Blogger Dinner and stuff…

I’ve just got back from the blogger dinner in Birmingham. The list of names was like reading a “who’s who” of Oracle. Thanks very much to Mark Rittman for organizing it. Mark, if they don’t give you the money back drop me a line and I’ll send you some cash πŸ™‚

It was like a giant blind date. You know a little bit about the people, and you’ve even emailed some of them, but you don’t really know them. Luckily I recognized Mark Rittman and Peter Scott from their blog pictures, so I knew I was with the correct group of people πŸ™‚

It’s really odd to be recognized by “strangers”. I know this was true for everyone else with a picture on their blog, but it doesn’t make it less strange. I can tell Doug Burns and Peter Scott have been reading because they were both well versed in my list of injuries! I went straight from Karate to the dinner so I had some of the latest bruises on display, my left forearm is a little brown and the right forearm is going to be a mess in a couple of days. Note to self. Shins and forearms don’t go well together!

Anyway, to those I didn’t talk to, I’m really sorry. It would have been nice if we had more time. To those I did talk to, I’m really sorry… πŸ˜‰

By the way Niall, I forgot to thank you for the book review. Cheers guy!

Great to see everyone, and your secrets are safe with me πŸ™‚

Update: Mark has some pictures of the dinner on his blog. You can quite clearly see my hand, the back of my head and my ear. The joys of being photogenic…

Cheers

PS. I watched Saw 2 at the cinema the other day. A few gore-fest bits, but not really scary and not really that interesting. If you liked the first film you’ll probably like this. If not, then don’t bother…

PPS. I watched a Manga (Japanimation) film called AppleSeed on DVD the other day. It’s pretty spectacular as far as the animation is concerned! I’ve been a big fan of Ghost in the Shell (the film and Stand Alone Complex) for some time, but for some reason I’ve only just got round to watching AppleSeed. If you like great animation it, go for it…

  1. Yes, I wish we had been able to sit at one big table instead of two – There were many I did not get the opportunity to talk to because of the seating (and we never really introduced ourselves to eachother – a missed opportunity!)
