The SwampDope thread is four pages long, so I thought I’d start a separate wrap-up thread so that we can all go right to the comments. I’ve already posted there, but I’ll copy it here:
Flying a helicopter is the most fun you can have with your clothes on!
So what I do it rent a helicopter, take off all of my clothes, and it’s the most fun I have…
Have a great time! And LMK what your Sao Paulo contacts say.
The DopeFest was fun! That was only my second time in Pioneer Square. I’d been meaning to take the Underground tour for a long time, but never got round to it. I pulled my copyrighted ‘So, do you come here often’ on Ruth, the girl at the table outside of Doc Maynards. (I like saying that to women who obviously work at a place. Usually gets a laugh.) She said I looked exactly like ‘Todd’. Apparently she thought she knew me. Weird, eh?
I ate entirely too much dinner. Scotti and I found a pub and I had a Cobb salad there around 2:30 or 3:00, before going on the Underground tour. Didn’t finish it, it was so big. I grabbed some espresso at Tully’s too. I guess we had dinner about – what? Five hours later? After that big lunch, I was only a bit peckish. Nevertheless, I ate my entire Dungeness Crab and Shrimp Fettucine and a piece of bread. bloat I’d ordered a cup of clam chowder, but they forgot to bring it. I didn’t want to be charged for it and not get it, so I got my cup of soup. Absolutely didn’t need it; but I’m a sucker for clam chowder. (It was tasty, but I like the chowder at Stephanie’s here in Birch Bay better.) Did I say bloat? Now we’re approaching a dangerous overload! Can’t resist coffee! Hey, I have an idea! Let’s pour some liquid into an already-overloaded stomach!
So anyway, back at Doc Maynard’s. When Scotti introduced me, I heard ‘You’re Johnny L.A.?’ :eek: I don’t know if that’s a good thing or a bad thing. Ah, well. In the immortal words of Popeye the Sailor, ‘I yam what I yam. Agagagagagagaga!’
I guess I crawled into my rack around 00:30. When I woke up, the clock said 06:14. Yikes! I may have to take a nap later. But first, a pot of coffee…
