Tuckergurl's the first blogger who blogrolled me when I started this site. A film she's consulting producer on, Election Day, is a Premier Pick at SXSW film festival in Austin this year, so she's down here from NYC for a few days for the festival. Haven't seen the film yet, but we're going to the screening Tuesday night. It's a documentary that follows voters from around the country on election day 2004. Should be interesting. Anyway, we met up last night at Ruta Maya Coffee House for the film party. Although we only know each other through typepad it felt like we were old friends meeting after a long time away. We both met each other with smiles and enthusiastic hellos and familiar hugs. I was relieved that she was as excited to meet me as I was to meet her and that she's as awesome in person as she seems online. Fun times.
And shout-out to L.Britt. Tuckergurl told me you'd be excited that she and I met.
Random Note: I found this site in search of free wireless Internet spots in Austin. I usually don't use free wireless Internet, but I had my laptop with me today 'cause I wanted to get this post up @ lunch and the storm knocked our service out last night and I didn't want to do it at work. Anyway, it's a cool site. Hope somebody finds it useful: Free Wireless USA.
