When you are talking about Johnny from down the road that you went to high school with, or Mary from the cubicle next to yours, even Willie from the service that you have not seen in a decade and you call them friends everyone knows what you are talking about. Society seems to say you can be friends with folks you rarely speak with and in some cases would not even invite to your home. There are people that go out of their way to set up pen-pals, friends who my never meet, and that’s OK.


Try explaining to someone who does not spend much time on-line how you can be friends with people you have met through playing a video game and wait for the blank stares. Why is it that people simply can’t understand that you can in fact become friends just chatting. Sitting up late, just hanging out in vent or typing back and forth. The Internet is a wonderful place, I have gotten to meet lots of interesting people I would likely never have met without it. The only downside is that while the earth has shrunk in terms of communication it is still a pretty big place as far as actually getting somewhere goes.


Wouldn’t it be nice to be able to say, lets raid (insert instance here) tonight and then all get together for lunch tomorrow? How about getting a whole guild together for a cookout? In a few rare cases it might be able to happen, but most guilds are made up of folks from all over.


One of those friends of mine I have known for a couple of years. She has been my raid leader, guild master, and seemingly bottomless pit of little bits of knowledge about the wonderful game we play. Yesterday she also decided to join the ranks of those who blog about warcraft. Stop by and check it out,  tell her Dechion sent you =)
