Yesterday for lunch, a coworker friend and I walked to a deli close by, picked up some food and walked to this spot. Then we spread a blanket and had a nice picnic lunch. It was a gorgeous day.
We talked and talked. We talked about all kinds of stuff. But mostly techie stuff. Blogs, websites, twitter, facebook, tiny url, Content Management Systems etc... etc... We shared ideas and gave each other cool tips. And did what most girl friends do. Gave each other moral support and encouragement.
What baffles me is this. Why is it that my girl friends don't see in them what I see in them? Why don't women recognize their own potential? To be honest, I am the worst example of this. If someone says nice photo, I brush them off. They were just being nice to me. Or even polite. I actually gave up photography for years because I felt that I just wasn't good enough.
Sometimes I don't care. If Mythos looks at my beautiful Sand and Foam photo and comments, "was that halocegenic oatmeal?" I just laugh and send him a nasty email. "Get some new glasses will you?" And then I laugh some more.
And that was my 300th post. Yeah!
