Meet the Punters

So I had another gathering with some of the Punters on Friday night. Of course, you all know this, as the only people who read this are pretty much said Punters. To the rest of you, thank you so much for visiting. The horse doovers are over on the card table in the corner, please leave all gifts at the door (ok, just inside) and all basic drinks are on the house. No, not spirits, do I look like a charity?

Anyway, back to the topic at hand. The Punters do was a fairly quiet affair, farewell drinkies for Chesty. However a couple of said Punters brought along their significant others, as much as one of said 'others' is a blogger in her own right. They seemed really nice, but I did find myself wondering exactly what they made of the gathering. Just how interesting/cool/non-sleep inducing is it to hang out with a bunch of people who you have never met, and who spend the evening talking about that hysterical post the other day when so and so totally flamed thingamajig.

I reckon that is about as interesting as someone say talking about computer games or wine or....something.

So, what do you think? Should 'others' be subjected to these experiences, even if they are willing participants. Are they doing so just to see who your weird internet friends are? What did these 'others' think of the whole thing (be gentle - ok, don't)?

These questions and many more will be answered when we return to....

As the newest puner, I found it terribly interesting to find out:

1. Chesty does not, as previously suspected, carry streamers with her at all times
2. Neither does Mex have a thing for ponchos
3. Mushroom likes homoerotic activities such as early morning fishing
4. AB pretends not to love being called mumsy but will bring out pictures of her kids at any mention of the words "mother", "mum", "kids", "the", etc...
5. WJ lies - your hair is exactly like your picture.

Hee ... MrL (and I'll speak on his behalf) was curious to meet you guys, and to put faces to names. He did find the blog talk a little dull, but seemed to enjoy himself. It would also be fair to mention that he has met the Shrooms and MissB before, as well as MissB's kids and hub.

I don't think it's all that different to me going along to a gathering of his friends. There's stuff I don't understand. There are people I don't know. Only difference being that he doesn't end up hiding in a corner, whereas I do.

I can't think of a witty end to this comment.

but I had it cut on Saturday, Mel, so now it is pretty short. Actually, it looks a bit like that guy from... erm, The Terminat... never mind.

plus it was the 3rd weekend of the month so the loincloth got an airing as well.

Note to self - get a second loincloth to avoid impressing the beJesus out of the new girls who moved in next door..

i think 'others' should come if they arent too scared to met us (because we're all so scary of course) - but i guess that is really where the interest lies with the 'others'...

they want to see who their significant other talks to online all day - and if the self confessed google-stalker in the corner stalks offline as well...

Hope you all had fun, you ker-razy kids. I've been celebrating an Islamic public holiday in bed with new lust interest...

Aww, now I am sad I was away. Sounds like it was fun.
