A little over 3 years ago, my friend Blarney and I had this conversation:
Blarney: You’re funny. You can write and use the serial comma. And crazy stuff happens to you. You should start a blog.
Thoughtsy: What’s a blog?
Shortly after, Thoughts Appear was born.
When I met Blarney almost 5 years ago, despite her West Coastness and my East Coastness, we immediately hit it off.
Blarney: Hi! I’m Blarney. Nice to meet you!
Thoughtsy: I like you. You’re cool. I’m gonna make you my best friend!
Blarney: Uh…. Lucky for you, I like clingy.
Blarney and I discovered we had a lot in common, and we embarked on many adventures together. Some of which, I blogged about.
She saved me from drunk guys hitting on me.
- We were roomies.
- I introduced her to Empire Records.
- We went to Hawaii (not really) and New Orleans (really).
- We became groupies for the Old 97s and Eytan and the Embassy.
- She let me borrow her dog Murphy for bean bag fluffing.
But in a couple days, Blarney is leaving. She’s moving back to the West Coast. And to make matters worse, my West Coast brother was home for a visit, and he leaves the day before Blarney leaves.
WHY IS EVERYONE ABANDONING ME?!
Someone needs to invent Pop-Tart-flavored ice cream ASAP. This is an emergency, people!
