One of verabee's friends, erikamoen who I think is a past or present roommate, is both an artist and a lesbian. She recently wrote a very cool essay about meeting her girlfriend, Marni, and the struggles with coming out to her family. I never read the essay. but I did read the 40-page comic that included much of the essay with the art.
Well, I noted that on pages 12, 13, 16, and 17, she mentions a girl named Lynn Trickey.
Now, that's not a very common name. But I looked at erikamoen's profile, found that she lives in Seattle, and wondered. And I posted this comment:
"Hey, by any chance, is the friend Lynn Trickey you mention in the comic also from the Seattle area? I'm from Seattle, and I once knew someone with that name (she was in my high school, and we went to Italy together). I don't think it's a very common name. She has an older sister named Annie."
And erikamoen wrote back:
"Dude, she is!!! Small world!"
So, there you have it. Lynn, my roommate from Italy, bought-a-kilo-of-kiwis Lynn, younger sister of Annie Trickey, who was a year younger than me in high school and in Tattoo with me, is a friend of erikamoen, who is a roommate and friend of verabee, who writes a comic introduced to me by my good friend bluemoonshark, also from high school.
LIFE IS FULL OF ADVENTURE.
