I love credits.

One of the tags on their post is “shameless self promotion.” Yeah, I know all about that. LOL!

“Grist D.C. reader party: Thanks for the memories | Gristmill: The environmental news blog | Grist

It’s been over a week ago now, but memories of Grist’s D.C. reader party linger on like the stain on my boss Chip’s shirt from where I knocked his “causemo” all over him at the very beginning of the night, in front of several members of our board of directors. (See: How to Get Ahead at Work, p. 245)

The grace and good humor with which he, um, failed to fire me on the spot were characteristic of the evening: lots of very smart, very charming people. Drinking. Whereas stereotype has it that everyone in D.C. is an unattractive, pale wonk that talks about nothing else but arcane policy and political gossip, I found it to be the case that several of the attendees were too attractive! You can see tons of pictures of the event on Flickr.

We took over all three floors of The Reef, and filled it to capacity. Over 300 people came and went over the course of the night. We ate delicious organic food, drank delicious organic drinks, and enjoyed delicious organic badinage. These are my people! I wish it could have lasted longer.

Huge, huge thanks go out to the valiant volunteers who manned the door: Joelle, Gabe, Alana, Samantha, Vickie, and Alix. Thanks also to our twommm ... polenta volunteer photographers: Peter Kelley and Deb Duncan. As always, big shout-outs to our sponsors: Clif Bar, Flexcar, Square One vodka, Wolaver’s Ales, and Badger Mountain Vineyard.

Most of all thanks to everyone who came. It’s always a huge shot in the arm for us to be able to meet the people on the other end of all these pixels. See you next time!”

  2. See? This is how nice these people are. The photo shoot is over, and they’re still feeding my ego. ;)

    Thanks, David. I enjoyed being there.
