Life has been good. Monday I went to a Ranger’s game, Tuesday I had Zogsports, last night I had a crazy fun work dinner and here I am the other day at Mile End, a “deli” in Brooklyn if you can be a deli and serve poutine on the side. Or maybe that’s the way it is in Canada, where the owners get bagels shipped in from. It’s supposed to be the real deal. And the poutine… that’s the real deal, too I can say.

Lucy helped me eat my poutine, which was nice. She’s basically the best roommate ever. She also got a sandwich to go. At night, you only have one choice of sandwich.

And here’s a shot of the interior:

It’s kind of real small, but it’s kind of real good. And it’s also a part of Zagat’s 140 chefs, restaurants, and bloggers to follow on Twitter. Now you know.

Sometimes you just need a drink. More specifically, a lychee martini! I was never a big martini girl (except for this fab place in Berkley, Mich. called The Living Room) but lychee martinis are especially wonderful. I mean, I don’t really even know what a lychee is, besides the fact that it’s some sort of fruit and it looks kind of like a strawraspberry when it’s not in my martini. So yes, this is my new fancy drink of choice. I had one when we were at Lure Fishbar a few weeks back, too.

This week I went to dinner with Chris, who I know through Twitter originally (seriously, Twitter rules the world, or at least mine) and then one day I randomly saw him on the street and I was like, “Chris?” and he was like, “Amanda?” Well, long story short, we’re friends now. And we go to dinner. At Spice in Union Square.

Chris had a passion fruit caipirinha which looked pretty, too. For my entree, I had some sort of noodles with pineapple and chicken and I can’t find it on the menu now but it was deeeelicious. Spice is so convenient, I mean 60% of my life revolves around Union Square so this can be a new go-to joint for me. And it’s kinda flashy inside too.

And here’s Chris, looking stellar, teaching me things you can do on the iPhone. :)

Yay. I love dinner. And Twitter. And new friends. :)

At this point, I’ve pretty much given up on the idea that Brokelyn was actually going to post pictures from their event (along with Effed in Park Slope and Brooklyn Based) Brooklyn Blogs, which was at the Bell House last week. They had a fancy camera and were taking down names and blogs and I was looking forward to being in the photo gallery for the event with some new friends as well as the fact that my picture was being taken by a fancy camera. This is rare. Let’s be real, I carry around my point-and-shoot and hand it to the nearest person to snap one at me, so it’s nice to step it up a bit when I get the chance. Like this picture above! Which Laura Leebove took at BK Blogs because she HAS a fancy camera. Well good news, you guys. I recently picked up a Job No. 2, which is very very exciting and it’s social media and food related so HOLLER, check me out! I am PUMPED because it is going to be great. And maybe one day I’ll let you in on it. :)

ANYWAY the reason I just told you that is that Miss Amandy over here who keeps talking about blah blah blah I want an SLR will finally have NO excuse not to get one. You heard it here first.

ANYWAY (again): BK Blogs. As I said, it was at the Bell House, which is one of my fave spots and when I got there it was PACKED. The best part was they made you wear name tags with your real name and your blog name (or fake name and fake blog name, I guess) so it was a great conversation starter because you could just walk up to someone and be like, “So tell me about Various Name of Blog.” Which is what I did. A lot. Especially to boys with beards and nice smiles.

It was fantastic because I got to see some people I am blog friendly, twitter friendly, and real life friendly with; as well as meet people I had so far only spoken with on the interwebs, as well as meet people I have never spoken to before! So many bloggers! It was awesome. I really hope they do another.

I got to meet Erin from BLD Project, who I was already twitter-friendly with. So nice to put faces to names and twitter handles!

We are holding mini lobster rolls from the Red Hook Lobster Pound, because obviously there is no Brooklyn Blogger event without some Brooklyn Things to Eat. And they were good. You already know my feelings on lobster.

There were also cupcakes from Robicelli’s. I had banana something or other.

So there you have it. Bk Blogs: We came, we ate, we talked, we drank Brooklyn beers… and then we blogged about it. :)
