Little Weekend Links 13

I joined Open Diary in 2002. Over the last 12 years, I filled it with 1,765 entries and became part of one of the most supportive communities I’ve ever known to exist. I remember not long after I moved to London, a magical gift of the price of a plane ticket home for Christmas appeared in my paypal account after I wrote about how much I wish I could be there for it and how I could never afford a ticket. I’ve met some life-long friends who have now been in-person friends for many years. I’ve followed the lives of these people over the last 12 years, watched them graduate, find their first real jobs, get married, get divorced, have children, lose children and just about everything else that could happen to a person in 12 years. Last night, that site closed down. It’s the end of an era. On a cheerier note, last weekend was wonderful with my mom here from New York. I bought my wedding dress (and shoes). We ate tons of tasty food at The Elk in the Woods, Liberty Cafe, Meghan’s, Bumpkin Chelsea and Maggie Jones. Plus, Jorge cooked arepas one night, which were also delicious. His parents were also in town from Spain to meet my mom for the first time and I got to practice my translation skills. Jorge says I could work for the UN. Maybe I have a new calling. Hm.
