Aka BEST STUDY BREAK EVER.
So I had my chemistry test (after thinking it was at 1:30, then discovering it was in fact at 9:10 in the morning… whoops?). It went okay, I was running on about 3 hours of sleep (stupid nerves), so I definitely crashed afterwards. And then awoke to a dream (oh melodrama…)
The lovely Alex of Veggin’ Out in the Kitchen happened to be in my general vicinity vacationing and visiting colleges… so we e-mailed, chatted it up a bit, and decided to meet up! I gave her a tour of my school and rather talked her ear off.
But um, if you think she’s adorable online? She’s about 100000000000 times more adorable and amazing in person. And her dad was so kind as to pay for a lovely meal for us at a local Thai place, and to put up with my incessant chatter.
I had my usual Tom Yum vegetarian soup… I’m sort of obsessed with Thai soups, I loveee this stuff! I really ought to find a recipe and try it at home…
Alex opted for the green papaya salad. It was also really good, with a light and fruity dressing (I may or may not have stolen some…). Her dad’s dish was non-vegetarian and thus not photographed ;)
We somehow managed to talk for a solid 3 hours. And by we managed to talk I mean I babbled and these kind souls listened. It was an absolute joy to meet up with her! And I hope we meet again :)
It’s generally so exciting to meet blog-friends. I wish I could meet all of you, somehow… party at my place? I’ll bring cookies. ;)
Have you met any of your blog-friends in person? Did you LOVE it?
