home again, home again (jiggedy jig)

The Indy Blog Meet was awesome. And, hey, look! I met Tam and RobertaX!

You can click the photo to see the entire thing - but I think this cropped version is hysterical...mostly because I'm overtired.

And still a bit overwhelmed...imagine being in a room full of really smart, extremely witty people with interests very similar to yours and each of those people is carrying on 5 different conversations at the same time and all you can do is hope you aren't grinning too much or sounding like too much of an idiot. Then throw in some beer. It was like that - and really, really wonderful. Yeah.

More tomorrow. Sentences will be easier to form when I'm not propping up my eyelids.

Nurse! Get this woman a step stool, STAT!

Now, add in 65,980 more like minded people and you've got the NRA convention!

Tam said...

JShirley is maybe a couple inches taller than you.

Somewhere on my other computer is a picture from deer camp back in '03 of him standing with MattG, JPG, and me. I'm the second shortest person in the pic. (Matt's like better than half a head taller than I am.)

John isn't short, he's a Pocket Ninja. :D

I'm with Robb - that's how the NRA Convention was for me. I was the most inexperienced person there, but I had so much fun, because you wouldn't have known it with how people talked to me. It was neat.

And, I'm one of the two tallest women in my workplace, and I'm usually the tallest woman wherever I go at school, so being around Tam and Roberta was disconcerting for the first few minutes...lol.

"I was the most inexperienced person there"

I beg to differ. I was (still am) pretty much a newb to the whole blogging thing, and guns too.

Good to meet you and your husband. I'm still jealous of his shirt!

Here's the link to the Mexican Stand Off shirt:

It was a delight to get to meet you and talk with you.

And I think the instructions on Mike's shirt were printed upside down. You should be able to read them looking down at them.

Despite that, it WAS teh kewl.

Looks like a rollicking good time to me!

I like the cropped version, except that it cheats us all out of half of your pretty face! It's a cute pic, any way you slice it!

Breda, you have a really beautiful forehead!

*snort*

Tam said...

Squeaky,

From way up here, you and Roberta are pretty much the same height. :p

Squeaky Wheel said...

Tam - Oh, a wise guy, eh? Nyuk, nyuk, nyuk...

And I was thinking the cropped version was with Breda on a little trampoline, bouncing up to see over the edge of the picture... now several hundred of us'ns wished we could have been there - and Indy is always ready for that.

Someone should make an animated GIF of that.

That photo cracks me up, not sure why.

Oh yeah, probably the height imbalance ;)

kaveman said...

You're the perfect height for staring at boobs all day long without appearing creepy.

I'm jealous.

Hey, look at it this way.

The majority of movie star types are short...Selma Hayek is only (a smokin hot) 5'3"
