Default HBT'ers in person

There's a thread asking how many HBT'ers you've met. Aside from being jealous of olllllo, I had another idea of something that would be fun. We all have our internet personas, but maybe some of you who have met can give a short impression of a fellow HBT'er that might surprise us.

For example,

Sause: talks a lot in person, but is almost silent on the forums.

ollllllo: easy going guy who is very funny and witty (and is married to an absolutely gorgeous and charming woman)

Pseudochef: doesn't look old enough to drink, but is an intelligent married father of a little girl

I have more, for later, but does anybody else have any short impressions to share, to give us a glimpse into the "real" people?

Oh no, this can't end well for me.



j/k

What I can say is that no one that I've met in person matched what I was expecting. It just goes to show how unrepresentative someone's written word can be.

You're the first person who popped to mind and I haven't even met you.

EdWort - Ed has a story for everything, and they're all very interesting. Sit down and have a beer with Ed and you'll never be bored.

Yooper - Sit down to have a beer with Yoop and you won't get a word in edgewise. She'll make you laugh your arse off though.

RichBrewer - is as very quiet man, but he gets in a few good lines from time to time.

I'll also add some more later.

Bobby, give us some details!

I've been kind of brought down lately by all the negative posts, so I'm looking for some unexpected positive words about some other HBTers. I've genuinely liked everyone I met.

More from me:

Bearcat Brewmeister is very easy to talk to about numerous subjects.

Ohiobrewtus easily smiles and laughs. He's also married to a gorgeous and sweet woman.

It's hard to say. Everybody that I've met has been cool and laid back. Not a person that I wouldn't toss back a few beers with, anytime.

Hippie; he's a hippie
Kaiser; he's crazy when he's druck. Just as meticulous with his brewing as you would expect, and makes some mighty-fine BBQ.
Glibbidy; surprisingly, clean-shaven
Jester; reminds me a lot of my older brother (a good thing)
Red; even cooler in person than she is online
Melana; I wouldn't **** with her, she'll kick your ass

Think I'll have to skip out on you when I'm in Piscataway next month.

Laughing Gnome laughs a lot, and he is a gnome. Sometimes he makes irrelevant posts in threads that he likes just so that he can keep track of them easily.

I've met Bobby_M and Shecky and they're both similar to their personas in the real world (edit - which is good). I also met Dr Vorlauf and Dillbag who are both quiet on here, but good guys in the real world. I think 9 out of 10 people on here are good people...

Is that good or bad?

Just met Soulive and wish I could have spent more time with him, but he was off to surf and I was getting my offspring back to CT. Definitely a man I'd hang with.
