The Blog Fan Writes

One of the best things about being a blogger is when someone I don’t know writes to tell me that they like my blog!  It fascinates me that people can read for months (or longer) and then one day… they email me!  Sometimes we keep on talking.

I got into an interesting conversation with a blog fan.   The universe was kind to send him to me when no AM men were contacting me!  He kindly gave me permission to share our discussions with you.

I’ve been an on and off reader of your blog (depends on how the real world intrudes).
Nevermind the salacious content – which is very enjoyable – as a west of boston resident – I also enjoy the restaurant recommendations!
If you ever need company at a local establishment 🙂
Keep up the blogging!

Hiya Evan!  How are you this fine day?  I adore this cooler weather!
Thanks for writing!  It’s rare that I get email from a blog fan – especially not local people – so great to know I am not whispering into the void when I put all that out there!  It’s fun to know what appeals.  I’m about to add material in a new direction…and look even more like a total hussy!  I hope you will like that as well.  How did you find my blog? 
So… you know a lot about me. Tell me something about you?  Do you like lobster too?  Which of the restaurants I’ve written about appeal to you?  
Have a great weekend!

This is a spectacular day!  I finally made it back outside after my morning stint at Starbucks.  I’m not sure how I first stumbled across your blog.  Typically, I’ll look at the blog rolls of some of the blogs I occasionally read and click through.
A hussy, eh?  I find that hard to believe.  There is a hint of innocence in your posts – or maybe I just need to work on my reading comprehension.
There were a couple of restaurants in Somerville that looked good, plus some of the ones I had been to – Grendel’s Den and Henrietta’s Table.  I haven’t been to Cambridge in ages for dinner.
Lobster?  I love lobster.  Went to a fun place in NY a few weeks ago and had their ‘splat’ – which was lobster, steamers, mussels, the works… all piled high on a platter.
So – I do like to eat.  I do a lot of running these days to stay in shape (and sane) – doing a race every couple of months to see how I’m doing (and collect the t-shirt).  I live west of Boston. I get to travel quite a bit for work.  I enjoy this for the most part – the variety works for me.  I am not the type to go into the same office every day.  Typically I work out of my house – though I will go into our office every now and again to remind them I still work there.
I guess I should get back to work.  Let me know what else I can tell you about me – or where I should meet you for lunch! 
Keep in touch – was nice to ‘meet’ you here.

Hiya Evan!  
It is so fun to hear about you.  Thanks for being a good sport and answering my nosy questions.  You embolden me to ask more!  
I am blessed with blogger pals who list me on their blog rolls.  Great that you click around!  Tell me your favorite blogs?  I’m always looking for more reading.  
Cambridge and Somerville have so many great places to eat!  People ask me for the best restaurants in Boston and I convince them to cross the river.  That “splat” sounds mighty fine!  I’ve found a new place – Belle Isle Seafood in Winthrop, close to Logan – has the best seafood!  Huge portion of lobster pie for $20 with a gorgeous view of the harbor.  It’s a bit rough, cafeteria-style big barn, but delicious dinner and the view… worth a trip!  Where is your favorite place to eat out these days?  What do you order? Do you like to cook?  
Where do you end up traveling?  That must keep life interesting. 
I do have a bit of a split personality.  I used to think I was just a demure, kind older lady, the person the world sees.  But after Philip found me, I discovered Sassy!  She’s the one you know – the blogger who can chat until someone explodes.  She doesn’t get out much.  She is the hussy!  In truly Freudian fashion, there is also a third part of my consciousness I call “The wild girl.”  She appears even more rarely.  Woooo… the overshare light is ON!  
Okay… tell me some stats – Married?  Kids?  Pets?  Age?  Height?  Any hair?  Distance between your outstretched thumb and pinky?  ;0
That’s probably enough for one email… thanks for writing.  It made my day!
