Be ready and smile even when the kossack behind the camera is not!

To catch the diva on film, you must set your camera to action shots.

Here we have Lt. side pocket pointing out how food is a good photo prop.

Oh, who am I kidding? side pocket had just discovered tomatoes in a salsa!

Here GTP shows us how to pretend to know what the fuck is going on like Meteor Blades, even though you are clueless like me.

Excellent GTP! :)

You don't want to appear as an obsessed fan girl.

Wait. What? Glen, how did you get into my diary and edit it? arrg.


"She's a fan girl."


Last tips and encouraging note: Go to the Meet Ups. Meet your fellow kossacks and look into their eyes, see their smiling faces, hear their voices. Embrace them.

For those of you attending the Daily Kos Holiday Bash, The Hotel Shattuck Plaza is the kossacks home away from home while visiting. It is just up the street and absolutely beautiful. The photo above is of the chandelier in the lobby.

Thank you navajo, side pocket, and all SFKossacks for leading your fellow kossacks out of their basements and into the sunlight.

One last special thank you to Glen the Plumber and his beautiful wife remembrance  for their input in this diary. You rock!

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
