A few months ago I was at work at the famous indie bookstore and some frizzy-haired dude came up to me, looked at me for a moment and said 'Do you post at Metafilter?' 'Who wants to know?' I asked. 'Me. nasreddin
,' and we shot the breeze for a bit. Then a few months later, this cat
came in selling used books and made himself a nice chunk of change and we chewed the fat a bit. And we even had an international visitor
drop by a while back.
Then just yesterday, I was leaning agaist the counter enjoying a brief breather when I spotted a redhead walking up the aisle waving frantically at me. I was a bit worried until I realized it was Don Matteo's chief consiglere herself
. About an hour later, this incident
occurred, and almost immediately after this dude
walked past and waved and I told him about all the fun he missed.
Then, today, as I was enjoying a brief breather at the end of the day, a guy came up to me and said 'Do you work he---Oh, shit! I'm from Metafilter!' It was this Certified Ice Mason
and we shot the breeze.
That's quite a spate of MeFi Meatspace Invasion, people.
*Just kidding. This is all a big kick in the pants
