Longest friends meme

I got this from geminigirl

Who on your friends list have you known the longest, how long has it been and how did you meet?

I've known belmikey and mhaithaca since 1987, when we were all on a few boards at Umaine.bitnet. Belmikey and I were talking about this just the other night, and couldn't pin it down closer than September 1987.

We met in person in the spring of 1989, when Flar and I flew to Cornell for a Startrek party at their frat. Belmikey and Mhaithaca actually drove to the airport and trailed us to the frat, in case we missed a turn. As soon as we parked the rental car and got out, they were there to greet me.

The party was a potluck, so I sent my cookie recipe ahead of me for Mhaithaca to acquire the ingrediments, and I got to make cookies in the closest to a commercial kitchen that I've ever used.
