Bloggin' in the real world

By all accounts, last night's blogger meetup at Governor Stumpy's was a smashing success.

It's so cool to see people that you know through the blogworld in person in the real world. I was amazed and humbled at the combined talent that was gathered around the five or six tables that we commandeered.

I regret that I couldn't stay longer and talk to more people. I particularly missed having longer conversations with Heather, The D, Faith, Eolai and lots of others.

But I did have a good time getting to know KC Sponge and meeting Dan in the flesh. Also had a great discussion with Lee Ingalls, proprietor of the fabulous The New Low Down and the funny/quirky Oddment of Sandwiches. Seriously, if you haven't checked out his stuff, do. You won't be disappointed.

And I can't forget to mention Xavier Onassis. I made good on my promise to deliver a fabulous prize to him for finding an error in this post. Although, technically it was a grammar error, not a spelling one (that's my story and I'm sticking to it). Anyway, the photo is of the crazy awesome shirt I gave him as a prize.

Really looking forward to next time. I hope to see some of the newer bloggers there. I'm looking at you Chimpo and muzak.

  1. Was great seeing you. Maybe next time we'll get to talk a bit more.

  2. Awww, now why you done did dat?? Now I have to be held accountable for my meaningless blather? We'll see what I can do next time.

  3. muzak was my ride. I place all the blame on him.

  4. The next one should be before the Ku vs. K-state football game so I can tell you how and why KU is going to whip K-state.

    Next time I might be on time (stupid work responsibilities).

  5. The D,
    The next one should be after the K-State vs. KU football game, so you can tell me why KU will "win next year."

  7. Yep - all too brief an appearance for my own liking with so many groovy people I would've liked to have a good chat with.

    But clearly it was such a success that there'll be plenty more.

  8. Very delighted to have you be the first blogger I met - thanks for keeping me informed and up to date!! Can't wait til the next one.

  9. That sounds fun. I think I am a bit too far away.

    Hop a flight from Philly next month. You won't regret it!

  12. Great to finally meet you the other night. We'll have to do it again soon.

  13. A good time was had by Lee. Looking forward to the next time. Oh, and thanks for the kind words about Sandwiches. (btw, your Simpson's avatar doesn't do you justice.)

  14. I wish I could have been there!
