i just had my first "real" coversation via skype with J. it was awesome! we'd sorta tested it before they left, but not much. finially the times were right [with the 9 hour time difference], the planets aligned & i got to see everyone!
it's wierd. i remember when i was in high school, you'd be talking to on the phone for a while. it seemed like eventually the convo would get around to the subject of "if we could see each other" while on the phone. now you can..
technology is crazy scary exciting.
