I went to the blogger meet and greet and drink last night. I don't know how many people came, but it was enough to need four tables, and that's with a few extras rotating around.
I've never been to Governor Stumpy's before. It seemed like a nice establishment. I think the waitstaff was getting a little exasperated every time more people would so up and we needed more chairs. We were a little loud, but certainly not rowdy. An elderly woman in a table next to us kept turning in her chair and giving us the hairy eyeball.
Like I said, lots of bloggers in attendance. Some I have met before: XO, Spyder, Michelle, Mark, and Death. Then, there were a bunch I was just meeting for the first time: The D (who was quiet initially, but warmed up after a beer or two...I think he was just intimidated that my awesomeness dwarfed his), KC Sponge (who is the first Jewish person I've met who admittedly eats pork), M Toast (whom I realized I know from another message board), Brad (who is not at all ugly), Emaw, and Faith (who is just as awesome and funny in real life as she is on her blog).
There were more people there, some comings and goings that I didn't catch. If I left you out, sorry!! I'll catch you next time!!
Some items discussed: blogging (of course), the douchebag that is Michael Vick, sex toys, current events, hospital horror stories, and some serial dater named Patrick.
Talk is strong of this being a monthly event. Who knows...maybe we can get matching t-shirts. Keep your ears and eyes open for more info on the August meet-up. I can't wait to see you there!!
Until then...keep posting, commenting, and doing whatever it is you are doing naked while surfing the internet.
