Meeting of the stalkers minds

On Friday - I met my second blogger. Earlier this month I met Nissa. And now I can add one more to my collection. In a completely non-stalkerish way. Sort of. And that would be Angie from Angie's Spot. We easily fell into conversation. And into peals of laughter.

Ummm...Angie...what DID we talk about? Yes, it was one of those great meeting of the minds - where we laughed, talked, watched you tube videos, shopped, talked, laughed some more - and even though no drugs were consumed. Well, no hard core ones anyway. I can't recall the conversations. Except that they were fun. And I can't wait to do it again.

Before Angie left, I put my husband in charge of snapping a photo. Naturally, there were rules. No hips. And no double chins. Does anyone know how to photoshop out double chins? What about big hips? Not being so savvy...I decided the trick is to stick out your chest. And pretend that you have a giraffe neck. Natural, no?See...Angie..."antics" with Kat may cause memory loss. What do you think? Does black and white make us look thinner?

And I am already planning my third meeting! With Shannon from Welcome to the Nut house. Shannon - do you think that a random stranger will be able to take a picture of us - AND follow the rules?

And so...today...rather than ending my post with a series of questions for you to answer in the comment section - I thought you might let me know if you have any questions for me. Which I'll answer in a future post. But I can't tell you when. Because I don't know. I procrastinate that way.

Love the song choice! I'm laughing again!

It was a great meeting of the minds and I too can't remember what we talked about really. I just know that I can't wait to get together again. :-)

And yes, black (and white) is very slimming. LOL!

Shannon said...

Yes, I have a "no hips" rule when I am having my picture taken, too. And I have yet to perfect the giraffe neck thing. Probably why I take the pics, not pose for them.


WOO HOO!!! I am soooooo excited about our meeting. But I'm sure you couldn't tell that, huh? How many more days??? ;)

I have a "no me" rule in pics. My kids albums are full of them and dad.

I would so love to have some bloggy hook ups!

I have an aunt in Dunwoody. I need to come visit!!!

Twisted Fencepost said...

Sound like so much fun!!!
The best trick I have found for "double chin", have to picture taker hold the camera up high so you are looking up at the camera.
Good luck!

Britt said...

Totally got me cracking up at the 'Add one more to my collection' line .. Nope, it's not creepy that you keep a collection of bloggers. Not at all ;o)

Great pictures!

Swirl Girl said...

the best way to get rid of the double chin is never look down ....on anything!

Kelly said...

How very cool!! I was a bit jealous (;) when I heard you all were getting together this weekend! Glad you had a great visit!!

Insane Mama said...

I'm jealous, I have yet to meet a blogging friend. I have a question, what is your smuttiest book???

Debbie said...

Great pics!!! Let me think on a question. I know that I have had one or two about you and kept forgetting to ask it.

SITS Girls said...

How fun!

If you had a son, what would you have named him?

Lula! said...

But where was the, "Before meeting up with Angie, I looked at cheesy French commercials on You Tube with Lula and cracked up" shoutout?

Dude.

Love the pictures. I have more chins than Chinatown. It's why I rarely take pictures. UGH! But y'all are looking sassy and sexy.

A question for you...hmmmmmm...

Are you going to be super-psycho-involved when Lost returns in 134 days? Because I will be...and I need to gather my obsessive peeps around me at that time.

Oh, I have another--but it's for Michael: What's your favorite imported beer? Domestic?

Shannon said...

ACK! I completely forgot about the ask you questions part... I will have to think of some and come back... again!

KimmyJ said...

I'm jealous, I want to meet you and our other friends in person. You look awesome in B&W and color and because I know how to follow directions.....ummmmmm....

What is your favortie book of all times?

Brian and Staci said...

Once again...SOOOO jealous! Meeting with TWO bloggy friends! I think you guys looks great and WHAT fun! A slight head tilt takes care of the double chin thingy too...I've learned :) (But then, all the skin is just crumpled up on ONE side of the face instead of evenly distributed throughout the second chin :( I'm gonna have to think of a question for ya, I shall return....but I gotta get these kiddoes off to school :)

Brian and Staci said...

Sheesh! Why don't I learn to proofrea???? Not "looks"...just look great!

Brian and Staci said...

Okay...I'm just gonna give up today...I MEANT PROOFREAD not proofrea! OH MY GOODNESS!! If this is any indication of how the day is going to go...I might as well go back to bed!

Hot Tub Lizzy said...

Here's my question. What are you doing SUnday afternoon?

Rhea said...

I can't believe I missed this post yesterday! Oh, that's right, the second part of my day was not so hot...me battling diarrhea in carpool lines and football practice and some family drum workshop. blah.

I'm so jealous you two met! I love the pictures! Your smiles are PERFECT! :o)

Rhea said...

Holy crap, your post isn't all I missed yesterday. When did Shannon pass me up on Top Commenter?! That's just WRONG. Watch out, here I come!

One Wired Woman said...

Where have you been lately? :)
How are you?
How do I add that Top Commentor thing?

I've missed you girl!! Love those cute photos of you and Angie above. Meeting blog buddies is fun. I'm still thinking about planning a blog girl's weekend in San Antonio.

Jill :)

Jill said...

What fun!!! I love meeting with other bloggers... yay for you.

And the photos of y'all are great! When you figure out a way to get rid of double chins and such - please let me know.

Shannon said...

I came back with some questions for you :)

What was your favorite Halloween costume as a kid?

What are your fave pizza toppings?

What do you think is your best feature?

Do you have any phobias? What are they?

What is your fave day of the week and why?

Shannon said...

And I can't see your Top Commenter widget! I can't see Angie's either... don't know if it has something to do with me having a Mac?!?

But I've passed Rhea?!?!?!? Go Shannon! Go Shannon!

Susie said...

I think you both look great!!

Nissa said...

I'm so jealous! I feel like you're cheating on me! :)

It's awesome that you're meeting lots of bloggy friends IRL, and I totally love the B&W shot!

Jennifer P. said...

Jennifer P. said...

Jennifer P. said...

Am I back on that list yet?

Rhea said...

I can't believe how many bloggers you're getting to meet!! I'm so jealous.

Then again, I'll have my turn in April. hehe

Karen said...

My hubby was playing around with a program that altered one's appearance ... can't remember what it was called though, I'll haveto ask him...

Looks like you were both having a grat time!!!

Rhea said...

So, Angie gets to meet you twice. NO FAIR!!
