I apologize in advance for this lazy, self-indulgent post. I think I said yesterday (see? too lazy to even look) that I’m working on something. And here’s the thing–I can’t really tell you what it is yet. For a couple reasons.
The smaller (but the one I feel the most) of the two is that if it’s going to get rejected, I can save myself a lot of pain by not telling you what it’s all about first.
The bigger reason is that the person guiding me through the process asks that I not divulge details until things are a bit more concrete.
I can tell you this. The project is involving a lot of research on my part. But not the kind of research where you go to the library and use the card catalog on the computer and find books about dolphins or giraffes. No, it’s the kind of research where you look back through old journals and e-mails and blog posts and comments on those posts and comments you left on other people’s posts and whew! It’s wiping me out.
But I’m having a ball.
And the words are flowing.
And I am h-a-p-p-y about that.
So. Some of you have the power, THE POWER, to save me minutes (maybe even HOURS!) of thinking and sleuthing by answering one or more questions for me. If any of these apply to you, and you have a free minute (or six) today, would you help me out? Pretty pretty pretty please??
Here we go:
These first 2 are for my oldest blog friends who were at Xanga Fest 2007 and/or 2008 (was that when they were??):
1. What feelings were going through your mind when you got there/while you were there?
2. What is one conversation you remember having, and who was it with?
This one is for people I met online and then in real life:
3. When/how did we meet online and when did we meet for reals?
And this one is a free-for-all:
4. In your experience, what kind of thing has instantly bonded you with an online friend? (i.e., a shared parenting struggle, a tragedy, a similar belief system, her sense of humor, common interests, etc) And give an example.
Oh, thank you, friends. You complete me.
Have a terrific, if not tantalizing, Tuesday!
p.s. I have plans to write some posts here in the next few months that will merit a click of the “Like” button. (see below) In the meantime, if there’s a post in the past that you liked and want to share, feel free to go Like it (is it just me, or did that sound like a veiled insult?).
