I’m sure you all have friends. If your lucky, you might be able to count on one hand the amount of REAL friends you have. I have ONE

w00tstock is BETTER with FRIENDS!
that’s extra special to me. I’m sure you know the kind of friend I’m talking about. This is the friend that let’s you rant on the phone even when you are totally in the wrong..this is the kind of friend that you know SO well, that you seem to call each other at the same time. He’s also the kind of guy you can drink a beer with and cry in it later…he doesn’t care, hell, he’ll even pour you another one! Friends like that are hard to come by.
If you don’t know this kind of friend I feel sorry for you.
I met my friend in College over 20 years ago, we have both had a couple of live in girlfriends, a couple of GREAT jobs, a couple of not so great jobs, and then even WORSE live in girlfriends, but we’re still best friends.
Our paths took a couple of different ways over the past few years, we have both grown, gotten a little older, hopefully a little wiser. I’m going to get to see my friend in a couple of days. It’s been a few years, and while things have changed in some ways, a little more grey here, a little more paunch there, I’m really looking forward to seeing my Budskie. We are both pretty imperfect, but that’s just how it is sometimes.
I’m going to W00tStock in San Diego California on Thursday, covering it and the madness of Comic-Con for my “NeverHood Show”, and it REALLY seems like my trip could not be any better. I’m happy, I’m healthy, I get to introduce my friend to my Fiance’, and we all get to attend this venue we have been looking forward to all summer long.
And my Budskie’s going to be a part of it!
All bullshit aside, if YOU have a “Budskie”…call ’em up, say hello. Life is a lot better when you share it with others.
And even MORE fun to share it with your Budskie!
