Classic Boston area Toastie moment:
I am distracted by a conversation on one end of a table. I look up to see the other half of the table staring pointedly at me, with about half of their hands raised. I am confused. Turned out we were doing a poll of how many people at our table went to Smith and between me being me in person, as well as me having introduced myself by my username, the other half of the table knew I was a Smithie.
I am one of the More People who showed up later, I loved meeting all of you that I met, you are all perfect and beautiful and lovely.

"After careful consideration, you have decided not to become a Dark Lord."
"You once fulfilled an ancient prophecy and overturned gender expectations at the same time."
