double decaf lo-fat bloggaccino

skippy would like to give a big shout out to jane of
firedoglake, with whom we spent a lovely morning sipping overpriced coffee drinks in lovely brentwood california today.

it must be "meet the bloggers" week, because no sooner had we enjoyed our first formal face-to-face
with our co-blogger cookie jill, then we got an invite from the erudite jane to break muffin (technically, we snacked on two of cookie jill's bakery bonanzas that jill brought to skippy international headquarters earlier this week).

skippy and jane talked about everything from special prosecutors (see
jane's excellent reporting on same) and repubbbs with microphones to rednecks and sea changes. and jane's standard poodle kobe agreed with most everything skippy said, especially the "you're a good boy" part.

but we realized that, as much fun as blogging is, there is no substitute for meeting people in real life. we suggest everyone try to coordinate with their fellow bloggers in their areas to arrange get-togethers. it strengthens your sense of community and gets you away from the damn computer for a while. fresh air...what a concept!

on that note, skippy is pleased as punch to learn that
next year's dkos yearly kos meetup will be in the exciting (and close to skippy) town of las vegas, nevada!

remember, what blogs in vegas, stay in vegas.
