I’ve been back and everything, but damn. What took me so long? I found my camera but I can’t find the cable. Fate: 1, EJ: 0. So now you know. I’ll have to be sans photos for the time being.
The currently unnamed Blogosphere (c’mon guys, I really can’t think of the name now either. I’m 0 for 2) was a wonderful meeting. Only 3 short hours, I think I gathered enough to simply say that I’m going to make myself available for the next time, which is to be happening next month in NYC. As for the people, well here they are:
P6 – Earl Dunovant. You gotta realize that he’s got a lot on his plate. And now meeting him, listening to Stay In My Corner while standing next to the BBQ joint, you’re like “oh no, this man takes Bloglines by storm and makes him a man with many thoughts.” I gotta say that he’s gotta lotta stuff in his head and ain’t none of it bad.
Madison For President/DieselNation/Hashim Warren. He’s got a lot going on, I declare. A softspoken man, who raps, is a blogcritic, and has a lot he wants to say, but like us, not enough time to say it. I believe he was uplifting and uplifted.
Steven G. Fullwood. More humor and insight than the law allows. Please, y’all, don’t sleep.
Lynne D. “Where’s Prometheus 6? Oh, he’s right here next to me.” Johnson. We could talk about her all day. Just know that LateNightTales, MadTV spoofs, and doing the Cabbage Patch in the middle of the BBQ Joint makes you appreciate the many facets of her.
Singing happy birthday to Donald Agarrat was a treat. Still trying to find out who that guy Eric is though. The next time I come down to NYC, I’ll have to make sure we take Ronn out with us.
James Knox, who I’ve known for more than 15 years, and haven’t seen in almost 5, pulling me out of the joint because if I don’t get outta there, I will miss my flight.
“What the Hell is Orkut and why are people still using it?”
A general chuckle during the exclamation of “Negros don’t even know what hiatus means.”
MIA – Magic Negro, JSmooth, TrayC (still on a summer vacation), Kev, Nathan, Christopher’s Cypher, Patrick, Bernie. There’s also three other ones that come immediately to mind that should have been on the list also. You’ve gotta love it. They have to be around the next time.
In my to-do list (don’t even think I’ve forgotten:)
1. Somebody’s birthday.
2. Same Sex Marriages – the One–Two–Three punch.
3. More reviews. Hanging out with Ewedontno, Lynne, Hashim, and James helped me a lot. I even got some Cuban notes courtesy of Phillipe, another blogger I’ve known for many moons. Broke me too.
4. Hermes. I’m a sucker for a big laptop.
5. Prime, comin’ back home.
