One of the things I absolutely love about Twitter is that I get to talk to people all over the world on a daily basis. One of them is Nadia Lee.
Nadia is an author who I once offered representation to, many moons ago, before she eventually went with Diana Fox. We lost touch, as often happens with people who meet through business situations.
But I didn't forget Nadia and she didn't forget me. And when I eventually realized she was on Twitter, we started babbling, and discovered that we both love ice skating. Passionately, passionately love ice skating. We've spent the entire fall and winter talking about the current international skating season on Twitter, and tonight we got to tweet at each other during the Olympics Pairs Free Skate.
Me in NJ and Nadia in Japan, where she lives.
Life doesn't get much better than having an ice skating buddy who loves the sport as much as you, and who you can totally get all sports-fangirl with. =) Even if they live on the opposite side of the globe. *waves*
Oh, and Shen and Zhao won, which made my night. They completely and totally deserved it.
