How much of the 80's do you remember?
so last night was pretty goddamn cool. I have taken part in many odd, and some uncomfortable experiences as a result of mixing real life and the online world. Some of them (like chellez) have been the best of decisions. Others have led to more long term regret and loss than anything that could be labeled as "worthwhile".
last night's impromtu LJ meetup thinger was decidedly part of the cool camp. i met up with murnkay,mightywombat (in from peach country, but talkin like a "fuckin newyorkah"), and mrshellion outside at Le Figaro, where I have had a drink, but never a meal before. there was a moment of mouth-breathing glove shopping, followed by some banter while we waited for the rest of the party.
the MonkeyWife and reves_rouges met us shortly thereafter, followed by much eating, drinking, and hillarity.
it was very refreshing to meet a bunch of people with whom you have a tangetal (at best) connection at the beginning of an evening, and feel like you fit in with like old friends with by the end of an evening. i'm definitely on the outiside of many long-running gags than inside, but by the end of the night, i was getting as many as I was missing (which, IMO is pretty amazing).
so yeah, thanks for the invite and the laughs, to all involved.
in other news i am signifigantly bothered by two bits of information which slipped by me completely, yet seem to be hot topics of discussion today. vidicon pointed out the audacity of the activities described in this article, which, on principals alone (much less application) i am defintiely SERIOUSLY irked.
aside from that there was the recent bulletin posted by the fbi which throws suspicion on owners of a particular book who use it in public.
question for the audience, if al-qaeda was suspected of using the bible to transmit secret plans and messages of terrah (as opposed to all the others who just do it for laughs), do you think a similar blanket warning would have ensued from the holy house of ashcroft & co?
it was suggested to me by a reputable source that this act be labeled the "hoover act" or the "hoover bush act". i think that is a good idea. henceforth i will refer to it as such.
