today i had lunch with the woman i consider my mom. she didn’t raise me. she didn’t birth me. she is far too young to be my mom. but i still think of her that way, much as i considered vivian eastman my mom. face to facebook friend #34 suzanne timble and i talked about my tallahassee trip and some things going on in her life and we were so engrossed that i didn’t even remember to take out the camera.
but. . . .
laura michaels from the winnetka currents newspaper came to the house to interview me about the face to facebook project. i explained that my new years resolution is to meet every single one of my facebook friends and get to know them a little better. then we made a startling discovery: i’m actually friends with the winnetka current newspaper. how can you have a satisfying and meaningful friendship with a newspaper? can you ask it to lunch? can you get its opinion on that no good low down boyfriend of yours?
then i decided to go all barbara walters on laura michaels, who is all i’ve seen besides newsprint of f2fb friend #35 and she has some really interesting things to tell us about, including how to stay out of that police blotter!
tomorrow, i’m just like willie nelson. .. . on the road again! for an agoraphobic i sure do get around! i would love a day in bed with a “migraine” and hulu.com but instead. . ..
