We sat around Brian's pool and chatted with each other using laptops and wireless ISPs and we all wore masks to protect our true identities. :P

Actually, the initial introduction is kinda odd. You say, "Hi, I'm Andy" and the other person really doesn't make a connection until you say "I'm QTOFFER online". The other funny thing is that you feel as if you've known the other person for months even though you just met face-to-face.

Upon first meeting everyone it was an odd mixture of comfortness and awkwardness...only cause you know them, but not really their faces or their movements, facial expressons, etc.

It was odd--I was the last to arrive and I walked in and Brian asked if I knew who everyone was. Totally unfair since Allivymar was out of the room and her husband was there. I knew everyone's names from e-mailing and I could have made a better effort guessing due to other pics on this site, but I didn't risk it. I should have. Admittedly I would have switched QTOFFER with Allivymar's husband (don't ask ) When the number of people did not match up with how many people I knew should be there I decided not to play "name that AA member"

LOL, Meghan. I did that to Lori when she and Daniel arrived. She looked scared and scanned the group of 5 or 6 of us (some of whom are not AA members)

Pregnant silence...

So I said: "Ok; I'm Jon" etc.

Gee, I was just trying to break the ice for Lori and Meghan. Jon, Alli, Andy and I all know each other from the GCAS.

In any event, no one bit each other or even snarled. *LOL*

That's interesting that you say that, Punkymom, since I try to remember to use my real name (Liz) when using PM's and the like, but it is hard to remember. I remember BrianNY chiding me for this once (Hey, do you have a real name, or what?)

I figure when the day comes that I meet some of the AA folks I will just get a T-shirt made up with my avatar, and LIZ printed with it to keep it simple, LOL! It is much easier to drift back into alter-ego land....
