Bad Monkey Keeping it Weird

 

Bad Monkey Keeping it Weird

 

On Friday night I went to my very first blogging event, Davestin! I had a great time at Opal Divine’s. I even took the bus downtown from work, though I hitched a ride back with Wayne. I think there were thirteen people there, including myself, though I may have lost count of some of the later arrivals. I spent most of the evening talking with Dave, Karla, Mags and Badger (and, of course, Wayne and Christy).

 

In addition to the custom badge and cool button-flair pictured to the right, Dave also handed out decks of playing cards featuring his artwork. I had wanted to order a deck of these cards before, but figured Wayne had probably ordered eight — which he had. I was going to get one from him, but now I don’t have to — Yeah!

By the way, the shrimp tacos at Opal Divine’s were the best I’ve ever had.

It would be nice if I could take the bus more often and more places, but it just doesn’t work out that way. The nearest stop is five miles from my house and requires a transfer to get to work. There’s also the issue of picking up my kids and delivering them to whatever after-school activity they have that day. Oh, well.

    I’m glad the conversation was as thick as the queso.

    what I really like is that now we have two Gravatar icons in the comment boxes.

    Dave2, I look forward to my next opportunity to participate in such an event.

    whall, I’m glad the people were no where near as thick as the queso!

    Janna, there was a good bit of button envy regarding that button. 🙂

    whall, I’m glad you like it. I’m glad you like it.

    I disabled the Gravatar plugin since my theme apparently has Garvatar support built-in.
