Aight. So I don't have much time to write a review of my Epinions MnG experience, but a few people have threatened to beat me if I don't. And by "few people," I mean my conscience. Because I had a great time, dammit, and I must take time out of my busy schedule to share my gratitude with the lovely Brisbane folks (and my fellow Epinionators!)
So, yeah. I came, I saw, I drank, I sang ... I had quite the day. I got to the meet a bit late, but CHRISTAL (baby in tow, which confused me a bit) greeted me at the top of the stairs. My hopes were dashed as I saw that there was no spiffy nametag waiting for me. This despite the fact that Garrett and I had corresponded a mere 24 hours' beforehand, discussing my impending presence. Harumph. Garrett remedied the situation, sorta, by creating a nametag for me on the spot - complete with stick figure. It was actually pretty suhweet. I have no idea what happened to it. After my 3d Heffeweisen, I seem to have engaged in nametag-swapping. I do vaguely remember lending my nametag to MARYTARA's lovely daughter, and by the end of the evening I had Garrett's nametag tied to my purse. If I had to venture a guess, I'd say that my nametag is probably tucked safely into COLONIALPARA's pillowcase. He lurved me.
I had a great time catching up with DOC and TOM (I don't know why I'm capitalizing peoples' names, but now that I'm in the habit I find it tough to break). Those two are just adorable, and fun to boot! Met up with KNOTHEADUSC and CUCULAIN (ok, I know I spelled it wrong), both of whom I've met before, and we chatted about local restaurants. I wish I got out as much as they do! Perhaps they'd like to adopt me for one of their dinner dates? The other peep I've met before, FUCHE_BU, is a big mean liar and thus deserves nothing more than a passing mention.
DANNEC was so sweet as to stop by and give me a hug! I met KRISTINAFH, lady of legend, and we chatted a bit about law schtuff. JOUBERT and I talked about airline food, if I recall correctly. Someone introduced me to TBTHORN by telling me he writes porn reviews. I could say more about dear TB, but I'll leave that to your imagination. I can't remember exactly when in the day we met, but I also became acquainted with PEARANNOYED and DIZZYBINT, two super fun ladies. Thanks, DIZZ, for giving me your tasteless cigs. Oh, and I finally got to meet SPEEDDEMON(insert numbers here) ... have been enjoying his music reviews for a while, so it was a real treat.
I know I'm totally forgetting people. Oh ... NED1! Oh my God, she's hilarious and so cute! And she's my sister in body modification, so yeah. Oh, and DAVIDKsomething - thanks for complimenting my bohemian belt :) I know I'm still forgetting people. Please forgive me. I've been at work for 15 hours.
Anyway, so the MnG ended, we headed to DOC's apartment ... then headed to Adam's Morgan for dinner at Meze. We convinced Garrett that grape leaves are delicious. I decided that blueberry mojitos are decidedly not delicious. PEARANNOYED begs to differ.
I was already starting to feel hungover by the time we made it to Peyote Cafe, but I was a trooper and, with SPEEDDEMON's help, made an fool of myself singing "The Promise" by When in Rome. The crowd was begging me for an encore, which is when I convinced Garrett to sing "Like a Virgin" with me, just for the sheer irony. He was fabulous - even did the whole "straddling the floor" thing! Just kidding. He would only perform one song, and one song only. And that song is "Step by Step," by his favorite fellas - NKOTB.
Sad, isn't it?
Alright, I've really gotta cut myself off and get back to work. Suffice it to say that I had a wonderful time, despite the fact that the pics of me make it look like I was dead serious the whole time. 5 dollars to anyone who can find a pic of me smiling!
In closing, let me warn you that a certain Epinionator - I choose not to name names, and I certainly won't implicate him in the title of my review, but he may be from the Philly area and may be a beer-guzzling loon - has characterized me as a "beer-stealin' hussie." Dear readers, you know this simply cannot be true. And in response to such irresponsible accusations, I simply ask: Why, G-----, why do you know the contents of mother's milk?
