Ok, there will (hopefully) be a meeting of MeFi-ers on Saturday May 12th at 3pm at the Speakeasy cafe. If you think you will be appearing, please drop a comment into this thread so that we can encourage each other to show up.

If you are a non-Seattleite (i.e. a Liverpudlian) and would like to discuss other regional gatherings, perhaps post to this earlier thread.

I should be able to make it.

This is the first I've heard of this get-together. Maybe I should look at MetaTalk more often. I will definitely try my best to make it, sounds interesting.

Oooo, cool. I will do my best to be there; I won't have a rehearsal that night for a change. At the very least, for the amusing introductions. ("Hi, gluechunk. I'm kokogiak." Only the web could produce this sort of dialogue.)

It's times like that I can be glad I lacked originality in choosing my name as did (thankfully) my parents.

I'll be there. Marvelous lucky choice of dates!

I don't think anybody will have any trouble spotting me...

...but it would be nice to have a pile of "Hello, my name is" stickers handy. Yeah, they're tacky, but they're also really damned useful when you get a crowd of never-previously-introduced 'netters together.

Take pictures you wierdos!

mars, perhaps this image would be a good name tag template for you.
posted by gluechunk at 1:19 PM on April 27, 2001

Yeah, I think we should use that pic for all our nametags.

Count me in too...

I'll be there but, lest I be accused of false advertising, I'm not very shiny.
posted by shinybeast at 12:27 PM on April 29, 2001

It's all right, sb, I'm not really kind to all either.
posted by kindall at 2:46 PM on April 29, 2001

I really am called Norm... and we're both (NsJen and JensN) hoping to be there, too.

If you haven't already, King county residents taxes are due today. Your earthquake delay is over.

Dammit. . .I'm gonna be out of town!

I'm not all that crass myself. But you, we, I will have to wait till later. hohum. . .
posted by crasspastor at 4:54 AM on May 4, 2001

Welp, looks like the folks will be in town that weekend, so I'm now a no-go. They're new grandparents, and must see that little one, you know. Have fun, take pictures, etc.
posted by kokogiak at 9:55 AM on May 4, 2001

So who's still up for this?
posted by kindall at 11:52 AM on May 8, 2001

We'll definitely be there (normy and I). Frankly, any excuse to get out of town this weekend! *grin*

posted by NsJen at 6:51 PM on May 9, 2001

OK, cool, at least I won't be the only one who shows!
posted by kindall at 10:41 PM on May 9, 2001

I'm still going to try and make it down. Might bring my lady with me as well, just to scare her.
posted by Skot at 9:42 AM on May 10, 2001

i plan on being there. i hope some of the other above people remember that it's happening.
posted by gluechunk at 7:07 PM on May 10, 2001

Might not be a bad idea to e-mail 'em... though I'm not sure I'm the person to do that.
posted by kindall at 10:19 PM on May 10, 2001

i wonder if we could pay for temporary sidebar placement.
posted by gluechunk at 11:58 PM on May 10, 2001

Curses! I'm gonna miss it!! Going to Vancouver to get my groove on...please take lots of pictures-I was really looking forward to meeting all of you.
posted by black8 at 9:39 AM on May 11, 2001

I'll be there. Due to problems with my printer I won't be sporting the cool nametag. If you see anyone that looks like this and answers to "John," it could be me.
posted by john at 11:42 AM on May 11, 2001

Well, we had it. Cool to meet all of you!
posted by kindall at 8:29 AM on May 14, 2001

Kudos to gluechunk for setting it up. I enjoyed meeting y'all very much! It was fun putting faces to some of the names here and hearing real voices in place of the ones we imagine.


posted by NsJen at 10:05 AM on May 14, 2001

Indeed. So the question is when Shinybeast will have those photos developed?

We should have got some video of the juggling action you performed, shiny. Oh well, next time it'll have to be flaming torches.

As you can imagine the conversation bandied about. Occasionally someone would bring a certain topic up and we would gently remind them that it really belongs in the Metatalk meeting. Unfortunately we could not determine if any of us were doublepostguy.

It reamins a MetaMystery.

I really need to resolve to hit the spell check button. But as mentioned in the meeting. Sometimes you just forced yourself to hit that post button all logic and care be damned.
posted by john at 10:47 AM on May 14, 2001

What is this word "developed"? It smells of chemicals. I thought the Beast's camera was digital.
posted by kindall at 11:04 AM on May 14, 2001


That was fun. It was nice to meet y'all.

posted by Mars Saxman at 11:07 AM on May 14, 2001

You, got me there kindall. Though I must admit that I didn't take a close look at it. I was too worried about it stealing my soul and all.
posted by john at 11:11 AM on May 14, 2001

Indeed, it was fun! I'm sorry I had to cut out when I did. I had the two-beer-blues all through Bridget Jones.
posted by Skot at 12:15 PM on May 14, 2001

yes, it was an olympia digital camera I believe.
posted by gluechunk at 1:16 PM on May 14, 2001

I don't worry about cameras stealing my soul. It's the camera that should be worried about getting its lens broken by attempting to capture my image.
posted by kindall at 1:54 PM on May 14, 2001

...getting its lens broken by attempting to capture my image...

*eye rolls*
Nope! Silly! *blowing a raspberry kindall's direction*

Shinybeast juggling? I missed it! *pout*

John, sorry we missed saying g'bye...not sure where you'd snuck off to...

Shinybeast...where's them pics?! *grin*

posted by NsJen at 5:37 PM on May 14, 2001

Ah, no problem. I was making room for more Guiness at the time. $2.50 a pop is quite a treat when I'm used to $5 at most Chicago bars.
posted by john at 7:14 PM on May 14, 2001

Well, where will we have the next one, now that the Speakeasy is gone? :(
posted by kindall at 11:53 AM on May 19, 2001

shinybeast may have been the last person to take photos in the cafe portion. so where are those photos?

posted by gluechunk at 5:31 PM on May 19, 2001

I'm sure we'll (collectively) come up with someplace, kindall. There's a little sidewalk cafe down on Broadway...but the name escapes me at the moment...that has seriously good coffee.
