Thanks to everyone who attended the Chicagoland meet-up this weekend. It was, as always, so much fun. I loved meeting everyone new and seeing everyone who I haven't seen in awhile, and getting the opportunity to spend time with so many truly amazing people—even though I always feel like I don't get enough time with everyone who attends; there's always someone I'm just about to go sit down with when my food arrives, or someone new walks in the door, and I don't talk to them again until they're leaving. I need better mingling management skillz!
My gratitude to RedSonja for coordinating RSVPs to the event once again, and to RedSonja and KarateMonkey for nametag organization.
Random Notes: Anything worth eating at all should always be eaten with gusto (especially squid, if you're into that sort of thing). Laughing makes costochondritis simultaneously better and worse. These are the ZOMG Shoez I was wearing. Anyone who has ever used the term "humorless feminists" should spend a few minutes at a Shakesville meet-up. A good thing to do before bed is stick your feet in the freezer. True fact.
Also: I found a pair of fingerless gloves left behind on a table. Email me to claim them.
