A week or so ago I mentioned a lil story about how I never actually meet a good friend of mine, yet we've talked online for years & he has seen me once across from him on a Train platform. It's kinda like the movie, "Sleepless in Seattle" a lil bit. I knew of him & he knew of me but alas something always happened & we never met. However unlike Meg Ryan I'm not going to fly across country to meet him. I'm just going to drive about an hour or so. lol.
My Myspace friend of 4 years is having a holiday cocktail party this upcoming Saturday. He had left me an invitation on facebook about a week ago. To my unluck, I don't check my facebook for personal reasons, I didn't get the invitation. BUT to my omg luck, to ensure I knew about the party he contacted me to let me know the details. Whew...I'm so happy he instant messaged me about it. I would have felt like a total jerk if I had found it later not realizing.
I almost wish I was going down on a train so I could see if he'd recognize me without the ticket behind my ear. That's the only time he ever saw me in person besides pictures and I didn't see him at all across the platform. In the New Brunswick, NJ train station there's usually alot of people there & I had no idea he was there. I still can't believe he saw me & knew it was me. Weird huh?
Didn't Tom Hanks see Meg Ryan when she went to Seattle but then she didn't say anything & it was just an awkward moment between them? It's been a while since they've played it on TV.
So...I'm nervous to meet one of my friends that I've told a good portion of the juicy stuff about my life for 4 years as well as he has told me. There will be tons of people at his house so I wonder if I will even get to talk to him at all? I mean he's the host. What do I wear??? I have a red, blue, & white skirt & alot of black sweaters....hmmmm...should I wear a skirt or jeans?? Uhh...I think a skirt. I want to look nice. Even though I know him, he's still a new person in my life & I would love to make a good first impression.
Okay I got a week to go over every possible scenario in my head of how it's going to go. I do that. I run things over & over til I try to find something that fits best. Trial & Error. Rinse then Repeat. I just hope it doesn't snow. PLEASE DON"T SNOW!! It's one of his New Year's Resolution of this year to meet me too. I can't let him down.
It's odd how people disappear from my life, & then I may meet someone who may fill that hurtful gap. If my platform friend can pick up a lil piece of me & put it back where it belongs I'd be ever so grateful. I'm grateful for all you bloggers (aka...friends) for putting me back together too.
Well this part of the movie is where the lead girl is singing at the top of her lungs, "Your so Vain" by Carly Simon in karaoke or "Total Eclipse of Heart" by Bonnie Tyler & is trying to forget & making some changes that have to be made. This is going to be good, I hope. =)
