Who knows who around here?

OK, I was away for a few months, and a few folks have become more regular posters in that time than they used to be. And in reading the last few weeks of posts, I've noticed several people referring to real time interaction with other posters. I can't remember all of the names, but I think I remember Draven-x mentioning Ms Giles and XanderFan?

So I'm wondering who has (a) met or (b) spoken to other members of the boards in real life.

I'll start with my list, hope I don't forget anyone!

Met: THP, Rosie, Martyn, Tobi, Janus, Angelus, BillY, Zyliq, Boy^, Kelt

Spoken to: Calan, AjaxSerix

I've probably left off people who'll be all offended! If I did, sorry. I left off a bunch of IRC-only people that some of you know, but aren't board members.

So what about the rest of you?

<Edit: I can't believe I left Kelt off that list! Sorry hon...>

I'm actually married to Ms. Giles and best friends with XanderFan. We all went to high school and college together. Well, Ms. Giles went to the University of Iowa while XF and I went to a good school, Iowa State, but that's neither here nor there

Draven-X, Iowa, huh. They got some pretty good wrestling there. Dan Gable and all.

I will be meeting Chetta, as she is coming to Atlanta next month.

I speak to Calan everyday.

I've stood about 5 places behind Ghostface in a queue and seen him get his copy of Fray signed by Joss... but didn't know it was him

I've spoken and exchanged paper mail with a few others here

Well, I've actually met Lynn, Tobi, Angelus, Xander, Caillean, Schainize (the older posters may perhaps remember her ) and a few Germans who lurk here.
I've spoken (via IRC or ICQ) with a few others, too many to list them here .

I've visited my DMT Christy aka Calan several times. I've talked to her boyfriend Angel several times as well. I've talked to Martyn & Tal on the phone. I've also met Micmck & his wife. I almost met Dboy & Jack but that fell through at the last minute. As redgoatee said, we will be trying to get together early next month when I'm in Atlanta.

I trade packages with Jase, navay, smorgana, Teller, RM & mbaskett

I'm sure I'm missing a ton of people too.

Smile

/me sighs deeply

I live in the same town with Agasi and canimal, maybe I've seen them somewhere (most chances I did), but we've never actually met.
Also, navay once sent me a package with S4 episodes, only 2 or 3 weeks after we chatted for the first time (very sweet of her, by the way ). I'm willing to return the favour on her next birthday somehow (damn, did I just blow the surprise? ).
I really want to get in touch (well, at least with packages) with other posters as well, but it's not so easy as I am only 15 and my parents are sort of super-paranoid when it comes to the net. God knows how I snuck in that package from navay without them knowing about it.

Well, I'm married to Foxfire but that all. I've never talked with anyone from the boards on the phone or in person. The only person I've talked to much online is mordax and that's over ICQ so it don't count.

Well, I went to Melbourne and met the great Rachgd, the experience subsequently turning me off board meets for life . J/K, buddy, it was a fantastic two nights of high jinks with you. How goes it in Ireland, bud? Still rockin'?!

I've also spoken to Mel aka Black_Magic but never met, despite living in the same city. Who, may I ask, tipped off her parents?

Oh, and Wader too. If monosyllables constitute 'conversation' .

Can't we use the IRC Boardroom to really talk?! That might be fun! I have a headset with microphone on the UNI. Which would immediately rule out me talking to Dark Wader or Teller, since i have fellow students around who aren't exactly jonesing for an earfull of the kind of conversations those two tend to have...



But no, no RL meetings or conversations.

I haven't met anyone because the doctors don't let me outside because I like to eat people.

And I have spoken to Mel and Nat in the literal sense. Very intresting convos.
And yes, Nat does talk as much as she types

Well they've already mentioned me, but I've spoken to - not met - Nat and DW. On the phone and using net chat, respectively.

That looks really pitiful next to the lists of some of you, though - so who wants to come visit me? Free room and board in my garage and everything!

Spoken with: Zyliq, Martyn, Mordax, Lynn, Redvines, Teller's brother (Does that count?)

I'm sure I'm forgetting someone....

Actually now that I think about it, I've talked via internet phone to Teller, Silvercoil and Redvines I think.

And I've also met Schainize, another German poster, but she hasn't posted here much in a long time.

As Nat dear said, we met. We drank. We partied. She gave me a claggagh that I wear to this day... and that she bought on sale. Oh, the fun we had. (When we weren't forgetting the lyrics to various songs. Long story.)

Otherwise, nada, though I have co-opted more than one of our board members into writing for me at various times, among them long-lost ambrosis, as well as Sepra, Teller and WC-Kai. (Yes, Kai, I know I owe you an e-mail! How's the hair?)

By the way, Nat: have tearfully left Dublin behind and am currently working in London, temping by day, backpacker-ing by night. James Marsters is signing at Forbidden Planet at the end of this month... not too bad, that.

DW: And in case you were curious, yes, I too talk as much as I type. It's a wonder Nat and I managed to converse at all!

<After Edit> How could I not mention my IRC-ing buddies? Long-neglected by me, I'm afraid, but well beloved all. You know who you are! (What do you mean IRC isn't real life? Ha!)

Xander/Lynn: You yourself, Mordax, are considered more or less cool.



Rach: Hopefully we'll extend your list at Christmas. Hey! Since you're in London you should go to the Bad Girls convention (check out www.starfury.co.uk) - I'm hoping to get there, though not sure yet. And there are lots of English posters you could meet... though I warn you some of them are loonies.

I would personally like to apologize for the remarks made by Draven-X (aka Mr. Ms. Giles).

The University of Iowa kicks ass. Iowa State gives a free cow to every incoming freshman. Nuff said.

And if I may be so bold...*ahem*

The word is fight, fight, fight for Iowa
Let every loyal Iowan sing
The word is fight, fight, fight for Iowa
Until the walls and rafters ring - GO HAWKS!!!
Come on and cheer, cheer, cheer for Iowa
We're gonna cheer until we hear the final gun
The word is fight, fight, fight for Iowa
Until the game is won!

Excuse me, Ms. Giles, but I believe this is a thread for acknowledging which people on this board you know in real life. *Cough, cough, me, cough, cough* Not for publicly admitting the humiliation of going to a crappy crappy university such as Iowa.
