What do you get when you combine a Social Worker, a political consultant, a stay at home mom, an attorney, and two people-who-do-computer-stuff-that-my-old-ass-can't-even-begin-to-give-a-title-to?
What do you get when these people are black, white, Asian, & Latina (I hope I didn't leave out a demographic)?
What do you get when you inject alcohol (and a really stupid, inattentive waitress) into that mix?
Before I tell you what you get, I'll give you a hint. The answer isn't: "a diversity training class" No, the true answer is: You get a whole lot of fun!
Last night, I got together with several of my blogging pals from around the DC metropolitan area, at a cool bar called The Continental, in Rosslyn, Virginia. In attendance were the bloggers behind Unquiet Heart, Parentopia, A Daily Dose of Zen, Lawyer Mama, and Mammaloves.
Before you roll your eyes about a bunch of bloggers who sat around and talked about their blogs and blah, blah, boredom, blah... trust me it was nothing like that. The subjects of discussion ranged from DUI traffic stops, to Internet porn, to breaking bones, kids, sex, music, and God only knows what else (those that were there can help me out), there were drinks, music, a new cast with no markers to sign it with, drinks, Crackberries, lots of pictures (which I imagine will start showing up online within the next 24-48 hours), and drinks.
We all had a good time, and those who missed... if you feel bad about it... well, you should, so next time we do this, plan to be there.
