A small world come full-circle

Jenny and I went to the Gaskell’s Halloween Masquerade this evening. We brought chutta along with us, and thanks in part to that mask you see below, we finally met FanBoy and Zhaneel in person.

(I’m changing my profile image – here’s the mask I refer to)

We’ve pretty much been just missing each other for the last year or so. We’d skip a dance they were going to or vice-versa. Anyway, we were all there this evening. I was wearing my mask when Zhan and FanBoy came in the front door. Zhan saw it as she was greeting some other friends, waved to me and tentatively called out “Hooloovoo?”

We introduced ourselves to each other before scurrying off in different directions prior to the dance. A few moments later, chutta said: “You’ve already met him, I think…” (reffering to FanBoy)

It’s true: FanBoy and I were both part of “Barely Legal” a Rocky Horror Piscture Show cast that performs in the SF Bay Area. I didn’t recognize him because the last time I’d seen him he had much longer hair, (which was cut earlier this year) but we chatted about it a bit later in the evening. (When Jenny’s sister tried to introduce us…again. Ha!)

So, to recap:
FanBoy used to work lights for a RHPS cast in the late-ninetys
Hooloovoo joined that cast in the later-ninetys (as the tranny “Rainbow Rob”)
Hooloovoo met his future wife through mutual friends at Rocky
FanBoy left the cast
Hooloovoo and Jenny went on “permanent hiatus”
FanBoy and Zhaneel find this game called Jumpgate and a community site: PJG
Hooloovoo finds this game called Jumpgate and a community site: PJG
Gossip (who ran PJG) starts up G-Blog.net, through which we discover that we all go to Gaskell’s
A year later we finaly meet up, and realize that we had in fact first met several years before.

Funny how things work out, sometimes.

Anyway, Jenny and I had a great time at Gaskell’s. Zhan, I apologize for leading you into a couple of traffic jams during that Gallop. FanBoy, it was good to meet you– again. πŸ™‚ And it’s good to finally be able put faces (and a real names) to the blogs. πŸ™‚ Hope to see you at the next dance.

Methinks it’s time for bed now.
