Its amazing to me just how small the world can seem sometimes..even the vast cyber world. Point in case..and I've left a comment on his journal..but wolfieboy. I followed links to his journal, and discovered through various means (Okay, really, catbus and Norwescon gave it away) that I know him personally, and have often given him hugs. I won't say that I know him real well, because I probably don't..but I do know him. Oddly enough....I found him through a journal of someone else I know a little bit. Okay, well hardly at all, but he's someone I recognize, whom I doubt would even remember me. We've exchanged names in passing...if that....and I don't even remember how I discovered his journal...just that, when I did, his name rang a bell, and when I looked at his picture, I recognized him.
Wolfieboy though, should probably recognize me by name, if he really looks. Its altered a bit, but close enough to what I use :) This place of cyber existance never fails to amaze me...

You want to talk about a small cyber-world:
I met l2g on a BBS (back before the 'net!) many years ago. We talked on the phone but never met. I went off and got married and lost touch with him.
Six months after my divorce (six years later), I was searching ICQ for some friends' IDs because I'd lost my contact list... searching Seattle, male, 30-35, and what do you know - there was the user ID of this guy I used to talk to on the BBSs... so I msged him... and he remembered me... and I told him I was moving to Colorado in 2 weeks and he said can we get together for coffee... that was Jan of 2000... and in October we bought a house together. =)

LOL...how cool! I met my man on the vast cyber world too....he drove 2 hours in the rain on his Harely to come see me. I knew then he was a keeper ;)

I knew Larry was a keeper he drove over the I-90 bridge with waves so tall they were dousing his windshield with water, and then, when we were sitting at the table at the coffee house, and we'd been talking for hours and I finally worked up the nerve to ask if he'd like to maybe see a movie or something, and he whipped out his Visor and had the movie schedule loaded up in it...

You don't talk about your man in your journal much. Or if you do, I just don't realise who he is.

Tyr...I go in spurts. He's away in Korea at the moment, so unfortunately I just don't have much to talk about him anymore. LordTyr is his username. 2 months down...10 to go.....

Wow, that sucks. I'm sorry. Is he military, then?

I know someone else who is in Korea for a year. Just left in March.

He left in February...February 13th to be exact. *sigh*

Did you go to Norwescon? My roommates went and I passed on going.

I didn't actually....

Ahh, Well I'm regretting not going now.

Yes, I did recognize the name. Hi! I keep being amazed at the number of people that I know on here.
I'll be at the club tonight...

Re: Yep.
As you've probably noted....I won't be. I have company :) Have fun!
