Thanks Metafilter

On October 31, the lovely and talented LN married some bonehead she met on the internet. We had met at a very small meetup on (Canadian) Thanksgiving two years ago. On Halloween night, you all were in my mind as I made our thanks and gave our toast at the reception to absent friends and family.

So, for all of you shy guys (and gals) out there in mefiland, I have to recommend walking up to perfect strangers in a bar, telling them you're a bonehead and asking if they're "from Metafilter". It's a sure-fire winner, in my experience.

Thanks Metafilter, from two ridiculously happy people.

From the meetup thread:

I wandered by at about 9 PM but I didn't see anyone who looked like St. U, so I left again. Did anything end up happening?

Bonehead and I were there, we had a little sign on the table and everything! :(

Mazel tov! Weird side note, St. U's H has been gone from the site since a few months after that meetup.

...and our first date was Thanksgiving. All part of my cunning plan.

Or would be if I had a plan.

I don't spend tons of time on MeFi Music but I immediately recognized LN's username from this absolutely stunning recording she posted two years ago.

I'm sorry, but I think the last thing the world needs is MeFites meeting, marrying, and breeding.

Haven't we done enough?
