A Couple of Bloggers Breaking Bread


Exactly one week ago today, I had the pleasure of meeting up and breaking bread with the famous blogging couple, Crankster http://cranky-bastard.blogspot.com/ and Misanthropster http://misanthropster.blogspot.com/. But I didn't get to meet lil George. They look nothing like their South Park avatars, even tho they'd like you to believe they do. (Well maybe just a little). Poor Mis was just getting over the "ick" and couldn't speak too loudly, if at all. So the Crankster did all the talking. I just wanted to let everyone know how very sweet they were. (and polite too!). Maybe because it was our first meeting and first impressions count and all that.
But I just find it so wild that this blog space here has brought me together with fellow bloggers that I would have otherwise not have ever known about and here we are, meeting up and exchanging pleasantries and sharing a meal and some laughs. It was so great! Actually Crank and Mis are the second and third bloggers who I've met. I also met up with my blogging idol, Boondoggled http://boondoggled.blogspot.com/ last summer as she whizzed by here on her way to Scotland.
I'm hoping I get to see Mis again when she can at least speak...lol. I'm sure I will. And if anyone else is coming to or thru NYC, give me shout!
Peace

That is so cool. I, too, have met a few fellow bloggers here in Asia.

If I ever find myself in NYC, I sure would love to meet up with you. :-)

Odat said...

Roger...Where ya going????

Lizza, isn't it great? and if ever I get there, I'll be sure to stop by too!

Matt-man, I don't see why anyone would want to avoid you!!

Not so....oops...but I already knew you before blogging (bb) so it's not like I met you thru a blog!

Peace

Funny, I just posted about what happens when you meet blogpals a couple of days ago. I've never done it yet, though I'm sure it'd be great fun. Wow, you're really doing it, though!

odat - i'm in NYC all the time so I'll hit you up for sure. So tell me, did you have a picture in your mind of what Crankster and Misanthropster might look like (besides their South Park avatars) and were you surprised by anything?

I always find it fascinating to finally meet someone that I've had phone conversations with. I mentally make a person based on their voice and man, I am always, always way off base!

hi odat. i'm sick. sick sucks. i hate being sick. sigh..... do you have anything cold to drink in here? i'm looking all around and all i see is a pile of what looks like monkey poop or something. i'm just going to lay down over here for a minute....

smiles, bee

Deb said...

You didn't meet me through a blog either. You knew me long before you started blogging, and used to get a confused expression on your face when I would tell you I'm in the blog world catching up on the news.

I remember it clearly...... oh wait. I'll save that for my "Quote of the Week!"

hehe

I'd love to go to NYC. I can't remember the last time I was there. Is Crankster tall, dark, and handsome, with hair, and no beard, and Misanthrope, simply gorgeous, like you?

Matt said...

Well, I can honestly say my blogging has led to one romantic tryst and a good number of friends. :)

Odat said...

*(asterik) yeah it's really wild to meet blog buddies!

Lee, yeah let me know when you're in town!!! The only thing I was surprised about is how young they are and how old I feel...lol...they're such a cute couple!!!!

Ah, it sounds like it was a good time. I rarely get into the city even though I'm only an hour and a half away. Next time I plan on going to the city, I'll let you know. If you ever come up to CT let me know. Love to get together.

Odat said...

Hiya C...sure anytime.

Ian, I have to go out to the "Wild West" to visit "Wild Ian"? lol.

Bee...ok now....sleep well, hope you had a nice nap.

pickled...yeah it was really cool.
