Last week scarcrest and adgy called to try to persuade me to come up to Nashville. They sounded like they were in the movie Road Trip as written by Garth Ennis, and therefore I decided I had to come, if for no other reason than to watch mayhem ensue. So I headed up to Nashville (with a hangover) and made frighteningly good time until I got off the interstate and got lost in BFE. Just as it was starting to rain cats and dogs. By the time I got to opalturtle and cotharyus's house I was a little hysterical (like that's anything unusual). But ariedana got lost too, so though I hate for her to get lost at least I wasn't the only one.
Apparently the party had decided that in the absence of laubster I was the easiest target, so I got mocked a lot, to the point of them putting a vodka bottle in front of me just to see what would happen. I hit scarcrest on the head with it. Don't worry, it was just plastic, and anyway he deserved it. Thus opalturtle made me this icon. You'd think they'd know better than to taunt the girl mixing the drinks. It was a welcome relief when we called reannon to pass the phone around and call her Bunky. It was my first time meeting opalturtle and cotharyus and their adorable little boy, and they were so kind to take a crazy strange person like me into their home. Then I started making margaritas and teaching everyone to play Apples to Apples. Hilarity ensued.
When we all finally cleared out, ariedana and I headed back to her place to play with her adorable kitties and worship the TiVo. I want a TiVo!
