There were FANTASTIC costumes!  Brasse was there, she took first in the costume contest.  My favorite was two darling small children and their mother (I assume).  Oh, and the necro with her wraith.  The Bride was led down the aisle by Darth Vader and two Stormtroopers!!! I have some pictures, except Alaska Airlines misplaced my suitcase.  It should be here tomorrow.

Thanks, hon, you got my back again! Oh!  Ke`la took these pictures.  Y'all shouldn't have to wait for me to work them into a piece: We organized a two-group raid to throw Grimwell in the pool.  We actually had a hard time getting him to spawn, and with the help of Ashlaine discovered that Gordo is his PH.  But he finally popped, and we got him: Then I got ganked by a couple of Freeps.  Sorry for my pasty-white-won't-tan-no-matter-what legs.  I did manage to take one of them in with me!

Me too.  Fortunately the laptop full of notes and my audio recordings was in my carry on.  (No, I'm not posting the MP3's.  The quality is abhorrent, they were just so I don't screw up the details and bring y'all bad information)

Next year I'm paying attention at the pool party.  Was deep in coversation at the other end of the pool when Grimwell got tossed so I was only half paying attention. Did cheer when you took one of those Freeps with you.

I had so much fun. SMILEY Grim's wife, Gethani, and I were off somewhere else at the time. ^_^ Looks like the party ended up being a blast though. I don't think many people would have been able to handle the sheer hotness of me in a bathing suit. Oh yeh, behbeh! (so joking, I'm so not one to have a high opinion of my own looks)

/sigh

 No luv for the Templar with the video camera. I too got to witness the curves of Winter, and the snuggly Momochi.

Heck, Calthine usually complains that she is never in the picture, but the only shot I'm in is the one of me tossing Grimwell into the pool. Oh yeah, ya wouldn't know that because the ol'lady never mentioned that. Oh well, that is just a continuation of what happened the whole event:

"This is Calthine's hubby, Sutures."

"Oh hi!...... Wait, I didn't know you played?"

Someone, somewhere, has a pic of what happened after Calthine instigated the Freeport folks enough that after  she went back into the pool again, and I joined her.  {grin}  Other than that, I managed to avoid most of the cameras over the weekend ... I think. I am exhausted, but I had such a blast this past weekend.

It was HOT in Vegas, so going into the pool was a good thing. I was smart and left the Helio in the hotel. Pools + Booze = somebody's going in! I'm still trying to reconstruct my brain and have coherent thoughts... but it was a blast to meet y'all. Sooooooo many people.

So THAT'S who you are!  I ran into you a few times at the FF.  Specifically, I was the damned huge guy (6'7" ) at the front of the line with you on saturday morning. Maybe after I get home (I decided to spend a few days extra in Vegas) I'll post some of my pics too.  Seems to be quite a few of them out there from lots of people.  I got around a bit more this year, meeting more people than in Atlanta, so there's definitely some good memories around.
