Bloggers in person
I'm here in New York, with the unbelievably lovely weather and the daffodils all in bloom. It feels like the tropics to me. Big celebration tonight for a major birthday of my brother--which one? I'll never tell.
But last night I managed to meet up with a bunch of bloggers for a drink, dinner, and conversation. Present were the illustrious Cara and Jeremy from Who Knew, Norm Geras of Normblog (visiting from England and doing the tourist thing in NY), Mary of exit zero (and presently guesting, with Jeremy, at Michael Totten's), and Judith of Kesher Talk.
See, you have dinner with me, you get a link--just like that!
One of the many beauties of the event is that I don't have to write about it much, because I imagine the others will. But I did want to say a couple of things. The first one is that, as you might imagine to be the case, bloggers can talk. Even bereft of our computers, no problem at all.
Secondly, I think there might be a future in some sort of twelve-step program for bloggers. It does have a fairly addictive quality. Those bloggers among you, you probably know what I mean.
Thirdly (although I know it's hard to believe), we are all even more fascinating and charming in person than in print.
