Sometimes ... you just feel blank. Unmotivated. Bleh-like.

And, sometimes ... when you feel like that ... you just have to reach out to a friend. One you haven't heard from for many weeks.

And then ... when said friend begins to chitter chatter, you suddenly begin to feel colorful once again.

You end up feeling refreshed.

Laughter bubbles its way past your lips, from your heart and gut.

You are renewed and ready to conquer the world. Okay, maybe not... but yes, you do feel so much better.

You have re-connected with a kindred soul and are reminded once again that you are not the only weirdo on the face of the planet; that there is someone else out there that "gets you" -- weird sense of humor and all; and your weirdo friend laughs at the same things you do.

Making you a weirdo too. But not a lone weirdo.

Aren't friends grand?

So, what are you waiting on? Pick up the phone and call a friend you haven't heard from in a while ... just don't use up 120+ cell phone minutes, because your loving husband might freak out a teensy weensy bit because it's the beginning of the month and the two of you share minutes. Oops!

In the mean time, while you're waiting for your dear friend to pick up the other line ... check out this cute little blog I read about in the new Hallmark magazine (what? I was waiting for a blood test and needed something to read! I actually liked it, too!)...

WAIT ... first check this out -- Xtreme Gluttoney ... and ... DON'T TRY THIS AT HOME. You might explode. Well, if your mouth was as small as his ... and you had a ginormous grape hanging out of it. It could happen!

Now, check out the rest of the blog ... Cute Overload.

You're absolutely right. I did this today - I called two people I don't talk to very often.

And that hamster is just cute! It's amazing how much they can stuff into their little cheeks. But the cutest thing is his little feet. Look at those cute toes! :-)

Oh that is soooo weird 'cause I did exactly the same thing. I just recently talked forever on the phone with someone I just couldn't love more. Let me tell you, it was just what the doctor ordered. Well, if I had a doctor which of course would only really happen if I actually had insurance. As it stands now it's just so much cheaper to stick with the family vet instead. Technically he is still a doctor though, right?
