Two MIRLs Make a Right

Ya'll, it's pretty hard not to get excited by someone who promises to bring "healthy boob and ass action" to a meet 'n greet, so I was right psyched by last night's big MIRL with the lovely Kate from Hey Pretty.

I sauntered into the Capitol Lounge accompanied by the statuesque beauty of my friend Lisa, and, as I'm wont to do, I squealed with delight and kind of did a spastic jump upon meeting Kate. There was a lot of arm waving and seat dancing on my part, 'cause, my pretties, Kate is just as funny and warm and intelligent in person as she is in print.

I love this MIRL thing!

Fortunately, so do all of my other peeps, and it was wonderful of Kristin from Candy Sandwich, Kate's friend (and now one of my new ones) EJ in full stripey gloriousness, Matty from Animal Mind, Scotty from Broke Kid, Scotty's wicked cute Peace Corps friend Ryan, and, of course, Megan Barbara Jane Jones and Har Har Harwell to come out and play, too.

I accidentally wore two different shoes, and Matty kept hitting me for inexplicable reasons, but other than that, we had ourselves a lively, lovely time punctuated by some Jager shots and whatnot. Last night totally underscored my enthusiasm for meeting up with blogger kids in real life.

So, who's next, my pretties? There are more than a few of you in the D.C. Metro area. Who's brave enough to plan a meet 'n greet with me, my boobs and Mr. Jim Beam?

In the Comments section, tell me about someone lovely that you've recently met.

    I am amazed that I was able to drive home last night. I was in rare form.

    Wahhh...I wanna come play too.....

  • At 9:21 PM , Blogger Lisa said...

    Seriously, folks... go for the boobs, stay for the conversation. Totally worth it.

  • At 11:25 PM , Blogger Hey Pretty said...

    you are too kind. I had a blast. We must do it again very soon.

    Thursday night I met this chick on the ice skating like a champ. I started skating around her, made small talk, now she's my BFF! She taught me to skate backwards. I first thought she might like boobs too but then she mentioned hubby & kids. Bat says sometimes they say that b/c they don't want to announce it. Anywho, she's really cool and I'm glad I've got another friend on the ice.

    Aw, you pulled it off just fine, kid. Except the kidney punches.

    AW--I'm up for a road trip to visit our neighbors to the North. Canada's strip-club regulations are much more lax.

    LisaLisa Cult Jam, boobs and convo is a deadly combo. I think your new rockin' bra set the tone for the evening.

    Hey Kate! I speak the truth, my dear. You and EJ have standing invites to all future social events, though sometimes that just means drinking Busch Light in the backyard.

    Yay, FC&F! Yay--I love new friends who teach me to skate backwards. How fun!

    k, i'll bite...what'a MIRL?

  • At 9:35 AM , Blogger 123Valerie said...

    Hi Lee!

    Up until a month ago, I didn't know what it meant either and now I'm like a crazy person. It's "meeting in real life." Isn't that fun?

    Just Saturday night my husband brought home some wayward souls he met at the bar. I woke up from my tequila-induced coma just in time to meet Bo, Travis, Brent and Angela, who had been left up at the bar. They were very thankful for the hospitality, though I was mostly drunk and so probably not as hospitible as usual. Too bad you're in DC, or too bad I'm in California. I'd love to party with you guys!

  • At 12:47 PM , Blogger Kristin said...

    I had a great time! I love everyone and as much as I hated to leave, I'm glad I was in bed by midnight because the neighbors were tap-dancing, running and wrestling while making a big Sunday breakfast. Over my head. At 7 in the morning.

  • At 2:28 PM , Blogger James Burnett said...

    Well, you know I'm not in DC. But I will be at least twice over the summer for story projects I'm researching. I'll let you and Matt the Animal (Mind) know beforehand. Maybe South Florida can meet the Eastern Seaboard and sign a treaty over booze.

  • At 4:41 PM , Blogger EJ Takes Life said...

    lifeYou adorable girl! I had such a great time with you and your Matty and your two different shoes and your awesome hair. We def. need to hang out again soon!

  • At 5:13 PM , Blogger 123Valerie said...

    Guess, it is too bad. I also like to bring home strangers from the bar.

    Kristin, it's always fun with you, my dear. I'm glad one of us was sensible.

    James Burnett, you better believe we're going to meet up. Matty and I were just discussing this and he said, "Well, James wants to meet up with me while he's here. I guess you can come of James wants you to."

    I replied, "I'm coming regardless," so I'm glad you're on board. Much less awkward that way.

    EJ, I had a wonderful, wonderful time! I can't wait to see you all again, and I might even be wearing appropriate footwear. Maybe.

  • At 6:03 PM , Blogger Matt said...

    Valerie, I thought this was just going to be "James and Me" time. I mean, how we gonna score w/ chicks now?!

  • At 6:19 PM , Blogger 123Valerie said...

    How am I going to score hot chicks with you two goobers next to ME, Mattress?

  • At 11:12 AM , Blogger Lee said...

    Oh! I might be up for a MIRL but I can't meet Matt as I'm trying to convince him that I'm a fat hairy Swede.

    Also cannot drink bourbon unless you would really like to meet the fat hairy swede that lives in my intestines.

  • At 9:52 PM , Blogger 123Valerie said...

    Lee, I am flexible on the bourbon thing. I am less flexible about maintaining Matt's fantasies.

    If HE wants to believe you're a hairy, fat Swede, then we'll do our best. Would you mind wearing a burka to cover your hot Asianess?

  • At 10:01 PM , Blogger Lee said...

    I'm positive even a burka could not hide my hot asian-ness. ;)

    Anyway, I don't think Matt beleives me...I don't know why. I'm so genuine.

  • At 1:46 AM , Blogger James Burnett said...

    Sheesh, you two are both gonna keep me from scoring.

  • At 10:16 PM , Blogger 123Valerie said...

    Well, Lee Baby, when you got it you got it. Ain't no opressive garment stemming from a regime that disvalues equal rights gonna hold you down, meine kleine mousa.

    I wouldn't be too sure, James Burnett. I think Matty's pegged a skanky strip club for us. For $20 and a shot of Apple Pucker, those girls will detail your car if that's what you want them to do.
