When Bloggers Meet

It's time to work on my blog roll again. Yesterday was another wonderful meeting of the New England bloggers. This time hosted by Jill who has the most delightful 1920's era home. (as I've mentioned before, I LOVE old houses, I just don't know if I could ever live in one because of the upkeep involved). There was gorgeous woodwork, lovely wood floors, along with an excellent builtin china cabinet in the dining room. All with that lovely patina that comes from age giving it a mellow look. Quite delightful.

Even more fun was (owing to my husband being far more observant than I am as my eye passed right over it) finding that she and I both own identical Lane "Hope Chests", both of us having it handed down by our mothers. What are the odds?

There was excellent food, much wine and beer (even some gin was spotted) to complement the wide ranging discussions - from politics to the Bible to Broadway musicals. It was a rather larger gathering than usual.

The lovely Sissy and the most excellent though blogless Tuck, Miss Kelly with her delightful husband, Sol (the mastermind behind all these gatherings), Neo-neocon (who always manages to make it despite a quite long drive involved), Harry (who has missed the last few - so it was wonderful to see him again), and Mitch (who left a bit early, but did manage to get there for a while), this rounds out the group of "bloggers I've met before".

New this time a few more delightful bloggers were able to attend, I'll be adding them to my sidebar soon. Jeremy and Cara of Who Knew? and Daniel in Brookline along with his lovely wife.

Once again, if you ever have the chance to attend a blog meet, don't miss it. No matter the topic, there is always an opinion, much discussion, and lots of laughter. It's a wonderful way to spend the evening.

Update: for some reason I keep thinking I've missed a blogger in my list... with my memory being approximately on par with that of a flea lately, it's very likely that I did miss a person - If so, please forgive me and drop me a comment or email to yell at me.

Me My Me My Meme

Well, let's see, Richmond tagged me with the latest meme wending its way round the blogs and so I guess I have to stop and think... geeze!

Okay - here goes

1. My: You’ve heard the saying “I’d give my right arm for”. So, what would you give your right arm for?

I can't think of a single "thing" I would give my arm for. To save someone else would be worthwhile. But not to acquire some sort of item or even vast wealth.

2. Me: What’s one word that describes how you want people to see you?

Intelligent.

3. Meme: If you could be any blogger, which blogger would you be? and why?

I'd like to be Lileks because he has such a wonderful way with words and he finds so much laughter and fun in everyday life.

Now I'm supposed to tag 3 people... so how about Jill, Quality Weenie, and Rave. I'll have to let them know after 24 is over.

They May be Wacky but...

Via Instapundit comes the awards for Wacky Warning labels.

I was reading through the list when I saw this one:

”Guess where I’m calling you from now? The other third place winner was found by Nancy Shue of York, Pennsylvania on a on a cell phone. The warning? It says: “Don’t try to dry your phone in a microwave oven.”

Yesterday I was listening to a couple of guys on the radio, one of them had dropped his phone in water and it wasn't working. Someone actually called in with the suggestion above to dry it out.

Wacky? 'nuff said.
