OgFest A Recap

Well, I have just returned from OgFest, and before I go in for a nap, I am going to try a short and brief recap, cause I am tired.

I arrived in Chicago to find a charming and handsome man awaiting my arrival. He carried my bags, and ferried me to the hotel where he dropped me off curbside. Thank you so much my friend for being so sweet to me and for the fabulous hugs!

We joined some friends I'd met before and some new friends I'd yet to meet.

Shy - Contagion, Beautiful and intelligent Ktreva, He of many beers - T1G and Tammi- Queen of Mattresses were already at the bar getting their drink on. With them were two men new to me: Og and Jon. Charming men both. It was my pleasure to meet them at last.

We were joined later by Bloodspite-The Quiet and then later still by Blogdaddy Harvey and his long suffering but beautiful wife TNT., Redneck, Leslie and Shoe found us late in the evening back at the hotel too.

The party commenced in Tammi's room - this woman who makes her living on mattresses, sure do know how to entertain *wink*. The party lasted till the wee hours of the morn . . . I do believe I finally reached sleep at 4:45 a.m. What happened is a blur, and well, best not repeated!

Saturday found me up after obscenely little sleep and shopping with the ladies who I adore! Tammi joined us for breakfast but then left us so she could lunch on or rather with the menfolk. Ktreva, TNT, Leslie and I hit the outlets . . . hard! After purchasing tantalizing outfits push-up bras and accessories, we headed back to the hotel to primp for T1G's birthday extravaganza. Where we were all joined by the lovely Teresa who I'd wished I'd met sooner! You are a wonderful lady and I hope to meet up with you again. I also finally had the pleasure of meeting Graumagaus who is quite a sweety!

Og was emcee and provided a wholesome and pious background for the telling of T1G's story. My sides, my eyes, and my ears are still burning from the evening.

T1G was visited by his very own Hooter's Girl, was kissed atop his head and presented with a fine Guiness, all whilst losing his appetite for what seemed the third time of the evening. . .

He was presented with gifts and loving stories about how he had touched us. . . the bad touch of course. He was presented with tasty morsels to nibble on and a few women to bite. Alas, it may be that the next time we see him, he will be dressed in pink and leading a Gay Pride Parade in a City near you, the Hooters Girl made quite an impact - I'm just saying . . .

Happy 40th my dear friend, I won't tell anyone about that one time at band camp . . .

Oh, and lest anyone think blogmeets are all fun and games . . . the boys did taunt a drunk outsider who decided to invade the inner sanctum! The Nerve!! Their device of choice was a hungry calf and Redneck as bait . . . . um . . . nevermind . . .

Sleep was elusive for a second night in a row, though I did manage to find my bed at about 4, only to be awoken by an obscene text message at 4:30 from Zonker.

I found the morning had dawned too quickly and I was off to stake out my spot in front of the letter A at the Southwest terminal. I didn't see Redneck on the way out of the hotel this time, so I trust he made it out ontime. Redneck is a great sport and a good friend, even if he won't let me live down overstating the obvious when last we met.

Redneck had the pleasure of having about 1/2 dozen women in his bed last night - that is some stamina! Of course he had about 1/2 dozen men in his room too, so . . .

Nothing like being overly vague in a recap, but you wouldn't believe it even if I told you.

All in all, it was a wonderful weekend with folks I am proud to know. Tammi you planned a great get together! Thank you.

I find that it is always far too long between meeting with these fine people! So, here is to meeting again soon, to good friends, good beer and cheap and tawdry meetups in hotel rooms across the country! May we do it all again very soon!!

It was so great to meet you finally. Zonker leaves obscene text messages? I'm shocked... shocked I tell you. *grin*

I'm having issues with my internet connection (as I always seem to have on the road!)... I may have to wait til I get back to post on the party - or maybe I'll just link to everyone else. heh.

Sounds like a wonderful time was had by all! If we'd thought about it sooner, we should have setup a webcam so we family members who couldn't attend could watch the festivities from the safety, I mean comfort of our homes.

Here's to the next one!

I didn't make it on time. Just in time. 45 minutes late getting out of the bed. The covers smelled better that night for some reason.

I think the foreign, well, he might be American, but he still talked funny, could take the "NASCAR driver" that bummed a smoke from me and then waltzed his way into the room while I was on the phone in a race to the airport, or anywhere else for that matter. 95, was as high as I saw the speedometer read from the hotel to O'Hare.

Now that boy could drive. And he had his own smokes... He turned a 60$ cab fare into a 60$ cab fare and a 20$ tip. That was all I had in my pocket. He was haulin' ass now. Takin' shit from his boss over the radio when I poked my head in his cab like you wouldn't believe.

I didn't get his snail mail addy, but I really wish I would have. He deserves a Christmas card, Quanta card, you know what I mean, whatever his happy holiday is, I'd find a suitable card for him if I knew where to send it.

I don't know how you did it, but you caught the highlights in the perfect round-up. Outstanding!!

It was great to see you again, thanks for ALL your help!!!

Scrotum? did someone say scrotum?

Thanks, Oddy. And I promise not to tell about the biting...

I was very shy, in fact I was so shy you tried to put me through a wall. :)

"you wouldn't believe it even if I told you"

Yeah... that about sums it up :-)
