one, two, three


How did she know that I love tulips? Because she's that kind of woman.

Today my Dad, Bumper, and I met with the lovely Jessica of Daysgoby.

She showered me with those beautiful flowers for my blogiversary (what? Blue Mountain didn't send you a reminder? It isn't a national holiday - yet).

She demonstrated incredible restraint and didn't beat me with a stick when I bounded across the restaurant and wrapped myself around her like a feral monkey. Mind you, it was like a good kind of feral monkey who doesn't throw poop, but a scary monkey nonetheless. No really, I did. I saw her drive up and I bounced outta of my chair and loped across the room like a lunatic. She probably wished she'd kept driving.

The fact that she didn't mace me made me love her even more.

We had one of those visits that felt like five minutes though logic tells me that it was at least an hour or two. We could have talked all day - whipping each other with tangents that you just wanted to pursue. Meeting bloggers and making real life friends is a work hazard. A potential hazard I'm willing to risk.

If I didn't know better, I'd think Jessica was related to me - I swear (and so does my Dad) that she was my sister. But after heavily quizzing both my parents, I established she wasn't. Too bad. That would have been fun - and worthy of a post and a few hundred therapy sessions (for her because joining this family = LUNACY).

Anyhow, she probably will have my IP blocked by the end of tonight, but that's okay - I know where she lives.

Oh yes, and it is my TWO year blogiversary today and it was celebrated in style. I met a beautiful fellow blogger AND I was Kawasakied. Screw modesty, I'm stoked to be on AllTop. What a way to start year three. I'm bringing on the tantrums folks because THREE is gonna be a hell of a ride.

I saw that you were Kawasakied but I didn't realize it was a new thing! Congratulations!

And I think it shows definite telling signs of my mental status that your crew? I could adopt them.

Next time, we start at eight am. 'Kay?

Gee. I'm reading about all these bloggers getting together. Seems like no one wants to hang in MN. Go figure!

Congrats on 2 years and looking forward to the tantrums.

Congratulations! I'm so not-with-it, I have NO IDEA what "being kawasakied" means, though it sounds painful - hope you're o.k.
