What will become of Mugsy?

Posted in Nonsense by Bridget on November 8th, 2007

At the November Cleveland Web Standards Association meetup, Brad Colbow shared with approximately 40 attendees how he goes about styling a website using CSS. He was the third presenter since we started having monthly workshops as a group.

Considering that he was preceded by Eric Meyer and Jason Morrison during earlier meetups, Brad really held his own as a presenter. If you are interested in the content of his presentation, you can view the files at his blog, and read Dana’s recap.

Beyond Brad’s Presentation

What I’m writing about is the November meetup tragedy. Eric Wiley and his faithful friend Mugsy were parted for the first time in 8 years.

Mugsy, The Missing

It’s a heart wrenching tale that continues to unfold about a man and his mug.

The first morning without Mugsy, Eric found himself reflecting on all the joy that Mugsy had brought him in their relationship. As Cinderella‘s power ballad so eloquently states, “You don’t know what you’ve got til it’s gone.”

As bad as I feel for Eric’s loss, I find myself far more concerned with Mugsy’s well being. Consider what it must be like to
be an abandoned 8 year old mug. He’s in unfamiliar surroundings. God only knows who has fondled the slightly dented aluminum exterior! I shudder just thinking about it.

I imagine that the poor little drink dispenser might be so distraught over having been left behind in such a callous manner, that he could do something drastic.

Now where, Mugsy?

What WILL become of Mugsy?

    Allo! A little coffee mug passed through here a few days back. Mumbled something about “Tri-C, Ohio and the Cleveland Web Standards Asocciation”. Did a bit of poking around and found your site. Wonderful!

    The mug was heading towards the train tracks last I saw.
