Okay, enough with the ribs. Truth is, I was so tired when I got to his party, a lot of it was a blur. The night before, I babysat his kids, and I had some of the most amazing conversations with aksident until like 1am. I got to his party early and ended up helping clean as well (I did dusting and vacuuming). Then I went with stodgycat to pick up ninjacooter. We got food.
Then the party guests started to trickle in. There were a LOT of ex-AOL employees there. stodgycat said he pretty much emptied his address book. Many of them I hadn't seen for a long while. One of them was my former boss, "El Korbo," as we used to call him. He was a old-school computer geek (1970s tech) I think a fish out of water at AOL, but he's thriving as a photographer these days. I got him introduced to Anime conventions a while back, and now he's running Digital Cosplay. I hung out with the likes of Rich Anderson, Ray Catabay, Brian Symmes, Benu Bhargava, and even John Patterson was there.
But I was winding down fast. My feet hurt so bad, they were swelling. I got a ride back with moliarity and lohquesse, and had to leave during the cake part (I tried to take pictures, but my batteries died).
And spent Sunday sick. In fact, I am not well as a type this, and probably did not give the party a decent review that it deserved; I DID have a lot of fun, and want to thank stodgycat and cheesy_reads for having me.
