This past weekend was the Buffista F2F, which by some cosmic twist of fate happened to take place in San Francisco the very year I moved to the Bay Area. Like the Alamo Marsathon, it was a gathering of folk who knew each other from the Internet. I'd been a Buffista since 2004, when I stumbled across the board due to the Wonderfalls cancellation. Although I'd met many Buffistas in other contexts, this was my first chance to participate in the yearly extravaganza.
This post is dedicated to cindywrites, who couldn't be there. You all can read it too, even if you won't know who any of these people are.

I had a wonderful time meeting so many of my favorite online peeps. I didn't get to spend nearly enough time with anyone at all, but that's always the way with these things. Just as well, maybe, because I felt like I was disappointing as a person. I don't think I said a single witty or interesting thing all weekend. Don't believe the hype: I'm way cooler online.
But I look better in a tiara offline.
