Bossy Adventure Continued....

OK..
A little more in detail.
Bri and I arrived first, we had talked on the phone a couple times during the day about the name tags..which I was insistant on..and I must say Bossy loved...
We started the evening with 2 martinis..shown in last nights post. Bri is awesome..and looks a bit like a mix of Keira Knightly and Natalie Portman.
I had to crack up cause the minute we were servered our martini's both Bri and I break out the camera's to take a picture of them...like that was totally the most normal thing to do!
Bri LOOKS like she is 23..but she isn't. I was very surprised she had passed the 30 mark. That's some good genes..

Go figure..Bri ended up going to high school with Julie. They didn't know each other from their small So Ill town but knew a bunch of the same people. Julie is with child..she doesn't blog much but maybe we'll change that... :-)

Not long after Bri and I got to the bar Georgia/Bossy arrived with her host and the hosts's snarky sister.
Bossy's host doesn't post her pics..she prefers to remain unknown.. Heather thought she could just wear a bag over her head like the unknown comic on the Gong Show.. LOL...
Heather cracks me up cause she is so unassuming..yet the quick dry comments that come out of her mouth would make you pee your pants...
Bossy w/ her Stretch Armstrong arms did get an awesome group picture which I'm hoping that she will post on her blog.

I need to get the entire list of people that were there..WOBL.. Wise Old Black Lady. Doesn't that crack you up. Raquita sat across from me...she has the quick whit..and AWESOME camera and is very big in the new St Louis blogging community..

Kelly and her daughter came. Talk about beautiful..aka Vanessa Willimas. Kelly got to get on her soap box a couple times..and talk about to the point..she is in the education field but IMO should be in politics..unlike me who gets bored when I'm talking to myself..this woman can keep your attention, educate and entertain you..her blog is fun too.

Sonrie.. I don't think I'm supposed to post her real name.. was there too but I didn't really get to talk to her.
I think if I had any complaints at all on the evening it would be that there were too many people. There were always 4 or 5 converstations going on at once and I didn't want to miss out on any of them. There were thinkgs I would have liked to have asked Bossy/Georgia.. I think I had a list in my head but there was just so much going on.

There was one other girl there but I've never visited her blog..and man was she cute and funny.. Bri is going to send me the link.
I GOT IT...I saw the link from my stat thingy... Miss Fluid Pudding!!


Twitter..should I or shouldn't I?
I'm afraid if I twit and tweet I wouldn't blog...
*******************************************
OK I'm tweeting..and twittering and Jean sent me a message but I can't figure out how to respond cause there is nothing in the drop down...
How do I know if there are other people I want to follow that I don't have their email addresses..?? I guess I'll figure it out.

sonrie said...

haha...thanks for not saying my 'real' name. I agree, it was hard hear down at your end of the table-- maybe have everyone switch seats halfway through or something. It was really lovely to meet everyone though!!

Angela said...

Yeah--I had to look up the name thing to see Who Does and Who Doesn't! What a lovely evening. It was so nice to meet you last night. (Be sure to let us know about the Hallmark special!)

Heather said...

You forgot to mention Dooce! Just kidding. I had a great time and so glad that Bossy came to St. Louis. Otherwise, I don't know that I would have ever got to meet you all in person.

Bri said...

I am blushing over here, BLUSHING I tell you! lol I found people to follow on twitter mostly on their blogs, but if you look at who other people are following, that's a great way to find people to follow. It took me forever to figure out how to do the @so-and-so thing, but I saw that you've already got that one down!

The aftershock scared the crap out of me, I saw on the news that it was another 4.5, I was sitting on the couch messing around on my laptop when it felt like the couch started to sway! At first I thought it was the drinks, but then it got stronger and things started rattling. The first two didn't bother me at all, I don't know why this one scared me. ;)

How excting. I was so looking forward to reading your post today. Looks like such a great time. I wish I could have been there to make THREE REPUBLICAN BLOGGERS. NO STINKING WAY, in the same room!!! Good thing I didn't come, else HELL might have frozen over. You all look great. Thank God for the beautiful weather to go with it and I think that music sounds KICK A**!!!

KEEP BELIEVING

Yay~ you found me on Twitter and now I've found you. Want to thank all of you overachievers for blogging so quickly about this. I needed pics to steal and verify everyone's blog address. heh
And I didn't know about the aftershock until reading it here! Too funny. Go McCain!

Dolce said...

The pictures bring the whole thing together! I'm so glad you had a fun time, it makes me want to meet local bloggers too!
