I just found out the other day (contrary to what I believed) that Byron (Neobican) and I are NOT the only SDMB posters in the Des Moines area. Boli lives here, too. What’s more, she lives in the same neighborhood! How cool is that? (We believe we should get some sort of recognition for having the closest proximity… she lives about two blocks away from me.)
We decided to meet up this evening at Perkin’s and blab over coffee. Of course, we discussed the MB, shared interesting stories about ourselves, and generally had each other in stitches for the better part of three hours. Unfortunately, we had to cut it short since she works during the day.
Among the things we talked about:
Username pronunciation. She had a blank look when I said “Yutie-chews” (Eutychus). When she realized who I was talking about, she said she always read it as “Yuticuss.”
Now I have no idea if I’ve been pronouncing it right. She thought that Nickrz is “Nick RZ”… I think it’s “Knickers.”
The Female Condom and menstrual cups. Thankfully this discussion took place long after I finished my reduced-fat-no-sugar-added wildberry pie.
Annoying posters. I’m not mentioning any names, but it’s probably not what you think.
All in all, a thoroughly enjoyable experience. Boli, thanks a heap and expect me to call you soon about going to a movie.
Let’s hear 'em. Your first IRL meeting with another poster. Dish.
