My worlds have felt like they’re colliding a lot lately. Some of the accounts I’m working on at work are health and fitness-focused, so some of my work has involved research on bloggers and blogger events, and it’s been a ton of fun. But weird to be researching some people I know on a friendly basis for work reasons.
Last night, I descended a set of stairs into an alternate universe at Snap, a sports bar in the Meatpacking District.
Do you recognize this pretty lady? If you just read her blog, you may not know that she’s also kind of a big deal on YouTube. She came down for a YouTube meetup, and I went and pretended that I, too, was a big deal on YouTube and crashed her YouTube meetup.
What about him? Do you recognize him?
He is also apparently kind of a big deal on YouTube… and he’s Heather (formerly…) of Hangry Pants’ husband. He was sitting next to Sarah and I recognized his name on his nametag and had no idea about his YouTube stardom, so assumed it was not the same Mark. But then he was talking to Sarah and mentioned he lived in NJ and had just bought a house and then I told him “Wait! I know who you are! I’ve been to your house.”
Here’s his YouTube host buddy.
Afterwards, Sarah and I went to Blue Ginger to get something to eat. She talked me into trying seaweed salad, and it was amazing.
So, we sort of like sushi.

The decor was absolutely hilarious. This is the PG version. There was a painting in the bathroom that I won’t even put up here. You have to go see it.
