Two Bloggers with One Stone

| | Comments (7)

Not all female bloggers are 'real-life' scary like I am!

I gained this rather depressing insight on Saturday night, when a certain Bad Kitty finally strutted into town after several noble-but-unsuccessful attempts to do so earlier last week (Damn this Maryland Transportation Authority and all their confusingly criss-crossing train tracks leading to all sorts of obscure places, except to those places where you really want to go!) and thus my cover's been blown.

Luckily she's been sworn to secrecy. If she dares to disregard her life-long gag order, the catnapping of the century will take place at her home in Michigan.

Anyway, the girl is GORGEOUS! And SKINNY! And COOL! And FUNNY!

And she was sweet enough not to recoil in horror the moment she met me.

Now I can FINALLY say that I've met another blogger!

But I've made up for lost time, because Stacy immediately introduced me to another cool, gorgeous, smart and funny blogging chick. And she's from right here in Baltimoremoremore!

Oh, it was a lovely night, this meeting of the bloggers.

There were bears, and beers, and bearsandbeers, and talking (also, briefly, on the cell phone, to her) and laughing (LOTS of laughing!) and cigar smoking.

There was a car trip, a misunderstanding, an ID check (we were carded! No, let me rephrase that: I also managed to get carded, despite being next to Miss Fountain of Youth herself! (Yes, she really is THAT gorgeous!) I never thought I'd see the day/night again, so whoo-hooooooooo! And yes, I've just realized that my excitement about being carded is yet another pitiful and sure sign that I'm getting really old).

Then there were even more introductions and at least two more realizations that the world's population might not be quite as large as we've been led to believe. I refuse to say that it's a small world, because if you've ever found yourself on a trans-Atlantic flight, then you KNOW that the world isn't small. In fact, then you know that the world is really quite, quite large.

Anyway, it was fantastic to meet and/or talk to all of you.

May we all have a speedy reunion!

P.S. Oh, and the cherry on top of all of this is that I came home to discover a voice message from my very own blogging benefactress! Thanks, Em! I'm sorry I missed your call.

Hey Red! I was very surprised and pleased to talk briefly with you. Wish I had more time to stay and chat, maybe next time. I absolutely love your accent, girl!

Cheers!

Oh, Red ... how you flatter me so.

You're not too shabby lookin' yourself, ya know.

It was a pleasure meeting and hangin' out with you and your man, and just so you know:

That was the first time since I turned 26 that I was carded!!

I shit you not.

Anyhoo, I've got business to take care of up here in the Great White North (a.k.a. "Fake Canada" ... thank you Lyn for that one) but you can bet your White Ass that I'll be in touch shortly.

Thank you for your friendship, and all your support.

To the Internets! L'Chaim!

Red Dahling,
I feel so left out. I never get carded anymore. In fact I was so offended the last time that it did happen. I think the bouncer did it to humor the old girl. We were not amused.

about
is a South African girl living in South Africa. That doesn't sound very original, we know, but you might find it remotely interesting when you learn that she has only recently returned to South Africa for the first time after a nine year, one month and two week (non-stop!) stint in the United States where she accidentally became an outlawed alien (also known, especially in immigration circles, as an 'illegal immigrant.' We prefer the term 'outlawed alien' ourselves). During her reversed exile from her homeland, she kept herself occupied by winning this website (but only after shamelessly bribing the judges) and thus being unleashed on the web where she slowly, leisurely became the World's Laziest Blogger; by being a nanny and by attending sci-fi conventions in search of other aliens. In the US, she also made her sailing debut, her international acting debut, tried and failed to learn the piano, and never learned to cook. She is hopelessly addicted to coffee, dogs (especially Labrador Retrievers), how-to books (with a particular fondness for her copy of the Time/Life A - Z Medical Encyclopedia), and she tends to grossly overuse parentheses (we're not kidding) during her attempts at writing, which you may - if you really have masochistic tendencies - subject yourself to by reading the words to the right of this column. If you REALLY and truly STILL want to know more, you can read her C.V. here.
Or you can stalk her send her some love via e-mail at: redsaid[AT]gmail[DOT]com

The Wish List (Because yes, she really does need more how-to books. Honestly!)
