Much has been said about the Idaho Bloggirls get-together last weekend. The other attendees’ narrations of the evening are a lot of fun but a bit exaggerated to make it sound like THE BEST NIGHT EVER!!!!
I’m worried people are getting jealous so I think it’s time I share my version of the events. Basically all we did was sit around, eat potatoes and surf the web. A few people talked via instant messenger across the table on their laptops.
The truth is, we’re all so socially inept, it’s become increasingly hard to speak with our voices or look at someone without a computer screen as a shield. Thank goodness Karen was able to find a restaurant with wireless internet AND killer french fries. Sadly, most of the girls forgot their webcams so I didn’t actually get to see them speak or move.
Man, those mashed potatoes were creamy.
I was able to pass my camera around the table and have everyone take pictures of themselves, which I then photoshopped together to make it look like we actually interacted.
It’s been said by many people that we were all afraid someone would turn out to be an old hairy man. No one was old, I was the only one that sounded like a man (it was a cold, I swear) and none but Alicia was plagued with facial hair.
Karen and Heather are both lovely girls, AND no one ever said they don’t have freakishly long tongues. They made us proud.
Erin, my longtime “real” friend and new blogging friend looks exactly like Natalie Portman. Feel free to check out her site and encourage her.
Honestly, to quote Mr. Bingley, “Upon my honour I never met with so many pleasant girls in my life, as I [did that] evening; and there [were] several of them, you see, uncommonly pretty.” We had a blast and I hope to meet many more of you, my internet girlfriends.
A girl in every “port”, ya know?
Also – Did anyone else see David Hasselhoff crying at the end of American Idol? Yeah… me too.
