Kelly is my dear friend and Ben is her husband, but that was all about to change. I have known Kelly for a very long time but since we live almost 3000 miles apart I had not, until the day before this pic was taken, met her husband Ben. That doesn’t mean I didn’t know all about him and he didn’t know all about me. But we will get to that.
Kel and I work at Yahoo! together and we became fast friends about 3 years ago. We have a lot in common. The most critical bit would probably be woo factor. This girl can turn a terrorist into a best friend in minutes. I have not seen it at that extreme but I do not doubt it can be done. She thinks. She does. She makes shit happen. Most admirable is that she dreams. And then turns those dreams into reality. Her Irish blood makes her a ton of fun and occasionally a liability (in that, I-am-really-tired-can’t-we-go-home sort of way). None the less she enjoys every drop of life and I love her company. Her love for wine and food is trumped by no one other than her husband. Well….she still loves wine more. So much she tweets about it.
Ben is her husband and now my buddy. About 10 minutes after we met we were sharing food and over ordering. Talk about getting along. Prior to us meeting the line on me meeting Ben was, “You guys will get along so well as when you meet you will forget I am here” (Kelly). Well, we didn’t forget she was there but we did get along very well. After one meal, we were thick like thieves. Ben is a corp guy doing a day to day in the music biz but has his moonlighting life of course. His love for food has brought him to start a supper club,. It has now moved from their apartment to a sushi restaurant that is closed one day a week.
These two make a beautiful couple and give me even more to look forward to during my San Francisco visits. Guys, SB was a blast. See you soon in SF.

Where do I begin. How about this!
