There may not have been any Numchuckin Napoleon Skillz (mostly because there was no Wii), but that didn't stop us from having fun last night at our sixth Tweetup!
What made the Tweetup even funner was getting to meet Jane Devin who is a writer and is currently traveling the United States in various GM vehicles blogging about her experiences and journey on her blog, Finding My America. Jane is a kind woman, not to mention funny--but I'm sure she had no idea what she was getting into when she pulled up in a 2010 Chevy Silverado outside a fancy restaurant. What she didn't know was that she was about to meet one of the most unique blend of personalities in the North Texas area.
People who talk about nutria for instance. Not just talk about nutria, but who have actually ate it. That's right Donna, you know you liked that swamp rat. (In Donna's defense, I have been known to have a taste for squirrel. Also in Donna's defense, I am the one who brought up the nutria subject. See now, you might be a redneck if...)
Then there's those who hide from my camera, because they're afraid of getting posted on the internet in an unflattering pose. In fact, I tried to snap a photo of Jane and the first thing she did was hide behind someone. Dang, I hadn't known word would get out so fast. Camera Chickens.
Remember those $8 red shoes I bought in Oklahoma after the Texas blizzard? Here's the verdict: they are a pain in the feet to wear for extended periods of time. Eventually I had to take them off towards the end and rest them. That's when someone came over and begin rubbing my feet...sweet baby Jesus nothing ever felt so good. Me thinks my masseuse must have pushed the manic reflexology point on my feet because the next thing I knew I was up and showing these fine ladies and gentleman my stupid human tricks of doublejointedness. I'll spare y'all the pain.
Mostly we were there to have fun and network. The amazing thing is that all of the people that attend we have all met each other over the internet. Like Holly one of the co-founders of BurbMom.net says, "We may have only one 140 character relationship per month with someone, but we feel like we've each other for a long time." I second that opinion.
Fancy Restaurant we ate at: Agave Tex Mex in Flower Mound, Texas. I had the fish tostadas, but I'd reccomend the tortilla soup. Service was wonderful.
GM/Chevrolet sponsored this event. I won a cool steering wheel clock that totally matches my $8 red shoes. Next week, I will be attending the North American International Auto Show in Detroit. GM is sponsoring my trip. I'd appreciate any cold weather tips you can give me in the meantime.
