Last Wednesday, I met Laura for lunch. We had been emailing each other on MySpace and had talked on the phone a time or two. She was on vacation last week, so I thought perhaps she'd like to meet up for lunch.
As they say, a sucker is born every minute and she went for it. (just kidding!). She agreed to meet us - I have both kids since it's still STILL summer break - anywho....
We met and she is as nice and lovely in person as she is on her blog and in her picture. The conversation flowed right along. In getting to "know" each other on MySpace, we discovered that we know many of the same people in real life.
We graduated from different high schools, but I dated a guy who went to her school and she had been contacted for a friend request on MySpace from a guy I know from high school, so it's just a very small world.
It was a super lunch. I only wished we could have had more of the gang there, but that planning is in the works. Since a few of the local bloggers have regular day jobs, we might have to schedule a weekend meet up, but I think that's doable.
I'm open to any suggestions from Teays Valley to Kanawha City locations, so if other bloggers would like to chime in with ideas, that would be wonderful!
I'm having lunch with Buzzardbilly today. I have a few things to give her and she's going to loan me a book, plus we just really enjoy hanging out.
Also, I know I posted some pics yesterday and I meant to add that I would take request on pics. Want to see me doing something insane? Let me know. I'm only willing to go as far as cleavage - so no nudity, unless you want to see my feet or something (and I believe I already showcased one in a blog about "really cute sandals" a while back).
As for the rest of you - get a MySpace and email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I'll tell you how to add me as a friend and then join my mob. I'm serious, people. I might have to start breaking knuckles around here and then how will you type? Hmmmm?
