Another Party!

Happy Anniver­sary, god­dessin­ga and greyknight!

We’re home, hav­ing had a love­ly evening of good con­ver­sa­tion at the PolySouth­east hol­i­day potluck. arrow­star (who does­n’t EVER post here) and her hus­band Wolf host­ed it, and it was marvelous.

As usu­al, there was sim­ply no way to real­ly get to talk to all of the love­ly peo­ple who were there, and we missed those who weren’t there. I don’t believe most of the peo­ple I met tonight are on LJ, either. I saw rlovek­ing for the sec­ond time in two nights—very unusu­al 🙂 We got to see Ron, Mark, Rachel, Leslie, and of course arrow­star, and Acorn, who I met last week at the Vul­gar Paja­ma Par­ty. I final­ly got to put faces to Alex and Mon­i­ca’s names—they’ve been on the PSE list for a cou­ple of years now, at least. Wolf tells me we’ve known each oth­er online since 1999, and this was the first time I’ve met him in per­son. Lessee, um, I met Tyree, Peter and Marchelle (sp?), Bind­hi, and Steve. I hope his name is Steve—I did­n’t get real­ly get to speak to him (although his leather jack­et is way seduc­tive­ly soft—I mean dan­ger­ous­ly so).

isar­ma and jupiter­corn­wall did­n’t make it due to child care issues. nae­sa, nor­mal, and sisterfish125 did­n’t get there, either—it is a much longer way from Athens to Smyr­na than it was for us to get there. I missed all of you, though!

Y’all missed a decent dis­cus­sion and lots of good small­er con­ver­sa­tions. There’s talk of start­ing reg­u­lar gath­er­ings every two weeks—apparently, Acorn is will­ing to step up to set things up, as Wolf has been doing. That’s won­der­ful! I have to won­der what peo­ple would like—more pub­lic meet­ings, like the ones at Java­Mon­key? More gath­er­ings at homes? Events where we go do things? (I think bowl­ing was men­tioned by someone.)

Know­ing that arrow­star and Wolf are both musi­cians, I was sor­ta hop­ing that music would hap­pen. It did­n’t, but I imag­ine it will anoth­er time.

Two par­ties in two nights are exceed­ing­ly unusu­al for me. This intro­vert is now crawl­ing into bed!

Oh—I had the odd­est phone mes­sage when I got home from Sean, who had been told that I want­ed him to call me right away. But I did­n’t call him, so I have to won­der if he was sup­posed to call some­one else right away and she’s won­der­ing if she was forgotten.

Appar­ent­ly, the PSE list and web­site may be a bit wonky soon, as they are on a serv­er that’s served by Teloc­i­ty, and that ISP is going away. The server’s own­ers are seek­ing new con­nec­tiv­i­ty, but there’s a pos­si­bil­i­ty of an interruption.
