I Went To TAR and All I Got Was...

... WET! You'd think a duck wouldn't mind a little water. Really, I don't. I swim quite well and enjoy a good dousing now and again. What I did not anticipate was needing a surf board, oars and possibly a friggin propeller on my Honda to get me into St. Louis! And it wasn't just raining there, I'm pretty damn sure I passed Noah along I70 and with lightning bolts zapping the horizon every 2.5 seconds I was sure a Twister would appear in one of them.

I hydroplaned my petrified little Harriet (yes, I named my car) into the hotel garage sometime around 9:30pm. The only place left to park was at the top which is open air...and its monsooning...and there are tornado warning sirens going off everywhere...it was fucking fantastic! I'm pretty sure it was Travis fault. He brought the bad weather with him. If you'd like to see my initial arrival shot, you'll have to click the link and jump over to rxbambi. She was the first to snap a pic as I was the last of the Friday arrivals to join up with the group, who were pretty damn toasted by the time I got there. I missed all the YMCA fun (apparently Travis sang and danced for the HardRock Cafe patrons).

 I also got....
...An ASSHAT from CoffeyPot, whom I adore and love and am super happy to have met. I could hang with him all day. Even 9 year old little girls fall in love with him. He's awesome!


...A Compass from Ed (I am NOT truly directionally challenged no matter what he says)
...Some shit from Travis (because, well, he's just Travis)
...Whining from Jeff for punching him (really dude? I hit like a girl...buck up cowboy!)
...Kid Funk backing away quickly (evidently my hugs are to be feared)

and shared some estrogen with Travis' Missus....bless that woman many times over.....

That's the Missus in the orange...to her left is Coffey and of course to the right is Big T

Oh AND I got this TShirt!

 AAAAnd I got to teach a little sign language. Here are Travis and rxbambi practicing their favorite sign
Plus we did some super awesome activities like laughing until I peed going up into the Arch
view from the top
our motley crew, minus rxbambi and Barb
I actually have a ton more photos, but like many a family albums the viewers often tire of looking at shots. I do believe there will be a slide show floating around soon. Its been requested that we send our photos to Travis. He's working on something...in the mean time if you'd like to see other shots and read more accounts of the weekend fun click through the following list of awesome people and see just how funny they thought I was.

After seeing the first line in the paragraph I thought this post was going in a whole different direction.

Love you, Hubby.

I also love Hubby.

The weekend was AMAZING, and I'm still pissed at you for leaving early on Sunday, even though I was an idiot and got the times wrong.

I can't for the next one, and yes, that's what she said!

Salt said...

You could not be any cuter in your Asshat! That hat is amazing. WANT.

It looks like you guys had an awesome time and I have much jealousy. I want to go to a bloggity meet up one day!

The Empress said...

I'm all like, "whaa??? you never told us you were so dang cute!"

And, here, I thought you were just out of this world funny.

I need some time.Don't know if I can stand the double whammy of the cuteness factor and the wit to boot.

Jenn said...

Sounds like y'all had tons of fun (and I'm not talking about Travis *rimshot*).

We had a bloggy gathering over the weekend too and it was...Well, bull riding, protest marching and whale condom wearing FUN!

Check my place out (start at Volume I) if you want the deets (or if you want to laugh your ass(hat) off...)

Coffeypot said...

I love hubs, too, the pussy, but the dude could never pull off the Ass Hat like the duckalicious Miss Daffy.

Stacie's Madness said...

sounds and looks like you all had a great time!

Hillbilly Duhn said...

I'm on the band wagon with everyone else in saying you're cute! Though I imagined you looking slightly different, I gave you longer, and curly hair in my brain, and slightly taller with perhaps glasses! But otherwise my head version of you didn't do you justice!

Meeko Fabulous said...

I'm glad you guys had so much fun! :) I'm kind of jealous . . . I'm not gonna lie . . .

Momma Fargo said...

Ha! Love your hat! Coffey has such great taste. And you are the cutest teacher from the hood, ever! Looks like you guys had a great time. Glad you did.

Dual Mom said...

I'm so jealous that these fuckers got to meet you I can barely contain myself.

Tami G said...

Nancy C said...

Sounds like fun! What would happen if you had a hole in your asshat?

carissajaded said...

Monique-aka-Surferwife23 said...

Did Dual Mom just have an orgasm?

Mrsblogalot said...

LiLu said...

Jealous! It looks like a blast! :-)

The Blue Zoo said...

Aw, thats so cool!!

Glad you had a ton of fun. And glad a tornado didnt blow you away.


And I love your hat of course!

Matty said...

Now don't I envy all of you. Some day I'll get out to one of those events.

Sounds like you all had a great time, and plenty of souvenirs. Love the hat on you Duck.

Tracie said...

Looks like a good time! Wish I could have been there.

MiMi said...

What?!
I'm jealous. I don't even want to hear about it. Okay, srsly. I'm leaving now. Damn you and your TAR.

Raoulysgirl said...

You went up into the Arch? Are you nuts?

I've lived at "the lake" most of my life...been to STL many, many times...and I have NEVER...N-E-V-E-R been talked into that crazy snit!

You are a MAD WOMAN!!!

Sounds like you (and everyone else) had a great time!!!

Pat said...

By the looks of your photos and the rest of the gangs - everyone had a great time. I'm betting that Travis can't remember a thing - or he's making everything up!

You are a cutie-patootie, but I knew that already! I saw you on a video on another blog.

Heather said...

You look great in your asshat :) Glad you had a good time.

Erin said...

Ok, I am in love with your hat! So sweet he got you that!!
Love the pics, can't wait for the slideshow. Glad you are back safe & sound.

xoxoxoxoxo

Ace said...

I'm jealous you got to meet Coffeypot. Where did he find the hat?

kate said...

I love the Asshat :) I'm so bummed that I couldn't make it - I told Travis that the next one needs to be scheduled further away from my husband and I buying a house so that I can peel myself away from painting/sanding/spending asspiles of money to go.

Glad you guys survived the tornadoes :) Good ol' Midwest!

Danielle said...

Looks like a blast! So jealous
