When bloggers meet

First, a handy hint: if you're going to meet up with folks in Chinatown here in DC, it's a good idea to see what's going on at the Verizon Center before you get in your car. Trying to find street parking/affordable parking near the arena when the Wizards are playing the Knicks is not really possible. That said, I had a very nice time, indeed, at the DC Blogger Meet-Up. Friendly peeps, as always, and, for the first time ever, I got to enjoy a pub in DC without coughing up a lung from cigarette smoke! (No offense to my smoking friends - I just have really weak lungs and loads of allergies!) And I had some mighty tasty beer-battered cod and chips with loads of vinegar. Split some outrageously rich dark chocolate cake with my friend Janet. Life was good. It was nice to get out for a couple of hours tonight. Blow off some steam. Laugh. Just talk.

I'm in the middle of a huge mutha of a project at work right now, hence the lack of substantive posts here at the Church of the Big Sky. All the words in my head are going directly into that monster. Once this is finished, I'll be able to spare some thoughts for the blog. Right now, though, unless you want to hear about Afghan antiquities, I'm running on empty.

More words soon, soon...

So nice to see you again and swap stories. Made me realize I should probably write up my "heroin and the missionary" story. What was I thinking?!

Good luck with the Afghan antiquities proposal. You have THE coolest job!

Maybe best if you save your effort for the project, even though I'm fond of Afghan antiques!

OMG. I was laughing and shuddering, simultaneously! The only men who should be wearing tights are ballet dancers. Period. No ifs, ands, or buts. Especially no butts or their anterior accoutrement.
