Had a great time at the Indy blogmeet yesterday. It was very nice for folks to hang around since they knew that B and I would be late since we were working at the Indy 1500 gun show.
I'm proud of myself in that I managed not to go all geeky fangirl on some folks that I read daily, namely Brigid, Tam, and Roberta X (I'd met Roberta X before and did see her, Tam, and Shootin' Buddy at the show the day before). I was able to do the whole Strike Hold demonstration for them, which I really enjoyed. Seeing their eyes light up as I screwed in the light bulb under water and ran the drill was a lot fun.
I was happy to meet Og, whose blog I've read but am now adding to the blogroll along with Jay, who used a chinese banknote as a notepad to give me his blog addy (wicked cool), which was totally fitting considering our conversation about Chinese cuisine and spices as well as the infamous omakase at sushi bars. Very much enjoyed chatting with Owen, who understands my pain in dealing with overinflated egos. It was also great to see Old Grouch again and listen to the discussion about the psychological implications of pumpkin carving.
Fantastic end to a great weekend!
