black widow blogger.

whew.

I was worried there for a bit. it occurred to me that shortly after dining with the stars otherwise known as f.o.t., she-weasel and B; the three of them nearly simultaneously discontinued blogging.

Of course, you readers were way too polite to mention it. And I was way too paranoid to draw attention to the fact. But I actually did begin wondering ... checking my breath ... watching my step ... sniffing my pits ... and generally becoming more and more self-conscious about the situation.

After all, here were 3 gorgeous women, all talented writers in their own write, sharing a mutual admiration society for all things French ... and then, kind of at the last minute, they invite me to their little summit and afterwards ... poof! presto-change-o! they are all mysteriously afflicted with a case of the au revoirs.

Thankfully, two of them, f.o.t. and she-weasel were recently and miraculously resurrected. Some sort of anti-JNRR serum was administered and the black widow bite swelling apparently reduced enough to bring them back.

Unfortunately, B is still missing in action. She was the tiniest so maybe my venom did her in.

*sigh*

Not you. Maybe bipolar disorder--it has been known to wipe out bloggers faster than the plague

U.S.-aw, baby, take care of yourself. i worry, I worry from afar.

Yeah, what she said. As for b, don't blame yourself at all. I had sent her an excerpt of my story and I think she read it and was laughing so hard as she wandered the Champs-Elysée in lunacy that les gendarmes took her away to an asylum.

That said, I might have to rethink this dinner party chez vous.

ah - I heard from her a few weeks back...she's happy in paris and said too busy to blog. Ha...we need to know how she is and what she is up to. I'm still coming to the party, i'm not afraid.

well, I do know Miss B has left France for parts unknown. I hope she is thriving!

You are sweet, funny and mildly paranoid--and I mean that in the best possible way. I am much more likely to blame to astrological horrors or blogger burn out than sweet and lovely you.

I am sure you had nothing to do with the traumas of my life that made me incapable of lifting my fingers to the keyboard. Did you??;-)

I am so sure of it that I am willing to do blogger meet-up Part II.
