I had pie for breakfast.
That title has nothing whatsoever to do with this post except that I'm purging my guilty conscience and I couldn't think of anything else to call this. I don't know if that's because I'm tired this morning, my brain's on hiatus or just what.
Yesterday was just sublime. If you are stumbling onto my blog for the first time, yesterday I was able to meet with six other fabulous women who happen to live in Southern California and who all read romance and blog. I think that's pretty darn incredible, fascinating and crazy all at the same time.
I mean, isn't it sort of crazy to feel like you really know someone just from reading their blog? I have to admit I DID feel that way meeting everyone yesterday. I had already met Nikki and Wendy, of course, but it was wonderful to meet Lori, Rowena, Daphne and Holly for the first time. There's a sort of instant rapport because we knew, for instance, that Holly had just purchased a new car. We knew pretty much what everyone had been reading and what authors they liked. Like everyone knew that I was still in a snit over LOVER UNBOUND. Don't worry I'll let it go...eventually. Anyway, that sort of instant connection wipes out those usual first moments when you meet someone new and are trying to initiate conversation. I didn't notice any of us skipping a beat. Hugs and chatter all around.
Meeting all these wonderful women was so much fun. While I know each of us have busy and full lives I can't help but hope we are able to get together again in the near future. I took not a single picture yesterday, so we will have to rely on the others to post theirs. Wendy has a post up about yesterday with a picture.
I want to publicly thank Holly, Lori, Nikki (& Kira), Wendy, Daphne and Rowena for a wonderful afternoon. When's the next one?
