05:19 pm - Winchester Mystery Meetup
A while ago, I joined Meetup.com to make more Indian friends.

I discovered a monthly comic book club at Mission: Comics and Art.

One of the girls I met there suggested I join a Meetup group called the Antisocialites.

adinarj visited last week, and we were planning on visiting the Winchester Mystery House in San Jose, which I had never visited, so an out-of-town visitor seemed like a good excuse.

The Antisocialites scheduled a visit to the Winchester Mystery House today.

adinarj changed the timing of her visit to the House.

Having already gotten sort of excited to see it with her, I decided to go ahead and see it with the Antisocialites.

That is how I found myself at the Winchester Mystery House gift shop around 11 this morning with a Meetup group of thirteen people who needed two more to get the group rate.

And that, my friends, is when two girls walked in. Two girls I thought were part of the Meetup group. One girl who had a very strange reaction to me.

Because she knew me. She knew that I was spectralbovine.

Because she had known me since she was fourteen. Because she was amarettolime25, from the Veronica Mars Meet Market on TWoP. She and her friend were visiting from Fresno and had decided to see the Winchester Mystery House at the exact time I was seeing it.

I still can't believe this actually happened! It was such a surreal experience. And I got to use the "lack of gorm" line! My life is complete.

You are just as funny and witty in person as you are online. :) Everyone in that meetup group was pretty cool, actually. Wish I could've gone to lunch with you guys. Perhaps we'll see each other again!

Moony! Hey!! I'm doing great. Just finishing up my last year of college, moving to the Bay area next year. How time flies.

Damn, really? Crazy. My sister's finishing up her last year, too. I don't recall what you're studying?

I remember that post! Oh, VM4.

You are just as funny and witty in person as you are online.
Aw, thanks! I was trying extra hard to impress you.

Everyone in that meetup group was pretty cool, actually. Wish I could've gone to lunch with you guys.
It was a pretty cool group, yeah! And we ended up splintering off into our own lunch group on the way back to the East Bay, so you didn't miss much.

Perhaps we'll see each other again!
Totally!

It's a neat little house if you like looking at the houses of eccentrics with too much money. The little oddities are fun. We had a very entertaining tour guide. The Behind the Scenes tour of the estate and basement wasn't as exciting, but for only five dollars more, it's not bad. I wouldn't say it's essential.

Aw, the Winchester Mystery House! Fun place. Not very creepy, but satisfyingly strange.

I love how small the world is. (And how internet-famous you are.) That is a great picture!

That's what you get for being famous on the internet.

Also, whoa when did your hair get so long?
