I wasn't really nervous, just excited. When I get excited, I tend to talk a lot. The first person that I met at my first Meet was Wolfy also. I also met Judimouse, who is a delight. Everyone was so very nice.
I came prepared. I always wear my MiceChat hat, t-shirt and a name tag that says Barbaraann. It breaks the ice. I just stick out my hand and introduce myself.
The Wolfpack was nervous....since everyone has to have a "first" meet. Have met some of the best people and friends that will last a lifetime since that "first" meet. Two years now and still enjoy every one of the meets!
My first meet was the 1st birthday meet - and the Diane, Tim and the Wolfette were the first MCers I met as well. The meets are very friendly and a lot of fun. I will make it back to one, one day.
Good morning, son
In twenty years from now
Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
And I can tell you 'bout today
And how I picked you up and everything changed
It was pain
Sunny days and rain
I knew you'd feel the same things...
Oh goodness. I remember my first meet. I was so scared. I had friends there but they were leaving early and weren't sticking around afterwards. I hung out with FrodoPotter during the meet and ended up meeting lots of MC'ers! Fishy even let me be apart of the Congress of Cons pic! (And yea, his hugs are the best!) Now I love meets! I know enough ppl to not be so freaked out. So much fun. Just kinda hang around and you will get a feel for everybody. MiceChatters are the most awesome , fun loving (very much so at the CB) ppl i know. I always look forward to the meets. You will have so much fun! Just contact someone you are comfortable with and you are set!
STACIE and YODA-Dland partners for life
And, I , I close my eyes
And, I kiss that frog
Each time finding
The more boys I meet the more I love my dog
Who'd'ya think you're kiddin'
He's the Earth and heaven to you
