Adventures in Blogging

I'm a little slow at getting this post up but don't take that to mean I didn't have a kick ass time... you'll soon see what caused the delay...

Seeing the Straight White Guy and the Straight White Wife again was a sweet pleasure that gets better every time. Their home was just beautiful, the deck that almost killed Eric was home to many a sorted conversation, and the patio that caused him to (gasp) glisten was the perfect place to enjoy the crisp fall air.

All the other bloggers I met were a new and, um, interesting experience

Army Wife Toddler Mom was already in town when my flight landed. I could tell right off that this chicky was going to be good times. She's the funniest lady ever! But I think she might have sat in something ... did I hear someone say she had puddin on her ass? Oh, and those adjoining rooms we had were mighty nice too ;o) She might just be my newest bestest friend and of course my favorite partner in crime (mostly because she snorts...hehehe)

I almost needed a new pair of panties when I met Mr. Rockstar, the Blackfive, in the flesh. I'd been reading him long before any other blogger so it was a real treat to finally be in the same room swapping stories. Though ... I was a little surprised to see the paratrooper of love putting on women's shoes...

Jim and Denny treated us to some guitar and singing the likes of which I have never seen. By the way, don't ever listen to a man with his own guitar when he says he can't sing ... and who knew a kazoo could be so entertaining?

That One Guy is the only guy I know who can be cool while there is blood pouring from his nose. The stories he could tell over a beer, I'm sure ... he's the only dude that can make me actually want to visit the midwest, just so I can keep listening to his stories.

Tammi was not only a terrific chick to hang with, she's a good cook too! You can't argue with a woman that wants to cook for this crowd, does it with a smile, and jumps right in to the festivities when she's through. Oh, and watching her run through the parking lot to hug AWTM one last time was just awesome.

What can I say about Zonker? He's simply the coolest tatted up, backwoods, mullet head I've ever met. And so popular with the ladies, this one is... We just can't get enough of his brand of humor.

Meeting RSM was so interesting but he's such a sneaky little fucker. I hung out with him all day on Saturday before I knew that I was talking to my very own blog brother. He's one of those quiet ones but he's hiding some great stories in there.

Boudicca & Morrigan were the cutest little fireballs to hang out with. And I've never seen a hotter woman with an AR-15 either. I just wish I had more time to talk with them. Next time, girlies?

Johnny-Oh ... he was such a sweetie to drive me to the airport on Sunday. This man had me laughing all weekend long and could deal with my yammering on end. Now THAT is a good conversationalist...

It was so awesome that Sissy came so far to hang out with us! I can't wait to hang with her somewhere closer to her turf sometime later this year. We ladies have some more military stories we simply must share.

Redneck was not just one damn funny guy, he was one of the most chivalrous men of the weekend, especially when I was cold... which was almost all of the time it seemed there for a while. Jokes and jackets, what more could a girl ask for?

Key (accompanied by her non-believer husband) stopped by for a spell and played pretty photographer all over the place. Hopefully she didn't catch us in too many of those compromising situations we bloggers like to find ourselves in.

Harvey was a total trip - ladies, did you know that there is a device that allows you to pee standing up without taking off your jeans? Well there is. Harv showed me... online of course...

TNT was one smart cookie that could snap you like a twig... good thing she's such a nice lady! A good patio partner too ... Ms. Bee Squisher, she is...

It was neat to meet John and Beth from the same town where my grandma lives. Funny how it’s just a small, small world sometimes. Unfortunately, I didn't get to talk with them much.

Brad and Jason, two members of the Eagle Glen Social Club, were also there to party with us on Friday and Saturday. Brad was just too damn funny for his own good. Thanks to Jason for letting us shoot at and/or kill balloons (depending on who was shooting) out on his property. It was a very cool experience to have the trucks backed up, tailgates down, music playing, and bullets flying on a warm fall day.

Last weekend was a much-needed escape and I am so glad that I was able to meet all of the awesome people that were there. It was a weekend of adventures in blogging ... a pilgrimage to all that keeps me blogging ... an all around good time!

Cool and bloody... just what all the ladies are lookin' for! :)

Again, it was a real pleasure meeting and hanging out with you!

I have tears in my eyes right now.....I cannot believe you put that up......

I forgot about the shoes thing...OH MY.

.. nice sidebar pic... hmmm.... tell us more about those ladies shoes....

Posted by: Eric at November 1, 2005 09:36 PM

It was kewl meeting you all - and as for not talking to people... well, you can only do so much in the time allowed, eh? We'll just have to come to more of these, and get around to everybody. We couldn't keep up, either!

It's tough finding shoes when you're a rockstar. The next time I'm in DC you can try mine on...during the library...

Love the sidebar pic...

What's sneaky about me? I'm just shy ;)

And after seeing a pic of Blog-sis Christina, I can now say that I have the HOTTEST family tree (on the female side) on the Internet.

"Gorgeous" doesn't even begin to describe a woman with such intelligence, style, humor and smiles as you.

Classy. You are sassy classy. It is a pleasure to know you.

You've definitely gotta attend the next wouldn't be the same without you! Thanks for being so much fun and so nice all weekend! You really made the weekend that much better!

Taking lessons from some of the great ones, next blogmeet, I'll be wearing my BLACKFIVE tee shirt, women's shoes, eyelash extenders, a mullet, tats, and a bloody nose. Oh, and I'll be showing up in a bigass truwk with lots of ammo.

It was great meeting you.

Posted by: Jim - PRS at November 2, 2005 01:07 AM

Yeah! I got fireball! I've been getting cute and adorable and an occasional 'you're so cute, I could take you home in my pocket!' heh heh heh!

It was a pleasure meeting you. You're on my third installment tonight.

RSM - As Bou's blogdad, I'll have to take offense at that comment :-P

Although Cat DOES make a hell of a librarian.

OO! Shush me, baby! ;-)

Posted by: Harvey at November 2, 2005 08:16 PM

Hell, I for one, enjoyed your smile all weekend. I also enjoyed your demeanor. Class, Style, Smarts.

Jokes and Jackets... Hey whatever works. It was my pleasure to help you warm up some. That Tennessee shade can be a bit chilly at times.

Tailgates... They're hellacool. Everybody ought to have one.

Can you find Texas in April? ;)

Posted by: RedNeck at November 2, 2005 11:03 PM

You know the worst part?! WAITING for those pics to get developed. To be digital...maybe eventually. ;)

Glad to have met you; and next time, I'll party longer. Promise!

It was such a treat getting to meet you.

And for me...the cooking is just my way of saying "Hi". ;-)
