Pretty please?

Should we meet at some point in physical space -- a con, a mutual friend's home, a party , etc. -- would you please let me know who you are by your LJ name?

Some of you I have figured out.  Others of you I suspect I've only met here.  But there is a large group in the middle, and I'd hate to miss out on knowing who you are when it's safe for you to tell me.

Yeah, yeah, yeah.  Half the fun's in figuring it out.  I'm ready for the other half of the fun, now.


(PS to DHD folks:  just let me know who you are by the name you used on DHD, and that's good enough for me!  -- Unless, of course, we should happen to meet.)

Now I'm wondering what DHD is. I do wonder, though, if I am just one of the really unusual people -- there are only one or two people on my whole friends' list whom I don't know by name. (You know I'm Nate, right? I am 99% sure you know and that at some point this has affected our interaction -- but I can't remember the exact details.)

Oh, yes! I know who you are. And, since you are open about using your name in your posts, I have referred to you by name (not to mention your lovely other half.)

I thought about listing everyone who needn't answer, but figured I'd just go this route and see what happens.

"DHD" is short for "Dream Home Diaries," a blog in the on-line NYTimes by a couple building their "dream" house on a small island off the coast of Florida. Several "regulars" showed up in the comments section, which became a kind of forum all on its own. The blog is ended, now, as the owners have moved in, and I know that several of the regulars and lurkers could end up over here for my home construction posts.

Aren't you glad you asked?

Yes, ma'am.

Silly! I already know who you are. I invited you to my home, remember?

Don't forget to send me travel plans when you have them!

Not an LJ person.......I am from DHD...a lurker there, often having to resist the urge to SCREAM. Wonder how that is going for them? What an ugly place!

Well, I keep reminding myself that beauty is in the eye of the beholder. They are happy with it, and that's what counts.

I am very sorry we didn't get to see the shake-down period and a 6-months later report (although, there's still time for the former.) But, with the tone of some of the comments (mostly at the beginning -- most of the really bad commenters left) I can't say I'm surprised. Not to mention that the bloggers themselves seemed to be less than thrilled with the whole process of blogging (which, of course, had a lot to do with those comments...) so I can't blame them for not doing more.

Glad you surfaced here. Welcome! I've got some client work to do this weekend, and then I'll be posting some new construction updates and pictures.

DHDers: "LJ" stands for LiveJournal, this website, in fact. Just in case that message title was a real question. :-)

You know who I am already, right?

Yes. Though, truth to tell, it wasn't your id that told me -- it was the userpic of the top of your head. Now, I have not spent much time (have I spent any at all?) inspecting the top of your head, but something about the hair color made me put your name to your id.

I can be quite s-l-o-o-o-w some times.
