Last night I travelled from my fair city to the 'burbs of Acton, MA. I've loved living in Boston but being out in the open makes me want to breath in the "country" air and leave the city, forever. The trip only takes about 45 minutes. Add in a few harrowing moments on the expressway while I try to stuff my face with Shredded Wheat (dinner) AND talk on the cell phone (catching up) and you've got a seat gripping experience. I'm not so smart sometimes.
I was motivated by the destination. Stephanie, the Yarn Harlot, would be there. Kathy and I had been discussing this event for a few weeks. I almost showed up LAST Tuesday. Wouldn't that have been a blast?! I figured Kathy would be the only one that I knew. Then Debbie piped in that she would be there. Phew, two people that I knew.
Little did I know that The Gaggle of Knitters Who Blog (TGKWB) would be there. I walked in and spotted Kathy right away. Kathy had sent me her Lawyer Picture earlier in the day. She looked very lawyerly in the picture. In real life, well, she looks like a normal person. I lean over the bookcase to tap her on her shoulder and I see Claudia's back...a closer look and Laurie's back is there too....an even closer look and there is Kristen's back....and then I feel movement to my side. Kellee is there. And Kathy introduces me to Carole, and then Claudia introcudes Sandy. And Kellee and I spot Debbie.
And suddenly I am surrounded by friends. Again.
TGKWB may change depending on the day, the location, and the time. But one thing is for sure, no matter who is present in person - There will be laughing.
I mean, the cheese is so cheesy here you might think I'm a mouse or something.
Am I the only one that found the item to the right of Stephanie's head a happy accident? I couldn't stop giggling.
Debbie may try to tell you that we went out for Drinky Drinks. Actually, we went out for Drink. See the sign, "Steaks, Seafood, Sandwiches, and Drink." Singular.
