I just wanted to say that friends are awesome. I talked to Heather tonight for the first time in a few months. This is after she did me a huge favor the last time I talked to her. Sometimes I don't keep up with friends as well as I should. I try though, I really do.
The other thing I realized today is that online I talk more regularly with my women friends then my male friends. Of the friends I talk to daily or so, 4 are female and only one is male. Maybe this is because I talk to the males in person more often, dunno. This is just strange for a guy who only 3 years ago had basically zero female friends. Who knew?
