If mojohand just lets that beard grow out, he could become a double for quonsar (and I mean that in the nicest possible way, and not to suggest quonsar may need a double - you can see how much help the doubles were for Saddam).

Thanks for the beer hoisting, humans. I had great fun.

(what you can't see, quonsar, is that I made the "o" in your name a heart; zomg!!1!)

It's said that Quonsar's heart grew two sizes that day.

Nobody shouts-out to Wendell. Wendell is used to being beast of burden. Wendell have sad life, probably have sad death, but at least there is symmetry. No-one manages poor Wendell, you see. So Wendell talks to dirt. Sometimes talks to walls, or talks to ceilings. But dirt is closer. Dirt is used, through everyone walking on it. Just like Wendell, but we've come to like it. It is our role. It is our destiny in the universe. So, you see, sometimes dirt has insects in it. And Wendell likes insects. Not so good for conversation, but much protein for diet.
If you're going to wallow in self-pity, do it Babylon 5-style!

Was great to see/meet everyone! I wish I could have stayed longer, but alas...next time!
posted by youcancallmeal at 2:03 PM on December 30, 2006

I had much fun and enjoyed meeting everybody. However (ahem): I did not *write down* everyone's nicknames, and naturally I did not retain one of yours, which is really inexcusable. Come forward and I shall post the remaining pics (this is you).
*off to GNC for gingko biloba*.

I get absurdly excited any time I get a shout out. Thanks, man.

thx man, flickr edit upcoming!

I should have shouted you out, wendell. :(
posted by frecklefaerie at 10:12 AM on December 31, 2006

Shoot. I was out of town. And Azad^H^H^H^H Stratastar was there@! Now I wish I'd been around, so I could run into someone I haven't seen in a while at a MeFi meetup.


This should happen again, during a time of the year when people don't tend to leave town. Yes? Please?

Ugh...this looked fun. I'm sad I couldn't make it...sick kid and all, blah blah blah. Please don't make it a year before planning another one!

Sorry I missed you guys! Got called into work at the last minute. Looks like fun was had by all!

Sorry I missed it - my long-suffering darling girlfriend is understanding of many things (obviously) but not so much that I could miss her holiday party.
