Reflections

Okay. Now that I have actually calmed down a bit, and had a nice steaming mug of tea, I can try and gather my wildly rampaging thoughts of the evening. Here are some moments and flashes from the evening:

  • Being the IRC host. I hope nobody thought I was badly drunk - I just could not see the keyboard because I was in the corner and there was only little light.
  • Windows (the one running the big screen) crashed at the beginning of the show. Yay. Hopefully nobody noticed.
  • (We should've projected the IRC channel on screen in the cases where we knew the winner was on the channel - note to self)
  • Being the IRC host was fun also because I got to be a proxy for people - I delivered a kiss to Shine (though I did not know that she was Shine, bugger), hugged Tira & Mindy, and would have had my face bashed in by Mikki, IF I had delivered the requested kiss.
  • Getting a chance to talk with the beautiful, smart and talented Kanerva, the evening's only double winner. It was a pleasure.
  • The man who walked in, looked at us with some relief on his face and said: "Good. I was almost certain this was a hoax, you know."
  • For once in my life, having an ample amount of drink coupons in my pocket. Drinks that someone else would pay for.
  • Being called "the second best dressed man in the room". By a lady I did not know beforehand, nonetheless. Of course, the best dressed man was Mike P, but I'm used to losing to him. Losing things like my Robin Hood tapes. Grr.
  • Being in the corner for the most of the show, and missing a lot mostly because a tall Greek God blocked my view. But the IRC party was cool, even though the GPRS was patchy at times.
  • My very own award :)
  • Seeing all of the people mingle, talk, get to know each other. So many were present (I counted 50 at one point, probably missed a few). It felt good.
  • Earl Grey's nice hat, which I completely neglected to mention during the evening, so I'll do it here.
  • "Yeah, I read that in your blog. It was funny."
  • The feeling of fulfilment after all of the plotting and scheming.

Yeah, even if I have to come and wrestle them from you...

Okay, now that you've come and wrestled the tapes from me, you can tell me who it was that commented on our fashion senses.
