Blogging on my mind tonight

Tonight when we were at Papa Ginos, that unfabulous pizza parlor, home of the most bland pizza in the world, we were sitting next to two women, both of whom had two children with them. One of them looked amazingly familiar and I looked at her several times, thinking, "Where do I know this woman from?". Her kids were gorgeous and very lively. They didn't look familiar but they were about 5 and 8 years old, and I really don't know too many kids that age in real life.

She looked at me several times, but she looked more at my kids. I could see that she had some sense of recognition of them, but didn't know their names. Ditto for me, I had no clue of the names she called her kids. But it was apparent to both of us that we looked familiar in some way we couldn't figure out.

After they left, I said to my kids, "I think that woman is a blogger."

I didn't know which blog it was, but she just looked way too familiar and she was obviously a single mom out with a friend, so I tried to think of who it could possibly be, thinking of single moms in that age group. I went up and down my blog roll, but I finally figured out who it must have been.

If that mom is reading, wow, your kids are really beautiful! It was nice to see them, and I wish I had even a remote clue of who you were then so I could have said "Hi" and introduced myself. Oh well, maybe another time.

That's so wierd! I think I'd flip out if I recognized someone from blog-world in the real world.

Great site! Glad M-Mad cruised me through.

oh god! your kids read your blog? My kids know I HAVE a blog, but I don't give them the address. They're constantly coming up with ideas or taking pictures for me, "You need to put this on your blog, mom!" Of course, the pictures are always of the kittens, and I don't want to be known as the "Crazy Cat Blogger Lady"
