Neil and Hilly
Yes, Tequilacon is over. I got to meet a whole lot of amazing bloggers.
Yes, Sophia was there.
Yes, everyone liked her more than me.
There was alcohol. There was stick-on tatoos. Sophia received a tattoo of a tiger on her cleavage. Bloggers forgot my name.
The event took place in a converted school that is now a trendy hotel/bar. It is not surprising that I reverted back to my elementary school days — I was intimidated by the girls and enjoyed hanging out with the boys. It was an honor to meet such cool guys as Dave, Karl, Dustin, Mad William, Vahid, and others. I was even shocked that my long-time evil nemesis, Brandon of the the defunct One Child Left Behind, is actually a sweet, interesting guy.
The girls were another problem. In one room were gathered some of the most gorgeous, glamorous, and intelligent women of the blogosphere — Jenny, Jessica, Postmodern Sass, Hilly, Ms. Sizzle, Jill, Kimberly, Adena, Stacy, Communicatrix, Sibyl, Chantel, and others. Without one glass of tequila, I was getting drunk on the sensuous scent of female bloggers’ pheremones. Luckily, this being a former school, there was a shower in the men’s room! Three or four times during the evening, I had to slip away from the group and take a quick cold shower to enable me to continue chatting with others without me drooling like a crazed lecher.
I know it sounds a little ridiculous to some of you to drive all the way to Portland to meet a few bloggers, but it was totally worth it. I can’t wait to meet the rest of YOU.
My one concern about meeting a blogger is that it makes it difficult to go back to reading his blog, which is a pale imitation of the real three-dimensional person. It almost makes reading his blog irrelevant. So, while it was great meeting all of you last night, I think it is only appropriate to now delete you from my blogroll. Thanks…
