Shake the remembrall | Current Remembrall

From one Duranie to another...

This was my first LJ icon ever - my default forever and probably the only icon I've had the entire time I've been part of this crazy community.

It's also one of the first things I remember Trisha 'talking' to me about. She wanted to know if she could use it as well, and that's how I discovered that we shared something more than HHr...we both had a deep seated obsession for Duran Duran.

Kind of fitting that today is actually Duran Duran appreciation.

Although I discovered Trisha through her fic, and got her encouragement to post to The Quidditch Pitch, more recently it was the random, day to day ramblings that we seemed to bond over. Twitter and tweets about seemingly meaningless things made me feel like I had a friend right there with me throughout my day. We'd 'sing' random song lyrics back and forth - she'd say she had some song stuck in her head, and so I'd taunt her with the chorus. She'd pick up the really obscure old school Duran Duran lyrics I'd throw out there, without fail. Sometimes I'd tweet them out there just to see if she'd respond.

I loved that she fell into Doctor Who and Torchwood and Star Trek. I was amazed at how she found the time to actually go and see Star Trek as many times as she did, and couldn't help but laugh in that she found her niche with Kirk/McCoy.

She made me laugh, even though she didn't know it. She made me smile throughout my day, even though she didn't know it. She was a kindred spirit, a loving mother, a prolific and talented author, and I'm sorry I never got the chance to meet her in person. I'm thankful I got to know her, even though it was in the 'all my friends are in the computer' kind of way. And I'm glad I gave her praise when I did, and that she knew that I was in awe of her talent and way with words.

There's an all night party in room 7609, and I know Trisha's a part of it.
