[100 things about me]

the first rule of blogorama is…
that you must post about blogorama.

the singular julian was kind enough to organize a blogorama get-together for dc area blogger-type people. so, hats off to julian…and to his purple crushed velvet suit.

the second, only slightly lesser known rule of blogorama is that if sid says that he’s going to meet you a half-block away from the bar and you’re going to go in together – naked – you shouldn’t wait naked outside in the cold night air for him, because he’s not coming.

the third, even-slightly-lesser-known-than-the-second rule of blogorama is that if you want to be a pimp, you need to always ask yourself: wwvjd? velvet jones would have made sure i got andrew’s contact info. come on, man…step up your game. i’m in a slump. i need a professional pimp here. [ed. note: sorry my total tech dorkness led to the annihilation of your entire post today. egad.]

the fourth and…oh, you get it, and i’m tired of typing it…rule of blogorama is that it’s really funny to say “that’s how i met my woman…er, my girlfriend…i mean, my wife.” as long as your wife isn’t there.

fifth: you can still flirt with a girl, even if she’s sitting on a couch. seriously.

in the interest of time, and in the interest of not worsening my carpal tunnel syndrome, let me just say that i had a great time at blogorama, and met some terrific folks, a few of whom are listed here:

the wasylik clan: mike, his lovely wife dineen, and the most amazingly well-behaved baby on the planet, alex.

the dynamic duo: tiffany and tom

the tattoo-less [for now] wolfgang norton

the amazing andrew. whose sense of humor is every bit as good as his hair. i hope.

the infamous lex. [having met him, i think the stories might be true.]

and, of course, the new kid on the block, matt. who is the best cheerleader a girl could ever hope to have.
