Last night I managed to get out to dinner with 'the girls' and it was wonderful, as it always is. These are friends I've known for thirty years (which seems impossible), I love them unconditionally and I think they feel the same about me. We talked and laughed, and I had some kick-ass Shrimp Portofino. I really needed to get out of the house. It was good for my soul, and the leftovers will be an awesome lunch today.
Yesterday I gave a little shout out to a couple of my commenters, and then I was thinking about the whole blog comment thing. I love to read my comments. They are often more witty, more funny and more insightful that my actual blog. I probably shouldn't point that out, or you'll stop reading my blog! But, if it weren't for this blog, those particular comments wouldn't be there for you to read...well, you get the picture.
The advice I get is usually spot-on, and many times I've had things pointed out to me that I hadn't thought about quite that way before. I especially love it when a little 'discussion' breaks out between two or more of the commenters. Gosh, that truly amuses me. As a giant extravert, being home alone, as I am so much right now, really bites. Daily contact with you through your own blogs and your comments here is a real delight. Thanks for being the smart, funny, caring people that you are.
