These Friends Are, New Friends Are Golden

Take a look at these gals, they look like super fun people to hang out with, right? THEY ARE!

And I'm lucky enough that I get to go see M, the one in the middle, this weekend. We are gearing up for a girl's weekend of yoga, rock climbing and much needed catching up. M pulled me out of my shell first semester in Grad School and I am so glad she did because I ended up making one of my best friends. (Oh, and A on the left there is pretty damn cool too, but she still lives in the same state as me.)

So hopefully I'll have some pictures to post once I get back. Aaron and I went to Santa Fe a week ago and I still haven't done anything with those pictures. For now, you can imagine us eating great Mexican food and strolling about the plaza.

Just Another Reason to Like Neil Patrick Harris

I have no idea why I was thinking about this the other day, maybe it had something to do with watching the beginning of Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle. But if you're roughly my age (mid-twenties), there was a show so ahead of its time.

It was Doogie Howser, M.D. Ignore the whole child prodigy doctor bit and think about the ending of each episode. Doogie sat down at his computer each evening and composed his thoughts. I doubt they were "published" per se, but doesn't that make him the original blogger? And that was back in 1989! Those producers were on to something, but I bet they never imagined that within 15 years or so, millions would sit down to do the same on a regular basis. And some would even make money off it. I'd say they have Doogie to thank!
