The (greatly anticipated) party wrap-up!

It was good.  It was bad.  At times, it was even ugly.  Enough about the daily posts on my LiveJournal friends list, though... let's read about the party!  *grin*  For those of you who missed it, I threw my first LiveJournal party last weekend.  The date: Saturday, March 29th.  The time: 4:00pm, though only like two people were there on time besides me.  The place: Sony's Metreon, on the balcony outside the very top floor.  The occasion: Do LiveJournal users really need a reason to party?  Anyhow... it was good.  We met up atop the building, some of us chatting for as long as an hour while we assembled a large group... then headed down a floor to the Dance Dance Revolution: 5th Mix machine for a mini-tournament.  The goal was simple... score as many points as you can on the Euro Mix of Smile.dk's Boys on Maniac, with Flat mode on.  Reg's ProfileReg (RegMo) came in first, and won himself six months of paid account time which he generously asked me to give to Ayori's ProfileAyori (DDRgirl).  In return for his kindness, I decided to give him a six month paid account as well.  Aaron came in second... winning two LiveJournal invite codes to use as he wishes.  I didn't offer any third prize, but Justin's ProfileJustin (Squigger, a.k.a. Kudo) would have received it if I had... which is no surprise, as Justin and I used to play that song together on 4th Mix Plus all the time.  *evil grin*

Despite anything that could go wrong, I'll be doing this again for sure... as often as I'm able, with the goal of once every four or five weeks.  Any feedback is welcome and appreciated, as long as its purpose isn't primarily to bash me or others.  Post all you like on this one... I'd love to hear what you have to say, and I expect criticism.  I hope to see many more of you locals the next time around... and I hope you'll leave me a phone number (which I'll write down on a list of people to call and invite) if you're interested in showing up for the next one.  I'll be throwing it in the same place, at the same time... most likely on April 26th or May 3rd.  Both of those dates are Saturday... and we'll again meet up at 4:00pm on the balcony of the Metreon's top floor, if that's the venue you guys choose.  Voting will open soon.  Oh, and a note to all of the people on my friends list who are reading this... thank you for your encouragement, attendance, and all the support you've given me regarding all of this.  I've read many posts on my friends list that described how much fun you had, and it means so much to me that you appreciate the efforts that brought many of us together this past weekend.  Even if you're just reading this and didn't attend the gathering (or even comment on the post for it), I thank you for being my friend and supporting me.
