Blog social: Post–social analysis

Well last night I attended my second blog social. T'was fun, got to meet most of the hardcore bloggers last night that weren't at the first one I went to. Well I say meet…

I decided to once again totally ignore Simon's advice that blog socials are all about walking about, talking to people, running out of things to say and moving on to more random people, and as per usual sat down and waited for some poor unsuspecting victim to either start conversation with me, or leave themselves exposed for me to jump in on a conversation with them. To start with, I briefly met Kim, who seemed lovely. Then Jill and Victoria turned up. I'd met them before so caught up with them, and narrowly avoided (at least I hope I avoided!) offending Victoria again when I was inquisitive about the relevance of Classics. Not that I was rude or insulting you understand, just inquisitive... Was cool to catch up with them anyway. I learned later on in the evening that Victoria has rather scary (well it was scary to me) independent eyebrow control... Also probably scared the lot of them (and Mia (another new lovely person who I met) too) when discussing cars and aeroplane fuel consumption rates with Simon. Sorry about that guys, but you really shouldn't have led me onto that sort of subject or let me carry on! Also had a good chat with Luke, a chap I forgot the name of, and also Thomas made a second appearance.

All in all, a fun and relaxing evening. Hope to see you all at the next one guys!

On a seperate note, was shocked to discover this morning that I am one of Warwick blog's top 30 contributors (by volume of comments). For the top 50, check out the list here.

    And I do fear your eyebrow Victoria… Was nice to see you too.

  4. Yeah, that fuel consumption rate discussion has left me scarred for life and with an irrational fear of values with gallons/minute units.

    "Chap I forgot the name of" may well have been Iyobosa – I spent a good amount of time chatting to him.

    And thanks for that link to the postwhores lead commenters list, I've been looking for that!

    So, did you try playing enemy territory after?

  11. Haven't had a chance to check it out yet, my first exam is tomorrow morning and my schedule is (supposedly meant to be) pretty hectic right now I'm afraid. It's high on my to-do list once it's all over!

    Hey Chris, how come I can't post on some threads now????

    Is it some technical type problem?

    18 May 2005, 12:38

  13. Hey Trace, no it isn't. I'm afraid I got rather fed up with unsigned users posting ridiculous comments, so a couple of the entries are signed-in users only. I'm sorry about this but it's the only way I could think of getting rid of it all. If you want to contribute to a locked post, then please e-mail me with your comments and I'll upload them for you under your name (contact me button at the top). Again, I'm sorry that this is inconvenient, but this is one of the downsides of having a public blogging system like this :-(

  14. Additional: I had also set some permissions to staff/students by accident. Someone alerted me of this and I have corrected it. So check the entry that you were looking to post on first, it may have just been an administrative cock-up on my part :-$ Sorry!
