The art of mingling

HAH! You didn’t *really* think you were going learn that from me, did you?

Yours truly HAS been living as a hermit and firmly planted under a rock for the last 4 years you know! In fact, I highly recommend that to learn the fine art of working a room, you watch me at any event or gathering and do the exact opposite 😀

Last night’s Cape Town 27 Dinner at The Wild Fig was brilliant though. I’m SO glad I went (thank you Mom and JOC for being on Kid Duty so that I could attend. And for doing the dishes!!) Wow – so many brilliant and interesting people there … about a 100 I think. I so wish I could have connected up with a whole lot more folk, but I’ve yet to kick the old shyness habit hehehe …

Anyway, despite my MONSTROUS headache, shattered nerves and slight apprehension about going back to “our restaurant”, I still managed to have a good time and it was very cool to put faces to a lot of the names I’ve become familiar with over the last couple of months. What a brilliant bunch of inspiring people! I’m definitely signing up for the next one and I’m going to make a determined effort to shove my introvert self out of my comfort zone and mingle a bit more. Gulp.

Big thank you to Dave Duarte and Max Kaizen for organizing 🙂

[ I *tried* to stay out of Brandon Golding and his big ass camera’s way, but I think he still managed to “get me”. Urgh. ]

P.S. Thanks to those of you who “came out” to me with regard to lurking here. Luvvit! You know who you are 😀

And on a different note:

HAPPY BIRTHDAY to FeistyFemale!!! A quarter of a century young today 🙂

Have a rocking day and we’ll see you later for big birthday celebrations Bev xxx
