Breaking News: West Chester Bloggers Meet At Barnaby's.


Another That Blue Yak meetup has happened! I've revealed myself to another human. Here's how it when down:

- I decided after a long day of being fabulous that I would stop in the Barnaby's in West Chester to wet my whistle with a Sam Adams. A reward if you will.

- I alert the world that I am in Barnaby's Pub and that bloggers are welcome to join me. I do this via Twitter. Kimmie, a local blogger that I've been wanting to meet for ages reads this on Twitter that is temporarily located on my blog and she signs up for Twitter.

- I take this as a code and send her an email telling her I'm still at Barnaby's.

- All of a sudden, who do I see walking in the bar? A petite, foxy blond woman - looking around. It's Kimmie. I say, "Kimmie, are you looking for me? I'm Dr Zibbs". (see staged reaction above)

And talk about a surreal 30 seconds. I've been commenting on her blog for a year and vice versa and we finally meet. She was exactly what I thought she'd be like. Super nice, really sweet and totally interesting to talk to. And even more beautiful in person. We talked about food, blogging, me. All the important stuff.

I actually blushed a bit at first as I was saying, "Yes, it's me - Dr Zibbs". And I was giggling like a school girl for a while too. Even I can feel humble. Me. Overall, a great meeting and we plan to keep in touch. What a great time meeting a fellow blogger. Who will be next? Maybe it will be you - or you (getting right in your face and whispering) or even YOU!

You'll have to check out her blog today because she said she will be telling you all about a day that I think might be one of the best of her life.

I'm just guessing.

And not to make Words, Words, Words jealous, but you were discussed. I wish you were there brother. We talked about the dish you made the other night that was based on her recipe.

*Pouts and mutters about "stoopid favouritism"*

So when ARE you coming to England?

HUH?

Dr Zibbs said...

Girl I - Someday. I used to go to Stratford Upon Avon all the time. Where do you live?

Girl Interrupted said...

I'm in Norfolk, on the east coast

It's not a very "happening" place tbh

J. Hi said...

Is she squealing in delight or screaming with terror? ;)

Avitable said...

If you ever come to Orlando, let me know.

I was actually in Barnaby's Pub at the same time, but I kept my head down and just watched you giggle...

Do you remember a suspicious looking guy with a black fedora pulled low over his brow?

Cora said...

You're meeting me next, you say? ME?! Well, spank my ass and make me blush! When? WHEN?!?!

;-)

Cora said...

@ Girl Interrupted: I have family in Norfolk. Small world!

Kimmie's recipes are great, and her photos are appetizing.

Glad you had a fun encounter with a fellow blogger. It's good to step out of the Matrix once in a while.

I wish I were there, too! I hope that you and the lovely Kimmie eventually found better things to talk about than me.

Blogger meet-ups like these always warm my heart.

Peggy said...

How fun for you!

Cameron said...

That is one lucky girl. The closest I've gotten to Zibbsy is crouching low in the bushes outside his house. That and digging thru That Blue Yak's garbage on garbage day.

Debbie said...

I still haven't met any of my blogging friends in real life. But I hope to soon.

Jeannie said...

Hell, I don't even know where Westchester is and I'd have to cross a border and all that so you're gonna have to get through life without me.

I'm sure you're real upset about it.

Dr Zibbs said...

J Hi- good on.

Avitable - will do.


WWW - after we stopped talking about you it got really silent.

Phat Mama said...

Ego & arrogance, so sexy! LOL

Completely jealous of Kimmie, of course but she's lovely in that photo.

Now where is the pic of you?!

Dr Zibbs said...

Phat Mama - I try. As for the photo of me. I sent it to you but it bounced back.

Kimmie said...

my post is up!

Dr Zibbs said...

Excellent.

Fancy Schmancy said...

Wow, sounds like fun!

Anti-Zibs said...

Zibbs,
What does your wife think of your after work "I deserve a beer" antics. I looked up this Barneby's joint and it appears to have some gay-pride happy hour there on Tuesday's. Mmmm??

Philly said...

Zibbs, my pool is opening in a month or so. I say you bring the fam up and meet #1.
Always love to have company.

I promise we are normal. Well, most of us anyways.

And maybe it will encourage #2 to come for a visit.

Dr Zibbs said...

Philly - we'll have to email privately. If I give the OK here there might be a bunch of helicopter over you house trying to zoom in on my huge package.

Miss Alex said...

Ok ok that's it...what's a girl to do? what? tell me zibbs what? I'm fun... I'm cute damn it i'm not blonde but i'm cute! And unlike most of your other bloggesr I am will to make an ass of myself *cause I generally do that for fun anyway*

What if I wear a red tutu? Although I think that might be much for just a laz bar in Westchester... I make some slammin browies?

Shall I call you and sing? I'm pretty awful but I'll do it... Name your price man!
