So, as Lumpy's shindig was getting cranked up at the Armory yesterday, I flagged him down to let him know I was attempting to liveblog it.
Lumpy: "Oh, is that your blog? Neat."
Me: "I don't know how much attention it'll draw, but I do get a few hundred hits every day. I even got some good linky-love from that pinko liberal Michael Silence the other day."
Lumpy (looking over my shoulder): "Hi, Michael!"
Mr. Silence: "I've been called worse."
Me: "..." [scurry off and try to look busy while blushing furiously]
Talk about your impeccable timing; if my life was a sitcom, the canned laughter would have been played right then.
To his credit, Michael was charming and affable, and didn't hit me or challenge me to a duel or anything. Thanks for that. ;)
