Blogger Gathering

Well, well. I am very pleased to report that a group of bloggers can meet in a public place without spiking the Dork-O-Meter into the red zone.

-Robbo the Llama
Absolutely true. Though, we were just this shy of having a quorum to hold a Bar Association event - and it occurred to noone to break out a Player's Handbook. (Though, the kids at the next table over did break out, spontaneously, into Dayeinu, though I think I was the only one there that knew it. Odd - they were off by, what, 5, 6 months? Kids - it's just after Yom Kippur, not Pesach. Gevalt.) However, the Flying Spagetti Monster was discussed, and resoundingly approved! I also learned the secret of Attorney-Blogging: staff. Staff is critical; that, and a job that doesn't require 6-day-a-week attendance. But, it'll all be better for it at the end - at least, that's what I keep telling myself. Someday, maybe soon, I will be able to afford to hire myself. Then I can start looking for Staff.

Anyways, back to the Blogger event. Present were JohnL from TexasBestGrok, the above-mentioned Rob from Llama Butchers, the Maximum Leader from Naked Villainy, Princess Cat from A Swift Kick and a Band-Aid (escorted by her blog-less friend Matt), Buckethead from The Ministry of Minor Perfidy, Ted from Rocket Jones, Dawn from Caterwauling, and myself, of course. Well, given the state of posting around here, "of course" may be a bit presumptuous, but I was there nonetheless.

To answer Buckethead's question: yes. Though, I had forgotten about Mr. Spooner. The General, I had not. On the gripping hand, it wasn't the ancient Spartan that attracted my attention as more than an interesting historical name and figure. Though, never did like the nickname given there.

The conversation and company was great, and any time there is another get-together, formal or not, it'd be a pleasure to go.

Mu.Nu must not like me. Or maybe my Firefox Settings don't like Mu.Nu. Either way, I'll try later on to set the trackbacks for everyone. An exception: The Maximum Leader's trackback worked just fine (as if differently was expected?).
