"I love you more." - George Duke, I love You More [buy the album]The List. The Last Update.
This week is a sad tale of woe in the 101/1001 world as I only have one update.
60. Meet someone in person from another city that I first met through blogging (completed).Mo, her sister, and I had brunch at Roscoe's Chicken 'N Waffles today. Mo is, I think, the first person from the blog world that I actually talked to and developed a relationship with way back when this joint first started. We made fun of Chuck Sawyer and she introduced me to a lot of the other black bloggers and diarists out there. I love miss Monique. Suffice it to say, it was a good time. Her sister is hilarious and we laughed and clowned and took pictures and set off the afternoon right. I tried to get the scoop as she's not writing as much about her personal life on her site(s) as she once was and I never see her on IM anymore but 75 minutes ain't that long and we both had places to be.
It was exceedingly normal and comfortable and not-creepy. Sometimes, though, this mixture of the virtual and the real creeps me out. Hanging with EJ and Mike in Hawaii was excellentbut going to one of those early meatspace joints totally squicked me out. I mentioned on Megan's post that the fact that we both eat at Jinky's and that it's possible we've been there at the same time is weird to me. On Friday night at Dancing Brave's (who I knew in the flesh before I knew her internet personae) birthday extravaganza, Ultra Tart, the now-defunct Lazy Girl and I played the Who's the Defamer game. For some reason, I've been suspected of being the defamer by those who know me. I'm not. I've got a needling suspicion, though, that the defamer and I have been at the same parties and/or events and might even run in circles that at times intertwine and it drives me bonkers.
I've had IM and email conversations with this virtual person who I may very well have clinked glasses with or passed when I'm visiting fox television on the fox lot or who may be hooking up with one of my friends and I don't even know it.
See, now I've creeped myself out.
I need a shower.
I might get the opportunity to meet Gwen and her clan tomorrow. I suspect that this will be more like Mo and less like the defamer on the creeping-jason-out scale.
Do I get bonus points on the 101/1001 for that?
