verb to express delight; noun term of endearment for one who squees; usage: "She squee'd when she realized she'd see her squees soon." Frequently adapted to form new words, as in squeeunion

Yeah. Call me cheesy. Call me silly. Call me goofy and girltastic.

I don't care. 'Cause you're right — on all counts — and you can also call me happy. And excited. And grateful beyond belief.

Tomorrow, Halfglassistan is hosting the inaugural Squeeunion.

Yeah. That's right. You can now call me what I'm currently (um, okay, always) calling myself: All. Kinds. Of. Awesome.

Over the past year, there have been few things that I could count on unconditionally, so those things on which I could rely became very precious. One of those things was a little red dot. Day after day, week after week, month after month, very little in Halfglassistan was certain.

(Kinda the whole point of founding this little land of mine. If you're new in this parts, I recommend starting here and taking a look around. I promise that for every anxiety expressed, there's equal or greater happiness to be found.) 

That little red dot, though, was a constant. A simple indicator that a message was waiting became so much more. A reconnection of three high school friends quickly evolved into a sisterhood whose story was being written in Facebook message threads. Seemingly random subject lines give no clue to the content within. We write of our pasts and our presents, of laughter and love, of tears and triumphs — and most importantly — how all of those have become intertwined.

Tomorrow after months of virtual hugs and hand-holding — and 25 years since the three of us have shared oxygen — my sweet SPG and CVZ are arriving in Halfglassistan.

Let the squeeing begin.


  1. Fantastic! I would be squeeing too! Have a wonderful Squeeunion! Happy SITS day!

  2. I love the word 'squee'. And you. Are. Totally. Girltastic! Have fun squeeing into the squee hours with your best squees from h.s.


I do a little happy dance every time I get a comment. Please, won't you contribute to that geeky deliciousness?
