This week's questions are so perfect! That's because I have a fine romance developing with Achim, the German engineer. I know, you all are tired of hearing about my Date-zillas. But this one's the real thing. Anyway, here goes this Friday's bunch...I need to reset the blog clock, cause it's almost 12:40 a.m., not 11:40. That's Friday in my book. Damn you Wee Bull, you win again! (see Weebl n Bob if you don't get that.)
1. Would you say that you're good at keeping in touch with people?
Yes, my friends are so important to me. I "talk" to Loopy almost every day via e-mail, even though I live in NJ and she lives in the Midwest. and we've been friends for how long, Loop? Since 1997, I think. Lately I've been writing and really talking live to Achim every day, because he travels a lot for work and is in Edmonton right now. I talk to my dear friend, Gail, about once a week. And to Bob (lo, Bob! He reads my blog but won't put a comment in. Chicken shit.) and Willy and Dotti and a bunch of other people that I don't see regularly but talk to/e-mail.
2. Which communication method do you usually prefer/use: e-mail, telephone, snail mail, blog comments, or meeting in person? Why?
I always prefer up close and personal. But that's not always possible, especially with my friends who live or work out of state. I'm better live, I think, and so are they. But e-mail is a close second.
3. Do you have an instant messenger program? How many? Why/why not? How often do you use it?
I have AIM, my screen name is Fiberista (if anyone wants to chat, I usually have it on in the evening when I'm working on the blog). I chat with my sister often, even though she is only 20 minutes away--saves a phone call. And I was chatting with Achim last weekend for 3 hours!!! New AIM record. I have it on every day, use it frequently.
4. Do most of your close friends live nearby or far away?
Most of them are in the NY-NJ-PA area, with the exception of Loopy and Dotti.
5. Are you an "out of sight, out of mind" person, or do you believe that "distance makes the heart grow fonder"?
Distance definitely makes the heart grow fonder!! And I never forget people, no matter near or far.
Hot Damn, The Week's Almost Over!
So I almost wrecked my car yesterday--my fault, pulled out of my parking slot at work and hit some guy. God knows where my head was at, I never saw him til the big crunchola. No serious damage to people or cars. But it took the Parsippany cops an hour to get there, so what did I do? Right. I sat in the car and knit.
This has been another busy week, with things piling up at work like flies on shit. But I've managed to keep knitting at lunch. Maybe more time to do the blog this weekend. Get hair cut on Sat. a.m., go see Mama on Sunday. Oh and go to the spine specialist tomorrow. Maybe he can do something about this herniated disk, finally. I hear traction works well. And I'm still knitting, even though my pinkie and ring finger are still numb.
