Blogger HH..... a wee bit hazy

Right. So yesterday was a day of firsts for me...... I have never taken the GRE before so that was a first, and I went to the first blogger happy hour. let me recap both experiences

GRE: ok first of all what a heinous exam that does, in no way shape or form reflect my ability about epidemiology or the spread of infectious diseases, which is what I want to go to grad school for anyways.... I mean really, who really cares if I can calculate if one circle is bigger than another or that I know the antonym to Garrulous? I did allright and then proceeded right next door to the gym where I de-stressed for about an hour. Then went home, made the obligatory phone calls to the rents about my scores, and took a much needed nap and shower....

Blogger HH: Now I, like Kathryn, do not have the ability to link to everyone I met but here's a very general rundown of the guests. (Editor's note: Chip has been kind enough to insert the appropriate links. Bless his heart!)

Asian Mistress: Power to the people my asian compatriot! We are now officially Tiffanys twins and yes, true to my roots as a product of a montgomery county upbringing my accoutrement of tiffanys jewelery is wide and all-encompassing! Sorry I didn't stay longer.... daddy had a looooong day.

DC Cookie: For some reason I'm drawn to tall women and you are no exception! Funny and witty and I actually let her take a picture of me...... god I hope I don't have a goofy face... either that or do my Giselle Bundchen bedroom eyes thing. Chip is well aware that I have a set pose for taking casual pictures..... I think I whipped that one out last night.

KathrynOn: Fantastic organizer, and fantastic to get to know, unfortunately I left before things got really crazy but I'm looking forward to painting the town seven shades of fabulous in the future!

A Unique Alias: What a gentleman, now while I don't remember the specifics of the conversation that we had I do remember having a great time. I may have to add him to my straight men harem.

I-66: The half asians are taking over D.C.!!!

RC: I think I broke out my "belly dancing" moves for her last night read:I drunkenly shook my butt in her general direction..... ah well it wouldn't be a happy hour without me doing something embarassing.

Keith: Wonderful meeting another 'mo blogger, and your partner was wicked nice too!

I'm sure I met and talked with a number of others but right now trying to remember the conversations is making my head hurt....and we really don't want to stomp down that road any more than we have to.

Today is a Venti Pumpkin Spice Latte Day.......

Ha! You said, "wicked nice"! Too much time up in Lewiston - you can't escape the Maine accent! ;-)

Keith said...

dale, it was great meeting you too! we had a blast, but unfortunately had to leave early to make our opening week reservations at vegetate (a really good vegetarian restaurant at 9th and O). Hopefully I'll meet you at a 'mo hh soon...

And on the way to work, i was going to stop in for a grande pumpkin spice latte, but decided to wait till a bit later in the day. now i think i might go get one now and get a venti now that i can't get it out of my head :)

Dale said...

Dudley: your precense was missed last night by several of our fellow bloggers, I talked you up a great deal though!! P.S. my bag is totally still at your house from like a month ago and we definitely need to get together!!

Keith:hmmm vegetarian restaurant, being a big fan of the meat it's unclear as to my ever going there... but you'll have to tell me how it is! also, pumpkin spice latte's are like a hug in a cup!

A Unique Alias said...

It was really great meeting you. I can't believe I might actually get to be a stag hag. Yay!

Asian Mistress said...

I love you oh so much, can't wait for more fun and debauchery next week!

Everyone knows that asians are hot.

The Boy said...

Congrats on the GRE's!

Ugh, I'm hungover and need me some Lantern this evening.

Dale said...

I'm totally hungover and would be right there with you tonight....however it's one of my bestest friends B-Day celebrations tonight so I'll be going out like a rockstar with her... plans for next week though?

DC Cookie said...

Dale said...

AUA: Obviously for as fabulous as I am I must have only the best stag hag's!

Jampa: oh please don't be embarassed.... I "tripped" I think after you guys had left and completely plotzed on the floor, embarassing....party of one...calling embarassing....party of one.

Cookie: next time you'll have to let the 'mo bloggers show you how we roll!

DC Cookie said...

If 'mo bloggers forgive me for being such a crass snatch :-(

Dale said...

oh honey please.... I've cussed people out in 3 different languages when drunk, made out with men who I wouldn't wish on my worst enemy, and donned booty shorts and danced on a pole!! (ok so the last one I would do sober but you get the general idea) ........you can always come out to the gayborhood avec moi!

DC Cookie said...

Ooo Ooo! Booty shorts and pole-dancing! Oh, it's on...

Dale said...

oh cookie.... I have the pictures to prove it...

bettyjoan said...

So fabulous to meet you, my fellow blogger happy hour virgin (well, not anymore...mwa ha ha)! Hope to see you again soon.

Kathryn Is So Over said...

I am so ready for that night out! I was going to JR's with my vbg when you were only 16. I'm ready for my triumphant return.

Sara said...

Dale said...

OH and dudley.... you know I represent Maine... or as I refer to it as... the deep south of the far north!!
