Some time ago, ehowton posted about the difference between an introvert and extrovert being how one recharges, not how they go about their daily life; ergo, a social-butterfly is not necessarily an extrovert–in fact, they would be an introvert if they recharged by introspection. (Eric, if you can find that post, I'll edit this one and link to it.)

Last week, I attended Huntsville Beer and Blog for the first time, hat tip to mrs_dragon's post here (see #80).

The meet up was very enjoyable, free-flowing table-long discussion that didn't stop until the last person left. Several new Twitter connections were made, tech conversations abounded, etc.

I was introduced to Leo Laporte and then ran into him twice this week on the Net; you'll especially enjoy the explanation of how the Old Spice Superbowl commercial was filmed. I was also introduced to the concept of barcamp because @bnbhuntsville is planning one for April 30th. (site, Twitter) I even threw out my idea for a social experiment (tentatively launching next Wednesday) and got excellent feedback. Overall, I was impressed and happy to have found a group that I thought I was going to fit into really well.

I couldn't wait to go back this week and have more fun. What started out as horsing around on Twitter between @Harold, @shaggerty and @Alarican turned into a much worthwhile attendance tonight. @Harold made his third appearance since @bnbhuntsville started meeting and I must say he was a very valuable addition to the conversation. @shaggerty served humanity simply by showing up after I had given up hope that she would attend, but the biggest surprise came from @Alarican: Turns out, we have lived in the same apartment complex together for over a year and a half! We hit it off immediately and I look forward to spending more time with my new friend and friends.

While en passant it would be nice if I would have found about about @bnbhuntsville when it first formed, I'm reminded that everything has a time and a place and I'm glad that I got involved with @bnbhuntsville when I did.

To everyone who didn't make it out tonight that was there last week, I hope to see you next week.

You're right - surprise ending. As in, "Where the fuck is the surprise ending?" SURPRISE!

I'll help you with some clues this one time: Turns out that my neighbor of a year-and-a-half goes to the same event as I do.

Small world.

Oh yeah that - AWESOME. And it sounds like you've found a good niche. Also - WHAT FUN! And beer. Well, that sorta speaks for itself.

Let's not start sucking each other's dicks just yet. That was more like "Playskool My First Foreshadowing" and doesn't *really* add up to a "clue" which required "solving."
