Thirsty like the wolf

I made a brief appearance last night at my first Meetup™ blog meetup, which happened to be in the same place as SOCHI's happy hour. There were quite a few familiar faces names blogs um... there were quite a few people there who have blogs that I've seen: Suds & Soliloquies (post about the meetup), Mark Maynard, 90% Crud, Vacuum, etc.

I'm not sure that I belong to the Ann Arbor School of weblogs. I'm not sure I belong to any school at all. Belonging to a school seems like such a commitment and like you have to share values and interests with people. I'm all about non-affiliation.

Ze srah, she is ze lone wolf. She will stop by your table in ze smoky bar of life and be humbled by your knowledge of techie bloggie stuff and Ann Arbor-area politics, but zen she will go and blog about her socks.

:'( Sorry, George! We are quiet and we all thought we were alone in our ignorance!

I do like the idea of rival gangs in the Ann Arbor School of Weblogs, though. Can we sing and dance like in West Side Story? That's the best kind of gangs!

You know, I hadn't heard of this Meetup.com thing until I just read about it and so I went over there and set up an account in the hopes that I could (and I'm serious here) set up a Meetup for people who wanted to talk behind the backs of people they hate or who annoy them in their lives.

But unfortunately, the closest thing I could find (category wise) had to do with polygamy and vampires. Hmmph.
