Of blogs and blogging…

Last night, I went out with Miss Fab and a new guy, who we shall call Special K.

Both Miss Fab and Special K are bloggers. Do you know how great it is to go out with people who like to do the same things you do? When nobody else understands why you spend your time writing on the internet, other bloggers understand.

Even better when you talk to other bloggers? Blogging gossip. You can get all the good gossip if you talk to the right people.

These people can understand what’s going on. It feels good. Y even called me last night to make sure I was okay.


I’m doing good today. Surprisingly. I do have a busy day ahead but will be back this afternoon, hopefully with stories to share.

So let’s open it up to class participation time. If you had to meet another blogger, who would you want to meet and why?

    I’d be way too self-conscious and weird to ever meet anyone I read. I tend to only read the blogs of those I’m in awe of… for their wit, for their strength, for their ability to self-edit. But besides that, you, of course!

    I ran across your blog a couple weeks ago via clicking around other blogs. Then I found out you used to live in Durham (I live in Raleigh) - cooool. I like your writing style, you’re quite amusing :)

    Did you work for the Herald-Sun? They were sold to some … other company or something in Kentucky and a whole shitload of people were fired just because they felt like firing people. Lame.

    I think a girls night out with You, Me, Stacey (non prom queen), and Yvonne would be so much fun.

    I would want to meet you, because you are cool and we could be snarky to people. I’d also want o meet Racheal (Lil Baby G), because she shaved her kids head too!

    I have 5 blogs that I’m totally devoted to and I would like to meet each and everyone of them for one reason or another:

    Brian - Audience of One (sounds to me like a sexy guy)
    Mel - Actual Unretouched Photo ( preachers wife with good sense of humor)
    Dooce - love her wit and potty mouth attitude
    You - you sound like the younger version of myself only your more funny than I am.

    Well of course, you, SJ. I’ve met Maisonpants - she rocks it. But I’d like to meet Em at Idontthink, Itssonotaboutyou, Missdirected, motorcitybadkitty, tenthmuse, bigpinkcookie, Autum of Autumville and verymom. Fussy. And this sexy dude at yagersoft.

    I’m sure there are others. I have like 13940813 people on my favorites.

    Well, you of course, and thanks to larryFUCKINGelders, THAT never happened.

    Who else? Because, damn, I’ve met a lot of bloggers. And that totally wasn’t meant in a [myquotepicture]”bragging[/myquotepicture] way.

    LT at isnotchicago, because I love her and she loves jessica tandy.
    Erika at snazzykat because she’s my favorite liberal.
    sara at maxxipunk because we would get drunk and talk about eric neis.
    Chasmyn at purplegoddessinfrogpajamas because… just because I love her.
    and there are, like, 5 that i’d want to meet just so I could kick their asses, but I won’t name them here. I’ll tell you on the phone when we gossip.

    The other day I was eating a burrito and I totally had a “it would be cool to eat burritos with SJ” moment. So you’re definitely on my list.

    Also, I read a blog by a woman who has 18 month old twins (same age as my kid) and just a month ago had another set of twins (pregnancy was intentional, twins were accidental). I’d love to go visit her and give her a break for an hour or two. (http://paulnlaura.com/lalagirl/weblog.php)

    I’ve met Mindy (themommyblog) and my current new best friend was a fellow livejournaler. It’s weird, though, because when you get together with bloggers you often end up repeating things you’ve already written about. God I need new material.

    I would meet SJ, Y, Dooce, Kristie (Kristilicious), Mimi Smartypants, Finslippy, Jay (Jay’s Place), Genuine, Mikey (Hey Freak).

    I would like to meet you, Dooce and Beth from crazyus! And this is too cool - there’s another Di from Raleigh who has commented on this post. WOW.

    See you and Dooce would be the ultimate. But, I know what would happen. I would turn into a quivering mass of human jello and mumble things like, “gosh I love you so much.” and then I would just have to die.

    I would meet my favorite blogger SJ. I am hoping to anyway when I get to Texas. I would love to meet Heather (dooce), but I would have more diarrhea of the mouth than she admits to having and I think it might be a very non-productive meeting.

    Someone called you “The Ultimate.”

    I will refer to you as that from this day forward.

    You (of course), Dooce, MimiSmartypants, and Melissa of Suburbanbliss fame. I would like to have (lots of) drinks with all of you. Hope Grandpa is doing well and will be going home soon.

    Wow. I want to meet all the ones from my blogroll, but I guess top of the list would be Krissy from filegirl, you (but you’re a bit scary) and Mamacita from scheissweekly.

    I’ll meet with any blogger who will feed me green beans and let me crash on the couch for the night.

    well i’d meet michelle of the jamjar… because i’ve been having morning coffee with her online for ages, and it’d be totally great to have face to face coffee. she’s fantastic.
