“Xanga friends” doesn’t really explain it

The girls

He and I spent the weekend in Chicago with the "xanga friends".  I met these awesome women when I was introduced to Xanga in 2007… was the person who put us all in contact with each other… and http://www.nobrain-noheadache.com.  We decided to finally meet up together in 2009 in Chicago at embee-kay's (MB)'s home.  It was fun and we all liked each other in person with no keyboard in front of us.  Interestingly enough in under the small world theme,  thelpme (Tracy) had business in Newton, Iowa so we got together 2 or 3 times when she was here on business.  Nobrain-noheadache (Erin) is Tracy's sister and I believe my sister from different parents…also known as the outcasts for our love of Y & R, the Housewives and Oprah…anyway…we met in Chicago again in 2012..it was even more fun..so we brought the men this time…while we didn't have as much good girl talk – we had a wonderful time.  Craig and MB are wonderful hosts….they introduced us to the game of Petanque.
Here is our Tracy…representing the women

Chicago 1

Back to the Xanga friends title…while Xanga is the engine that brought us together, it does not explain the bond we have with each other.  As I explained to him on the way to Chicago, the 4 of us have an incredible connection – we know what is going on in each other's lives nearly everyday.  It's hard to believe that people who have only seen each other face to face 3 times in 6 years could be kindred spirits.

Oh…and in Chicago I lost my IKEA virginity…I've now been there and can use my old lady judgmental voice to say….Oh, really, you've never been there hmph…

Oh…and while we were in Chicago, Devil Dog at the basement door…

Until next time….

  1. I have been fortunate enough to meet a few of my Xanga friends in person. One just happens to live in the next town and oddly enough, and unknown to both us gals, her husband and mine know each other from a weekly poker game at the home of my daughter’s friend’s dad! Anyway, it looks like you all had a wonderful time at MB’s house-she’s a pretty awesome gal!!
