You’ve Got a Friend

I like to make lists. I’m patently unorganized, and making lists gives me the illusion that I really AM organized. I recently discovered goodreads.com which helps satisfy my urge to list all the books I read. The site also is meant to help it’s members network with book loving friends, so I thought it sounded fun. I signed up (it’s free) and immediately had exactly 0 friends. So I told Jo about it, and then she joined and I then had 1 friend. Of course Jo immediately garnered 9 or 10 friends. She invited my sister, Stephanie, to join, who did and pretty quickly was up to 7 friends, so then I jumped up to 2 friends.

As I write this, Stephanie has her 7 friends, Jo has 13 friends, and I still have 2. I love my two friends. I would do anything in the world for them, after all, there are only 2 of them. I would make something by hand for them. Or bake something yummy for them. Or chat on the phone in a pleasant manner with them. Or take a trip with them and let them have the window seat. I’m nice like that. To my friends. My 2 friends.

I’d love to have more friends, of course. Who wouldn’t? For instance, I’d love for Stacie, Marianne, Sheldon, Connie, Holly, Lynnette, Rosie, Matt, Jennie, Myrna, Scott, Ross and Leone (even audio books count!), and you too, if you like to read, to be my friends in the goodreads network. Chances are, I’ll still have 2 friends a month from now. But a girl can dream, can’t she?

So here’s to lists, and books, and friends. I hope to have lots of all three someday.
