Where's Bou?

Austin, my friends, Austin.

I am in Austin this weekend at a blogmeet, where I will meet some Jawja bloggers, some Texas bloggers, and bloggers from neither place. And of course I'll be meeting up with some bloggers I already know... folks who are quickly becoming good friends of mine and whose company I love to keep.

So that is where I am this weekend. We start with The Salt Lick for BBQ on Friday night and then go from there. I'm a bit nervous of course. I never know what people expect when they meet me.

I don't know if they expect some tall svelte beautiful amazon woman... even though I always say I am not.

Or some extroverted witty and sharp woman... of which I am not. 'Tis easy to put one out there in writing. Editing... it's a beautiful thing. In person, depending on my comfort level, I can be very quiet and just observe.

Although I do laugh a lot.

I always wonder if I will disappoint. And of course there will be a ton of people who have never heard of my blog, and that's totally cool with me as we all know... I blog for me. It's my catharsis.

And it is very funny that when I get to blogmeets, people actually call me Bou. I come to both names now. It feels like my name. That's how they know me and it has become a very comfortable skin of mine.

So y'all take care. Have a good weekend and hopefully I'll have some tall Texas tales for y'all come Sunday night... or Monday.

Bou: Disappointing her brother since 1967.

Oh that's just lovely... Nothing like having a fan club! Bah! Be nice to me or I won't get you a T-shirt, which, BTW, is what Bones requested.

Bones wants you to get me a t-shirt?

Hell no. He wants me to get HIM one. I think he needs one with a big State of TX since he's so big in his own mind.

BTW, I'm not finished blogging. So don't log off. I have a big post coming up about Mom and Dad.

Can't wait to see you again, Bou! We'll have a great time...and don't worry about disappointing anyone. You won't.

You will never disappoint. Just surprise... sorta like when some people came down from Connecticut and found out I was only 5 ft tall... It amazed me how 3 different people who had seen me via the teleconference couldn't believe I was only 5 foot tall. ;-)

VW- You're only 5 feet tall?! Holy crap! I thought you were a giant like me!! LOL! ;-)

I hope you have a wonderful time!! (Hell, I *know* you'll have a wonderful time...) :)

Bou - you is a gen-u-wine sweetheart, witty and intelligent - and extroverted enough to stand up to an army of Blown-Star Blodgers without being Over the Top. Not to mention a connoisseur of Gourmet Cuisine. Pancakes...bananas...
