Making friends...

Moving back to Oregon was wonderful - except for the fact that I had a very small social circle. My dearest friend Kourtney is here and we've been the best people we know for 12 years. And just recently Eric D. Snider moved here so that makes two whole people that are my friends locally. Sad. I know.

But this summer I took the job at the summer camp and I made a whole new group of friends...most of whom live in the area! I've been to the beach, and a bar, and today I got pedicures with two of them. And these pedicures are the best Portland has to offer - which is saying a lot! Of course there was the usual soaking and exfoliating - but there was also a hydrating mask and all kinds of oils and herbal treatments, not to mention the massaging. The pedicure lasted an hour and fifteen minutes. HEAVEN. But I do feel bad for the one lady that was there by herself...because if she was wanting serenity - she was sure out of luck today. We laughed and gossiped and it was so much fun. It did make me miss all my LD ladies but it was such a nice way to end the day. Not that I'd had a rough day. Today I went to the zoo for my acting class. We all took a field trip to study animal movements and characteristics. So, yeah - I went to the zoo and got a pedicure...and went out to dinner for almost 3 hours. I'm really enjoying grad school.

So, maybe I want your life and stuff. I could be that scary woman in every Lifetime: television for Women story who takes over your identity and endears themselves to your family and loved ones. Hey, your Mom, brother and Aunts already like me! Better watch out!

I am just sad you have other friends. Why can't you just pine for me forever? See you in a month, HO.

Did you go to the Aveda Dosha salon by any chance? Ahh...pedicure heaven!

Of Course! Is there any other place to go? It was so lovely - the best part was watching the rest of the world go by from our second story view.

I miss sharing my pedicures with you. I am sorry your circle of friends is small but it's not quantity it's quality.....
1 1/2 Pedicure... there IS a god!
