We're Back

Now it can be told that I and four of my blogging compatriots (Mrs. Harridan, Teebs, Arabella and Mignon) invaded the fair city of Savannah, Georgia over the long weekend for the B-List Blogfest and are now (along with the city itself) in need of a very long nap.

There was much talking and eating and reading blogs on laptops and walking over the cobblestoned streets as well as gawking at the awesomely preserved historical buildings and taking pictures of said well as of each other. Much of this was accomplished, of course, in a mildly "lubed" state due to whatever refreshing...uh...lubricant was available, and might I say that those margaritas at the haunted Mexican restaurant were just lovely!

Here's a picture of our feet after an enormous dinner...and some wine.

There's just no place like a cemetery to make you think about calling up friends (Debbie and Shrinking Violet) and tormenting them for not being there with you.

Which feet are yours? the light colored flip flops right?

Sounds like fun!!

I'm envious. Of the rest of them.

That is so awesome! I've never met any of my blogging friends IRL, what an adventure. :)

Actually...I'm taking the picture, so the feet directly below (jeans and black flip-flops) are mine. Mignon's are just to the left.

was the foot photo inspired by well-lubrication?

Sounds like you all had a blast. Maybe you guys should start an official B-List Blogfest and give Blogher a run for it's money.
Those are some cute feet!

Love the feet but would love captions as to whose are who's.

I'm sick that you were able to have fun without me!! Just think how much more fun next year will be!!

It was an unbelievably good time. I think my system is still working off the margaritas--I just poured sugar on my foot instead of in my tea.

P.S. I'm the black pants and sandals with the horizontal strap across the feet in the upper right.

Thanks again for such a great trip everyone. Wordgirl was a perfect roomate and I can't wait to do it again next year.

I'm the jeans and black sandals with the bow.

I feel like I miss everyone already. My husband and children were a sight for sore eyes, but today everything is so quiet, and my kids just don't offer the same kind of entertainment. It was wonderful, wasn't it?

Thanks a lot Nilbo. You're right though, of course. Wordgirl is a gem.

(That last picture has caused me to throw those jeans in the trash...)

I'm trying to play "guess who" with the last photo. If that's you taking it, then I'm guessing right to left is Mignon, then Teebs, then Arabella, then Mrs. Harridan?

Savannah looks beautiful. I love old cemeteries.

Ooo, I've always wanted to go to Savannah, and a haunted Mexican restaurant sounds intriguing!

girlfriends and margaritas are always a winning combination. Glad you all had a great time.

fabulous! it would appear that you all had a groovy time. welcome back.

but ... I must confess, I've been aching for you to return and write some more of your hauntingly lovely prose.

There is no such thing as a B-list blogfest. Wherever you are, that's the a list. Or at least how me and my tiny little ego would like to think of it...

Awww, I'm jealous.

Blogger Nilbo said...

Ahh, Mignon, I wondered about that right after I hit "publish". But I decided it's true. I am envious of all you guys. And I think Wordgirl got a pretty good deal too. The two ideas can co-exist, at least in my world.

Oh, by the way, WG .. the swimmer's shoulders? Hawt.

I'm glad you had a good time and are back safe-n-sound!

Sounds awesome - hardly B list, except i do like the idea of a parallel between b-movies and b-blogs.

Anyway. Awesome!
