Social in spite of myself

I probably should have just stayed home and kept my leg elevated last night, but instead I decided to go over to the MNSTF meeting and wish mplscorwin a happy birthday. Which I did; skylarker was there, along with a lot of younger folks I didn't recognize, and a handful of the Old Guard who gave me the obligatory snubs. Haw! The open and welcoming arms of Minneapolis fandom, indeed! It made me feel all warm inside.

Didn't hang around long since phoenixalpha was intent on avoiding Mommie Dearest, and besides I wanted to swing by Claycon and do some of the kill-and-be-killed Unreal deal. Which we did; once phoenixalpha mastered the controls and unleashed her b33r-fueled 1337 skillz, she kicked much ass. It was fun to watch, and I enjoyed it tremendously since I usually got trapped in corners and croaked quickly. We took off a little after 2330, refueled the Sportage, and got home in time to catch the last half of Strictly Butter and the opening hour of the Root Man Show. Which kept me up way too late, but you know that already.

Which Unreal Tournament is it? The old one, 2003, or 2004?

We were doing the Invasion scenario...it would shift us to new maps as soon as we destroyed a wave of monsters. A lot tougher than it looks, even with 5-6 people blowing the crap out of the monsters.

I'm sorry if I seemed to be snubbing you. I definitely didn't intend to.

Not you, man, we're cool - I figured in your case since we'd only seen each other a couple times at Clay's and elsewhere it was a "I know that guy from somewhere, but who the heck is he?" look. There were a couple of other folks on the porch who I nodded and smiled to and got the frozen puss in return. No big deal; I've come to expect it from some people and think it's kind of funny.
