GETTING TO KICK UP YOUR HEELS WITH A NEW FRIEND is not an every day occasion. So there I was, waiting at home on Tuesday night, with great anticipation, for the real Jeane to appear. You all know her Blog, ARTIT, filled with artistic accomplishment. And soon she would be crossing my threshold.
The doorman rang me. "Send her up, please". Waited at the door..elevator stopped..and coming towards me, an incredible smile attached to a very radiant woman, was Jeane...hurray!!Shrieks all around as she entered with her friend Lisa. Jeane had announced on her blog, a trip to NY. I had casually mentioned "Call me" in a comment. The blog was coming to life, because Jeane said she would. Very simple. Not for a minute did I think that we wouldn't get along as great pals. You can really tell about that sort of thing. Hey, you could be here right now..you just know we'd be fine.
So we toasted, and drank a bit of wine, and toasted, and drank a bit of wine. We are all quite talkative, surprise! Jeane is such an ingratiating person, laughs easily, has a happy and open demeanor. A very attractive woman with a welcoming smile. And her friend Lisa was charming and fun. Our conversation was the best talk show around!...Plus a little wine, and a bit of chocolate cake. After all, this is the home of Choclat Sin! And I tried to live up to that standard.
I'm so grateful for the confluence of forces that play within the bloggy world, that could bring strangers from opposite coasts to a place where we would sit down as friends. My only regret is scaredy cat Milo, who spent the whole time under my bed. Well, maybe next time.
