Beth posted a new page on her site which I think I must include here.
Who is Daniel?
Daniel is my best friend, who also happens to be my errand boy. This is just a silly way of saying that he does things for me.
You see, Daniel likes me. A lot. He’s known me for a number of years, and he seems to have this strange idea that I’m a really neat person or something. Oddly enough, I have the same feeling about him.
Have you ever meet somebody, maybe once in your life (if you’re lucky), the kind of person you can tell anything, and know that they’ll still be your friend?
Have you ever encountered a person who seems to know exactly what you’re getting at, when no one else seems to have a clue?
Well, Daniel is that kind of person for me. I’m really lucky (and so is he).
And if you’re wondering why we don’t get together, as in boyfriend/girlfriend, uh, there’s a good reason why not. Namely, we tried that once a long time ago, and it didn’t work out. We didn’t really communicate for a few years, but then things picked up again and now we’re best friends. We’ve found the proper shape for our friendship, and it’s very cool.
Since I’m not a person who makes friends easily, especially big, deep friends, I value Daniel very, very much.
He’s brilliant, he’s funny, he’s creative, and he’s a pain in the ass (he makes a great Devil’s Advocate). He’s also always there for me, and he knows how to get things done.
Daniel is my official archivist (this means he has copies of all sorts of pictures of me that I hope will never see the light of day again (I’m talking unflattering pictures, not that other kind)). And most importantly, he hosts my weblog for me.
He’s quite a lovable guy, even if he does use emacs. Sigh. :)
