Hmmm, what better day to start what will probably become our weekly look around the local blog soap operas than the morning after The Huffington Post/Yahoo!/Gawker Media love fest that was billed as a night celebrating Defamer's Mark Lisanti but really was to celebrate and launch the syndication agreements between the three parties. While we generally hovered next to the go fug girls, the Mister Zero you don't want to !@$* with, Defamer's Employee of the Month and Marissa of Terra Non Firma, we did spend a little time with the boys of Martini Republic and several Yahoo! content kids who are transitioning from the bay area to the West side and were very serious about getting some In-N-Out burgers before heading back to the Viceroy for the after party.

New LA Times Opinion columnist Megan Daum was there as well as Bill Maher and Ron Silver but our favorite sighting outside of the woman in the red cat suit were Charlie Day and Mary Elizabeth Ellis of It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia - the funniest sitcom on basic cable that you probably didn't watch.

Anyway, Fishbowl LA will probably do the proper tally of all the important tidbits of the event but we chose to count the number of times Arianna said "blogosphere" in her remarks: five.
