Introducing... My Much Cooler Friends!

I need to start off this post by saying that I am very content. (just put aside the Extreme Home Jealousy Issue of 2011) I have my little family in my little house with my nice family all around me. I go to my nice church and my nice job. I have very minimal drama. Now with that being said....I also have minimal excitement, minimal adventure and minimal, as stated before, minimal drama (a little drama can be a good thing). Thanks to Facebook and Myspace I can now live vicariously through my much cooler friends who are living much more exciting lives than me! I am going to introduce you to a few (just because I think it makes me seem so much cooler that I know these people)

First of all let me bring you back to my senior year in high school...there was this kid, who was younger than I was...called himself Patooty for some reason. Always hyper...always talking. He was that annoying kid that was endearing and you couldn't help but like him. Well Patooty grew up and found a passion in helping orphans. His website tells the story much more beautifully than I could AND they sell some gorgeous jewelry that helps orphans like this...

Go check it out! You will feel inspired and see some awesome jewelry to boot. (and don't you think I am so much cooler by knowing a person who is passionate about orphans and making the world a better place? It's like my own Brad and Angelina)

I also have a super cool friend who loves me even though I am not super cool like her! Jil has a Production Company (Bella Vita Creative Inc, even the name is cool) on 32nd street between Madison Ave and 5th Ave. (I am a much cooler person just knowing where that is) I love looking at her website and seeing the words executive producer by her name! I also like to watch the videos and try to spot the things that I have seen on TV. Go check it out because it is very cool...just like her (and me). Here is a picture of the flowers she sent me for my birthday...

Now compare that picture of my office to a picture of her office...
Can you spot the difference?

And speaking of Jil...even though I am not technically "friends" with this guy anymore (we will always have myspace) and I don't really know how I feel about the whole invasion of privacy issues and etc of his chosen livelihood at this point...Brett will always be the only marine with highlights I will ever know. I will never forget hanging out with Jil and heading over to Hilton Head and leaving him $100.00 tip. Good times, Good times. And lets face it...this has got to be my seven degrees of separation from Kevin Bacon so I cannot count it out on my living vicariously list...
I mean come on...look at the size of that lens! Brett if ya ever read this- don't speed down I95. You never know who is going to pull you over! LOL! If anybody else reading this (and why you are at this point is beyond me) wants details just ask. I'll tell you!

I also have this friend named Chris, who I knew would have a much cooler life than me even when we were in high school. Check out what he and his friends did in HIGH SCHOOL... Excuse me did I even know what the internet was in high school? Um no. I knew what the paint program was. Anyway my friend Chris does something or other with some kind of agency and he gets to travel all over the world and live all over the world (and by the way I have been out of the country exactly one time and that was for an hour and I went to Canada to eat a hot dog, french fries and cheese curds) and do things like snorkel and go in hot air balloons and go to the Olympics and presidential inaugurations. He speaks about 182 (or 12) languages, including Mandarin and takes pictures like this just any old day of the week...

So all in all I feel pretty unworldly compared to him. What can I say...those cheese curds made me a world traveler. I truly live vicariously through this guy.

Now I have TONS of other cool friends. I could post all day about them cause I love love love them all but who really wants to read a post that long? I will do a second edition cool friends list soon.

I would love to hear all about your super cool friends too! (or your seven degree separation from Kevin Bacon)
