Nice to Meet Ya!!

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.

Hoping to make it to the August one!

"Patrick the serial dater." Hhhmm, sounds a lot like an old roommate of mine. Does he have two labradors? You have no idea how many people I run into who "briefly" dated him!

"The D" said...

That is TOTALLY NOT POSSIBLE!

I had a great time but I'm sorry I didn't get to talk with you more. I'm really looking forward to next time.

Cheers!

If it is in the last 2 weeks of August I should be able to make that one. :) Would have loved to go last night, but the state does nto look kindly on leaving a 7 year old home alone. :/ Damn laws....

Faith said...

Patrick is married now, and doesn't serial date any more. He just happened to "date" two of us that were at the table last night, is all. It warranted a short bit o' discussion...

Heather, it was so much fun meeting you! And everyone else! (Seriously, D, you were quiet at first...) I can't believe I was such a 'tard about drinking that much and waiting to eat. Soooo stupid...

whomever sets up the next one should keep little busy frog pajamas in mind and make it a monday or tuesday. sounds like a successful and fun filled evening.

Well Hell Michelle said...

Heather, great to see you again. And you know that blogger bowling would be some good times :)

KC Sponge said...

I say a kickball team is in order!

Great to meet you and look forward to many more stories to come!!

You know the only two places big enough to handle a blogger bowl-o-rama are in the northland! And that would mean that many people would bitch and few would show up.

I am so sorry I was in Vegas babysitting my design team and a new client. I will be at the next one! Even if it is JOCO.
