There was a small MeFi meetup in Chicago on Wednesday. Small.

Out of all the people who posted to the meetup thread only four showed up! Myself, WCityMike, auntietennis and Baby_Balrog.

I put the requisite shout-out photos on the Internets. They were taken with my phone's camera, so they are ... okay? But clearly I am not DaShiv.

I had a meeting to go to Wednesday night. Had I not, I would have seriously considered possibly attending. Sorry I missed it.

Well, obviously.

Any meetup with me in attendance is by definition perfectly formed.

Well dangit, have the next one on a Friday/Saturday! Grr. The bar is down the street, down the street from me but I couldn't go. Wednesday? Hmph.

...so now I'm left stalking auntietennis on the 'net, rather than in real life.

note to mods and auntietennis: jk! please don't hunt me down and kill me!

I got called up to a date. A *date*, people! I had no choice but to bail. I am abjectly sorry.

how stupid do i have to be not to have realized that wcitymike meant "Windy City Mike"?

Same amount of stupid as me, apparently.

In retrospect, Baby Balrog looks exactly as I pictured him.

The second picture, absolutely. The first one reminds me of Vince McMahon's recent obsessions acting like he just escaped from the loony bin and that creeps me out. Not she looks loony, but that I whatch that crap.

I came home from work, decided to take a nap because it was a loooong day...and woke up around 11 or so :(

I had really planned on attending!

Yeah, weekends work better for me.

I do like the shoutout to the coupon guy.

By the way, 4 isn't a bad meetup. Hell, 2 isn't a bad meetup.

Weak. Sauce. That better have been an awesome nap!

Yeah, weekends work better for me.

Yeah. About that.

The guy who set the date that ended up in the sidebar didn't even show. So, uh... Yes. Weekend next time, fo' sho'.

(Don't take the above to mean I was annoyed or anything, 'cause, hey, I had a pleasant couple hours talking with some MeFites about dolphin-fucking and bluegrass)

I suggested we hit 7/11 or something, and get some of the little single-serving Minute Maid bottles they sell at such places for a group shot, but it didn't happen.

What? And bringing your date to a MeFi meetup didn't seem like a good idea?

Sorry I couldn't make it. Trust me, you guys look like you had more fun than I did writing footnotes.

oh, and thanks b_b for my very first shoutout!

"The first one reminds me of Vince McMahon..."

All right, now who's the creepy one?

At least it explains why I'm single.

Curses. B_B was there and I missed it? Crap. Now I have no excuses.
posted by MeetMegan at 3:22 PM on October 5, 2007


I'm bummed I missed it. I got off of work later than I expected and, stuck with my car, I didn't want to even attempt parking downtown.

A weekend meet up sometime? Eh?

Aw c'mon. He said I blinked, so I overcompensated on take 2. At least take 3 was halfway normal.

For the next one, in addition to a weekend time, I'd say somewhere less noisy and smoky.

I wasn't lying! You did blink.

And the GRR picture isn't creepy, it's cute-funny. And the other one is normal.
