There was to be a great deal of 'meeting for the first time' this night. It's a very complex web of various degrees of friendship ranging from twitter-chats of only a few months through to 10+ year friendships (and of course Cousin Trude and I have been besties for 36years). An eclectic group with one thing in common - finding great amusement in each other online. Please welcome to Man Pit... @TheKylieApp, @sleemol, @Paullamond and @en_gy (artist formerly known as @neilsgardiner).
I should pre-empt this pictorial display by saying at one point there was over 5 litres of vodka in my freezer, as well as oven Puff Dogs. Cousin Trudy and I compromised on the catering, she choose the beautiful cheeses and I went with Puff Dogs and mini Spring Rolls. Never in my life have I hosted with so much food.

|First to arrive, @en_gy tests the Man Chair, made him smarter.|

And the dramatic arrival of @TheKylieApp! It had been about 6 years since we'd seen each other and as @TheKylieApp said "I think this is the first time we've met not on on Oxford St!"...
For the whole night there was just funny story after funny story, so many stories I forget most. And we could even tell stories longer than 140 characters. Had so much fun we hardly even Tweeted! Except for @en_gy who we discovered was secretly tweeting under the table like he wouldn't catch him. I just love that I know these guys and can call them friends both in life and online. It's pretty darn cool.
Twitter brings people together.... FACT!
