Cellar IRL

Seems like there would be a thread for real-life Cellarites meeting up and hanging out...?

Pooka and I are up here in the Pacific Northwest, right now waiting for Mr. BigV and company to arrive. We mentioned to the folks that we are staying with that we are 'going out to dinner with some friends we only know from the internet' --which sounds weird, I guess when you put it that way.

I guess the only other Cellarites we've hooked up with was when we took our kids on a play date with clodfobble and crew.



Anyone have any interesting stories about meeting people from the Cellar in real life?

I sold a laptop to Jim last week;

Also last week, xoB came over and looked at my new place, and in particular my oil heat setup. He gave me advice on how to get it up and running, and heating only the zones I want to heat.

That was not a normal week though.

And of course none of that ever happened, because pics or it didn't happen.

I've met several dwellars; but, since I've not posted my name or picture and didn't introduce myself they still don't know it.


Not really, just thought I'd creep you out.

I've met monster, beest, their kids (wonderful kids) and infinite monkey.

I'd love to meet more of you-but funds keeps me close to home.

Oh, I've also met Juniper. We've even been in the same deadly class: 19th C. British texts. Mind-numblingly dull but a great prof.

Dana and Limey.
Am almost scared to meet any other Dwellars in case they don't live up to the marvellousness of these two.

I talk to Brianna periodically on the phone.
I'm not a phone person, it's not my preferred method of communication.
But I could talk to her for hours and always regret that she is so far away when I put down the phone.

ETA - met CycleFrance in London. He was very gentlemanly and bought me a drink.

I met BrianR when he was driving through Austin once. (Or do I say she now, even though it was still "he" back then? I don't know the etiquette.) It was late at night in a Home Depot parking lot, which sounds sort of creepy when you say it that way.

I met plthijinx at his old racetrack job while he kindly tried to beat my stupid broken down minivan into submission for me. He let me drive around the track a few times (in a race car, not my minivan,) and it was fun.

Monster & Beest and their kids once came to my house for an afternoon. Their kids crack me up. Thor rode a tricycle in tiny circles in my entryway. Hebe asked for a glass of milk, which I remember because at that time, I actually still had some in the house.

Flint & Pooka and their kids (and Pooka's mom even!) met me and my kids at a hippie outdoor burger place with a playscape. That place is closed now, and I'm so bummed because it was the only place near me to get a good GF burger.

Myself, Mr. Clod, and Minifob have all spoken to Sundae on the phone at various times. She even sang a song together with Minifob, it was adorable.

Gosh I forgot our chat!

I do remember stealing a march on everyone by announcing the birth of Fobbette though, and how graciously you accepted it

There should be a little microphone picture icon somewhere near the keyboard. Tap that and it goes into listening mode.

Huh. I've got a gear, a bird, a landscape, and a camera.

No little microphone, ear, stethoscope, or 'listening' device.

Interestingly, no idea what the little bird does. Makes 3 dollars fly out of my pocket? It's the developer giving me the bird?

This is really cool and all, but I'm gonna say Philly hook-ups don't count...?

Kidding, but Pooka and I are a long way from home, in Portland (apparently the "Austin" of Oregon--funny, because our other Dwellar meeting was in the Austin of Texas), and on top of that, BigV went to GREAT LENGTHS to drive down here from WA, just to have dinner with us. I mean, you Philly cats need to be having brunch every frickin' Sunday.

BigV, by the way, is exactly the same guy in person. Totally class act. He looked a little like a cross between a wise old owl and a scary biker--the combined effect of which was a little like Theoden of Rohan.

Plus, I got a sneak preview of a few "What is This" ideas!

(Sworn to secrecy...)

Right, so those icons are all above the keyboard, right? But way down in the bottom left, between the comma and the "hide the keyboard" keyboard button, I have a microphone button. However, I have an HTC One, so it may be different for you...

Hey Flint, you don't get to impose rules on GTGs!
(okay, only saying that because we can never achieve the same distances in the UK)

Although my Mum meeting Ali has to be one of the longest trips undertaken to meet a Dwellar. Ahem.
