In honor of his birthday, I'm posting this exchange I had w/ O recently--after he tripped getting onto a down escalator and almost took a dive into a pile of British toys.

Me: OMG, are you ok? I don't know what I would have done if you'd fallen.
O: I'm fine... you would have laughed.
Me: No!
O: I know you would have laughed. I would if you fell. <big grin>
<long pause>
Me: Well, it's good to have friends you can count on.

I still think he's wrong, but I felt this surge of affection when he said I would have laughed. Because it's possible that he's right, but either way, it's good to have a friend who understands that kind of thing. (And it helps to know, based on our 12 years of friendship. that he might have laughed for about 20 seconds before making sure I was ok.)

Hey there

I joined LiveJournal and Flickr today (can you tell I'm on vacation?)... plunging into the brave, not-so-new world of social networking on this Interweb thingy. My hope is to stay in touch with folks I already know and perhaps meet some new ones. 

Right now I'm kinda jetlagged--got back home (NYC) last night from a very cool 5-day London vacation. A friend and I did a lot of sightseeing, some very cool (Tate Modern, Shakespeare's Globe Theatre), some less so (London Eye, the Lord of the Rings musical). Had a nice visit with friends as well!
