So I met this neat guy at Montana Slim in Tahoe Saturday night...
...and in the course of conversation we find that we are both liberals.
hehe big surprise, the type of music is a Hippie Magnet!

...anyway, as I'm leaving and we say how nice it was to meet & talk and no other information is presented to 'continue' the conversation..( I mean, I am not gonna whip out my business card at the guy!)

so I tell him about DU and how it's my fave & only great liberal hangout online...

and I tell him my postname and tell him to come & 'look' for me if he wants.


then after the beer wears off I realize that was so silly & stupid!
I post here about my personal life in ways I wouldn't because of the internet anonimity thing

OMG I blew my cover!
has anyone ever done this before? Please tell me it prolly doesn't matter because the guy won't even remember me anyway...lol

3. Pretty toasted i think...
a little slur to the words here & there ;)

I'm sure i am "safe" but I have GOT to find a better way of leaving folks with a connection.

I think I may make up something similar to my business cards to carry when partying, and just use my obscure Gmail address as a contact... that way I can screen after the fact too

5. Was this show at Divided Sky?
I love that place.

And I have personal cards that I give out at shows. Facebook and website info and stuff about me (likes, hobbies,etc) including a space for writing where we met etc.... Just make em on word and get some biz card paper...

10. I love Tahoe.....
Mostly North Shore (crystal Bay) but I love Divided sky. Phish phans own it and they put on some cool shows. Seen Blue turtle there a few times. We made sure to stop on out way to Festival 8 at DS..

The tahoe crowd is pretty tight knit too and that makes it fun...

9. Isn't that enough?
Okay, I'm overweight and rarely do my laundry. I like grating electronic music and always turn up the bass.

What's not to love? :hi:

18. Rock ON...
That's freaking beautiful!

You know I told myself when I came up here to live that the day I am driving to work and the views no longer take my breath away, is the day I leave...

hasn't happened yet!

I may hate the snow sometimes and gripe for most of the cold winter, but the summer makes up for it is the awesomest ways...!!!
Love hiking out my back door and taking my kids for walks all seasons of the year and teaching them ecology and how to look for frogs, and why the bear hibernates and all the coolness of living in the wild...

too bad the economy sux right now, because it really IS a slice O' Heaven ;)


thanks for sharing that pic! did you take it?

27. Awesome shots!
I really like the B/w shots too, Tahoe is striking enough to really "show up" well with no color.

You look strangely familiar, but then again, all us Tahoe Hippies begin to meld after a while up here... must be the altitude :rofl:

26. Did you post it on their wall or email a link?
that's freaking hilarious! You will have to let me know if they say anything back ! I friended them on FB too, coolness.

We shall have to say "Hi" when the next concert comes to town, or if you hear of any good music around the lake you'll have to let me know :)

28. hi firstlight
hope you find the guy (and you will if you are supposed to but im sure you already know that)

so you mention you are in tahoe and were happy to meet a fellow liberal
may i ask if that is uncommon there in tahoe?

it sounds like a beautiful place so i imagine the people are equally beautiful
