Can I just tell you....

...how much I love MySpace?

I just found one of my really, really good friends from when I lived in San Diego. I lost her # when my cell phone died a few years ago and have been searching for her ever since. She has a very common last name, so I was having no luck. Then I found a profile on MySpace. There was no pic, but it was someone with her name, her age, and lived in San Diego. So I took a chance and wrote her a message.

She responded and said she's been searching for me, too! And that she moved to NYC and comes to Boston all the time!!! She sent me her cell # and I'm going to call her this afternoon!

Yay! I love MySpace!!

Uh, excuse me?

What is it with drive by comments these days? Do you people have nothing better to do than to surf random blogs and post obnoxious, cruel stuff in the comments section?

If what I post doesn't interest you than go read someone else's blog!! Pretty simple, I think. Don't try to hurt me and make me feel self-concious about what I post here.

I'm sorry if my story about reuniting with a long lost friend isn't compelling blog material. But honestly, I don't give a care. This is my blog, my life, and I'll write about whatever I please and I refuse get bullied by drive-by comments any more.

I love your story.

Maybe remove the ability to post anonymously, so people like andy --if that IS its real name, which I doubt -- can't post anymore. Also, maybe use statcounter to find out its (don't know whether it's a boy or a girl) IP address. . .

Hugs!!

Awww, I love that story!
I've lost touch with pretty much everybody from my school days, and I sometimes wonder what it would be like to find people again.

Oh, and don't worry about trolls like andy. They leave if you don't feed them.

I'd rather read about real people than yet another cookie-cutter "Ain't I outrageous" blog.
