Yesterday was the best day!

United States
March 3, 2009 11:54am CST
I met a new MyLot friend on Skype. And not only is he delightful, funny, smart, a good conversationalist, he's also friggin gorgeous! Sheesh! I've gotta say, at times, it was hard to keep my mind where it ought to be! And I'm so honored too, as I'm the only MyLot friend he's spoken to! Many of you already know that p1key and I speak almost every day of the week, and that's a balm for my soul, lemme tell ya. I'd be lost if I couldn't talk with him like I do. He's definitely one of my very best friends, always supportive, always makes me laugh, and delights my soul. And yesterday, when I spoke to this new friend, I was just competely tickled about the whole thing. I had a blast! And what's really, really amazing is that he's 8 hours ahead of me, and a million miles away, and there he was, right there in my computer room, right there on my screen, and it was like he was in the same room with me. Wow, technology just blows me away! I'm so happy that we talked! What I'd like to know is this: why haven't I spoken to more of you on Skype? And if you have a webcam with a microphone, have YOU spoken to anyone you know here on the Lot? Was it by phone? Was it on Skype? Were you completely self-conscious the first time you did it? Boy, I was! I could barely look at the camera! But I got over it soon enough, and now, it's nothin. Easy-peasy. If any of my friends out there in the Land of Lot would like to speak, let me know, please. It's really the "funnest" thing to do! So, tell me. Anyone?

I really must try that one day Nova. I would be so self-conscious, especially with you. We've not really spoken have we. I guess that we would find something to talk about if we tried hard enough! LOL.

Yeah, you really must, p1key. Do you really think we might find something to talk about though? I dunno, we have so little in common.......................

I don't talk to people from here, outside here. Seriously, you are all just faceless, nameless, somethings that pop up on my computer screen everyday. OMG! Nova, I am jealous! Isn't he too cute!?

Yeah, right, nameless and faceless. That's why you're so damn intuitive in your renditions of us in your avatar art. Uh huh. And yes, he's a complete doll!!!!!! Damn, he's gorgeous! And funny. And smart. And wonderful, yup, just wonderful. I'd be jealous too, trust me! What a doll.... So why haven't YOU gotten Skype yet, woman? Get a webcam with a mike built in - they're quite inexpensive,really, Bo. And then you can talk to Irish and myself, and p1key and anyone else you want to. Do it, just do it!!!! And as I said to Irish, PLEASE!!!!!! xxxx

Because I hate being on camera, that's why! I have a webcam, somewhere. Can you do more than two people on one call? Now, that I MIGHT do. That way I could just sit back and watch all you guys. *L* How fun would that be?

This is such a freaky coincidence Nova, 'cos I had the exact same thing happen to me yesterday! I chatted with this funny, witty, highly intelligent, bubbly and absolutely wonderful lady on Skype for almost 2 hours! The amazing thing about it all was that I felt an instant kinship as if we had known each other for years! I was a bit concerned throughout the chat though because there was this ladder precariously hovering in the background and I was so afraid it would fall! Thankfully it didn't fall and last I heard, it'd been moved, so I'm very relieved indeed. I enjoyed myself immensely and am very much looking forward to the next chat! The whole experience got me thinking too..... We all know of the "evils" the internet can bring, but what of all these wondrous positives like yesterday? Think about the doors technologies like these can open or people that in the past had no means to reach out to others instantly, or were sad and depressed with no-one to turn to! Now a whole new world has opened up and truly created a global village of sorts! Timeless, no distance limitations, direct and personal and even free! Think of the many people in this world that may have had their very lives changed just from the closeness the internet has been able to create! Thank you for being you Nova.

I chat with some online friends on either Yahoo Messenger or MSN Messenger. Haven't gotten into Skype yet. I do have a webcam at home and a lot of good it is doing sitting in the box. Can't use one at work. The firewall blocks them.

Get that thing out of that box, woman! Like I said to mummymo above, once you get used to it, you'll find that you'll love it as much as I do. And if I can do it, anyone can. Hey, I figured mine out all by myself, which is really saying something, considering the fact that I'm clueless about any manner of electronic-type gadgets. Do it! Come on, open up that box, get out the instructions, and get to it!!!

LOL I have spoken to a quite a few mylot friends on the phone and a special few on Skype - specially p1ke, who as you say is truly amazing and the bestest friend any of us 'lovelies' could wish for! I didn't have a webcam though so I could see friends but they couldn't see me, which is quite good as I hate cameras! lol I do have an integrated webcam on my new laptop but i am not usre how to use it and I think I would be struck dumb if I tried to - just that fear of camera thingy! lol Hugs xxxxx

Well then, missy, you'd better get out the instruction booklet and figure it out!!! I'd love to be able to see and speak with you!! You and me and p1key could have a three-way! heh, heh That would be a wonderful thing! And you won't be struck dumb either, trust me. You'll get over your fear, just like I did. Ask p1key - I was soooo self-conscious the first time we spoke, it was crazy! But I got over it and when I talked with James, it was like we already knew each other, just the most delightful thing. Trust me, once you get used to it, you'll love it as much as I do. Honest. Hugs back to you too, darling. xxxxx

I love Skyp my darling nova - it is just being in front of the camera - I feel so sick at the thought of it - I think that is why I deliberately can't figure out the webcam! lol xxx

Hey that is great Nova, I would never have the guts to do that. I would feel to self conscious about talking to someone like that. I don't have Skype anyhow though. I have heard it is great but never have tried it. Well, Good luck and I hope you get to know alot more mylotians..

Whoah, I did that about 10years ago, where've you been? hehehe.. Anyways, I have great friends in yahoo. We originally met there, we are 6 all in all in different countries and different time zones. It was amazing because we'd set time for all of us to meet online at once, we'd go for conferences where we'd use voice, it's amazing because we'd all laugh because we don't understand each other anymore with everyone grabbing the mic all at once! It's was great and though we're no longer at it that much, we still do meet up once in a while just to chitchat, we've been friends for 10years now, and we're trying to set up a day to meet in real, whew! it proves to be tough though, having to meet up from different countries in one place. But sure we'll make it work! Good luck to you. Seems as if you're in love with your buddy. You can't deny it though, it's written all over your post!

Do it Dawnald! It's really great fun. I should know. But truthfully, the only one I really ever talk to with any regularity at all is p1key. We talk pretty much every day of the week and it brightens my days immeasurably. I so cherish our talks. We speak of everything under the sun, what's gone on in our day, what's coming up in our lives, our woes, our wishes, and several good laughs. And yes, we also talk about the people here in the Lot. He's here more than I am and he keeps me updated on what's going on. We've been talking now for about a year. Wow, how time flies, yes? BUt seriously, get that cam out of the box and GO FOR IT, GIRL!

Sorry, my dear, I only have dialup, no webcam, no microphone, so it does't look like Skype is gonna happen for me anytime soon. I wish Bell would get us high speed out here. The gov't has a rural broadband internet grant they are giving to every County, so we might get Wireless High Speed. My rep at the Township tells me if anything was going to come of it, we will find out by June/July of this year. If not, I may just take the leap to Satellite, we'll see. If I do, YOU and P1key will be the first 2 on my list to skype with, promise. Plus, I just bought my daughter a brand new laptop and inherited the desktop model that I bought her as a present for getting into University. It is way better than my current computer with a lovely LCD Flat screen which I am looking forward to switching to. I got her computer delivered here a couple of days ago, but she forgot to send along the flash drive (that I lent her) for me to transfer all my files from one to the other. So, it looks like next week before I may be able to transition computers, even. I'll have a look at it when I get it switched and see if it is any faster than my current one for Skype. Or can you even do it with dialup? OH, and as I was reading on the first page, your bantering with Bo in her response and I have one word that I feel describes you perfectly.....VIVACIOUS! That is what I see in you. Sexy, curvy and womanly like Marilyn Monroe. And I think Marilyn Monroe was the most beatiful of all. But not just in the physical sense. It is in your personality as well. You OOZE beauty! And I love ya! SO THERE!
