Circle of Friends

Y'know, this may seem strange but, any of you who read this, I feel like we're pals. So please do go ahead and friend me on FB, if you'd like. Because sometimes it feels like it's all folks I don't know and, ideally, it can actually be a good way to get to know people. Yes? No? Maybe?

I am inspired to say so because once, back when I didn't really understand how Facebook worked, I went ahead and "friended" a couple of strangers just because they were the only other folks who'd listed "The Pastels" as a musical favorite, and I sorta thought that's what one was supposed to do. Anyway, this was a few years ago now, but the other night, at the estimable Clean show at the Bell House, one of these gents approached me on the strength of our musical FB friendship, and he was utterly nifty in reality, and now I have a new sorta-friend, and none of this would have been possible without the good works of messrs Zuckerberg and Moskovitz. And in short I have a new appreciation for its benign capabiities, connectivity-wise.

And besides, I'd like to know you!

I'm glad you said it would loud, because I've entertained the thought of fbook friending you for a while, but was afraid that would be weird. I've posted on your blog maybe once, but I read regularly and feel both admiration for and kinship with you. So - now we will be fbook friends, one step away from being real friends! :)

Certainly! What is your link?

Yay! I worked up the nerve to fb friend request you ages ago - which you graciously accepted, thank you. I sent the friend request in part because I didn't think it was fair to read so much of your work (here and on jez) while not exposing anything about myself. Since I don't have a blog, all I could do was the fb route...

Thanks for sharing your stories w us, Sadie. You're the best.
