i realized i still know how to do a cartwheel and a round-off which is something i learned about myself this weekend while pretending to be a gymnast on sunday.
i also learned that i can still drink and flip a mean cup of beer, that i know how to do the electric slide and that's i am blog famous.
or semi-famous per taawd's account - same thing.
i was recognized as the author of this blog friday night in real life.
a nice woman literally pointed at me and was like, "you write cleveland's a plum - you're alexa!"
my face turned red and i think i shrieked.
turns out she was a cleveland blogger too and writes life on mars, she emailed me today all apologetic like thinking she freaked me out by stalking my blog.
um no way, we all blog stalk - i would do exactly the same thing if i saw a blogger i read in real life. how do you think i met chef's widow?
so little did mars know that she had stumbled upon a fabulous cleveland blogger meet up consisting of myself, allison, mel and taawd while we were enjoying dinner and each others company at bar cento with the chef and his widow.
i can't say enough about how much i enjoy bar cento - it never fails to impress me with the service (go everest), the atmosphere, the music (who doesn't love the jackson 5?) and the FOOD, god you can't forget the food. so if you haven't checked out bar cento in ohio city by now you must taste the menu that got the joint best new restaurant 2008 from northern ohio live magazine. congrats!
so it's always slightly nerve wracking meeting someone that you only know through the internet but mel and taawd were awesome (i already knew allison and chef and chef's widow), and even though taawd thinks i'm crazy in a good way i still like him. i like him and mel together even more. here's a pic of the group at cento via the widow's iphone.
after dinner we headed down the street to a party at one of allison's friends house where we met up with even more bloggers! my favorite narm (who was wearing my cleveland's a plum t-shirt - he's a super fan!) and blogging jason were both in attendance AND i got to finally meet allison's famous BF - or the cohabitant as i kept calling him.
after too many games of flip cup i realized that i was not 21 and needed to go home asap. i may have realized this a little too late in the evening for my own good.
saturday morning i woke up early and headed to canton for my friend katie and mike's wedding! talk about a party i had so much fun - it was perfect and after emailing with katie today she thought it was too. have fun on your honeymoon mrs sturz!!!!
after the wedding we headed to my favorite north canton bar the geisin haus to meet up with more of our friends. i really do miss going to that bar.
sunday morning i had a brunch birthday party for my 6 year old cousin graceyn at my uncle david and tia jo's
it was awesome.
just like the whole weekend - this weekend coming up i get to tackle chicago with the UD girls and some awesome, hilarious, amazing, stupendous bloggers! yay! happy nilsa? ; )
