[color=#000000ost_uid0]I dyed my hair a couple of weeks ago too, but my mom is the only one who notices the difference. Including me.[/colorost_uid0]

[color=#000000ost_uid0]This thread got 20 replies in under 24 hours... that's impressive even for us.

For the record, I haven't met anyone involved with 5MV in person, with the obvious exceptions -- Thinkey at TorontoTrek, Kira on various occasions, and Owen through high school.[/colorost_uid0]

[color=#000000ost_uid0]I think it would be cool if we could all meet at one big weird meeting. now that would be weird. unfortionetly we would all need a bunch of money to get there. :\

Oh and i guess i should mention that i havent met anyone either, though sax and i were in the same state at one point, we were opposite ends.[/colorost_uid0]

[color=#000000ost_uid0]I don't know how good an idea that would be, even were it feasible. Friendships that work perfectly online can be awkward in person for any number of reasons. Trying dozens of those transitions all at once might work out fine, but it could also be a disaster.

Oh yeah, Nan mentioned pictures. I'd have to ask Kira before showing any of ours, but I'm in a couple of the TT15 JetCFest photos here. Keep in mind this was two years ago -- I look pretty different now (and these aren't great photos anyway).[/colorost_uid0]

Hypothetically, make sure it's not just one day.

Great shirt Zeke! [/colorost_uid0]

[color=#000000ost_uid0]I knew that something like that probably wouldn't work, but the thought of us all in one room if we all act like we do here (which of course we wouldn't) is funny.

as far as zeke not looking like what Derek expected him to look like, whenever i see pictures of people that i know through the internet, they never look like i expect them too.[/colorost_uid0]

[color=#000000ost_uid0]I know I always expected Zeke to be a tall, statuesque blonde.

Or a [iost_uid0]reeeeally[/iost_uid0] small guy in a body cast.

Maybe that was froot. and BQ's influence.

Seconded. Or thirded, or whatever count we're up to.

I posted a crummy picture of myself in one of those picture threads over in Misc at the TrekBBS (only reg'ed members can see that forum, for those of you unregistered there who're foolhardy or bored enough to go look). Plus I still have a picture in my profile here . I don't have any pictures of myself with others from here to post though. Sorry.

Which reminds me--hmm. *puzzle, puzzle* *checks* Nope, Derek and Blueberry's wedding pictures were on the old board. [imgost_uid0]http://3sygma.com/fiveminute/forums/html/non-cgi/emoticons/sad.gif[/imgost_uid0] That would've been handy if they'd been posted here.[/colorost_uid0]

Me too, but I'm not going to tell what I thought he looked like. [/colorost_uid0]

[color=#000000ost_uid0]Yep, Derek has one of our wedding pics in his profile. The rest of the ones I uploaded are at http://mywebpages.comcast.net/mmeblue/wedding.html .

Derek looks just like I expected him to look. But then, I knew him before I came here. I don't think I have any from when we first met, but I'll hunt around and see...

Apart from people I knew before seeing them online, I think there's only been one case where my mental image of someone turned out pretty close to accurate. Most of the time I'm way off. [/colorost_uid0]
