Pearlie, 2008

As I approach the 2nd year anniversary of this blog later this month, I wanted to post this picture of a dear blogger friend on the opposite side of the world who has been here almost from the very beginning. We found each other's blogs randomly and soon recognized our love of the Bible, grammar, books, learning, and blogging. I loved this picture of how she blogs over there in Malaysia where she is 12 hours ahead of me each day. Every day! She is posed appropriately in front of her books, but I was surprised to see her in jeans. I don't know why, I guess I naively thought jeans were American while there on the humid equator region where she lives, she would be wearing something cooler. Anyway, thanks Pearlie for your blogging friendship. Someday, we'll meet for sure.

What am I to say?! but thanks - 2 years ... wow, I didn't realise that it has been 2 years. I find it quite amazing and I thank God for you. I still remember the first time I came across your blog through the random "Next Blog" link :)

I had to chuckle at your comment about the jeans. Maybe one day I will wear a sarong and take a picture for you ... except that I don't wear sarongs :)

Yes, one day we will meet for sure. Hmm ... I really wonder what will happen when that happens, fish out the keyboard and start typing comments? hahaha ... that will be funny.

may i ask, what in the world does B.F.O.T.I stand for!!!

I think the "but thanks" came off a bit wrong on second reading :) what I meant was I can't thank you more - it is certainly a blessing knowing you, Julia.

Best Friend on the Internet?
Best Fool on the Internet?

I didn't even notice the BUT. Do other people wear sarongs by you? Let me warn you, I won't take out my keyboard b/c I talk way faster than I type!

Bridget- I knew Pearlie would know what it means b/c she's a whiz that way :)

P.S. Jeans are common around the world and has anyone heard of the BUM Company?

Jewels said...

Calvin - What is your trophy for?

Calvin said...

Oh that trophy was for winning a quiz without a single question wrong (It was a group quiz) and my father won the golfer's throphy next to mine.
