Ellie’s New Friend

As I stood on the second floor of a major department store chain, I felt nervous. I wished I had brushed my hair, put on makeup (yeah, right) or plucked my eyebrows.

I was having an internet meetup and my meetee didn’t even know!

That’s right! Ellie and I went and met a blogger today. It was like a blind date, bloggy style

We stopped at the mall and met “J” at Otter Green.

Let me tell you people, she’s cute. Super cute with rosy cheeks! And Ellie LOVED her name tag.

It was kind of surreal meeting someone you know from the internet in real life. Even more so when the person tells you where she works but doesn’t know you’re going to stop by.

So, thanks, J. Hope I didn’t embarrass you or anything like that.

    She IS super-cute. I miss her blog. Did you find out just how long she’d vowed to stay away?

    So cute. I miss Janna’s blog, too.
    As for typing “sarcastic” to comment, can I put “cynical”? I’m really more that than sarcastic. Or could I put a different word depending on the comment, say “gushing” for this one?

    I’ve met only two bloggers in real life (who I knew were bloggers). It was a little out there. In DFW, a blog-listing site has regular cocktail hour/meetups, but I’m always working or don’t really care to meet any of them.
