This is really cool. An acquaintance. Well, acquaintance might be stretching it – we’ve been chatting on IRC for many, many years. You know IRC? Yes, that’s how old-school I am, but this connection goes far beyond that.

Today, a package arrived from an IRC buddy. I tore it open as soon as I got home. And luckily for me, there was some authentic Swedish tacos ready to be heated up. Raspberry and lingonberry sauce were generously poured over the tacos.

Yeah, it was delicious, but that’s beside the point. I’m still teary-eyed over these little thoughtful gestures that people around me do. I appreciate it immensely. Everyone should have a genuine IRC friend.

And if you’re reading this, you know who you are ;) I’ll be visiting Gothenburg this summer!
