|05:33 pm - First impressions !|
Curiosity gets the better of me once more ... here, have a poll !
What age did I appear to be when you first met me ?
Sadly, we've never met
How many years ago was that first meeting ?
Mean: 9.36 Median: 8 Std. Dev 6.63
Tell me more about your first impression of me ? (online or real world)
Current Mood: curious
It was at Redemption '05, my first con, so I spent the weekend feeling fairly dumbfounded. But my memory is that we met as part of a group talking in the bar one night near the fireplace. I enjoyed meeting you, if only relatively briefly that time. What's sad is that we generally seem to have continued to meet only briefly ever since! :-)
and I might be stopping by Glitterville (errr, if it is where I think it is!) to visit finella_c
on our way South in late October - are you going to be in town around then ?

Nothing much to say, beyond, I met a lot of people that night, and it's always nice to have an excuse to use my Avon icon.

(a) your poll should allow for people who thought you were 18
(b) consensus suggests I should say 18, not 19, but honestly... I have no idea. I claim 1990.
As do I. But you calculated that as 19 years ago, and I as 18 years ago. Must be daylight savings.

I am content to say that there are 19 distinct years in which I have
known D. :-)
Seriously, I completely suck at date calculations. I particularly have trouble working out how old I am... in primary school I could just add 4 to whatever year level it was and I was fine, but now...
Don't you just love fencepost problems?
I really have no idea how long it's been, but since I seem to have hit a consensus of similarly enlightened individuals, it's probably correct to within 10%. <grin>
OMG, I had to do the maths and it was 12 yrs ago. My how time goes by.
