Hungover in Paris

Oh god I am dying.  Thank God I arranged to meet Pamela in the evening.  It was a heavy one last night with a load of Irish guys, very messy indeed.  So anyway, I got to meet Pamela in Paris and we decided to go to a wee wine bar down a nice dark alleyway [The sun was hurting my eyes] in the Latin quarter for a pint or two.  Pamela was great!  Pamela is a kind of Internet celebrity, featuring in her own comic strip ‘Geeks in Love‘. It’s pretty much a measuring stick for geekiness.  If you laugh i’m afraid you too sir are a geek :)

Geeks in Love

I’ve never before or since met such a self confessed francophile.  Pamela has been living in France for a few years now and loves everything about it.  We had great chats about all things French, from the language to customs.  (I made the mistake of ordering a drink at the bar, apparently you have to wait for the barmaid to come to you.)  We took a wee look at politics, the Internet culture and then got on to the real important stuff.  Eddie Izzard!  There’s a certain sparkle that people get in their eyes when the find another eddieizzardite, followed by a round of ‘covered in bees’, ‘cake or death’ and ‘death star canteen’ talk.

Thanks Pam

Pam blogged about out little meetup on her Frog Blog.  She called me ‘adorable’, aw  :”)  Pam is an absolute legend on the internet, spinning a lot of blog plates simultaneously, but still having time to buy a whole heap of words on The Big Word Project.

I totally forgot that Low Rider was playing in the background of our interview.  How much cooler does that make it? :)

Was great meeting up with you Pam, hope to run into you again someday, maybe when Im not so hungover :p

  2. Well, you are adorable, don’t fight it.

    Thank you for this great post! I am hardly a celebrity. It’s an illusion. But I have noticed that people who see their own names all over the Internet often do start to think they are celebrities…

    And I must point out that a version of me may co-star in the Geeks In Love, but I’m not the artist! It’s my beloved Frenchman:

    It was lovely meeting you! Congratulations and best of luck with your great project. Be sure to let me know when you’re next in Paris!
