urban creature: Grogblogging

Saturday, January 15, 2005
Last night I went along to the Grogblogging event and was surrounded by heaps of people (wearing nametags) who make up the Melbourne blogosphere.

I was great to meet up with bloggers in person and the venue was nice, although a little loud. Considering that bloggers tend to like the sound of their own voice (I know I do), a quieter venue next time may be beneficial.

I managed to meet Agent Fare Evader, Ms Fits, Evan, Chris Fryer, and had interesting discussions with some guy who is involved in Labor Left (can't remember his name, sorry). Also bumped into Brent (who I know from the Democrats). There were heaps of other people there too but because of a combination of drunkeness and poor lighting, I couldn't read their nametags so didn't end up meeting them or remembering them.

I didn't stay long as I promised a friend I'd meet up with her for drinks to help celebrate her 18th birthday. Speaking of which, I think I drank too much last night because it's currently 2pm and the seediness still hasn't worn off.

Me too. And it's nearly three.

Disgraceful. My hangover was put to an early death by several panadol, a large coffee and some fried mushrooms.

The Labor Left guy was Tillops (profilesincowardice.blogspot.com).

Tillops is labor left? He didn't admit that to me, not that I've picked a faction yet. It's kinda hard to discern the diff sometimes.

Don't know if we met- i was in monkey tee shirt. However, let me see: you'll have to give a vote to "proud to be right" as he was the only RWDB at grogblog!
