      you and others.  I was in NYC for an opera at the Met on Saturday so couldn't make another trek down on Sunday.

      Hopefully the next meetup and I hope mconvente writes a diary about it -- with pics.

        you away!  

        Several people were taking pictures - I do expect a diary (or two).  

        We had a nice crowd, and as lovely a time as I had (at my very first meet-up!), I did miss getting to meet you.

        As you say, maybe next time (I'm waiting to hear about a job in NJ.  If I get it, I'll commute for a few months from PA, then relocate to NJ - making it a little easier for me to participate).

          of good luck re: the job!!!!  A bit of a commute (to put it mildly) but waiting gives you a chance to find a good place to live.

          I'm sorry I missed you as well.  I really like the folks in the tri-quatro state area -- I'm including CT!!!!

          Let us know about the job!

          •  yes, i will know by the end of the week. the (3+ / 0-)

            interview was last Thursday and went exceptionally well (met with 7 people overall, and got very nice replies to my thank you notes from 4 of them, including the CEO).

            I had to do three writing exercises for them.  I had until friday to complete them, sent them today.  they had already scheduled a couple interviews for today and tomorrow, but the CEO practically cut herself off mid-sentence headed toward telling me I practically had the job (she shared that the other candidates didn't have as strong a background, and that they had a weak response overall to their ad). I was there for almost 2 1/2 hrs!

            It is such a perfect fit of my skills and experience.  Just keeping my fingers crossed.

            (the commute is actually barely 50 minutes, I did that for years in upstate NY.  As long as I can avoid snow and ice storms, piece of cake!)

              wouldn't want people reading this to think I am a total idiot and ignored a deadline like that!  LOL
