On Happy and Not So Hours

Life is funny. One minute you learn of the death of the "transient" named Art you've known all your life and the next a *crazy* Italian woman named Gabriella (who is walking her cat on a diamond-studded leash) tells you of your (nonexistent) resemblance to Ivanka Trump.

These are the happy and not so hours.

The very next moment you learn the "transient" is not dead but your friend working in Ghana watched her colleague perish in exactly the same way you thought Art did.

These are the happy and not so hours.

Friday's blogger event was phenomenally fun. I enjoyed very much geek-talking Net Neutrality with Martin of Boztopia, meeting the multi-talented little league coach Throwing Hammers, reminiscing Atlanta with Mr. Anthrope, and conducting clandestine experiments in touching the Rambler. Life even threw in a run-in with a high school friend I hadn't seen in 12 years.

These hours are just plain happy.

The remainder of the weekend was spent listening to Last Train Home (IOTA, Saturday night) and Kris Delmhorst (Jammin Java, Sunday night).

These hours are sublimely happy indeed.

Atlanta rules.

Found you!

Martin here. It was such a pleasure to talk to you and Gina on Friday. You ladies rocked my world and several adjacent dimensions as well.

Hope to talk to you again soon.

"run-in with a high school friend I hadn't seen in 12 years"

That was Meg! Too crazy that I drag in my old coworker to blog HH, who's been out of the country for almost a year, and she finds someone she knows! Crazy! So nice meeting you.

Hammer said...

Excellent to meet you as well, and glad to hear I wasn't the only dork who talked to Martin about net neutrality. I dunno about "multi-talented" though - it may be more a case of adult A.D.D.

OOH look!!! Something shiny!!!

Gotta go...

Martin said...

Heh heh.

I was so worried that I would be boring people to tears with my rants on NN, and it astonishes me that, with all the gorgeous people, flowing alcohol, and booty shakin' going on, that I had so many cool conversations about it.

Who says the kids today are shallow, eh? :)

Phil - yes it does.

Martin, KasseyK, and Hammer - thanks! I was nice to meet you, too.

Marci - it was totally wild to run into Megan (Meg, as you call her).
