I {Heart} Technology

I have been on facebook for a few months now and most of my friends on it are people I see on a regular basis. This morning I was on it and I decided to look up a friend that I haven't seen for about 5-7 years. I don't even know the last time I saw her. She lives in Australia and her name is Tennille. I lost contact with her. I didn't even have a valid e-mail address for her anymore. I searched her on facebook and it came up with 3 possibilities. One of them looked like it might be her so I sent her a message. Later on tonight I checked my e-mail and I had an e-mail from facebook that confirmed Tennille as a friend. So I went on to facebook to view her profile. While on she got on too. She Instant messaged me and we messaged each other back and forth for about 1/2 hour-45 minutes. It was so cool!!! I couldn't believe that I was talking to someone that I hadn't talked to in years and that I found her through technology. She is now married and has 2 kids and one on the way. While it was 6:00 at night here it was 10:00 in the morning in Australia. It is sure fun to find a long lost friend. It made my day!!!

Technology DOES rock!
I just found one of my college boyfriends that I haven't seen in freakin' ages. It was kinda like total and complete closure.
