I'm Avoiding SXSW Traffic. How are you? March 14, 2010 11:07 AM   Subscribe

Shmoopy... because we need it.

Hi, I'm from Austin and I'd just like to apologize for this little festival thing we've got going on down here that's [I suspect] stolen your mods for a few days. Like a classroom full of kids, chaos erupts when the teacher leaves the room.

I, for one, miss the shmoopy. I know I'm not alone in this, so let's all be nice to each other for a change and let the mods have a break, huh?

There's cookies on the table. Help yourself!

Also, I need some love, [ʃmopi] or otherwise, because I only got to sleep three hours in my hostel in London this morning, since the next two were my top bunkmate's alarm going off every 10 minutes LOUDLY and without regard for other humans present. Then, naturally, the dorm got flooded by the shower nearby, and since my bunk was right next to the door, all of my belongings, stored under my bed, were soaked and much was ruined. The best part though...after the confusion of the flood, my backpack was stolen! YAY!

Suggesting that somehow it's only the mods that keep us 'nice' is a little annoying. But I hope that Metafilter doesn't have to become a place where we all have to be 'nice' to each other. People have disagreements, and people can be disagreeable. It's one of the things our species is really good at.

That said, I'm all for letting the mods have a break. How's that for shmoopy?

It was funny being in the car and turning it on to that station and hearing "Jessamyn" and thinking, "oh, that's funny, like Metafilter." Then hearing "cortex..." and realizing it WAS Metafilter on muh radio. When the internet and real life in your car collide.
