In Real Life

Posted in: Miscellaneous

For those of you who will be attending CPW, Matt and I are in the process of putting together a "Meet The Bloggers" party. Here's the description I just submitted to the events crew:

You've spent the last 6 months getting to know the admissions "bloggers" online. Come meet Matt, Ben, Daniel, Mitra, Allison, and Kevin in real life! There will be food (of course). Parents welcome. Computers not allowed! ;-)

The details: Saturday, 4/9, @ 8:15PM (between the a cappella show and the parties). It'll probably be in the Mezz lounge; hopefully I'll find out the definitive location sometime today.

Mark your calendars now!

I will really miss the Party. I have been reading these blogs since last October or November. But unfortunately I was wait-listed and will not be able to attend CPW. (tears). I am just joking! I am very happy for every one of you.

Countdown to cpw:

HAHA! I'll try and pencil it into my busy schedule...

Just Kidding! I'll be there, unless I get lost along the way... that is if the small forest animals eat the trail of bread crumbs I leave.

AND SAD... Mike, I think Sexy Nerd Bot needs a day off (or three) don't you think? After all, I'm sure she's sick of playing "Spin the Bottle" with you!

I am with you Saad; even though I am in the US, I have a different story. But Ben, please post pictures of the "Meet the Bloggers" party and other events.

Posted by: Niraj on March 29, 2005

Ben, why do you always delete the music lyrics? I enjoy them

Posted by: Jonathan on March 29, 2005

Did MIT give the approval for some Upper Hand fun???
Nevertheless, I'll be there of course!

Posted by: Akash on March 29, 2005

Mike - that's awesome!!

Saad and Niraj - there will be a ton of pics, I promise!

Jonathan - because the poster isn't adding any context to give the lyrics relevancy... not to mention the copyright infringement issues wink

Akash - I have failed you. :-( We just couldn't find a space, and the battle of the bands that's happening over CPW is taking the glory. I'm totally sorry man. Maybe we can hook it up in the fall?

All - thanks for responding and I can't wait to meet you!

Posted by: Ben on March 30, 2005

Heh. A good plan to organize this, Ben-o. Otherwise you end up with prefrosh randomly coming up to you during CPW saying, "I read your blog!" Though there's a certain awesomeness to that as well... wink But, man, I can't help but feel like I'm totally missing [email protected]#$

Posted by: shazam on March 30, 2005

Ohhh it's quite ok. Battle of the Bands?!?!? Who's playing??? What's the lineup!

Posted by: Akash on March 30, 2005

Sorry Ben but I can't come to CPW. Geography sucks, doesn't it? raspberry

BTW make sure to post loads and loads of pictures!
