I don’t know if you heard, but Lain and I write a blog. Some people even like it.
And lucky for us, some of the people who like it started a new website called Regator, which basically collects awesomeness from the whole wide internet and then says, “Hey! Read this why dontcha!”*

That’s Lain and me with Regator’s mascot, Reg (note: Lain and I both minored in posing). Regator hosted a launch party at Paste Magazine offices in Decatur and invited bloggers who they like. That’s my understanding, anyhow.
In truth, all I know is they sent the invite to Lain for the both of us, but then only my nametag was printed. Success!
The night was full of awkward introductions (example: “I read your blog all the time and just think you’re the coolest… err, I mean, nice to meet you!) and open bar advantage-taking, so everything pretty much evened out.
Awkward adoration aside, it really was neat to meet the faces behind the words. The Asian Cajuns were delightful as always, About Town‘s Elizabeth is a real live nice person, and the ladies from Dad’s Garage and Out of Hand theater were a treat. Though you might know them from their “work” at “Google.”
Thanks to the Regator team for hosting this delightful soiree, and hi to everyone we met! Sorry I don’t remember your names! Free drinks!
* Lain adds, “Regator is like Google Reader meets Digg, and their baby is adorable, quick, and easy to use. If you’re into that sort of thing.”
