Pictures from extremely fun Madison MeFi Meetup. January 31, 2005 9:59 AM   Subscribe

Adorable. Love the first photo, noobs!

You should have warned us about rocketman's shirt ;)

That shirt is totally Laugh-In meets Hee Haw. Wow.

I get a real Hawaiian vibe here. If only rocketman's drink had an umbrella in it, and dr. wu were wearing a lei, the picture would be complete.

Gawd do I look wasted in those photos.

Thanks for posting these, tulseluper!

Rocketman, that shirt looks like something that Mike Brady would have worn on his family trip to Hawaii.

Wow, it was a big meetup weekend. Perhaps we should all agree on a single flickr tag for mefi meetups. Like, say, mefimeetup. Or I can just search for multiple tags but that makes me feel dirty.

Those are super awesome pictures. You can tell you guys totally had a great time!

I am sooo bummed I missed it. It would have given me a chance to wear a shirt so hideous that the blind have been known to cover their eyes and flee from it in horror. It's nearly as bad as rocketmans! Alas, I had other, more pressing, obligations that evening.
Next time!

There was a Madison meetup... Damnit! Next time I'm there.

Hahaha thanks for the shoutout. Nice shirt.

Boy, that Dr. Wu sure is hott!
And tulseluper - what a dreamboat!
Adonis has nothing on rocketman.

hott stuff!

- someone who hijacked Dr. Wu's account (maybe)

There was an unbelievably stoned cocktail waitress who liked to dance, but no MeFites.
posted by rocketman at 12:59 PM on January 31, 2005

And where are the photos of this...cocktail waitress you speak of?

We had a hell of a time trying to track her down all night: she abandoned us for about 40 minutes - and we were desperately thirsty! And it took about 15 minutes between asking for the check and receiving it.

What I mean is that: she was rarely around long enough to appear in photos.
She was definitely stoned, though. And possibly slightly insane. (She did take the picture of the three of us, though.)

Whoa, I'm sorry that I missed it, being in New York and all. Good to know that I'm still remembered around those parts, though - thanks for the "shoutout," rocketman.

Hopefully there will be one in Madison or Milwaukee after I move back in August.

Just wanted to let you know that you're missed.
posted by rocketman at 2:56 PM on January 31, 2005

Aww, thanks for the shoutout, guys. I really wish I'd been there.

I was gonna surprise you guys, living down I-90 a stretch and all, but the flu intervened.

Hey! No shoutout for me Dr. Wu? And to think I was going to do an ass-shoutout for you...
posted by spaghetti at 9:20 PM on January 31, 2005

Oh, shit, spaghetti, I totally have a pic of me sending you a shoutout! I musta just forgot to post it!

OK: it's there now. Sorry, buddy!

Now can I have that ass-shoutout? Please?

PS. What in the holy hell is an ass-shoutout? Or don't I want to know?
posted by Dr. Wu at 9:43 PM on January 31, 2005

It's a fairly sophisticated maneuver, and you don't want your speakers turned up too high when you get one.

Just messin' with ya about the shoutout, no sorry needed.
posted by spaghetti at 5:22 AM on February 1, 2005

*sniffle* Wish I could have joined you boys. I waved a pre-meetup hello to you as I passed the bar earlier in the day. Had to get back to Mke, though. Foo.

And UKnowForKids, you'll always be remembered... if for no other reason than planning the last meetup and then not showing up. ;)
