Yes, 12-9 or 1209 is my birthday. Just coincidence that it came up today.

Could be coincidence. Or you could be the Illuminati.

Another funny occasion while staying at the hotel at JFK airport, my last night there, I sat next to 2 Brits that work for a company the constructs these huge stairways to work on large aircraft. They also have one that reaches up to the power turbines. After  a few drinks I mentioned that I have been to Gosport, they both had a puzzled look like why would you go there. Funnier though was the one guy lives in Woking.

Did they look at you even more puzzled after you explained to them that you went to Gosport to meet a bunch of dudes you met on an internet forum where we talk about jeans?   :D

Denim meet ups sound and look fun in theory but I often wonder how many sit quietly and don’t say anything? I’m an introvert and tend to keep to myself in social settings, so I’d probably be a pariah.

The one denim meet up I went to was tons of fun,but it was at a Beer Garden of sorts and there was alcohol involved. The wives/girlfriends etc. had a lot of fun observing us.

Yes they did. Even more puzzled when I mentioned I was there 2 nights.

As an awkward introvert myself, I've found IH meet ups to be surprisingly easy.  Although, as stated above, the socialization is easier with alcohol.

Going back to hobbies for a minute. I think they are important as they are a distraction from the hum drum of life. For me most hobbies involve kit. Take cycling or mountain biking, buying parts, upgrading, new cycling clothes, and then there’s the selling bit as well. Meeting guys in Petrol Stations, doing deals and talking sh!te. Forums.. the internet is to blame for lots of these things BTW. And clothes are the same. The internet and magazines are the ruin of man. They just make you want things. I’ve gotten to the point that I’d say my hobbies are collecting hobbies, and spending money on hobbies.. But I wouldn’t be without them!
