Llamapalooza Wrap

Many thanks to all of you who took an interest in our much-ballyhooed 3rd Anniversary Llamapalooza Celebration this past weekend.

We wound up with a small but extremely agreeable table of participants. In addition to Self and Steve-O, the Missus was able to wangle a last-minute babysitter and tag along. We also had Lintenfiniel Jen and her Beau and Professor Chaos (who even now is wondering what he's gotten himself into).

I think I'm correct in saying that the astonishment of the evening was the appearance of none other than INDCent Bill. It was astonishing a) because he showed up in the first place despite all our taunting, and b) because Bill is an exact doppleganger of a rowing buddy of Steve-O's and mine from college, and for one wild moment, neither of us could figure out what the hell Danno was doing in Alexandria. In the end, though, we did just fine. Bill even wound up riding in our car, as we gave him a lift back to Dee Cee. (Beep-beep, mm, beep-beep, yeah!)

Anyhoo, a very pleasant time was had by all. Thanks all of you for coming. We hope to see lots more of you next year.

Oh, and I wanted to highlight something Bill says about things:

*** Robbo's wife is very pretty and charming. Not to mention patient, as she kindly put up with endless talk about blogs. I don't think Robbo would argue with the assessment that he's punching above his weight-class in the romance department. "Better half?" More like "better four-fifths."

Heh. No argument there.

Yip! Yip! Yip!

Thanks for hosting. It was a pleasure to meet all of you and I was glad that another blog spouse was there. I think she and Beau were the most bored of the bunch by the blog talk.

That said, we look forward to future gatherings with the Llamas.

Sounds like much fun was had by all - I'm bummed we couldn't make it.

I'm so envious! When we finally make a family trek up that way, I will demand an audience with the Llama herd.

Well, I made my way down there but when I asked the host to direct me to the Llama party he looked at me like I was crazy! If anyone noticed a lost looking young man wandering around, then leaving, that was me! It was a lovely night to wander around Old Town, however. Yip! Yip!

Bad luck, Misspent! I'd been hoping you'd drop in. Next time. (You too, I hope, Beth.)

Jordana - absolutely. Whenever you're in Dee Cee, give us a hollar.

Jen - Yips right back. We obviously have to get Beau and the Missus into blogging so that they can appreciate the mad little world in which we live.
