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
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.
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
