Blogtoberfest Recap!

When I arrived at the Pour House and was talking to Jenny and her lovely coworker Amber, a woman asked "What kind of party is this" and as the other girls began to explain it was a meetup for local bloggers, I turned and said "It's an event celebrating internet hotness"

And was it EVER.

So much fun last night! Jenny did a wonderful job getting together a great bunch of bloggers, a fabulous list of sponsors who provided some to die for prizes and free food for all! As was my downfall last year, I spent my time more chatting with a core group (mostly my blog girls) and I don't feel like I networked as much as I should have but I think I did more than last year so maybe by the time the next blog event rolls around (which will be sooner than you think thanks to Jenny's mad planning skillz), I will make it all the way around the room.

I started off the night chatting with the divine Ulli and fabulous friend from home Caity and we were later joined by my cousin Anna. I met Nathan also for the second time (under a SECRET blog name!) and he was friendly and fun as always. I was psyched to finally meet Eileen whose blog I love and who is also so friendly and nice and awesome! AND meeting Adam and Ron from Universal Hub was a treat to say the least! I think it's safe to say Mr G. was the toast of the party!

Tom and his lovely girlfriend Samantha were also so fun to talk to, so much so that I threatened to invite them to my annual Christmas party. And when my perennial favorites E. and Krista showed up I was so excited I knocked over my drink.

The night went on from there - lots of blogossip and shenanigans and inappropriateness. I got the hiccups SO BAD (as I am wont to do from time to time) and could not get rid of them no matter what I did. Krista, Ulli and Caity tried to help me but it was to no avail. SO when they finally randomly stopped on there own I of course ordered a round of tequila shots for us all because how else does one celebrate the cessation of hiccups?

This morning I am feeling that shot (and the wine and the G&Ts) but it was a well worth it and I have a half day today at work so whatevs.

In conclusion, Jenny did a superb job with this event and we all can't wait to see what she has up her sleeve for the next Blog Party!! And if I met you and neglected to mention it, it's not because you weren't awesome but because cheap gin clouds the mind!

My former fabulous roommate who is visiting just said

"You need vitamin G"

"What's G" I ask.


Off to breakfast.

eileen said...

Woooo! It was great meeting you as well!

And my boss is away so I slept in and am still at home.

Oh, I meant to ask you this last night but kept forgetting- have you thought about writing a cookbook? Because you totally should.

Jealous. SO JEALOUS.

Can Jenny plan one for So Cal... and then all you guys come out here?!

Thanks for saying I was awesome. We met ever so briefly, and I feel your non-network blues.

I don't feel your tequila blues because I wandered down Newbury Street after being overserved at the Pour House and gobbled some sushi at Shino until I sobered up.

Good work. Great crowd. More mingling and SLIGHTLY less drinking in February.

What? Nothing about your Blogtoberfest sexual assault at the hands of Ulli? :-p

as good a story as that would be, i believe that in some ways What Happens at Blogtoberfest, Stays at Blogtoberfest.
