We got to meet an internet friend for the first time, hanging out at Disneyland yesterday. It’s awesome to live in a day and age where you can connect with someone that lives hundreds of miles away and kindle a friendship before you’ve ever seen them face to face. There’s something about the ability to express yourself online that makes this whole process easier and faster. Posting pictures, videos or works of art are huge insights into a person and a great way to make a connection. Within a few hours of meeting face to face we were already singing princess songs in the most manly way imaginable. Later in the evening we enjoyed what must have been a three hour conversation over dinner at Cafe Orleans, which brought us to Fantasmic!, which of course we quoted to each other for the bulk of the show. By the end of the evening I was even persuaded to ride the Tower of Terror, which if you have read previous posts on this, I have not been a fan of. You know, the whole dropping thing. Yeah… I got over that and had a blast, thanks in part to a great new friend.
