I used a tool on myspace where you put in your e-mail address and it finds myspace pages for the people in your contact list. And there he/she was, and old blog friend with whom things ended poorly, and of course I spied on the page.
He/she seems to be doing well. He/she dumped what I think was an abusive spouse and got married again. Hopefully things are as good for him/her as they appear.
I certianly wouldn't want to get back in touch with him/her, that "friendship" caused me a lot of stress, but I couldn't be happier to see he/she and his/her kids are doing well.
