London Blog Meet

Hi I'm Annie from the London Underground Blog

Was what I said quite a few times last night at my
second bloggers party. It was a great shame it was on a school night as I'd have loved to have stayed longer. I arrived at 8pm and when I next looked at my watch it was twenty to eleven, so I thought shit I'd better make a move.

I'm pretty tired and about to go to bed now but it was really, really good to talk to a lot more people that I didn't manage to speak to from the last party at Xmas (there are comments in that post even if it looks like there aren't) - Dave (or Cornelius as he insisted on calling himself) from Acerbia (he also insisted on showing half the room his new back tattoo which is from the design on the front page of his site) - Pix (Anne) from Pixeldiva and Anna (fellow Bloggie nominee - we wuz robbed)) from Little Red Boat who celebrated her birthday on the night and was given a load of signed escort girl calling cards from us all (Belle De Jour would have been proud) and treated to a rousing rendition of "Happy Birthday".

Nice to meet Darren again from the brill timemachinego - who I spoke to a lot at the last party but didn't manage too much at this one.

Also great to get a very warm welcome from the fantabulous campaigning Tim of Bloggerheads and pleased to meet in the flesh for the first time bloggers whose sites I regularly visit - Dave from funkypancake (and his friend Grahame), Matt Robinson (with bearded friend Bruce), Natalie - Blaugustine, Tom from Random Reality (my friend Matt will be delighted) and Mark from Londonmark.

It was fun and quite flattering to meet regular readers like Simon from minor 9th, Josephine and Sashinka, who made a point of finding me to say how much they like this blog.

And kind of embarrassing to meet Paul whose magazine London News Review I had publically slagged off some time ago - but I must say that I've remained loyal to the email newsletter London by London which Paul is now in control of since his split from the magazine.

Well done to James Cox for organising it. Getting way over 50 bloggers together was no mean feat especially in the middle of the week.

Apologies if I spoke to you and didn't give you a name check. Off to bed now.
