We had a great time this weekend

We're currently in the RCC at DCA with dmfriedman, Iluvtofly, FlyinHawaian waiting for our flights.

Punki says that she'll post our photos after we get home. It was great to see all. Unfortunately, we didn't make it up for the brunch this morning.

See you later,

Soooo....my most sincere apologies to the Sunday Brunchers. Steph asked me to be there to coordinate at 10 Sunday morning but quite frankly the pub 'crawl'/Dubliner left me rather helpless and pathetic Sunday morning. I TRIED to rally, I really did. But alas the spirit was willing but the flesh was weak.

I apologize for any confusion/lack of coordination that took place that morning.

Koko:

No worries, we took turns doing weird and perverse things to your jacket in your absence. Hope you know a good dry cleaner...

To those who made it - it was very nice to meet so many new FTers as well as catch up with others. It was a very nice morning with great food and conversation. Thanks to cova for taking the lead on straightening things out on site.

p.s. PM chtiet if you want your jacket back.

I can attest to the fact that Kokonutz really tried. I received a very pathetic sounding voice mail from him which was sent Sunday morning.. Fortunately we had the good sense to turn off our phones when we decided to go back to bed after breakfast on Sunday, so we didn't actually get the message until we finally decided to get up for good on Sunday afternoon.

Thanks to everyone who worked to put the weekend together. We had lots of fun. Hopefully I will have some time to post some pictures this evening.

I had a really great time! Thanks to everyone. Yes, everyone, even those who behaved oddly/badly -- always good to have someone to gossip about!!!

I second that motion. At Whitlow's, we all voted unanimously that kokonutz will pick up the tab for all drinks at the next FT Post-Freddies Weekend to make amends. Thanks in advance, koknutz. You deserve it!

Yes -- it was definitely a fair and impartial vote

If you'd seen me Sunday morning you'd know I've been punished already. Something about throwing that dirty girlscout in the mix with many, many pints...well...there is something MORE to gossip about!

I'm always pleased to buy rounds! Next FT pub crawl, I swear! ^





Ok, in my defense, its not the kind of dirty girl scout you think....

Glad to see some folks I already knew and to meet some new ones. Thanks especially to TrojanHorse for being such a good sport.

Looks like I made a good decision to leave early Saturday evening if dirty girlscouts were being passed around. LOL.

In all fairness, I wasn't referring ONLY to kokonutz, who is of course always one of the "usual suspects" when it comes to party-animal behavior.

There are several others whose antics will be gossip fodder for years to come!

It's not behaving oddly if it is the way I normally behave.

After meeting you countless times, though, it was the first time I'd ever seen you do THAT!
