>Female to be dear kindred soul-friend. Must have a good sense of humor, soft shoulder for crying on, great laugh. Must be willing to to humor me, call me out, buy me chocolate on bad days, and to receive the same in kind. A silly streak is an absolute must, as well as enough scheduling freedom to connect on a regular basis. Spontaneous phone calls, notes, cups of coffee must be included in friendship. Must be able to enjoy life even when it involves broken down cars, broken nails, broken dreams. All applicants will be considered, and possibly all accepted (this is a mutual decision). Please contact me with your interest.

  1. >Not to toot my own horn too loudly, but I can do all of those things. Maybe I should send my resume? I realize I don’t know how to put the thingy above the ‘e’ in resumay and I can’t think of what it’s called right now because it’s too early. But I still can be kind of smart sometimes. And funny, I’m totally funny.

  2. >Do you take applicants that fall just a bit short of the requirements? I don’t drink coffee, but will drink hot tea while you drink coffee. (But don’t ask me to actually make coffee – when we have guests, we give them the coffee and the pot and let them make it.)

  3. >I’d do it in a heartbeat! But I fear I live too far away to qualify — I’ll send you some Norwegian chocolate though? just email me your address at susanne(at)thesusanne.com and I’ll get it in the mail asap!

  4. >I wish that I was closer, you sound like a person I would love to have coffee and laugh with. I would love to borrow this and put this on my blog, it is so beautifully written. May I?

  5. >You had me at coffee, chocolates and at enjoying life inspite and despite of. Count me in. I may not be a jester in disguise, but I do have insane moments you’ll find irresistible, I promise. 🙂

  6. >Hi Elle. I too am a West Coast Transplant. I moved around a lot in my lifetime, and Minnesota has been the hardest place for me to connect to others. I have never encountered so many good folks who have never lived anywhere else and furthermore, still know and hang out with their friends from kindergarten! My Minnesota Nice Theory, and what I told my children over the years as they too tried to fit in, was that it’s a big clique here. It’s not that people don’t like you; it’s that there isn’t an opening for you because they all have friends that they’ve known forever, and apparently no one ever moves away from here. The people I have managed to connect with on a deeper level here tend to be other transplants. Anyway, just my 2 cents worth… Would certainly enjoy meeting for coffee if you are interested, as we are practically neighbors. You can find my email on my blog profile if you want to discuss a plan.P.S. Do you miss the Pacific as much as I do??:-)

  7. >I went the opposite way, and then some. Midwest to Cal… and now in Italy for a while. I miss the midwest and I think that’s why I love it here so much… there’s a lot of midwest-iness here in northern Italy actually. I feel quite at home. Of course the language makes it a bit harder to make friends. And I so miss going out for a coffee with a girlfriend.
