Seattle meetups photos December 4, 2005 12:28 AM   Subscribe

Seattleites met up, with special guest appearances from Madison, WI and Bellingham, WA. Frames were bowled. The mic was rocked. And a special birthday boy made a virtual guest appearance (in fact, without his knowledge).

I have a few photos as well I'll be putting up, but tomorrow. One should never process photos while half-asleep.

Bowling on Shabbas? Sacrelicious! I'm going to make it to one of these someday. I live about 5 blocks from Sunset Bowl too.

Awwww, thanks, guys! Come back to Portland soon? How about February? I love the way you were helping jonmc to his beer (even to the extent of spilling it on his cake...) the mark of true friends.

I would like to know if rocketman actually sang "LA Woman".

Rocketman sang LA Woman. Unfortunately I missed about half of it because I had to go pay for my bowling lane, but it was a pretty surreal experience. Kindall may have photos of it.

I think the true spirit of fellowship between Seattle and Portland MeFites has only just begun, and there should be a long and glorious tradition of joint meetups. Especially if it doesn't snow. Go Amtrak!

I was in Seattle last night?

That's what you get for falling asleep on the subway. Geez, I gotta lay off the Wild Turkey.

(thanks, that is way too cool for school)

I know, between luneray, librarina, and spinifex23, we could have a regular stitch-and-bitch session.

I wish I'd been there to see the karaoke. And to hear rocketman mispronounce the word "karaoke" like he "alwas" does.

Thanks for the shoutout, which ever one of you gave it.

Those photos are great, kindall, thanks! I look a combination of drunk and plotting great evil.

Part of this should be subtitled "Bring me the head of jonmc."

Bah. Thought it was for tonight. Guess I don't need to wander around Sunset Bowl tonight.

What a blast! Thanks Seattle mefi, and a very, very special thanks to warbaby, who saved the day.

I owe you two.
