So yesterday in New York I got to meet my cyberfriendmeredith. While for some reason it didn't seem remotely odd to me. I guess because I am odd. Others did think it was strange. Her boyfriend thought she might show up and I would be a guy. Her other friend was very insistent she didn't come to my house (which would have been difficult anyway cause I live like an hour and a half from here). My friend Jen wanted me to have a password. She kept txting me about an "Amy skin suit" ( a la Silence of the Lambs). It really did not ever occur to me that would be anything more than meeting this internet friend who seems a lot like me. She did do a whole blog post that was very funny about being nervous to meet me, what if I hadn't used my own picture or I thought she was a dork (not likely). I did have to leave her a comment saying it really isn't my picture up there. Just to be funny. I don't know if it was but my brother, my friend Lisa and I were quite pleased with our work. I said I was shorter and had facial hair, my brother grabbed the computer and added in that I had a third nipple but you really couldn't tell unless it was really cold and you looked hard. Wait, how old are we again?
So anyway, Saturday rolls around and I get a call from her, she had just gotten to her hotel and ran right smack into David Beckham and Posh Spice. I took that as a really good sign. I don't know of what, that's just how I am. So as it turns out we do meet in Union Square at a very public restaurant and she is as nice and normal and pretty as she seems from her blog. We drank some wine and chatted and it was really fun. My brother met us after a while and we all hung out. After a bit she had to go get ready to go to the party she had flown up here to go to. We said goodbye and off she went.
My brother and I went out to dinner. While we were there this guy he has dated starts txting him. We refer to him as Smokin' Asian guy. Well Smokin' Asian guy wanted to meet my brother out later but first he had a birthday party. Just for fun I said, "Ask him if he's going to Bill's party." Guess what? He was. In a city of eight million people my cyberfriendmeredith and Smokinasianguy are going to the same party. Just makes me want to break out in a Disney song.
