Right up front, here are the 2 reasons for this post:
1) I see that I haven't posted in a week and I am feeling the pressure.
2) To totally freak my family out.
I was, of course, invited to spend Thanksgiving with Spencer and Chrissy. They, however, are going to Chrissy's aunt's house and spending the day with a bunch of people I don't know. I'm sure they're all very nice (lies. I'm not at all sure of that. How could I be? I don't know them), but...I was pretty neutral about this whole deal. Spencer and Chrissy - I heart you guys in mad ways. Thanksgiving is just not that big of a deal to me, and I was kind of meh about the plans.
So. My friend Kaitlin was all, "COME HAVE THANKSGIVING WITH ME AND MY FRIENDS IN PORTLAND!!!" (She asked over chat but, you guys, I'm POSITIVE she was sitting in front of her computer screaming it at me, hence the CAPS.)
After dithering over it for about a day, I remembered that I actually like to do stuff and I booked a seat on Amtrak.
Family, right now you are saying, "What's so freaky about that? You are a total amateur at freakishness."
But, family, I am about to blow your minds. Kaitlin is an online friend. I have never met her OR her friends. I AM GOING TO PORTLAND TO SPEND 2 DAYS WITH SOMEONE I HAVE ONLY COMMUNICATED WITH THROUGH ONLINE CHATTING AND TEXT MESSAGES.
HAHAHAHAHAHAHA! I am laughing at your horror.
It's okay - she's video chatted with one of our mutual friends, so I know she's real. Or a life-like puppet made by an extremely methodical serial killer.
See you all later.
