IX Blogger Gathering With A Rather International Flavor..

Yes we had fun. Almost all the regulars were there and we can say in all assertiveness that a core group has been formed; one that is built on friendship and mutual respect.
After Linalone masterfully succeeded in convincing her neighbors that we had promised to keep it as quite as possible we GOT THE QUIET PARTY STARTED :)
We had people all the way from Chicago, Philadelphia and France (to name only a few..) and that only added to the already "chipsy" evening. Most bloggers came with their own chairs (Linalone's neighbors took away all her chairs in protestation).
Then, around midnight :) the party reached new levels of excitement with Beirut Spring's arrival. He was met with cheers as he was carrying wine and THE bottle opener!!! :))
Needless to say that you shall be hearing about this latest blogger gathering until the next meeting is held. But what I will always remember are the smiles and laughs of bloggers and friends alike, the kindness of Bastard's Child of Civilization and how BoB nearly fell asleep on his chair after being the life of the party (the Left part of it that is :P) almost all night.
Book dedications and autographs took place on the right hand side, as Arch Memory brought copies of his latest masterpiece for everybody ;) Cheers and claps were due! :))
After a long and eventful gathering, each returned home loaded with smiles and good memories. Thanks again Linalone and if you should need any help getting your chairs back, you know who to call.. :) (Still no clue?! Well, go Lebanon Profile's way!!!)
P.S: You will also read about this Gathering and more about Blogging in Lebanon soon in "Magazine". Will update you on that as soon as possible.
As for pics, I believe Zizou will be linking them to this post in one of his comments :) Everybody else who took pics is expected to do the same you hear!!!!
Peace all!!!!

Maldoror,

Ever the diplomat, you eagerly change the post to reveal the truth on behalf of one wronged. You didn't have to, but you did.

2007 has your name all over it. Hey, maybe us bloggers could get ourselves classified as a national political party and get a seat at the National Dialogue?
