Went to a LiveJournal Meetup this evening. I didn't stay long, but I did get to meet voider and caprine in real life, and saw samuraimeg who had been at my gaming afternoon this last Saturday. (She is also apparently nolly's evil twin. Bloody small world created by the intersection of San Diego, LiveJournal, and oddly social geeks...)

My first hint that I was in the right place came from overhearing fishnetfatale and stop_no_dont talking as I walked in the door, and "LiveJournal" was the word I picked out. Clever.

Had a nice conversation with voider about operating systems and similar (computer) geek topics. Another person there (all I got was her real name "Kathy") joined us, claiming it was the only conversation she understood. Oh dear.

A good time. I'll try to make more meetups (and also caprine's musical thing, third Saturday or so) in the future...

Ah excellent. If you do have another one, I'll make heartily attempt to join. One of these days I have to have lunch with you too.

I'm 75 mins north of y'all for the week in Hemet visiting grandmother. Needed some time away from SD Co.

Re: There are only 200 people in San Diego.

And all the weird subcultures overlap; count pentacles at a sci-fi con, floggers at a Faire, etc.

It is my occasional theory that all the weird subcultures are being drawn into a convergence by the gravitational pull of my ass.

Nice to finally meet you in meatspace. Yes, very small world indeed. When I started dating voider, whom I met at Conjecture 2 last October, I found out that half my cicle of geek friends are people he knows from college, ComicCon, or the workplace. And I can't walk into Lestat's without bumping into someone I know from the SCA, Goth nightclubs, or the BDSM community.

The lady you spoke with (Karen, actually) is impboysd's wife; she's not on LJ.

You might enjoy the Science Fiction Meetup and the Roleplayers Meetup.
