SOME SPEED WITH A DASH OF ANTICIPATION

I like going fast. I like driving fast (at least, faster than I should, though I don't like going TOO fast, because that triggers my control issues) and I like working fast.

I read fast.
I type fast.
I eat fast. (which I'm told is not a good thing)
I respond quickly in conversations with snappy comebacks.
I make snap judgements sometimes.

I don't live in the fast lane, though. And I have never fasted in my life, though I understand it can be quite cleansing.

I have no idea why I wrote all of that. It just came out. Quite quickly.

Tomorrow after work we are driving north 2.5 hours to meet 2 internet ladies who have been inspiring me since I first "met" them. I feel like a big geeky stalker. I feel like Cinderella getting to go to the ball (only my real prince is home in Sweden). I hope they like me. I hope they don't think I'm a big dork, even if I AM a big dork. I hope I don't laugh at inappropriate moments. I hope they don't think it's weird that I don't drink coffee or wine. Not that I really care if they do, since I really don't care what people think of my habits or opinions, but I feel all twittery with anticipation, and I can't wait! I wonder if they feel the same way, too. :)

And I get to meet Henry and Ollie and Daisy, too, so WOO HOO!

Today, the sun came out, though I didn't see much of it since I'm borrowing someone's cubicle and it's not close to a window. I'd forgotten what working in cubes is like, it's been so long. It's different than the open landscaping I've been stuck in, in Sweden. If I had to choose between the two, I'd pick cubes over open landscaping any day, but O! How I miss my own office.
