Argh, my brain has exploded! Sep. 14th, 2004 11:17 pm
LJ tells me I have something like 100 people on my friends list. After a recent trim, 90% of these are people with whom I have some sort of real-world interaction. On an intellectual level, this tells me that I have quite a lot of friends.

Tonight, about half of them (including all my partners) were in the same room, together with a smaller (it seemed) number of people that I don't know. The were also a small number of people who I'd met at bicon and would have liked to chat to.

I was (rarely for me) actually talking to people almost solidly for well over 4 hours. And I still didn't get time to talk to everyone I wanted to. Tonight was quite an overwhelming experience (albeit in a very good way) as people I know from disparate social groups all turned up at once (it also points out that a hell of a lot of my friends are queer).

Gods, life's going to be interesting. Especially with the amount of trouble I think I arranged...

I'm not even going to try and list who was there; however if you were, please comment so I can try and figure just how many people I was talking to.

Hardly surprising that I couldn't recall who I was in the end.

Sounds like fun, can I comment even though I wasn't there? *smile*

Well yeah ;)

You think I'm gonna refuse you looking like that? ;)

It was packed out - but there will be many more.

Yup, I made it home a little while ago.
You did seem to know just about everyone :-)

That actually sounds really fun, though.

I should have realised that buying a biker jacket just before dennyd got back into the London scene could only add to the confusion ;)

He's actually distinctly skinnier than me now though - disturbing. Denny, get over to ours soon and BE FED, damnit ;)

You just bought that jacket? Pre-distressed? Poser ;)

Was good to see you... and yes, you're high on my list of people to visit - once I've managed to settle in enough to remember where I live afterwards.

I've always been distinctly skinnier than you - you have muscles.

No, skinflint ;)

Looking forward to seeing you - our place is big enough for crashspace after visits (you ever been there?)

I said hello to you very briefly. You were smiling lots, which was nice to see.

I think we might have spoken briefly. Can't think about what, though...
