Jer, Danielle, and I ventured out to a Tumblr party at Uncharted Books (Logan Square represent) last night. We were sixty percent there for free drinks, forty percent for potentially meeting some cool people. Both of those things happened.
For the first half hour or so that we were there, we tried to talk to a number of people who did not want to talk to us. It went sort of like this:
Monster: Hey I like your shirt!
Person: Oh thanks!
Monster: I’m Lisa
Person: I’m person.
Jeremy: I…AM JEREMY
Danielle: Hi, I’m Danielle!
Person: Well, it was nice meeting you!
This happened many times. We think those people were probably just intimidated by how cool we were, also that no one was drunk enough at that point.
As the night went on, though, we did meet some really cool people, I’m following a few more local Tumblrs, and I’ll definitely be making a trip back to Uncharted Books!
