I love when bloggers meet. Some of the coolest, smartest, funnest people I've met in the last 10 years or so have been a result of some kind of interweb interaction. Back when I was in grad school, it was an email list that eventually resulted in the creation of the Scary Feminists from Hell--the finest group of women and friends a girl could ever ask for.
Since diving into the world of blogging, I've gone to a few blogger meet-ups, but none as superior as the one I attended on Friday evening. Some of the folks I met, I've been reading for a while. Others are new to me, but we were all brought together by the fabulous Lacochran. She assembled a fine group of D.C.-area bloggers and a grand time was had by all. If you're looking for new, excellent reading material, please read these blogs (I promise, you won't be disappointed.)

Nice meeting everyone! Let's get together again soon.
* Whom I've met previously at another blogger meet-up. (And this time we found out we have a mutual connection: Madame Meow's mother and I went to the same graduate school!) Great seeing you again, Madame!
