Snopesters, and jam, and... and... God, I'm tired.

Yesterday was the second annual Midwest Snopester Meet, up at the Detroit Zoo. Great time, to say the least, and a chance to see a few people I have wanted to put faces to a screen name.

Admittedly, we looked a little odd...

1. Nametags. Nametags with screen names, not with real names. Lots easier to work with.
2. Constant searching for water misters, since it was 95.
3. Congregating in the Penguinarium, all 20 of us. Have to meet somewhere, right? :-)
4. Devastating the poor buffet at Mongolian BBQ. 20 hungry people who haven't eaten all day, at a buffet. Doom!

Most excellent way to spend the day. :-)

As a relaxation today, I pulled out the saucepan and made some jams. Strawberry, and a peach-blackberry. Yum. :-D

God, I'm tired. :-p

(waves) Hi, it's me from snopes. I've only been to Detroit once, and never left the airport. The Quiznos there is very good, though. It sounds like you had a great time!
