Friends ... duh ... whatís that?!? I lost most of them when I became a digital dweeb surfing the net and spending countless constipated hours constructing this hopeless homepage (I know, always aliterations). Although, I do now have more virtual friends than real ones. Iím not sure if thatís a good or bad thing ... the "virtue of virtual versus physical" (say it 5 times fast!) ... mmmm ... I think my Toronto friends are beginning to look more like avatars.
Actually, most of my Toronto friends (all two of them) are still living in the Flintstone age. I haven't yet managed to get their photos scanned either. Calvin & Mark, Doug & Jerome and other rent-a-friends are coming real soon now to an internet server near you (as soon as I do their portraits!) - so keep watching!
Perhaps I treasure true friends almost as much if not more than a lover. You can never have too many friends but you also cannot have too many true friends either. Like a masterpiece, they should be rare and unique. My cousin Edmond is one such friend - time tested and true. We shared a childhood together in Hong Kong and spent adolescent summers in Western Canada. He is now a struggling film maker with a clear vision and focused determination to get his first full-length featured film out. Last year he met his significant half, Dennis, and I also wish them well.
As for cyber friends, Iím just starting to get to know some, especially on the GAM channel of the IRC. Kenji is my 1st internet contact and has been very helpful and supportive. Perhaps you and I will hit it off! I hope you will chat me up when you see FlyLice (that's fried rice to you, you pLick!) logged on. This is to differentiate the stale old rice (moi) from the BabyRice.
