Just wanted to say a quick thank you to the Ontario Blog Squad (Jen, Jackie and Liz - thanks for the T-sihirt - if there are others I don't know your names) for all their hard work in putting together our first (hopefully) annual meeting in Toronto. We met for a late lunch at the Duke of York and proceeded to talk up a storm. It was so wonderful to meet some of the bloggers I follow on a regular basis.
Sometimes I (we) feel that I am alone in my corner of the world, so it was amazingly cheering to meet so many like enthusiasts. I know that there is another book blogger who lives just around the corner from me - Hi Liz - and two who live just down the road in the next small town - Hi Jackie and Mel - Jen, I'm really looking forward to that workshop in May, - Chandi, you really made me think about 'The Book of Eli' and I have reluctantly come to the conclusion you were right after all :) - and many others within a relatively small area.
Many thanks to Jennifer, Natasha, Terri and all the others whose names escape me right now, who made me feel so much a part of the community, and to the publishers who donated lots of goodies for our goody bags. I wish I had a photo to post, but in true Curlypow style, I forgot my camera. I'm already looking forward to next year.
Oh and a big thank you to our long suffering server who was incredibly patient with such a large group of very noisy women. Sorry you couldn't make it Christinabean - we'll shoot for next year, right? Now I'm off to have a look at some of those great books I got - Fever here I come!
