I now had to (and really wanted to) find other bloggers like me (you know….AWESOME!) to reach out to, mostly for blogger moral support. One of the first sites I came upon when I moved to SF was The Off Beat Report, a fantastically written blog by my new friend @Lauren_Hannah. No, I don’t refer to her as @-Lauren-Hannah, but before you actually meet someone it’s really the only truthful thing you know about them! (Twitter don’t lie!!) She probably thought I was a crazy stalker person (I don’t blame her) which is why we hadn’t actually… ACTUALLY met, like in real life, until a few weeks ago at a TEQUILA Tweetup.

AWKWARD!) and went to a Giants game together. We dragged along some boys (I’m guessing mostly because there was still that 3% chance that I might kill her with an overdose of garlic fries) and headed to the ball game. We drank beer, ate a copious amount of garlic fries, stalked the amazing hair color of the girl sitting in front of us, and even made fun of each other (which is a sign of friendship in my book) (who wants a friend who can’t take a little criticism!?!)(NOT ME!)(P.S. Soooooo, baseball doesn’t have any kind of de-fense going on?)(Oh, right! That’s basketball)(OK, I’m done with all the parentheses)(Wait!)(Ok, now!)

Except it sucked because apparently WE are Rockies fans and they lost (BIG TIME!) so we went to drink our sorrows away at 21st Amendment, along with everyone and their MOM! Oh Yea, and @NJudah, another one of my blog crushes (a.k.a. Greg from N-Judah Chronicles. Yes, he has a real name!) Great Day. Great people. The End.
I’m coming up on my 1 year blog anniversary. After ACTUALLY face-to-face meeting so many of my favorite bloggers and Twitter-ers (@Lauren_Hannah, @NJudah, @NicoleisBetter, @JamieVaron, @JulieMichelle, @cuffington, @marycray, @munidiaries, @juliamw, @jennysf, @batfishlighting, @ccswiss, @CitysearchSF, @yelpsf, @thepoetrystore, @chipmonkey, @sfBirdie, @troy, @femALEist just to name a few) I’m really feeling the love. I ♥ you all, and if we haven’t met yet, lets make a date (not a creepy one!)
P.S. Lauren and I got awesome tans on Saturday that I just have to share with you! The heart shaped tan on my knee totally fits my ish. And, I guess, Lauren is a farmer!
