Da Tweet-Up

Well, some folks from the Titterverse broke the cardinal rule of internet socializing and actually met face-to-face yesterday in the real world, or “meat space” as some call it. Nola, Ryan (WarriorEngineer), Ed, (the YatPundit), Charlotte and myself managed a get-together at CC’s on Magazine near Jefferson.

Baby Sun was also along and she seemed to be utterly fascinated by the traffic passing by our sidewalk table. Conversation was light; there was some talk about etiquette on twitter and a re-cap of a twit fight that occurred earlier in the day.

The highlight of the day was a young tattooed blond-headed girl who decided to panhandle our table. She said they gave her coffee, but she really needed some money for food.

It ends up Ryan had brought along some of the shrimp remoulade he wrote about for everyone to taste. Rather than give her money, he gave her the last of the shrimp, which by the way, were mighty tasty. The girl may have been disappointed that she didn’t snag any cash, but she did eat the shrimp right away and pronounced them “really good.”

Is there a lesson in this for us all?
