First time for everything

This is going to sound strange, however I have never done this before. For the first time ever, I’m typing on my laptop in my bed, in my bedroom. Dun dun dun! Seriously, I’ve never done this before. Sure this puppy has been on the front step, in the backyard, in the library, at client’s offices, but never before has it been in my bed.

So, why, you ask?

My laptop usually stays in the office most of the time when it stays home. I actually did the ol’ shutdown thing about 15 minutes ago and got ready for bed. As I was getting ready for bed, I realized I have met a lot of very interesting people. It occurred to me that I’d like to thank them for coming into my life. But that’s so hokey and I know if I called them up, or emailed them and said that, they’d laugh at me, and wonder what I’ve been smoking. So, of course, I realize I could easily thank them here, and they’d never know I was seriously hokey! Ahh, it satisfies my urge to say thank you, without making folks feel uncomfortable. Damn, why didn’t I think of it sooner?

Here goes, and in no particular order – to the new folks I’ve met in the last 12 months who have made an impact on me.

Photo King – you’re like the little brother I never had. I can tell you stories, give you advice and, sigh, you treat me like I just gave you the most valuable information ever. No wonder I’m more than happy to give more. I’m also thrilled to bits about your latest news.

Energizer – where have you been all my life? I can’t believe I’ve only known you for maybe 6 months – it feels like decades, and I wish we could find a way to have daily chats. You always lift me.

Step Girl – I’m so excited for you! Thanks for your email – you are so cute, and it never ceases to amaze me how a little friendly email like yours can make my day.

Em + Van – So completely tickled that I met both of you, and can’t wait to see what you are both able to deliver together. Remember that power in the sum of the parts – I know you’ll rock it together.

  1. I don’t think you sound hokey at all! I think it’s very sweet of you to send out a message to those people who mean something to you. Too often we go through life never acknowledging people who have affected us until it is too late. You have chosen the wiser path. Bravo!

    Thanks Randi. I was just thinking of you. You won’t believe why…. radio was on and Myley Cyrus was singing about seeing the Hollywood sign, and I started bopping my head thinking of you! 🙂 Perhaps now I do like the song afterall since I’ve got a great association with it. – Daisy

  2. Now I’m thinking of the song! The video of her singing is kind of cute too. I watched it after I watched the kid doing sign language to it. Soon you’ll be noddin’ your head like yeah…moving your hips like yeah…

    It’s official! I’m liking the song for sure now.. it’s a cute head-bopping song and now that I’ve seen it for the first time (yeah, I’m slow that way), I too wanna nod my head like yeah, and move my hips like yeah. – Daisy

  3. I think we take people for granted all too often and taking the short time to thank someone is a great thing. Now if that makes you hokey (not a word I have heard over here) then hokey is a good thing. Keep it up!

    thanks, I’ll remember that sometimes, it’s good to be hokey – Daisy

  4. Photo King? Was that a shout out to me!
    What can I say you’ve really been a fabulous mentor to me, putting up with all my constant questions…. no matter how silly! I’m so appreciative of you sharing your creativity, business wisdom and time with me these past months.

    And now… I know you’re definitely hokey 😛

    Thanks for expanding my horizons Daisy =)

    Yeah Baby, that was a shout-out to you! 🙂 Don’t tell others just how hokey I am, though okay? Thanks for being you – Daisy
