I’m over at Alpha Theta at the moment, where a bunch of people are playing games of various types, and I’m sitting on the couch hanging out with Randy Milholland and Iris, watching him drawing obscene sketches. It’s been a really chill and fun afternoon thus far, and I just wanted to post really quickly to say so.
[Update 8/7/2005: All in all, I had a really great time hanging out over at Alpha Theta, hanging out with everyone until around 3am, playing Taboo and Dance Dance Revolution. Randy has an unsurprising but incredible knack for description, and kicked some serious ass at Taboo despite it being his first time playing. Iris is both beautiful and intelligent, and an absolutely blast to hang out with — I hope to do so again soon. There were many other cool people that I got to talk to while there, but I’m really lousy with names and would rather not butcher them, so let me just say the folks over at Alpha Theta are definitely cool. After the initial “who the hell are you” phase of the first minute or so of being there, I felt really welcomed and in the company of good people for the rest of the evening, and that’s really something to value. ]
