Blogger Meeting Evolution :)
Yes I was there, but not exactly there... I was at another "there" than most of you! That day coincided with my blog's first birthday :P (happy birthday blog!)
Globalisation is the key word!
I had said earlier that I would try to join my people in the same meeting, listen to their problems and try to lift their spirits up... I had also said that I would do my best but fate stood in the way! But I will be back! :)
I could only hold a meeting with my fellow blogger and close friend Delirious :) We met at ABC Achrafieh in a very traditional Italian restaurant, and we were surrounded by famous people; namely Dina Azar! (Former Miss Lebanon).
Politics was never on our menu as we talked about everything bothering us and we tried hard to cheer each other up! Needless to say that it was a complete success as both of us laughed our behind's off inventing stories like the one saying that Miss Azar had an immediate crush on me :P (How can she resist me with only a day after St Valentine's?! :P) That was dreamy...
P.S: Miss Azar!!!! I would vote for you should you decide to enter that competition again! Would you vote for me if I ran for presidency!? :P
P.S: Oupsssss....Intelligence from the other meeting (that was solely discussing political issues) informed me that I can't... Miss Azar, best regards!
Bite after bite, Deli and I remembered our blogging experience and wished my blog a happy birthday for the sixth time! :P (I also wished her blog all the success away from predators and politicians :P) (At that precise moment, we entered in contact with the other meeting thanks to modern technology and we exchanged best wishes too! We even had the chance to participate in the lively debates by sending our greetings to everybody present!)
As soon as our dinner ended, the waitress lit a candle on our table! She said it was in memory of all the departed. We had a thought for them, too! Then, we walked through the oh so crowded ABC mall and ended up trying to choose a film to watch. But, time flew and it was already 10h30 p.m! We had been there for three and a half hours! So, we just shut down all connection previously established with the second meeting at Gemmayze and wished each other a pleasant trip back home!
P.S: We strongly recommend that Italian restaurant to all of us next time :) The food is great and you get to mingle with... you know who :P among others :)
All in all, the experience of the dual-based meetings was a success. All we needed was a giant screen so we could really live every moment with each other :)
We bid our fellow "cream of the crop" bloggers (Is that like a new front or party?! Like the A.P.I.B.M.F or the IRA :P) goodbye for now, and until next time we wish you safety and loads of fun! But be warned next time, you will have to put up with us :P:P
