she is one of my favorite people. she is creative, clever and cooler than she thinks. she likes a lot of what i like. she sends me great links and enjoys the few i send her that she hasn't already seen. we've seen each other in person a grand total of 5 or 6 times in our approximately 5 year friendship, yet i talk to her more than most people i see on a weekly (if not daily) basis. we work together, we type together, we laugh together - we have probably even cried together.
