a few service type projects in another country. I met another really great person there and then our paths parted ways. And then she found my blog. First we realized that we shared a religion, adoption and HOLY COW a baby steps friendship a million years and half a world away. That mystery blogger is on the left. I am in the middle (oh, how I remember that sweatshirt, I wore it every day and rarely washed it. But that is because we didn't often have water at the flat, not because I am disgusting...). On the right is my old friend Marnie, who I miss and need to find and wish that SHE would find my blog.
More tomorrow on how crazy (and awesome) our blog connections are, especially to those of us who are surrounded by little people all day....
The first person to guess who the blogger is gets a special treat in the mail (NOT a parcel bomb but thanks for the idea GcQ...). Hint, she is on my blog roll, but doesn't post pictures of herself very often.
