Mini-Methoblogger Meetup

August 8, 2008

Not that we’re mini-Methobloggers, we aren’t.  The mini describes the meetup, not the dudes.  Anyway I got to spend a great lunch with fellow Methoblogger, tech geek and all-around troublemaker Gavin Richardson.  We ate at the Macaroni Grill in the Opry Mills Mall.

Gavin was slightly distracted because one of his youthies was across the room at the restaurant and I was slightly distracted by everything else (I have AD/HD for real, and shopping malls can be a real source of overstimulation and constant distraction).

(What’s that green schmutz on my forehead?  It’s just bad pixels in the cheezy cameraphone shot, not some sort of alien fluorescent guacamole.)

We talked about blogging, church life, married life, cellphones (he can’t seem to get used to the touch screen on his phone) and all kinds of random stuff.  We hit on theology and looked at Christian books in the Barnes & Noble together.

And it’s true – he does bear a striking physical resemblance to Jack Black.  Facial expressions, sense of humor,  body language – it’s all there.  I also have been compared to Jack Black, especially from his roles in School of Rock and High Fidelity (I too am a rock snob, a guitarist and singer).

It was a great time of fun and fellowship.  I hope to meet up with him again next time I’m in Nashville, or the next time we happen to travel to the same spot.
