As i mentioned in another thread, i've been "out of the mc loop" for awhile so i apologize for sitting on this and not announcing until now...but i figured someone else would have picked up on it and spread the word...but just in case (or as a reminder)... SInce MuppetFest was such a blast getting to meet everyone, i thought it would be great if people had some opportunites to have smaller gettogethers with some local Muppet fans. Meetup.com is a site that came about this last year where people who have the same interests can connect. One thing about the internet is that it's great in bringing together people worldwide who share common interests but sometimes finding local people to interact with can be a bit frustrating because you're talking with everyone on a global scale! There had already been a meetup created for Farscape fans so i thought "why not one for Muppets?" So i created one for fans of Muppets/JHC - http://muppet.meetup.com - it may take awhile for enough people in a given area to sign up to make a worthwhile meeting (right now the peopole who've discovered it are a bit scattered and i don't think there's more than two people in a given region) but hopefully now that i'm TELLING people about it, it will take off - it would be nice if some communities can start having meeting by December - the MF anniversary! ...of course Phoenix AZ fans are especially encouraged...i often feel like i'm a bit alone out here in the desert! I mean it's great in that there's more pizza for me but still, the conversations get kinda one-sided.
