Tea Time At the Plaza with Annie

I got to meet my fifth blogging buddy on Tuesday....Loving Annie.....and we had "Tea" at the Plaza Hotel in NYC!!!!! (I'm typing with the pinky finger up as I say this ;-)

I arrived early and took a little stroll around Central Park. Took some pics, acted like a tourist.

Let me preface this by saying that when I go to Loving Annie's blog, I get an immediate feeling of "AH", it's nice to be here. It's like putting your feet up and letting out a big sigh. Comfortable.

When Annie and I arrived at the designated "Tea" spot, I got that same feeling. I felt like I knew her forever. She was one of the nicest people I've had the occasion to meet. We gabbed about life, love, silliness...heartaches, while being served the "oh so lovely" tea! Annie took notes so she can write the entire menu in her blog when she gets home to California. The server was giving her the eye as she was writing, probably thinking she was a food critic of some kind...hehe.

I suggest there's only one thing better, Odat: tea at the Algonquin, where Dorothy Parker, Thurber, DeVries, et al. held court. Try it.

It looks wonderful and I'm glad you got to meet another blogging friend. I haven't met a single blogger yet, but I really hope to...you included!

Patti said...

Looks like you had a lovely tea. It's such fun to meet a fellow blogger. I hope we can meet sometime. We're not too far away here in Connecticut.

You described the way I felt when I met the Queen (Mimi) and the Duchess, Linda.

I felt like I had known those two wonderful people for years! It was such fun to meet them in person.

Have a great Friday, Odat.

Loving Annie said...

Cyber hugs and raised pinkies :)
