Saturday, Sugarcane and Sundary...

...is a title that makes no sense unless you visit the home of my ex-journal.

Sugarcane and Sundary are nice ladies* with whom I have online friendships. They announced that they were leaving the desert for a couple of days to come out here where there is an ocean, and thus beaches.

We all agreed to meet. At first, I didn't think I'd make it. Work has been difficult, and I should have sat here on my fat nalgas trying to finish a difficult article.

But the drive wasn't too far, so I decided a little while spent with them might make me feel better.

And it did.

Three hours of conversation over coffee passed in what seemed like moments. Both of them are interesting, both have interesting lives, and both are easy to relax with.

It's a real delight to find that "friends" can turn out to be friends, and these two definitely brightened my day and my weekend, to say the least.

So here's a picture of sugarcane (on the unidentified derelict's left) and "the Fucking Midget"** on the right...



Thanks for a happy few hours, you two!

* Sundary is Sugarcane's "adopted daughter." As an adoptive online daddy myself -- having been adopted by the wonderful Whatsername -- I can relate to that.

** You'll have to read her journal....

Yes! "I'm a fuckin' midget" Lol, yes it was fun- and we just made the sunset, just barely! Lol. Coffee was fun, and i'm going nuts trying to figure out what I was totally oblivious to by the way. . .

Sundary -- maybe if you were a bit taller, it wouldn't have zoomed right over your beautiful little head.... :-P

Maybe if I say it enough I'll believe it.
You're a pal, so I am happy for you. That's cool that you were able to meet and have a fine time with such great company.

John -- The numbers would've been just right if you could have joined us. The ladies might have had a better time, too.

No need to be jealous. It happens all too seldom. But I'm grateful that I'm 3-for-3 on actual meetings, and 3-for-4 on closer online friendships.

It was so good to meet you. I think we could have sat another three hours and had a perfectly delightful conversation.

Oh, and it's too bad you couldn't join us for the sunset. We drank champagne out of a Jack-in-the-Box cup... it was very classy.

MrScribbler said...

Damn, Suger -- and here was me thinking I needed to get back to work!

Didn't go for the ginger-ale bottles, eh?
