Well we had our Paris/France Blog Meet last night. There was a good turnout... about 15 or 20 people. Many Pink Cosmopolitans were drunk. There is a list below of those who showed up.. if I forgot someone, let me know. Thanks to Petite Anglaise, who organized the event.
Despite a common concern about meeting people in person that we've been talking to daily on our blogs...no worries....it was really fun. The Paris/France bloggers are a ... friendly, nice, welcoming group of people. It was really interesting putting faces and blogs together. For me, most matched up as I imagined, but there were one or two surprises. We did miss Jason, who had left Paris the day before.
Last night was a great success, and as such, I'm sure it will be repeated. So for those of you who couldn't come to this event... you better get there next time. No excuses!

So, who fell down first? It probably would have been me if I had been there.

I know there are quite a few Chicago bloggers who live in my neighborhood. Sometimes I wonder if anyone on my bus or in the coffee shop or walking down the street are bloggers whose sites I enjoy reading.

Jason, We really did miss you. I can't answer your question because I was the first blogger to leave... had to get the kids.
Pismire, I doubt you're a dork!
