  1. My husband and I spent the first five months of our relationship IM’ing back and forth between West Virginia and Delaware. All I can say is, yep, that’s exactly what its like. Long-distance relationships can work out! Good luck to you both. πŸ˜€

  2. LOL! I laughed until I contracted. This is SO you two!

  3. My husband was in Korea for the year before our wedding. Then on several deployments our first few years. Even after getting out of the army, we’ve had three long distance moves where’s he’s had to go on ahead. It’s hard, very hard. And if it don’t kill ya’, it really will make you stronger.

  4. So far we haven’t been apart, except when I was overnight in the hospital; but my husband and I do IM each other from separate rooms of the house (instead of yelling across the house):

    ME: Could you get me a glass of water?

    (Can’t move, I’m feeding the baby.)

    HIM: sure

  5. LOL!! Too funny. You two sound like a hoot.

  6. That really cracked me up.

    Especially since, geekily, I just loaded a google clock on my home page to tell me what time it is in Tokyo so I can figure out when my husband might be up to IM me.

    yeah, did I mention that we just moved into a new house and they sent him to TOKYO and KOREA for a month or so? *sigh*

  7. Too funny!

  8. How sweet and funny at the same time. Keep it up, so Elizabeth can have that baby!

  9. Been there, done that. My husband and I met online in a Christian chat room seven years ago, in the early days of ICQ. We had hours and hours of conversations like that. We have random ones saved and occasionally we uncover them and get quite a laugh out of it. And recently I read about something called ‘couple-surfing’ which is a couple, each with their respective computers, sitting next to each other, surfing the internet, reading each other excerpts of what they find. We totally do that! Yes, we’re geeks. And we love it πŸ™‚

  10. LOL! That is great!

  11. If Jackson Browne weren’t a washed-up drunk he could write a funny song about this

    Long distance love, geek style. The Jackson Browne title would have to be “Homeschooling juvie fiction writers and comic book editors in love.”…

  12. I love it! My hubby and I IM back and forth like that too! We are total geeks. πŸ™‚

  13. So funny! I looked at this just as I hung up from my hubby (who’s across the street in his office). We were simultaneously finding our house on the “wikimapia.org”.

  14. maybe you will someday be washed up drunk. so you write things you know about- being a goody-goody. how attractive

  15. […] and I have taken geekdom to a whole new level lately by communicating via Twitter. John Stossel’s mustache is so […]
