I’ve just been back visiting the fair city of Wellington. It pulled out some craptacular weather for me, and given that I was down there to put up some new words on a fence for OutdoorKnit, it wasn’t an ideal situation.
Luckily, there was a part of the trip that was ideal – timing it with that lovely Hubris woman‘s 30th birthday party. Her XXX Hootenanny, no less. There’s always a danger with costume parties that it’s all a bit naff, but there were some fantastic costumes… and when you succeed on that front, the rest of the night generally follows. Greatly helped along by a pile of alcohol and a vagina cake.
Anyway, I finally got to meet some people I’d been stalking for a while, and feel like I was actually part of the Wellington geek crew rather than just watching wistfully from afar. And now that I’ve met them, I can happily go back to blog and twitter stalking. Yussss.
