So, a friend of mine and I just figured out that we have known each other for *11* years in comments in her LJ.

Which leads me to wonder how long I have known the rest of you. I know that some of you go into the way back machine... but, due to my amazingly spotty and dreadful memory for such things, I have no idea *when* we met.

So now I ask you, in this VERY brief poll:

[Poll #816082]

If you want to expound on this, feel free to leave it in a comment. :)

Some of you I *do* know when we met, but mostly those that go back to the super early 90s and late 80s.

Bammbamm (happy birthday mr.) is exempt from this questing as I have known him since 1985. (yes kids, 21 years... our friendship can legally drink)

Edited to add: Also exempt is Johnny Mohawk... whom I met during Channukah of 1986...

We met the day *after* you became my roommate :).

I can't actually remember when we met. Some time in '90? '91? No clue. You were just there one day, and always had been.

that's where I am with you as well. I suspect it was 1990, and I remember that we met at the Underground when we had the same hairstyle. But that was a brief club chat. We did not *really* meet until a few months later.

And it was very much "there one day and always had been" with me for you as well. :)

Well, I'm thinking *at least* January 1991, if not before. But I'm jiggered if I can remember original circumstances! And lord knows how long you've known Shawn?

uh buh.. ummmm

eesh.. I know I knew you in 1991... but I almost wonder if I met you at an Orycon in the 80s.

I met shawn in either Early 1990 or late 1989. That one I am sure of.

Fuck all if I know... :) Probably 2001, altho we probably didn't have much to do with one another til 2004.

I think we first *met* (briefly, and in passing at a beach burn) in 2000. And it was late 2003 when we actually started to become friends, but *really* late. It might have been really early 2004. That whole period of time is one enormous blur of Jessica and the order of protection.

I met you in passing at a con in the mid some time in the mid '80s. I wanna say Rustycon or Dreamcon.

had to be Orycon. Those are the only ones I made it to in the middle bits of the 80s.

I *think* you were first pointed out to me in 02 or 03, but we didn't really talk until 04ish or so (whenever you got into CoX ;) )

you and I met right after you moved up here (your brother introduced us, but it was a whirlwind of you meeting people). But yeah, we did not really *bond* until 04. :D

I know that *I* met you in 1989. My god, I was 15! I think that I can safely say that Ayesadream was also 1989-1990 range. =) Considering her mother used to always blame *me* for her "downfall" even though, she's older!

From: [identity profile] staxxy.livejournal.com
heh. I'm pretty sure that I did not make it over until January of 90, and we met at Rusty that year. Unless you were at Ory with the guys the fall before... Hmmm... that weekend is a blur of Cyberpunk and parties.

At least, to the best of my mental figuring (spotty at best) it was around 1990 or 1989, in there somewhere.
Sins of the Flesh cast, at the Overlake.

First time I ever saw two boys kiss in real life was at an afterparty, sitting next to you. *smile*

I think it was about 95. I had been with Sean for a little over 2 years at that point. And I think it was a NorWes.

that sounds likely.

It might have been at a HoP get together too.

Hm, not sure exactly, but odds are good that it was around '90 -- that's about when I started with the con-going, and I know that that was where I first met you, though I don't recall exact circumstances. For the first while, you were one of many people that the folks I was hanging out with always said hello to in the hallways, and it all kind of blurs together... :)

From: [identity profile] staxxy.livejournal.com
yeah, I think it was Rustycon 6, which was 90. :)

or earlier? crikey, i have trouble remembering those years. did i meet you at Dave F's (In Pace Requiescat) at the same time i met [livejournal.com profile] sirriamnis and [livejournal.com profile] ogremarco?

in addition, i think we crossed paths at the Rosecon, which i also think we've discussed in the past.

Heh. Too funny, YOU I know exactly how this all happened...

I was living with Shanda in Bummertown and would go for walks during the day pretty often ( I was job hunting and had cabin fever). I found your game store and stood and chatted with you about gaming, the punk scene, and a bunch of other things. (it is possible that Sawyer brought me there the first time, but I think I met him through you... you through him, him through you... one or the other). You and I made fast friends and you came over to visit at our apartment a few times, and then you brough Dave over and he and Shanda hit it off and it just kinda went from there. It was 1993, just after I had my heart attack.

I remember Steve Barta bringing me along to a birthday party for someone I'd never met. He was either my roommate at the time, or a friend, which probably means early 1999. Even though we'd never met before, I felt very comfortable and friendly with you. I'm guessing you felt similarly, as I remember using you as a pillow on the couch. &:)

Yay, Capricorns!

I am pretty sure it was before then... When you were dating Heather.

I guess we 'met' on IRC in '92 or '93, when I first became a #hottub regular....I recall our first meatspace meeting, the location anyway, but can't recall if it was when I was visiting Seattle (Xmas of '97 or '98) before I lived there or if it was right after I first moved there (fall of '99).
Perhaps you can pin it down better given the third party who was present. :)

I didn't finish reading your post when I typed my response to your poll. I believe we met in 1985 as well. That's when I met Dan too. I started going to Juan's/Dad's in 1986, if I remember right.

then we probably met then or in 1986, and just did not really get to know each other until a lot later. :)
