>December BlogMeet: Kewl!

29 Dec

>Alas, I am short on time; suffice it to say the December BlogMeet was a grand time, with sixteen bloggers and readers from all over gathered for food, libations* and conversation. I counted 16 attendees — and failed to fully note everyone’s names. Hard cider is not, as it turns out, a memory-enhancing tipple. From memory (and in no partular order): Mr. and Mrs. Red, Brigid, Shermlock Shomes & son, Turk Turon, Carteach0, Og, Brigid…. Tam and Caleb were missed; she’s been visiting back across the Mason-Dixon line, and Caleb, it turns out, was busy taking the bronze in a combat pistol match that took longer than planned.

Oh, would you look at the time! Starships wait for no one. Links will have to be embedded later.

    >Hey, is Og the white-bearded fella?

    >This picture intentionally not Og, as Roberta has been known to say. I prefer not to have my image on the internet, for a variety of reasons, and Roberta understands this; that kind of concentrated ugly could shut down our whole corner of the intarweb, let alone ripping the fabric of space-time.

    >Og’s precise appearance is A Mystery; something about (and this is from memory) thirty-seven live badgers and a U. S. Marshal and a promise to never frighten another steelworker again — but I probably have that wrong. (Or maybe I’m making it up and he just happened to be looking away when the shot was snapped; but nobody’d believe that!) The bearded gentleman in the picture is Shermlock; the other bearded gent, behind the camera, is Carteach0. Og showed up late. Again. He said something about eating raw venison along the side of the road with a State Trooper after another driver roadkilled a deer….

    >Roadkill deer was involved. No badgers- or goats- were harmed in the making of this film.

    >”..that kind of concentrated ugly could shut down our whole corner of the intarweb, let alone ripping the fabric of space-time.”Thanks for the warning, Og. I wouldn’t want to let the magic smoke out of my computer.”He said something about eating raw venison along the side of the road …roadkilled a deer…”I heard that too. :)Heh, thats how legends are born.

    >I’m not proud. I’ve eaten roadkill deer. Mostly fresh.

    >Envy duly noted. It was a grand time. And having met Og, I wouldn’t be surprised if any or all of those stories were true. Of course, I wouldn’t be surprised the other way, either …

    >Would you rather have the rough, unvarnished truth, or entertainment?
