Blogger Happy Hour(s)

Some thoughts from my first Blogger Happy Hour:
*Kathryn and Cookie throw a chill soiree and the former has a mini-Bermuda bag to die for. My regular one suddenly seems oversized.
*V. Kent's gift of a "BILF" shirt to the birthday girl was hi-larious.
*Walking into a roomful of new people who already know each other is always daunting but having a guide is helpful. The delightful Etc. was the best sherpa any girl could ask for. Must repay with drinks when I get back.
*If you come across like a pompous ass on your blog you probably do in person too.
*If your blog is the result of a focus group at work it's not a blog. It's an advertisement. And I don't want to talk to you about it when I'm out on a Friday night.
*Work in Blogress is funny in person. Not funny like a clown. Not Rita Rudner funny. Really ridiculously funny. Whether he likes it or not I'm about to force him to become one of my new buddies.
*I do have the ability to chat with RCR about his enviably erudite writing without resorting to "You blog good. Me like." Frankly that came as a surprise to me.
*Late night at Blogger Happy Hour + early morning road trip equals 30 minute nap in McDonald's parking lot in Thornburg Virginia.

I was gunning for pompous ass, but guess I'll settle for erudite.

Wow, thanks, BB. I always say funny is a lot easier when you've got good help, and you more than hold your own.

I'm curious, though, where you put Rita Rudner on the clown-to-ridiculous scale. Is she the middle? I kind of liked her stuff, c. 1988. There's deadpan, then there's deadpan-plus-looking-really-stoned, and she had that down like nobody's business. Maybe not stoned, but definitely sniffing glue. But I digress.

To quote Peter Griffin of Family Guy fame I put her--in terms of this post--in "Funny funny? Or Rita Rudner--God love her she's trying--funny?"
