Blogger Day

Saturday was Blogger Day in Cincinnati, and what a day it was. I started off my day bright and early on Saturday morning, getting up at 8 so I could be out the door by 9:30 to drop my boy off with his Grandma in time to get to Dewey's Pizza by 1. Even though the alarm usually goes off at 5:30, 8 a.m. is NOT sleeping in.

Getting to Cincinnati was easy enough, but when our direction to the pizza place instructed us to “Take the left exit” was where we got lost. Once we got close, we still couldn't find the building. It was dumb luck that the Crack Technical Staff® happened to park in the correct garage. It was several more minutes of going up and down stairs at Newport on the Levee before we finally found ourselves on the chilly, damp patio with a bunch of not-so-strangers.

I forgot to take my camera, so I won't linger on lunch. Just that everyone was fun and there was beer for all! And we left the restaurant only half an hour after we were supposed to have arrived at the Reds Hall of Fame.

    I had my eyes closed! Actually, that’s probably the BEST picture ever…[I’m not very photogenic].

    Nice to hear Broo bumped ya. There was a VCR snafu @ OBC world headquarters, it seems the Direct TV guy didnt reconnect the dvd/vcr from Friday’s installation. I did, however, TiVo it on another television. I was sawing logs before the broadcast aired.

    We’ll keep an eye out for you in future weeks. Wasnt Broo taller than you expected?

    Kitty – I bet you’re plenty photogenic. You probably just have a frequent picture-taker in your life who takes bad pictures of you. I have one of those: my mother-in-law. Anyone else takes a photo of me and I look like a more-or-less normal human being; she takes a picture of me and I look like Jabba the Hut.

    OBC – I could tell Broo was going to be tall, but yeah, he is even more than you’d think. He’s got a definite Conan O’Brien thing going on, height-wise. But everyone there was taller than me. I felt pretty much dwarfed sitting at the desk.
