And you leave me with my jaw on the floor, hey!

Feeling a lot better today! My elbow still stings, and my back and bum are sore, but I'll manage to do the laundry tonight. Unfortunately. (I think laundry, unless machines are accessible in the very house or apartment you live in, is the lamest chore ever.)

By the way, the illustrious Zan left a comment in the more positive post from yesterday about that doorman - and apparently, he's been written about before! Check it!

Anyway, I must now write about the wonderful time I had last night with Beth from Bethis. [Sidenote: if you're not reading her blog, you should be!!] She's visiting from Rhode Island and stayed at a hotel near where I work, so we met up at a classy place called Whiskey Park for the hilarity. And, I can tell you, she is as funny as her blog. I was dying.

The great thing about meeting up with a blogger is getting to share all the stuff you DON'T write about and the reasons why. Secrets, secrets - are fun, when they're innocent, and you'd rather share them with a friend than a google searcher. I think the main question I would ask of any blogger would be about their past; our blogs tend to reside in the present, and every now and then the blogger will tread back for a memory or two. But getting to talk face to face makes it all the better, and Beth and I talked about where we grew up, went to school, etc., etc., etc. Also, she's been living in Rhode Island for over a year and we don't have any mutual friends! That's surprising for two people who have lived there, just saying.

And that's about all I can say about what we talked about. Mwahahaha.

So after the hour and a half of laughing at the bar we had to part ways - her to another swanky bar, and me to my own tragic crosswalk fall. Beth, you better come back for more hangs!


  1. It's always nice to be called "illustrious"... Feel better! Those laughing jerks will see the other side of that bad karma one day.

  2. Ah what a great story about the Plaza doorman. Gives me the warm and fuzzies a little!
    PS Your package should be there today or tomorrow!! Look out for it! it's full of randomness!

  3. Will you be coming to the 20SB meetup? I hope so because it's in my city and I want to hang out!

  4. Yeah, I know what you mean about hanging out with people you meet on the Internet. You'd be surprised about how many lasting relationships I've built via

  5. Yay friends!!! I loved meeting you and I love that you put an okgo lyric as the title because we spent a good 30 seconds trying to think of that band. Win! AH I just love you and want to be your BFF and see your brooklyn apartment and meet your friends and EVERYTHING. And, of course, continue our Gossip Fest 09 for many more hours.

    This means I will be back soon. Maybe permanently. Maybe. Ijksdhfj.

  6. Zan - thanks! yes, yes, illustrious! i'm still sore today, can't sleep very well, but this is all minor stuffs...

    Kristen - SWEET! Can't wait!

    Jamie - Arg! I really want to, but it's a little too close to the wedding money-wise. I won't be making any big trips (save for maybe the bachelorette party and honeymoon) until next winter probably! Wah! I want to hang out with YOU!

    Jonah - you're gross.

    Beth - Can't wait until you return for more fun, in the city, and Brooklyn...and for le goss. Also, you should come back and I will take you to a place that gives you a free pizza when you buy a beer. It's the best thing ever.

  7. That must have been hilarious! I love Beth's blog. I'm nervous to meet other bloggers in real life.

  8. liz - yeah! beth's blog rocks! and don't you worry, i definitely have fears about meeting people in real life (me, of a generation that remembers a time before the internet...), but beth is awesome. also, i would def not be nervous to meet you!! :D
