I'm here at Tryst with all the bloggers.

I got here late and found just about the last seat, next to Stephen Warley of Lost Remote.

See anyone you know?

Great looking (food) spread and flowers.

What's the buzz?

Ron said...

Yow! Ann, that third pic! Can ya hook a fellow blogger up with the young lady right gobsmack in the middle there? The blog karma would definitely come back to you! I'd never call your shoes clogs again!

Find out the general opinion as to politicians’ awareness of the importance of blogs, now and even more so in future elections.

Bloggers naturally think that blogs are important. But do top bloggers think politicians are finally catching on to the importance of blogs in elections?

Harry Reid has a new YouTube spot up thanking Democratic bloggers for their help this election cycle. He also makes a point of saying that blogs will be even more important, hugely important, in future elections.

Saw the setup on CNN and, indeed, the food looks good and the atmosphere cozy, if crowded.

Hey, I think they just showed a full screen shot of you! Deep red dress, black-framed glasses?

Edward said...

You could ask Duncan Black of Atrios if he really thinks Republicans are evil, as he claims in a recent post on his blog.

How can he stand to be in the same room with Republican bloggers if he’s so sure all Republicans are evil?

Also, try to find a Republican blogger who thinks all Democrats are evil. There must be one like that in the room.

Chivalry: I'd have purposefully arrived late to see which male blogger gives up his seat for you.

And if none of them had, then they would face the consequences of being trashed in your blog.

Peace, Maxine

Who has the coolest laptop?

The DairyStater in me is compelled to say that I don't see cheese in the spread of food!

AllenS said...

Hey, screw all of this politics crap, he see adult beverages being served. I want a report on fornication between the bloggers.

Oy. I don't have a television and I subscribed to Pipeline five minutes ago. When does this come on there?

Please tell Charles Johnson
"joewilson" said hi!

George said...

I would be so very cheesed off if there were no Diet Coke there.

Can't do no bloggin' without no Diet Coke.

ginabina said...

Hey...can someone post the link where we can follow this blogstock? Is it only available on CNN pipeline?

Mark said...

No offense, but so far this scene you're part of tonight seems ridiculous. A bunch of people typing on computers, taking pictures of each other, writing about being in a place taking pictures of each other and typing on computers about each other...

Man, have you ever been co-opted by the Man, man!

So much for the spirit of blogging (as I understood it) which was a bunch of people at home in their pajamas sharing their ideas with the world. Now you're just part of the fishbowl that everyone is watching. Which makes what you're doing self-referential and ridiculous and irrelevant.

There. That's my party-pooper take on it.

But seriously...people standing around in a room getting their 15 minutes of fame for doing something that was supposed to not be about fame....

Gahrie said...

There are almsot as many different reasons for blogging as there are blogs....

Edward said...

Mark: Who cares if some bloggers become famous?

I don't.

Anyway, I thought Ann wanted to become famous (and, if possible, rule the world) through her blogging.

Well, mark, what would you rather Ann be doing at this time?

What sort of activities should a 50-something woman be engaging in, if not this?

Peace, Maxine

Wow. Bloggers are HOT.

Wince and Nod said...

Yes, but what shoes are you wearing?

Yours,

The food looks great. The fritos dip looks a little thick, but then we notice the spoon. Probably didn't need a spoon there since it's so thick it would go right on the chip, no problems and it wouldn't be considered bad taste. Then there all the other spoons and they look so new. Did someone foget spoons and show up with the package of spoons at the corner of that picture? They really could have passed, most of the dips look like they would go right on the food, really, and it still wouldn't have been in poor taste.

Whoops, it's Steve Johnson, not Charles Johnson.... corrected.

I can safely say whatever you're talking about, is grossly exaggerated, or simply not true.

I long for the old days when we weren't part of the problem, and could take the high road regarding MSM and their inability to avoid becoming the story /involved in the story/ they were reporting on.

Years ago I remember reading a comment made by Ron Silver during Clinton's swearing in: "Those are *OUR* planes now!".

Now that we've become them, I guess we can say "Hey, that's OUR MSM, now!".

It's like a poor man's nerd convention.

I'm kinda down wit Mark on this one, unless Crocodile Dundee shows up, or Bob Dylan, or esp., Jimmy Reed.

But, Maxine, you are out of your mind. "Whatsa matter, baby, is it hurting you?" Timi Yuro
