friends - a beginning

So I'm sitting here, listening to Antenne Bayern Schlagersahne, checking Facebook posts, playing some Bejeweled Blitz, reading my friend's blog, thinking about what needs doing around the house, and generally wasting good sleep time.

I've been thinking about friends and friendship lately .. I've reconnected with some old friends, I've made some new ones, I've lost some. I've even had Jann Arden refuse to be my friend on Facebook. Go figure. I'm not sure why she wouldn't want me as a friend .. she's got over 4800, what's one more? Jann, why won't you be my friend? We have 4 friends in common!! I'm a nice person, I like your music, I think you're funny, I love that you sent Anne Murray a mannequin's leg. I don't get it.

Anyway, back to my real friends .. many of whom I only "see" through Facebook. It's a nice little networking site. I guess I have a lot of friends but only a few really good ones. That's probably all anyone can ask for.

I've got to get to bed .. I'll get back to pondering friendship at a later date. But seriously, Jann, why won't you be my friend?

2 yrs

I can't believe it's been 2 yrs since I posted anything on here ... not that I haven't had things to ponder, just that there doesn't seem to be time to sit and write it out. How sad is that? I don't think I can handle staying up any later than I already do ... and yet that seems to be the only time there is for getting anything done.

I will try my best to get back to this more regularly .. that's a promise I'm making to myself so it doesn't really matter whether you believe me or not. :)

My son (he's 5 now) has recently been pestering me (and then waiting fairly patiently) for me to make him a new cd with his favourite songs and tv themes on it. I can do that. I can find all the tunes he wants ... and then when I ask him about it he mentally discards quite a few, so it is a longer process than one would think. I should just put a bunch of songs on a cd whether they are the 'right' ones or not .. but I don't like to think that I made a cd that he fast forwards through just to get to the tunes he likes. I want him to feel like shouting "that's my favourite" as soon as he hears the opening strains of every single song on the cd. Too much to ask? I think not.

I'll be back soon.
