eljay shoutout!

So I went to a LJ meetup last night and met a bunch of people from the damnportlanders com, including several folks from my own f-list that I hadn't met before (and, of course, some that I have).

I've only been to two of these monthly gatherings previously, probably over a year ago now. Not sure what made me decide to go to this ... probably thought it might be a good way to relieve some stress from work.

It was. :)

When I walked in, the first person I recognized was Don (bellybalt), sitting at a table with Shannon (shademalek), Gloria (socktree), and Stephen (cratermoon), and a couple folks I hadn't met in person before: Michelle (windfaerie), and my LJ friend Julia (prettymuchjulia). wOOt!

Over the course of the night, I also visited with LJ friend Dorota (dstroy) and Shel (angleburn1), both of whom I'd met previously, and met a bunch more LJ'ers, all from the damnportlanders com:
Xander and I have debated on DP recently, and I remarked that one thing you NEVER hear in that com is "you're right, and I'm wrong." So for posterity, he made a recording of me saying it to him, ostensibly to post whenever we get into another debate.

This marks my debut on YouTube, by the way:


Don took pics all evening, which he traditionally does, but posts none of himself. These are going to look a little weird because they're compressed. Click each to see a big version, or go to his post in DP for the entire set.


L to R: Me, Julia, and Michelle.
There were a bunch of folks at the big table across the room, we went over to join when an adjacent table opened up.

That's Andrea in the lower left, with her nerdcakes. She put one in a little bag specially for me. :)
And then you do what? Wait, let me write this down.

(Sarah is telling me how to spell her username, or making fun of me for writing everyone's down.)
Julia feeding a cupcake to birthday girl Gia.

At this point we were switching the nametags around and reprazentin' absent DP celebs. Gia was drjeff for a while. Julia was ... well, me.
I decided to be lokidecat for a bit.
Xander and Shel appear to be freaking Julia out with their bindis.
Shel deploys a tot to launch at Don, and I anticipate getting caught in the middle of a food fight.

Man. What fun. :)
