On meeting the Legal Alien

…otherwise known as R.Bit.

Yesterday I managed to cross off one more thing from my 30 by 30 list. Meeting a fellow blogger. The Legal Alien was down in Sydney this week for work purposes and asked if I’d like to meet up. And given that we are so freakishly alike in the way we think, I grabbed the opportunity to meet her.

We met up in the city at Pitt Street mall (or now, the new big Westfields) in the arvo and had lunch and a coffee and basically, just talked for a couple of hours. It felt like I’d known her for years even though prior to yesterday, we’d never met or spoken to each other apart from commenting on each others blogs and occasionally emailing. As always, we found out about other freaky things in common. Like for instance, her sister’s birthday is a day after mine while her birthday is on the same day as my sister’s! Funnily enough, one of the things we hardly spoke about was blogging. But I suppose we did talk about issues we tend to blog about.

The two hours yesterday just seemed to whizz past. There were no uncomfortable silences. Prior to meeting her, I did wonder what would happen if there were those uncomfortable silences…or what if we had nothing to talk about. All those worries were obviously quashed.

It was great to finally meet you R. Bit. Now if only you could re-start blogging! 🙂

Until next time,

    I have spoken to a couple fellow bloggers on the telephone but never met anyone in person. That must have been cool.

      I’ve never even spoken to fellow bloggers Michael…emailed a few and maybe just two or three regulars know my real name…but that’s about it. So this was a big step! It was really cool though to meet a fellow-blogger! 🙂
