I'm the girl on the other Platform: We might actually Meet!


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.

*Just Breathe*

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. =)

Melanie, I can feel it...this is really going to be good. I'm not psychic or anything, but I can feel that everything is going to be ok. I was waiting for Mr Platform's comeback and this is a really opportune time.

Wear a skirt, look good, smile and let everything take its course.

I like what you said about the piece of you being picked up and put back into place. I feel the same way with my friends. We're all each other's repair men.
I usually pray for snow on the West Coast for my local ski resorts... but I think I'll make an exception for this week and pray that it won't snow for you on the East Coast!

DesBisoux said...

i'm so thrilled for you!!! i can't wait to hear about it!
for the outfit i'd say something that is you and make you feel pretty. duh!! thank you captain Obvious...

Scientific Housewife said...

That's why I prefer You've Got Mail to Sleepless in Seattle. There is more romance and it's just a better movie :)

Beth Dunn said...

OK I'm totally excited for you! Have fun. Just wear something that makes you look your best (cut and color) and smile. It will all work out. xoxo

Keagan said...

I'd say go with the skirt...and have fun! Don't bee too nervous, just relax and enjoy the party. But if you are nervous, cocktails can help with that...

Keith said...

Wow. I think that sounds really cool. I hope you have a fantastic time. It's great that you guys are finally meeting.

Badass Geek said...

I'm sure you'll have a great time. Be sure to tell us about it afterwards!

Ice Queen said...

Definitely wear red and black. You can never go wrong with black and I'm sure it will look totally hot. Good luck and have a great time!

woodlandsblonde said...

I think you'll be okay :) I'm not sure if you're attracted to this guy...but the color that gets a man's attention is red. It's the first thing their eyes catch. I'm sure you'll be fine!

Good luck with the meeting...glad there will be other people around (you never know...)

Melanie's Randomness said...

if it doesn't snow, this Saturday night. Please don't snow, please don't snow!!

Jennifer Fabulous said...

I am so excited for you!! This meeting couldn't have happened at a more perfect time. The holiday season makes the atmosphere a little more magical and you're finally meeting a new friend after being treated poorly by an old one. It's all coming together for you and I'm so happy. :)
I would go with a skirt. After all, if you meet again, chances are, you will be dressed casually. The party is your excuse to dress a little more formal. Hehe. I really hope you take a picture of yourself the night of the party!
Good luck! And I am definitely going to cross my fingers that the weather cooperates.

MelRoXx said...

good luck with it! x

Andaje said...

Best of luck :o) And he already knows what you look like - about the ticket...hmmm couldnt you make some kind of pin or brooch/broach out of one... he would get the idea

jayne said...

good luck! though I doubt you'll need it, this sounds like its meant to be!

Pink Flower said...

Ooo i'm sure it will go grand! Good luck!

Little Ms Blogger said...

How fun and exciting!

What a great way to end and start a year.

About the over planning in my mind, I do that all the time, I'm a Virgo, that's what we do.

Celia said...

What a sweet story! That would be cool to finally meet. I think I saw an ABC family movie like that once too. I have a few random occurences like that, even internationally where people knew me. It's almost like 3 degrees of seperation now. I so watched the Hippo clip- you will never believe I've been singing that song to my boyfriend for the past few days, and thought about blogging about it, before I saw your comment. So cute!!

xoxo

Jennifer said...

Hope you have/had an awesome time! :D

Pixel Wild Child said...

That sounds really interesting and very promising, you already know a lot from each other, that's a nice advantage that creates some nice tension, doesn't it? Enjoy it!!! ;O)

Bathwater said...

I say wear something hot. He already probably adores at least half of you (your personality). Or is it the suggestive writing you keep doing..again I swear I don't see it on any other blogs.

I can only imagine what conversations with you are like :).

Kate said...

I need to know how it went! Crossing everything for you albeit belatedly.

Oh I hope meeting him goes well, I am sure that it will! Just be yourself and that is the person he likes anyway. I can't wait to hear all about it! yay!

Barry said...

I tend to run through every possible scenario too. And then what actually happens is the one thing you didn't think of/expect.

I love the way this has all unfolded so far, it would make a great 'how we met' story. But one step at a time right? Can't wait to see what happens!

(Oh, and definitely the skirt. You can never look too feminine!)

Blondie said...

Hey Mel,
I was going to ask you about this a couple of times now, but thought maybe I was missing something. Good luck sweetie. I have a great feeling about this!

Thanks for visiting today and commenting on my Public Enemies post. I always love seeing you stopped by! Kori xoxo
