SLC Tweet-Up and Killer Klowns

What do these things have in common? Why they are the way that Jimmy and I spent our evening.

First up, the SLC Tweet-Up, yes, I said Tweet up. Basically a bunch of the Twitterers from the Salt Lake area all met up at a coffee shop. Which was pretty cool and I will definitely go to the next one. One thing that I have learned from blogger conferences is that it is nice to finally to put faces and online personalities together. This was definitely the case here. And it was also very socially outgoing for me....and we all know that I need to make a larger friend base.

Then once we got home, Jimmy and I watched Killer Klowns from Outer Space, which is by far the best clown movie I have ever seen! Jimmy and I tweeted back and forth while we watched it. Unfortunately, I think that Jimmy and I are the only ones who find our back and forth on this funny.

In any case, if you haven't seen Killer Klowns, you need too. It wins bonus points for the following antics: human puppets, balloon-animal bloodhounds, popcorn guns, rainbow mullets, fantastically bad lines ("If you were a clown where would you hide? I don't know, an amusement park?"), shadow puppets that eat people, cotton candy cocoons, and.....

a twisty straw!

It was awesome to have you at the tweetup - thanks so much for making it a success!

I'd watch Killer Klowns but after watching IT, I'm deathly afraid of crazy clowns...eek!

How many people came to the tweet-up? I was sad I couldnt make it :(

Did anyone take any crazy photos?

Jenyx26 (I can't say just Jennifer here because both commenters are),
No crazy photos, just normal ones of people sitting around and talking. Check out church_mouse and ghennipher on Twitter for photo links.

It was too bad that you couldn't make it, I was looking forward to meeting you! but I guess its all right, you did have concert tickets... grumble grumble :)

I took a look at church_mouse and ghennipher's photos. It looked like fun was being had, though not nearly enough craziness!

I was looking forward to meeting you too. Oh well, all in good time I suppose, I hear these twitter-ups happen about once a month.

The concert was amazing! I want to go see bonnie raitt on monday, but probably wont get around to it. Oh well.
