phat l00t  

It has proven to be Phat L00t For Young Indiana Day. Not only did the mailman this morning deliver a gorgeous hand-made bright purple bib (which immediately went on him, as all the rest of his bibs are in the wash) from Mary Anne who I have known DEAR GOD TWENTY YEARS THIS MONTH ahem, but then this afternoon two octopus-decorated bath towels and a ridiculous little toy My First Cephalopod arrived from Blue Haired Angie. Thank you both very much. *beams*

The Irish postal system is actually bizarrely good, so if it managed to get out of the States in a timely fashion, yeah. Whoosh, there it is. :) And it's a lovely bib, thank you! He has drooled on it already. :)

TWENTY YEARS!

Huh, color me impressed.

Do you remember where/how we actually met? I assume an early interaction was dr byrd's class but I have no recollection of whether that was our first meeting

I have no idea. Dr Byrd's class or the Viking High Council, I can't remember. :)

I don't remember meeting the VHC for the first time either. I am hard pressed to remember the first time I met most of my friends - there are maybe three or four folks. I know when/where I met a number of folks (first day of work, at school, at camp, etc) but even then I don't have an actual memory of the encounter. But a number of my friends have said they do remember our first meeting. Maybe it is related to visualization or lack thereof?

*nods* Known you nearly that long, too. Pretty sure I met you and Catie and Ted in, what, summer of '92? I know I first visited UAF in January of '93, but thought I'd met at least you already.

I went with Murph to the Renn Faire in Anchorage the summer of 91 (at the Tudor Tracks), so we might've met briefly then. My first memory of you was the first or second summer that the Faire was on the big-ass hill, the one year that I was a "guard" at the Blue Court. I think that was the summer before Ted and Catie came and were "guards" at the Red Court.

Hng. That must have been '93, and I know I met Ted that January (I have pix of him and April). Pretty damn sure that's when I met you; I think Catie may well have been part of it too. I know it's when I met Dale.

Also, IIRC, I missed '91 due to health junk, so we wouldn't have met then.

Well, I remember very clearly meeting you on the hill -- you were making out with Leif.....And I'm pretty sure Ted and Catie hadn't come that summer.

Just you wait until someone gives him a plush Cthulhu!

I love the idea of My First Cephalopod!
