8-Things Thursday ~ a Meme

Magpie Girl asks, what 8 virtual friends would you like to meet IRL?

Andie (aka K9) ~ Chickory ~ I have known this girl from the beginning of my blogging 'career' ... she's got a Rhodesian Ridgeback and about 2 or 3 chickens ... yes, chickens. She helped me thru the awful experience of losing my beloved Afghan Hound. And she drew that sketch of me, which appears in the sidebar. She's a fabulous artist! She will forever be on my radar.

Cora (aka Mayden) ~ Mayden's Voyage ~ A true southern belle ... she makes cookies and sends them to her blog friends, which happen to be scattered all over the world. I have spoken with her on the phone ... what a sweet a soothing southern drawl she's got. I want to have dinner at her house ... she's a good cook.

Susan (aka Enemy of the Republic) ~ Cruel Virgin ~ A brillian genius with a heart and soul. She DOES NOT serve bullshit sandwiches on her blog ... ever. I love her to pieces ... really.

Kayce (aka Lucy) ~ Diamonds in the Sky with Lucy ~ A sort of kindred spirit. She writes honestly and beautifully. She's not bad with the ole camera, either.

Christine (aka BlissChick) ~ Blisschick ~ love her, the inspiration she exudes, and her REAL-ness.

Susannah ~ Ink on My Fingers ~ I cannot remember how I found this jewel of a girl, but she captured my heart immediately. Reading about how she overcame a terrible loss and grew from it, as opposed to becoming that loss ... well, that moved me. And, her photography is splendid! I only wish I'd discovered her when I lived in Crewkerne, in the SW England. I was very lonely then, feeling so isolated ... desperately needing some female energy.

Cala Lily  ~ Because it is My Heart ~ she no longer posts to her blog, but do poke thru it, her words and posts exude a painful beauty; she writes about the ugliness of domestic violence, of drug addiction, and regret ... bittersweet regret.

Camilla Engman ~ Camilla Engman I read about her in Susannah's Creative Life interview ... what drew me to her? The following, (an excerpt from her interview with Susannah) about her childhood wishes:

... To have a horse, to ride to school was the second one. We lived in an apartment on the second floor, but I figured the horse could stay in the bathroom. Its name would have been Silver or Baron.

I have always wanted strange pets, not really appropriate for domestic living ~ a dolphin, a llama, a draft horse with very furry feet, even a panda. So, I could relate to this ... Also, Camilla's art intrigues me.
