The Night Before THE NIGHT

ConFab has come and gone. An excellent time was had by all. I will attempt to tell you of all the fun.

Brad and Liz were the ultimate host and hostess. There was plenty of food and copious amounts of alcohol consumed by one and all. They seemed to be everywhere at once, making sure that everyone had a drink or a plate of food while cooking all sorts of culinary delights. They greeted each and every guest, acting as though we were all “family”. For this, Bubblewench and I rewarded them with a gift from our neck of the woods: Tastykakes. (YUMMY)


After settling in, napping up, and getting pretty, Sybil Law, Bubblewench and I joined the others at  Southland for a night of drinks and fun. On the big screen,  Becky watched her beloved Penguins win the Stanley Cup. So great was her happiness, that she bought a round of Patron shots for the entire bar to celebrate.  And then……


I, a Philadelphia native and Flyers fan, drank a congratulatory toast to the the Penguins. *I hang my head in shame*

Other shenanigans were afoot. Photos were taken (both Friday and Saturday) that showed me more than I ever wanted to know about my friends and their sexual prowess. I’d love to tell you all about it all, but ConFab is like fight club and Vegas….it all stays there.

Can we talk about karaoke? For sure! Brad and Liz are old pros. This is something they do frequently, so of course they jumped in right away. Karl gave his awesome serenade to Brad, Marty was incredible, and there was Coal Miner’s Granddaughter. This seemingly proper and low-keyed woman gave a rousing performance of  Sir Mix-a-lot’s “Baby Got Back”. But this was not the one I was most impressed with. Laci, a new friend, stepped onto the stage and sang Bare Naked Ladies’ “One Week”  This is a difficult song to sing totally sober. Laci was not. She sang the shit out of that song, not missing a word or a beat. She claims to have skipped a verse but I couldn’t tell.


Unfortunately, I was not feeling my best. It turned out that I was sick, but I didn’t know just how sick until the next morning.

Drink count for the evening: 4 waters, 3 beers, 1 Duck Fart, and 1 shot of Patron silver.

    BlondeBlogger-I felt so much better later (The tale for tomorrow) And unfortunately, no, I just wasn’t ‘feeling it’. My stomach and head were not up to it. :((

    I totally skipped a verse. I can’t sing that part sober, let alone drunk. LOL

    fantastagirl-I was so happy that you made it after all that ‘yes-no-yes-no’ business. It made me immensely glad to finally meet you and your husband!! :d

    Laci-Not many folks can pull off being funny, friendly and lovable when they are drinking. You, my new friend, were ALL THREE! :* I’m still not quite sure about the Twittering….maybe ….when I do, you will be sure to know!

    Giggling about being an ‘old pro’;-) Gosh it was GREAT to finally meet YOU. You must come over from Philly when we make it to Pittsburgh–we’ll drink some Patron and cheer the SAWX!

    Turnbaby-The drive to Pittsburgh was the L-O-N-G-E-S-T part of the entire trip! (five or was it six? hours). But I can tell you, I will always be up for a road trip….especially if seeing you at the end is the payoff! :*

    So glad to get to meet you. You turned out to be exactly how I expected you. I felt like I’d known you for years.

    We did seem to overstress our credit card on the trip, but that was probably more the two trips to Hooters and the stop for illegal fireworks. Ahh, ConFab Baby, Hooters, and fireworks! What a trip!

  17. Metalmom said:

    on June 17, 2009 at 11:04 AM

    Nobody- I felt the same way. But honey, you could have saved alot of money by skipping Hooters and looking at mine! I’m cheaper…Or just cheap. :))

    I was too sick to go. Maybe sometime you hicks could come to Atlanta, if the big city doesn’t scare you too much.

    Howdy!  I’m baaaaaaack!!!
    Taking a blog hiatus has been a good thing for me.  I was beginning to feel some sort of self-imposed pressure to post something every day and it was becoming a drudgery rather than enjoyable like it’s supposed t…
