Internet Friends

Forget about the school bus or sororities...It occurred to me today that I have really made a load of great friends over the internet. I don't mean sleazy chat room friends, but real, bug for advice, share resources, vent about life sort of friends--many of whom I've never even met. Not to sound like a four year old, but how cool is that!? The internet has become such a major part of all of our lives, its hard to remember what things were like before it. I use the internet to buy presents, purchase movie tickets, check the weather, communicate with everyone, read gossip/news/blogs/forums, pay all of my bills, go grocery shopping, order supplies for my business, find manufacturers, check interest rates, learn how to train my dog, send ecards and about a thousand other things I can't think of at this moment.

Anyway, this post is about internet friends, so here is a short list of some of mine. There isn't a one in the bunch who is not insanely talented, super sweet, achingly funny, generously helpful or a combination of all of the above (in no particular order):

Noisy Dog Studio
Anna Bella Baby
Turtle Papers
Shades of Violet
Pink Loves Brown
Fashion Flair Cards
Cat Seto
Claudine Hellmuth
Kenzie Kate
Wedding Bee
Retro Pet
Polka Dot Mittens
i *heart* paper
Tobi Wood Designs
Indigo Hand Loom
Very Commerce
Anne Maa
Oh Joy!
Just My Cup of Tea
Very Meri

On a sidenote, has anyone seen the new Nelly Furtado video? Man, is it HOT (i would use double caps here if possible). For some reason it got tivo'd and I swear I just watched it 11 times...and now I think I need a shower. And did anyone else catch the Justin Timberlake cameos at the end? I heart me some Nelly--she's just about the most beautiful woman I've ever seen.
