Meet The Bloggers World Tour - 2006: Geneva

Oh...by the way...a belated Happy Thanksgiving to all the Americans out there in bloggerland. I woke up in Nyon this past Thursday morning (tagged along with Mrs. TBF on an overnight business trip), turned on CNN, saw that the markets were going to be closed, wondered why, ....and then wished Mrs. TBF a Happy Thanksgiving as she walked out of the bathroom in her post-shower, all-wrapped-up-in-towels splendor. "Oh yeah," she said, "...I forgot."

That's Thanksgiving in Europe for you - just another day. Well, maybe just another day for her because of the fact that she had to spend the day slaving away at the office. However, Thursday ended up being a special day for yours truly. You see - I
met not one...but two fellow bloggers in a matter of a couple of hours. I've now met half a dozen bloggers, whom I had not known before blogging, face-to-face.

The first meeting ever with our fellow bloggers was with The Expatters on January 21, 2005. However, here are the dates from "Meet The Bloggers World Tour - 2006" in case you're thinking of having black concert t-shirts printed with the dates on the back:

Barry - September 27, 2006: Basel, Switzerland

Michael - November 4, 2006: Chicago, Illinois, U.S.A.

...guess who? - November 23, 2006: Geneva, Switzerland

Sara - November 23, 2006: Geneva, Switzerland

That's right, folks! I met two very nice bloggers on one day. I met "mystery blogger" for a quick coffee, and I met Sara for lunch. Sara and I lunched on roasted chicken, so it was almost like having a Thanksgiving meal.

Three bloggers in one month! Who's next?

OK, so when is the mystery blogger revealed? Although I suspect I know who it is! And he/she's not sayin' either!

Gotta hook Ms Mac up with some of those pine sap or pine tar or whatever they are bonbons. I have to hide them from my MIL, they are deep within my purse...
