Comments: Chicago, Part II...

LOL - I didn't know an amaretto sour was a drink of taste and culture... I pretty much thought it was a frou-frou drink. *grin* And thank you for to lovely compliment. It was a wonderful evening.

Dammit, I am jealous.

And, being one of lofty goals, I have this goal to one day hug my blogbro Joe. I knew he was big, now I really really want to hug him. ;-) Poor guy...

Damn! I'm jealous too. Would of loved to have been there, done that, and I'm only 2 hours away! Damn!

No good...I'm already jealous!

No blackmail stories?

Bro, I kid you not when I say that this was one of the coolest evenings I've had in years. Truly.

It really was like meeting family... and a brother.

I think my favorite quote of the evening had something to do with you removing Grau's head with a beer glass... and I can almost guarantee that he loved the hell out of that!

It can't be said any better...DAMN I'm jealous!

Posted by PrncessCat on March 31, 2005 11:09 PM

I can say it better:
Goddamn it! I'm so jelous, my brown eyes turned GREEN!
*Pouting*
Glad you had fun, it sounded like a great time.

".. I could go on about all of the wild fun we had... but the rest of you would just get jealous..."

Silly Eric, inflicting jealousy on the non-attendees is one of the BEST parts of doing blogmeets :-)

I spent some time in Illinois last summer with my husband's people...I had the best time..the people of Illinois are just wonderful..they give Southern Hospitality a run for it's money..so glad you enjoyed yourself.

It was good to see you again too, my friend! BTW, I thought making others jealous was part and parcel of the game? May have some even better scotch next time... That was fun, and it was great to meet everyone.

Great description! But I like the fact that the little stories stay between us....but then again, I'm evil that way!

It was wondeful spending quality time with GREAT people! And it was the best time I've had in Chicago in a long time! Just wish it wouldn't have ended so soon!!!!!

But shame on you....giving away my secret like that! Feed me or ply me with drinks and I'll pretty much follow you anywhere! ;-)

Damn! I am within walking distance of Cafe Ba Ba Reba! I would have definitely fit in with my taste for the Guinness. My bad for not finding out the plans before I left on vacation -- I come back, a Chi-town blogmeet, and I am at home doing taxes!?!

Posted by John on April 1, 2005 12:01 PM

So sorry I missed you in Chicago (I live within 15 minutes of Ba-ba-re-ba)... and will miss you in Jekyll, too. Poop! If you're ever Chicago-bound again, count me in for the pub crawl, 'kay?

.. sorry, John and Omnibus Driver.. next time I am up that way, we'll definitely hook up...

Posted by Eric on April 1, 2005 01:16 PM

Great post, Eric. I've only been to one blogfest but you're right...they need to be experienced to be understood. Two more weeks, dude!

Posted by zonker on April 1, 2005 02:02 PM

Sounds wonderful. Glad everyone had a good time! In another year, I'll be joining ... just wait and see.

That was an absolute blast. And T1G is right: nothing makes me feel at ease like having a friend explain how they could kill me with random objects around the bar (seriously, it's not just a southern pastime, trust me on this) :)

I'm not bullshittin' - Mr Bad Example and I arrived BEFORE Graumagus. I think Grau had to come last to make his 'big entrance'.

Eric how much did you have to drink already when we arrived?? Or maybe you were still recovering from the night before?
