Internet Dating

If only internet dating could be like meeting bloggers you admire I would sign up in a second. Hell, I'd probably be married by now.

There's a lot I want to tell you about today.

It was Blog Action Day, this year's theme was poverty. I had a lot to tell you about that.

I was at work, though, and still not quite up to par so I couldn't do much but work.

My pets are being weird about their food.

Someone discovered a "suspicious package" near the park and it turned out to be a bag full of body parts disguised inside a cardboard box.

There's a fire-gutted car around the block.

OK, but really, the only interesting thing to say about today is how much fun I just got back from having. San Diego Momma is in town for a few days of celebration. It was a challenge for her to get on the plane but she did it with grace and she's here now and I got to meet her! There's a small (and possibly false) sense of security to meeting someone you "know" from their blogging that has panned out for me both times I've had the courage to meet someone from the blogosphere, if you will. We started out asking each other the basics, of course, but in short order moved right over those and left a huge gap of blanks because we had too many other things to discuss. We met up with a couple of her family members and I was lucky enough to tag along to a fabulous new (to me) restaurant and I had to almost literally tear myself away in order to come back and be a responsible, pet caretaking, cold-having adult. I would do it again in a minute.

So, here's my million dollar idea. Feel free to steal it. Come up with a way to make internet dating like meeting bloggy friends and I will be your first client. Scouts honor.


  1. Tell me why someone hasn't put together a list of single bloggers? Wouldn't that solve the problem?

    Or you could have a service where to become a client you have to have a blog for a certain length of time with a certain amount of posting. It could be analyzed for its interactions with other bloggers.

    I'm just so luck I was in the right bar at the right time!

  3. Well, I don't know that it's a problem exactly but it would be an interesting resource, that's for sure!

  4. I'm back home! But I miss Brooklyn already!

    It was great meeting you. I'm really glad we had a chance to talk for a bit.

    How's the cold????

    And did they ever ID the body?

  5. SDM, Brooklyn pulls you right in and never lets you go. I love it. So great to meet you as well! The cold is better, almost cured, 98%. I checked the news again today and no ID reported on the body but they did say it was male and killed elsewhere by stabbing then cut into convenient bits and carried to the tony block in Fort Greene. I don't know if we'll ever hear the full answer.
