Two Captains and a K8

I met another blogger last night! New vistas are opening up for me, people! When Captain Keebler emailed me to ask if I wanted to meet Captain Crab, my only response was, "Yes." I've been told that I really should consider excising the words, "I'm really shy." from my vocabulary, but we're working on that.

The word "lovely" was used probably way too much, but that's a perfect way to describe the evening. Upon being seated at the restaurant, Captain Crab immediately ordered a dirty steak knife for me should he or Captain Keebler turn out to be serial killers. It never arrived.

Things I learned:
  • I really enjoy meeting new people
  • I can do a pretty mean pirate "arrrgh"
  • When asked to do math in my head, I look around for help without even trying it first. Hrmph. That was interesting to note.
  • Herefords can have horns
  • Laughing is one of my favorite things to do
  • The bubble I live in is expanding at great speed. How exciting is THAT?
  • I will probably always be the one that ends the party because I get too tired.

I'm afraid that Captain Keebler was somewhat left out of the conversation for the first hour, so enamored were Captain Crab and I of each other, but we let him back in after a bit. After all, he already knows us. Captain Crab and I had some catching up to do. Three hours later, as we headed home, I smiled silently to myself. I've been collecting lovely evenings more and more of late. How wonderful is that?

It's fantastic so you keep on "collecting" these lovely evenings. And keep laughing, too.

I love meeting random people that you don't need to kill with a dirty steak knife.

Some of my best friends are bloggers. In fact, all of my best friends are bloggers.

Bloggers = good people.

I have not ever met another blogger.. I suspect I never will.

the first blogger I met was nice, but it wound up being almost the last time we communicated with each other - period. So that left a sour taste in my mouth for the internet for a while. But two weeks ago, while in London, I met two blogger acquaintances and had an absolutely wonderful time with each. So, the internet is back in my good graces.

I'm glad you had a good time. It's fun meeting new people (old acquaintances).

I think there's something both scary and exhilarating about meeting other bloggers. They already know so much about you by reading your blog. Yet, you've never interacted with them in person. It's a weird juxtaposition. But, in my experience, I've been very thankful that I got the chance to meet the bloggers I did. Here's to expanded circles, my friend!

Meeting bloggers is my favorite... obviously.
