Housewarming Callalillie's

POST #    619

This evening, Corie was having a housewarming/jump the cable guy party at her new apartment in Park Slope. It was a gathering of her friends, co-workers, and blog friends - a group that I fall into. It was gracious of her to invite Rachelle and me to her party, despite never actually meeting us. For me, it was a tad awkward at first. While, I know a little about Corie by reading and commenting on her site, I still didn't know what to expect. I'm happy to report that her housewarming party was a lot of fun and it was nice to meet the people that are mentioned on her site.

Later on during the party, Dahlia and Sam showed up. Now, this was even more weird for me, it wasn't just Rachelle and me that was part of the "blog crowd," but it was a group of four people. When someone asks what your name is and what site you are associated with, it's a tad strange, but I guess it just takes a little getting used to. Perhaps at the next Gothamist Happy Hour, I should introduce myself as "" or would it be "tien -"? Hmm...things to think about.

Anyway, a big thanks to Corie for inviting me tonight, and for the sushi and excellent cookies.

It isn't just how your introduce yourself as Tien, or, it is the very cute little way you tilted your head down, and scrunched your neck as if you were sheepish about saying your blog site. Maybe video tape would be necessary to show all the people how you did that, but sadly I didn't take any. It was great to meet you, and get to know you, even if you were going to kidnap my future site. Looking forward to more interactions with you....

rachelle is short & sweet on the party because she was up at 3 am and can't be expected to form full sentences at that hour.
