On-Line Friendships and My Birthday Continued

I know I’ve mentioned her before, but it’s my Blog, so here I go again.

I met Mary Ann through OWOH in February of 2008. She was the winner of my OWOH giveaway, as a matter of fact. We “clicked” and are now BFF.
Could it be she lives in Ohio and I grew up in Indiana? Could it be she’s a paper freak and so am I? Could it be our sense of humor? Maybe it’s the OCD we share in common. Whatever the reasons, I know I have a friend for life that lives in the Midwest!

Well, get this . . . we have never heard each other’s voice! Nope, we’ve never even spoken to each other by telephone! It’s been an on-line friendship for a year now.

Do you think it’s time to take the relationship to another level and exchange phone numbers and have a “live” conversation?

I'm e-mailing Mary Ann, to give her my cell phone number (sure would be nice if she was a Verizon subscriber). If not, we can talk our heads off after 9pm during the week and all day long on Saturdays and Sundays.

And, not to rush things *hee hee*, but maybe one day in the future, we can go a step further and maybe actually MEET IN PERSON! Ooooooooh, now THAT would be a treat.

And speaking of treats . . . My birthday gift from Mary arrived in this vintage box. I just love old boxes!

This was the gift wrapped and packed nicely inside the vintage box

and this is the art on canvas with a fabulous Toni Morrison quote that Mary created for me. The girls in this piece depict Mary on the left and me on the right *smiles*
Cyber hugs & kisses and a big THANK YOU to my "friend of mind"!

So the question of the day to the rest of you is: Have you met anyone on-line that you have become good friends with? Have you ever spoken on the phone? Have you met in person?

Met a woman at CHA whose blog I follow. We ended up hanging out with some fellow Fiskateers and having dinner together. We're lucky like that...good friends and good fortune.

Should I point out now that when I did call and said, "This is Mary Ann!" you said, "Who?" HA HA!

Also did you notice how VERY thin our alter egos are in that collage? I like to think we are both that thin with such long legs and good hair.

Also? I just love you to bits:)

LOL!! That WAS funny! I looked at the number on my cell phone and said to myself "who the heck is this calling me at this time of night?!" Then when I answered and this voice said, "This is Mary Ann", well, I guess I could try to blame it on my recent birthday? That was just TOO funny - HA

Ooooooooooh, what a nice conversation Mary Ann and I had. We talked for HOURS! *smiles*
