I shit you not, I totally used to say that to my mom. It never worked, but I still submit to you that it is a VALID argument. Goes hand in hand with my other mottos -- for problem solving: "ignore it and hope it goes away," for work: "Why the hell would you do your own work if you can (a) find someone else dumb enough to do it for you; and/or (b) find someone who has already done it before and just copy/paste and change happy to glad." which totally goes hand in hand with my other Life- lesson to live by: "if it ain't broke, don't fix it!"
THEREFORE, I clearly know what I am saying when I say that this might be fun - or could be hideously awkward and ruin everything -- could go either way.
So you know how I'm coming home to DC for a TDY (temporary duty - I've really been remiss in my acronym educational program lately) in July, right?? Well...it has been suggested (and I have agreed to this suggestion) that we try to meet up. (In DC of course because that is convenient to me and I'm waay to lazy to go anywhere else and (inherent in the TDY part of my trip) I have to work while I'm there. I KNOW, Outrage, right?)
As such, I was thinking we should meet up at the Cheesecake Factory in Tyson's Corner, VA (which is right outside of DC not too far from Dulles Airport) - because it has always been a dream of mine -- not to really meet you guys, but to go to Cheesecake Factory again!
I've already made plans to meet a few of the ones who live in DC, but thought I would open it up to others if they happen to be in the neighborhood at that time too. PLUS, this particular Cheesecake Factory happens to be located in the Galleria Mall (which I like to call the Gucci mall because it houses places like Needless Markup (Neiman Marcus) and some other stores that when I walk in, the sales lady hovers to make sure I don't try to touch any of the merchandise. HOWEVER, right across the street is Tysons I - for my people. The poor people on a government salary.
Minoy has already agreed to go as well - and even though she doesn't have her own blog - she does like to post her blogs in my comment section. What's not to love!?!
So come on! We'll have our own little blog-camp; a pre-BlogHer event. All the cool kids are doing it!!!
Sometimes? I'm Judgmental. Also, Seattle!
