Pleased to Meet Me

Even though it's still a week away and I'm not exactly, y'know, involved in the festival, Nerdapalooza has taken up the bulk of my focus and energy of late. Still, I'm hoping to hatch a least a couple more posts – specifically a new podcast and an album review – before I begin my long trek down Orlando-way next Friday.

But before I tend to those tasks, I find myself in need of your input, faithful readers.

At Nerdapalooza 2009 there was a special, informal event known as the Hipster, please! Meet-and-Greet. Yes, I am well aware that I didn't attend Nerdapalooza 2009, let alone my own meet-and-greet, but that's neither here nor there.

My question is simple; would those of you in attendance like to do something like this again this year?

Let me be straight with you: this isn't at all about meeting me. That shit is laughable. Rather, it's just about tying in with some folks before the event to hang out, introduce ourselves and maybe make some new friends.

Because of this year's extended performance schedule – 10:00 AM to 11:00 PM both days – finding a time to meet-up before the day's events is a bit of a daunting task, but if those of you in and around the Orlando Airport Marriott are interested, I am more than willing to get up a little early so we can convene and shoot the proverbial shit.

If any of you folks are down, just leave a comment and we'll hash out the details. And if not? Well then I'll just see you inside. :)

Let's do it, buddy! Gotta get people up early for Scrub Club church service on Sunday and for Awk on Saturday. :P

I vote for pool party, same as last year. It's really just an excuse for me to wear my awesome vintage snake print bathing suit.

Sounds like a plan, man. Can't wait for some details.. I plan on barely leaving the venue during the festival, and I bet I'll be the first to show at the pre-party again this year. :P

Alright, so it looks like we've got some taker. I think Andrea's idea for a poolside meet-up will work. Should we all grab our respective breakfasts and convene at the pool around 9:00/9:30?

Andrea said...

I will do my absolute best to be there at butt-o-clock in the morning.

You people without kids and your normal wake-up times! ;)
