    stop laughing.
    this girl from virginia actually came to my house and stayed with me for a week! tho it was initially awkward, it was an awesome time!
    meeting the bdw girls was easier for me b/c i brought my sis (it was too far to come alone)...i didn't know how to greet everyone, so i just said hi and introduced myself. we immediately had tons to talk about, both wedding related and otherwise.
    we didn't drink...though i plan to change that this time around

    OMG i had to laugh!!!!

    PS - i LOVE your siggy pic - it looks amazing :)

          i had an obsession in 1995. but i think it was healthy. alanis helped me through some hard times. I still love jaged little pill. It's in my top 10 for sure.

            This is a great post. Hopefully I can make the next Atlanta one, these tips defitenly will help!

            We should plan a big gathering for ALL of the BDWers for 2009 or so for all of us to meet up! I could go for a nice cruise. lol

              jagged little pill was awesome, and i loved it...but her other stuff is incredible! btw, her new album comes out soon.

                I will say that when Kate & I got together it did kinda feel like a blind date before I got there. Once we found eachother it was just AWESOME. I thought Kate was totally like her online persona & felt immediately comfortable. We shot the shit for a few hours until we were too cold to continue sitting outside, so we bailed.

                So regarding the etiquette question, is it not cool to get completely wasted & ask you to drive me home? LOL!
                I agree with Christa...I'm awesome! JK! We barely talked wedding at all - we basically just talked about random stuff. The first few seconds are weird, but after that it's easy. And it's not like we wear t-shirts that say "We met online" or anything. No one knows except for us!

                  Our conversations consisted of all sorts of stuff, from weddings to BDW to our lives.

                  Don't worry to much, you will have a blast !
                  I agree with Yari.
                  I've been to two meetings, should have been three but I missed the very first one in San Juan. Anyways, I really think there is nothing to worry about when meeting these girls especially since we talk to eachother almost everyday.....I feel really comfortable when meeting the girls....and I'm sorry if I didn't I wouldn't stay very long.....(sorry if that sounds bitchy but it's true).
                  So I say be relaxed and if you have a weird feeling then excuse yourself but don't worry it won't be that bad. :)

                    Wait, there was a meeting in San Juan? Ladies, where are the pics and posts about things to do? I've been thinking nobody liked PR!
                    I live too far away from everyone-pout-though I had hoped to meet up with the Canada girls. Everytime I talk about the forum my uncyber friends give me weird looks. I compare it to having lots of penpals!

                      You can meet up with us in NY on June 7th (I think) Jason is trying to put something together.
