Me and Lady B

by Lori Dwyer on August 1, 2010 · 14 comments


Meeting people you’ve only previously me online can be a bit risky, at times.

You know, sometimes you meet people off the Net and they are crazy obsessive kinda ugly creepy stalkers who just freak you right out (hi, Jay)?

Or they are completely different to how they came across, through the keyboard….?

Well, my lovely Brenda from MummyTime is neither of those things. She is just as lovely, funny, warm, friendly, clever, huggy and… well… squee!!! as she appears online. And we click with an audible clack.

The only thing I didn’t expect…? Well. B’s a shortie. Five foot two inches,  just like me. In fact, we could be freaking twins. As I said to her, she must just write much taller than that. Or something.

Here’s a piccie. I know, I know, it’s not great. Really can’t compete with YouTube footage. And Brenda’s doing her Shake-It-Like-A-Polaroid-Picture thing. But it’s the best of a bad bunch, OK? OK.

Oh, and did I mention I went to the movies…? No…? Yuhuh. Tinkerbell And The Great Fairy Rescue, review- and quite possible an un-crap giveaway-coming soon!

Oooooh, I want to meet the both of you! I've talked on Skype with Brenda, she's lovely. However, I may be a teensy bit taller than you both at 5"9.

I've met up with some 'virtual' friends & although it is scary on the journey there, they are such lovely people! Well they would be wouldn't they if you are chatting!

How awesome that you were fortunate enough to meet in person! You too look beautiful!

Jealousy ensues.

Yay for shorties ( 5'3 on a good day here )!
Also yay for internet meet ups. I've only had a few but they've mostly been good – especially the one thats seen me end up with a wonderful fiance and gorgeous son!

Looks like fun! I have tagged both you and Brenda in a meme at my site, if you are into that sort of thing! I am still linking to people for crying out loud so it'll be a few minutes!


Wanderlust August 2, 2010 at 12:04 am

How fun! I can't wait until I have a chance to meet you both in person!


Tina August 2, 2010 at 12:01 am

SO jealous that you guys had the chance to meet :)Next time, gadget, next time!

I just watched your Magic Trick on MummyTime – very cool!

As i said on Brenda's blog it must be great to actually meet someone you kind of feel like you already know. I picture many of the people in the blogosphere as still images (like their avatars) so it is nice to know people can actually move around and talk and stuff!

Looking forward to hearing about Tinkerbell soon!

How fun, to meet a fellow blogger!


Brenda August 1, 2010 at 9:28 pm

As I've said! Great Big Things come in Small Tiny Packages. Ahem. And WTF am I doing? Hehehe.
