Party Notes

Well, the first thing I have to say is that I'm too old for this sort of thing. A few hundred of my closest friends isn't my idea of fun anymore. Like I said, I'm just too old for this stuff.

That being said, I'm glad I got to show up—even though no one knew me. It was nice to see that there are so many people in the area who shared a common interest. Maybe if I hadn't gotten there an hour and a half after the start it would have been better. Work gets in the way all the time doesn't it?

I was a bit surprised by Scoble: he's a little taller than I had expected. Robert appears to be a little over six feet tall. I have no idea why I would have expected him to be smaller, but I did.

One thing that I did miss was his trademark laugh. I'm certain that he must have laughed sometime while I was there. But it was so crowded and so loud, that I never heard it.

Next time there is an event similar to this, I'll probably pass unless it's a dinner. It will have to be less crowded then. Like I said, I'm too old for this—I'll take food over drink. Of course if we had both...
