Sharing a brain

I have very little claim to my own brain - i swear some of my friends live in it.
For years Rea and i have known that we share a brain and really only function at full capacity when we are together.
Melanie and I think so completely on the same wavelength that we aren't allowed to play Taboo or Guesstures together because we are unbeatable.
Need an example?
The year i first started my blog, Mel had it published for me for Christmas; super great present, right?
While i've been taking a hiatus from work I've been trying to catch up on some to-do lists at home (and resting, of course; i swear i'm resting) and i sent her an email inquiring about how she made that gift, what site she used, etc. Since i don't have 2008, 2009 or 2010 in print i figured i would work on it over the holidays.
Less than four hours later there was a box at my door.
It was from Melanie.  
What was inside? you ask.
The 2010 edition of the Nikiverse.
When i talked to her that night we both laughed and she said that after she read my earlier email she decided to just not answer it for a day or two to not give away that she had already ordered this years's for me.
Sometimes i wish that i had control of my whole brain, but mostly i really like sharing it with people i love.

That. is awesome. I must know where she got it done.

Woah! Who is this friend of yours? She sounds totally awesome. That's the best gift ever! When I finally do visit your place, I have to see both editions. I have to.

Aaw, that's wonderfully thoughtful of her!

I'm thinking about getting one of those blog books eventually. It's a neat idea.
