Another fabulous time…I think this was my fifth. Big thanks to the organizing committee (Toni, Dan, Jess, Jason) and to all who helped!
Except, once again, I didn’t get to spend enough time with some of the people I wanted to see, and there were too many who could not make it at all. Someday we’ll find a way to alter spacetime so a 4 hour party can include 10 hours of socializing, with wormholes to get people here immediately and for free.
That said, I’m gathering from what I see today that there was some undercurrent of butthurt & drama. I wish we had a cure for that. And I hope I didn’t inadvertently cause any. (Update: what I see is mild, and I may be reading more into things than I should. Nevermind.)
I’ll take credit for the weather.
I’ve never been a hashtag before. I’m flattered. And frightened. Hold me?
Now playing: The Surreal McCoys’ The Bottle & The Gun, which warriormcpoet was kind enough to send via mrsbadcrumble to the last tweetup, and which I drunkenly left in the bar, and which Dan & Toni graciously hung onto and delivered. Great stuff, Shawn, and thanks again. Does the pedalboard in the booklet belong to one of your guitarists? God damn, them’s some pretty toys.
One of these days, I gotta do an out of town tweetup, get the full immersion experience.
Sunday morning, I had to get up at 6:30 with the kids. Went back to bed later for a couple of hours and woke up with a stye the size of a grapefruit. Either that, or a spider laid eggs in my face and the little babies will explode out of it sometime soon.
Bright side: that should inspire some good rants.
Speaking of: what’s the deal with putting a $5 jack in a $35K car? DO YOU THINK I’LL BUY ANOTHER ONE AFTER LEAVING AN OUNCE OF MY KNUCKLES ON THE 7-11 PARKING LOT AFTER YOUR SHITTY TIRE BLEW UP, ACURA? IS THAT HOW WE’RE PLAYING THIS?
I kind of miss the chipmunks I transported to the forest preserve. They were cute and I liked having them around. But goddammit, these tomatoes are delicious.
I can’t find the hotdog name tag, and the other two I went to were pre-nametag, but I have a nice collection building here.
