The name of my blogspot

My 19 year old daughter, Bri and her best friend, Charly, both had cell phones, and when they weren't chattering away to each other on the phone, they were texting one another... they had fun coming up with new signatures on their cell phones to surprise each other - Bri would be Bill and Charly's signature became Ted... my daughter would be Jack and Charly's signature became Sally... they thought they were SO cute - and they were...
Charly passed away September 18th, 2007 at the age of 17 of a terminal illness - Cystic Fibrosis.
Bri and Charly had an instant bond and had been kindred spirits for nearly eight years... both were creative, artistic, dreamers... they shared a love of music, Hayao Miyazaki's films and dreamed of one day going to college together and living as roommates on the Northshore in Hawaii... they loved Disneyland and the fantasyland rides Peter Pan and Alice in Wonderland - they'd love to fly to Neverland or fall together down the rabbit hole to Wonderland...
and the signature on Charly's phone last September - "curious" and my daughter's - "...&curiouser"
