I met Carl the Were-Hamster (infinitysquared of LJ) in early November of 2005 while wandering through a sporting goods store. We exchanged e-mail addresses and ended up as LiveJournal friends. He's moving to Ohio soon, and we got together over lunch today for the first time in a year an a half. A good time was had.
We talked about the "flying rehnquist". (Bragging rights to anyone (other than Carl) who can identify the source of that; *I* didn't know...)
