Post Blog-Meet Thank You Note

Well, well. I am very pleased to report that a group of bloggers can meet in a public place without spiking the Dork-O-Meter into the red zone.

Saturday evening, a little group of us got together at Olde Towne Alexandria's Union Street Public House. Among the attendees were JohnL from TexasBestGrok, in town on the company dime for, er, important legal edification, (yeah, that's the ticket), the Maximum Leader from Naked Villainy, Princess Cat from A Swift Kick and a Band-Aid, together with her non-blogger (but very flattering) friend Matt, Buckethead from The Ministry of Minor Perfidy, Ted from Rocket Jones, Dawn from Caterwauling, who was amusedly tolerant of all us Digital Brownshirts, and Lysander of Alexandria. An extremely pleasant time was had by all.

I've been reading some of these guys for quite some time and, above everything else, I went down to Alexandria extremely curious to see how closely the real deal matched up to the mental image I had built up from their blogs. As it turned out, nobody was really that much different than what I had expected. And I mean that in a good way - everyone was just as witty and enthusiastic and fun to talk to in real life as they are in their Blogsphere manifestations. Perhaps in testimony to this, I was rather amazed that the evening went by so quickly. (A lot of pictures were taken, btw. I haven't seen any yet, but if anyone posts them, I'll link it up.)

Many thanks again to all of you who were there for such a great time. I think the consensus was a) that we should definitely do this again and b) that we'd love to have some other folks come and join in the fun next time.

Yip! Yip!

I couldn't have said it better myself. Thanks for being there with us.
