(I figured I’d wait to make thin until the Montrealers got home, and that it wouldmn’t be knocked to the next page.)
Please, contribute what you will.
So yesterday was the TorDope Fest.
Trinity and I got to TO early so we could walk around. SHe’d never really been to TO so it was a treat for her.
TIme passed and we arrived at Montana’s. We were early so we sat at the bar and had a drink. About 20 mins later, a large crowd walk in. It was the rest of the Dopers. Cerowyn didn’t seem to recognize me and walked on by…no big deal…I didn’t recognise him either.
Noyb picked me out right away. “Hey! I know you.”
I went to join the group after paying my bar tab.
Before getting to the table, a woman walked up to me and said, “Your Max Override?” with a big smile. It was LaurAnge. Very nice, and very cute. What a way to be welcomed. It was then that I learned how to pronounce her name. ( “L’Orange” French for “The Orange” I guess…she doesn’t look like an orange though.)
Trin and I took our seats and thats when Cerowyn recognised me. “Wow! Quite the hair cut.” was his greating. We sat down and the introductions started.
Now, I really suck with names, so there was no way in hell I was going to remember all these new ones, so, I would stick to User Names if I needed to call someone.
ScottEvil leaned back and introdused himself. Funny…for some odd reason, I always thought his real name would be Scott…funny. Ah well…he’s still ‘like butta’. And what a character!!! His “Coffee Talk” impression was priceless!!!
The dinner went on, we finished up and left to go to Vinnies.
Now I’ve been to Vinies before, but it has changed a wee bit. Vinnies is a bar that has a game room, but not just any game room! It has pool tables, driving games, skeet ball, and two bowling lanes!!!
The group found a table and some of us went off to play the games for a bit. I tried my hand at the pin ball machine and just kicked royal ass!!! (No one was more suprised than me!)
After a few more games, I headed back into the bar and we all chatted about this and that. (The music could have been a little quieter, but it was some retro stuff, so I dealt with it.)
Trin and I left just after midnight with Noyb to grab the subway and we went home.
We arrived at about 3AM and I was up at 8:30 AM.
One thing trin and I did remember was, (And it shames me to thing aobut it.) I never left money for that last beer I had!!!
I was paying as I went all night, but when I rejoind the group, my last beer was added to they tab, and I left when I was done.
So today, I’ve spent the entire day cleaning the house, because my weekend isn’t over yet, oh no!
Gingy and WeirdDave are coming by myplace on Monday and it turns out that Mnementh is gonna join us!!!
(As soon as I can gat all the names I learned with the faces, I’ll come back with more details.
