wtf's up with billmon? first he posts a loony-tunes "that's all folks", then his site goes 'temporarily unavailable'. hope he's okay, and will return to the game before too long.

i was in Lansing, MI over the weekend. the local paper ran a front-page para on the AP poll showing that 13% listed bush as the greatest hero of the year, and 25% listed him as the greatest villain. except they didn't actually report that second figure--they just told us that he had won the greatest hero of the year in the poll, with 13% of the vote. nothing about 1/4 of the people thinking he was the year's greatest villain.
unbelievable what that liberal media will do.

one reason why i like unfogged is cause you don't have open threads.

Hey you party-throwers, you all threw an excellent party. Including the part where everyone kept punching spackerman in his armored chest, even though everyone else who had just punched him were holding their fists in pain. Also, the cider was great and the crackers were arranged in intricate patterns. It was even fun after the cops broke up the angry Bertrand-Russell-was-wrong-about-Herbert-Spencer debate that was going on on your front step.

And it was excellent to meet so many pseudonymous people. UnfoggeDCon was teh pwesome.

This thread requires more party anecdotes. Fr'instance: Labs is unusually tall. Spackerman prefaced the dance-phase of the party with a lengthy lip-synch to Eminem. Alameida had a gold chain with the name 'Alameida' on it.

Some highlights. Jackmormon's moves are the shit; she did a like, female version of James Brown's moves, to James Brown's songs, that was quite a thing to behold. Also, I believe it was said that Neil's dancing was like a regular person dancing to the beat... times a hundred. There was a campfire-like joke-telling session circa 4 am, where many of the jokes that were told in that one joke thread here were re-told, to great acclaim. There were some ill-advised tequila shots which had roughly the proportions of glasses of wine. Labs has mad moves.

Greetings from Houston. I don't remember how I got here, but I wager it involved trains and cabs.

m. leblanc was there? Did I know that?

Did y'all keep calling ogged after I left (around 4 a.m.)? If so, did it remain saucy or slide into apologetic?

Other observations:

Alameida is probably the best and most interesting person ever.

Apostropher is indeed teh hero, and he's got a great voice. Obviously, he was the announcer at the Mineshaft Cock Fights, which took place shortly after 5am.

Labs is freakishly tall and a wild dancer. He's also very kind and has a well-trimmed beard.

Chopper has a very large camera (IYKWIM...).

m. leblanc is wonderful, though she seemed a bit tired after rocking out in the basement with Spencer.

BitchPhD is charming and hated on me only briefly for not wearing a suit.

CharleyCarp was there, I think, and I completely missed him. Dammit. I wanted him to taste the wine I brought.

m/d is a splendid chap and has good stories about crappy beer.

m/tch is also delightful and stayed way late. Woo, m/ster m/lls.

And of course: catherine, 'smasher, and Becks can throw one hell of a weirdo internet party.

Ditto w-lfs-n's thanks to the Oban-bringer, and to Chopper for finding some brown alcohol when I was despairing that it was all gone.

Labs is fucking hilarious (but you all knew that) and I woulda kicked his ass if he hadn't been so drunk that it would have been cruel.

Chopper owes me some bacon. IYKWIMAITTYD.

Alameida is actually about a jillion times more gorgeous and fabulous than those of you who haven't met her yet imagine her to be.

MattF is much cuter than he has ever let on.

I am disappointed that I didn't get more time to talk to Mr. Helpy-Chalk, who was busy chattering about philosophy or some shit like that in the kitchen with Hilzoy. (Also Labs, until I dragged him away to punch Spencer and spank w-lfs-n.)

I happen to know that there were at least four people who got laid, but I ain't saying who.

SEK is the nicest fucking person on the internets. Hilariously, though, he didn't know what "the internets" meant and thought it was weird that Berube used that term in his talk, until I explained.

And LeBlanc, I TOLD you you could come back to the hotel with us. But nooooo. Even after I told you I wanted to get laid. Bitch.

Are we talking four hookups? Or four people? Either way, I think your estimate is low.

Stanley: I'm creating a separate, non-mother-in-law-findable account just to post these pictures. I'm blurring Labs' face because of his stated desire for anonymity in general. Anybody else who wants to be blurred, speak up, although I took a pretty sweet picture of you, Stanley, so don't you speak up.

In a comment to the picture Smasher linked to in 135, I employed the phrase "the demesnes that there adjacent lie", relocated from Romeo and Juliet, where it mostly has the meaning of domain, and where it follows the line "By her fine foot, straight leg and quivering thigh".

Demenses are something else entirely, though found in the same area.

Chopper: Also, it was incredibly kind of you to share the couch with me when a few extra of us wound up staying over.

Jackmormon: Well, Ficke stole my couch, so I had to invade the one you were on.

Huh. I would have totally put my money on Chopper over MattF in a couchfight.

And yeah, that was a totally awesome party (despite w-lfs-n's presence), though I still can't figure out whether to thank or curse whoever it was who brought the ouzo.

I'm dumb enough to do massive tequila shots but even a whiff of that stuff was enough to turn my stomach.

The bringer belongs in the malefactor camp, in my book.

Those all might be fine liquors on their own but not when broken out at 3 AM after people are already loaded on spiked cider, wine, and tequila.

Dude, the ouzo-bringer was a malefactor. After my experience in Turkey with rak─▒, I stay away from all that shit. Yikes.

Although tequila's not much better. After that first shot, I kind of thought I might die. Hence my expression the second time 'round.

Hey now, raki (at least Cretan raki) and ouzo aren't really the same.

And you know—tequila can actually be good, if you get some that's decent and you drink it at a reasonable pace.

Raki, ouzo, and pastis are all largely anise-flavored liquors, transparent in the bottle and cloudy with only a little water. I like them all a lot, but they're not to be drunk at the end of a party because nothing else is around. That way leads to misery.

Why not choose a real-life hypothetical, Jackmo?

Ouzo is indeed delicious, especially if it's Lesbian ouzo, which is indeed what was at the party. I just probably should have shown a little more moderation in my appetite for it that night.
