Thanks to some horrible past experiences I have been cautious about meeting people from the blog world. I am glad that I went and got to meet some new people that turned out to be a blast to hang out with. I don’t think I have ever had four hours go by that fast.
We got there a little early and had a beer while we waited. Bea had to go to the bathroom and a father was also leading his little girl to the bathroom. He just saw a dude standing out side the girls bathroom and like I was doing waited right outside. I realized that woman take forever in the bathroom, while we waited for them we only exchanged a couple of glances. I was half hoping Bea would exit the bathroom first so that he did not think that I was some weirdo hanging out by the bathrooms… it turns out we were there for the same meet up, and the guy waiting there was Meesha.
Before we found out about that, we hanged out at the bar enjoying our beer. There was another group of people there that pulled out a laptop but I did not recognize anyone… so we kept on waiting. Finally around the time the meeting was supposed to happen I did a quick walk around the place and found Spyder, Dan, The Librarian and Hoochie Mama. I told them that I had to go get my wife from the Bar… when I came back Meesha, Kansas City Kitty and KC Daily Photo had joined the group. Chimpotle arrived but was kind of shy probably thinking he was the youngest one there. I did not get a chance to talk to him as much as I wanted to, but I am sure we will in the future.
We got an awesome table and started to have chats about pretty much everything from religion to relationships. It was interesting to see how bloggers interact with each other in a group… I mean, we are all a little narcissistic and like to be the center of attention… and all the dialogue that developed. It was awesome to get to know everyone at a more personal level and to see how open everyone is once they are face to face.
Mr XO, Happy in a Bag, KC beer blog and Well Hell Michelle showed up fashionably late but joined the fun right away. I got to talk to some more than others and would really like to eventually call some of them friends. I love this town even more now that I got to meet some of the notorious bloggers around. Funny thing is that not many even realized that the veteran blogger of my household is actually my wife. She already posted some pictures in her flickr.
