I finally got to meet a bunch of these women, and it was a most fun time. I’m afraid of leaving someone out if I start talking about all the nice things I like about everyone, so I just am going to list the links to their blogs. And then, I will work to read and comment, because that’s part of what we are supposed to do as bloggers. I’m sure there’s some kind of etiquette book (or, more likely, blog) in the works somewhere out there.
I am not sure if I will ever figure out what Twitter or Plurk are all about. There only so many hours in a day, and I need my sleep!
In the meantime, here are the women I met on Friday. I can’t wait to meet more! (Oh, and someday I will be organized enough and have the time to actually get you all on the blogroll too.)
And because I have already met her once, here’s the link to Gina’s blog, My Very Last Nerve.
I also heard tell of Pittsburgh bloggers who are not mommies. What animal is this? Perhaps I will be so fortunate to meet some of these people too!
Adding to the list
I recently met (or, in one case, re-met?) two other Pittsburgh mom bloggers.
Just met Mary at Clumberkim’s get together last month.
JenniferC at Masquerading as a Normal Person is a Duquesne alumnae, also. I remember her as a bit more quiet in college, but becoming a mom brings out the outspoken in all of us! I recall her husband as a very sarcastic, funny guy. I hope I get to meet Miss O soon, because I would love to see that mix in action!
January 30, 2009 Dinner
I did not get to talk to everyone at this dinner as a result of a) getting there late and b) being seated at a long table. But there were some new faces there — including Atom Heart Father’s cutie patutie son.
We are getting to be quite a group!
My friend Jen Z, who is a mommy but not a blogger — yes, there is such a creature — was quite the hit. ClumberKim wants to podcast her. Jen Z did tell a funny story about her husband buying a house that had ClumberKim in literal tears with laughter.
March 27 Dinner at Church Brew Works
Generally, I like the Church Brew Works. The food has always been good; the beer is usually decent.
The wait, however, was horrible. Apparently the Church and the Burgh Moms do not quite agree on the definition of reservations. The Burgh Moms think it means there will be a table ready when we get there; the Church thinks it means, there will be a table ready when they say there’s a table ready. And they changed something in the Pipe Organ Pale Ale that made it taste like a Belgian ale. I am not crazy about Belgian ales.
However, a delightful time was had by all. LadyD (of One Damn Thing) came early, and left before dinner for a concert; and Woycheck (of Have a Good Sandwich and WearPittsburgh fame) came late, but gets major props for being the sole male hanging out with the Burgh Moms. Other attendees (links above) were Gina, BurghBaby, Allison, Jayesel, Jennifer C, and Kelly.
Oh, and Teresa, who is the newest mom of the Burgh Moms to date, her daughter only being about 12 weeks old. TTG, as she calls herself online, had to run out on dinner because of a family emergency. Despite being told to be careful, she managed to slip and break her pinky. The good news is that everyone is doing well, and the pinky will heal just fine. I hope the next time she decides to join us, she will have much less drama!
July 14, 2009
I decided to change the name of this page to, simply, Burgh Bloggers, and here’s why. I am meeting many bloggers and Twitterers who are not moms or dads. (Yet.) In the next few days I will try to get a comprehensive blogroll up, and update it as I meet people.
