No Nature Channel antics, promise!

Tonight is pretty busy for me--I'm scheduled to kill eleven people (I'm only on my third) and I have to rape eight others, and somewhere in there I have to argue with the Nature Channel. But I'll try to make it.

Okay... that was not funny and really horrible...

It's a pity I won't be able to make it tonight to explain in person how insensitive and shitty it is for men to joke about sexual assault, but I have a training that they shifted. I'm all about MeFi, but I'm also about the Benjamins, yo.

Thanks for the shout-out, though, scarabic! I'm back in Cali for a good while, so I'll make it to the next one. Take lots of pitchers!

Ah... just saw the thread to which fandango's seemginly out-of-left-field comment refers.

Still not funny.

Exactly how awkward is it for us non-regular Mefites to show up to gigs like this? Like, what the hell do y'all talk about anyway?

Incredibly awkward and extreme feelings of isolation.

Awkward? As an awkward nobody, let me assure you that meetups are the only thing that has made me a "regular" on MeFi.

That and Metamucil.

The only strange part is finding people if you don't know any of the faces. The rest is good clean fun.

It's only awkward if it's daytime/brightly lit and everyone is stone cold sober. Happily, Jupiter has the flattering low light and alcohol social lubricants that make it all about the friendly beverages and napkin-defacing. That, and maybe some pizza.

I can't make it tonight, but please purchase pitchers, post pictures, play pinball, and polish off at least a little pizza for me.

Right now it's actually drizzling lightly for 2 minutes at a time here and there, so I think we'd be wise to follow the example of the great January MeFi/Mofi meetup and gather inside, probably upstairs.

Oh, I can't wait to see the shots. Post the flickr links to this thread.

Huge turnout! Fun had by all! Glad to see everyone, 'specially the new faces. Cheers and goodnight!

And let me reassure you, DaShiv, that you are not an awkward nobody! *smooch*

The impatient demands are your punishment for being good, DaShiv. But by all means don't feel any pressure from anyone who flaked ;)

Ooo... ZING! Please pardon my partial 'ployment, people!
