I write a post like the one yesterday and I immediately get calls/IMs/emails from all over the world, literally:
"Just read the blog, what's up."
"Here if you need to talk."
"The Bean says thump, thump."
"Man, being a girl sucks sometimes."
"I'm ready to kick ass if necessary."
"Don't let The Man get you down."
"No one is cooler than you." (Fine, that one was from Emma and it was sent telepathically, shut up)
"Come hang out in Italy." (Don't think I didn't seriously consider that one)
"I disagree-- I think you really hold your own in a fight." (from Cecile, and she would know ahahaha)
"I am NEVER bitchy." (I love you, SFG)
Thanks, guys. People like you make it easier to deal.
