Aww...sorry to hear that, RevPlease!  But that's okay, we'll see you at the next babble gathering - this won't be the last one! - Michelle

Joey Ramone

I'm in a little village in the NWT this week.  I'll raise a glass of something in your honour Michelle.

Raising a shot of Drambuie to you at this moment Michelle, as I had to have dinner first, even though I am sure you all are well beyond the shooter stage....out east! :D

All the best in what life has to offer you, and take it each and every time, as more will be offered...

 

 

Michelle

Thank you so much for the wonderful note you sent, remind!  Maysie read it out loud and we all went "Awwwww!"  :)

Papal Bull

Super fun!

Michelle

Thanks for the great time tonight, folks.  Yes, we're home already.  It's a school night, y'know. :)  I got a gold watch and a lifetime membership to rabble.

Just kidding...actually, I got a gift card and a lovely bottle of ice wine.  And of course, a fun night with babblers and rabble staff.

Michelle

P.S. This is what happens when you don't guard your blackberry when you're out with certain so-called friends. :D  Thanks a lot, Tor!  I'll find a way to get even, don't you worry. Tongue out  Password protection time!

Oh yeah, like you weren't?  Looking forward to seeing pictures posted.

I'm not posting because I'm still drunk.

Highlights include:

  • Encouraging Tor to Twitter on Michelle's blackberry
  • Saying inappropriate things to the waiter, radiorahim, and other people who I don't remember
  • Shots of tequila with Papal Bull! Yeah!
  • Watching the waiter flirt with radiorahim, Michelle, and later, oldgoat! Woohoo!
  • Reading remind's lovely letter
  • Getting a hilarious water bottle from Michelle as a "hello" gift to the world of paid moderating, with the words "Boss Lady" on it. Ha! Thanks, Michelle.
  • Sit-dancing and singing to 80s oldies song and reflecting that songs from my youth are now oldies. Damn.

It was a great night.

So sorry I missed it, but I didn't think a vicious cold would make an appropriate parting gift.

Once again, babble comes to life! Fun party! Good luck in your new role Michelle. If you thought babblers were a challenge, wait 'til you deal with organizations :) 

Papal Bull

I just looked in my wallet and realized I left 40 dollars at the end of the night to cover my drinks. Some of that better have been part of a good tip for the waiter, and a bit more should've become a donation to this fine website (or drinks on PB...either way)

And don't forget the Banana Jack! I kind of wish I had tried one! Great night, everyone. :)

Michelle

The banana jack was GOOD.  But I was assuming it would be some girly-drink-cocktail.  Not a straight-up shot! 

PB, we noticed that after you left and it was too late!  Did you mean to only leave 20?  That probably would have covered it!  I can give it to oldgoat to give to you next time I see him. :)

Sorry you couldn't make it, LTJ.  I was wondering if you were going to show up!

oldgoat was there, and he was pretty sick. Some beers seemed to fix that, though. Smile

Michelle's BJ shot inspired the tequila shots. It's a domino effect.

Hey, when's the next Toronto-area babble gathering?

I meant to leave 25 to make sure everything was covered, including a healthy tip!

Bacchus

Sorry I was not able to make it but the baby's been sick recently and we just a little on edge over it

Glad hear it it was fun...fun...fun, wish I could've been there, perhaps I can fly in when I am independantly wealthy! ;)

 

Tequilla shots should not be missed.

 

 bacchus hope your baby bacchus is feeling better soon, there is nothing more worrying than a sick infant.

Michelle

Sorry to hear that, Bacchus - hope the munchkin's feeling better soon.  It's no fun when they're sick.

I can't do tequila shots...that's out of my league!  Although I did them with Rebecca West and radiorahim last summer.  Which is when I discovered they were out of my league. :D

Relegated to the 'bush league' eh?! ;)

 

Tequilla is wonderful stuff, every decade or so....perhaps us slightly older persons may have grown an immunity to it's effects, after all Tequilla Sunrises were the vogue in the 70's. :D

Bacchus

It was a perfect trifecta. The little Bacchanae got RSV (bad cold, really bad for infants) which turned into bronchilitis while Mrs Bacchus got a cold turning into Bronchitis which became Pneumonia and I got a splendid flu which put me out for 3 days. We all recovered mostly just little Bacchanae has a cough still and with the cold being bad in TO, we just are not risking taking her out.

 

But thanks remind and michelle. Im really sorry we missed it since we wanted to bring little Anya and have her watch us feed you tequila

Michelle

That's okay - I'm sure there will be other babbler gatherings where I can meet the munchkin. :)  Glad everyone's getting better!
