I miss her.
That said, an unlikely person keeps revealing herself to be kindred-er and kindred-er -- she's a pastor, and married to a Republican (she isn't, though), but we spend a lot of time saying "YES" and "Oh I know" and, as you say, "me too!" The most recent one was funny, as we were talking about male and female communication styles (you guys have seen me talk about this before) and I said, as I have a billion times, "Have you heard of Deborah Tannen?" and she said, as no-one ever does, "YES, I love her book 'You Just Don't Understand'!" And we quoted it merrily at each other for a while. That was fun.
Plus she's a big fan of Atul Gawande. I think those are the two people I quote the most that people in general have never heard of.
Plus, at a more meta level, the whole "have you heard of" or "have you read" thing comes up a lot with us -- we often HAVE heard of and HAVE read, but that type of two-way conversation is rare.
