Meet the cast, part three: Friends edition

by Katie on January 30, 2010

The friend I’ve probably mentioned the most here is Allison.
My pot luck dorm roommate turned friend for life. She just always has outrageous stories, and is probably one of the most entertaining people to have a conversation with. And, due to all her outrageous stories, many people don’t realize how smart she is. But it’s true. As much as I hate to admit it, she totally smokes me in natural intelligence.
Anyway, I’ve told the story of how we met, and she’s the one who caught a fork on fire in her apartment. She was also the first to ask about the cat, and the first to know I had finally removed a cactus thorn from my leg. She has her own blog here, too.
Then we have my hometown girls, Nicki:
And Lindsey Gail:
They’re the reason I was so excited to see Aaron Watson that one time. Nicki has been my best friend since 7th grade. Lindsey joined us in 8th grade. But we all started Kindergarten together, so really, it was building all along.
Now, Nicki likes to take lots of pretty pictures (hire her!) and Lindsey is in her second semester of teaching kids how to write and play basketball. I wrote about Lindsey turning 24 last year, and Nicki, too. They’re those kind of people I can go weeks without talking to, months without seeing, and still pick up right where we left off.
We used to always say we would end up being The Golden Girls someday. We decided Nicki would be Dorothy, due to her dry humor; Lindsey would be Rose, due to her gullibility; I would be stuck with Blanche, which I was never all that excited about, due to all her running around with men, but she was the only one left.
There are a few more people we’ve mentioned casually, like Jamie:
And Jake:
And I’m sure this list will continue to grow. I just can’t remember anyone else I’ve mentioned specifically so far…
