THE GIRLS ARE READY!!!

IT'S MEET UP TIME!!!!!



We all arrived late of course. We arrived at El Charo café at about 7:15pm everybody was there except for Dan, Megan, Dante and Lani.  Harriet took individual photo of each of us. Nobody has not order yet; we were too busy taking photos of each other.  I sat next to Melissa and Donny. I wanted to sit next to Brett and Erin cuz I wanted to share dinner with them.  I sat across from them.

 

After ordering, Harriet stood up and made a toast to us for coming to AZ for the meet up and to us and happy travels. Then Harriet wanted to introduce ourselves where we are we from, how long we have been on TB and what is something that no one know about you. Then I yelled out with a big “WHAT NO WAY”. Then Harriet says “THANK YOU MELANIE FOR VOLUNTEERING FIRST” then everybody laughs and I gave up. I looked at Erin what do I answer about “name one thing that no one knows about you” I am pretty private about some of my life. Erin whispers in my ear and I said hey good idea. I stood up and I said I am from LA and I live in VEGAS. I have been on TB since Jan 15. 2007. One thing that no one knows about me………



I paused for a bit on what i wanted to say and i was thinking out loud "WHAT IS ONE THINK THAT NO ONE KNOWS ABOUT ME", then Keith blurts out "THAT YOU HAVE FAKE BOOBS". WHOA WTF OMG!!!" i looked at Keith with an "OMG" look on my face. I looked at Erin and i looked at Melissa. Everybody was laughing and saying OOOOOOOOOOOO DAAAAAAAAMN!!!!!!. I began to say HELLOOOOOO THESE ARE REAL AND I AM FROM LA. then Donny said, YEAH LIKE THAT IS EVEN BETTER.
MY NORWAY GIFTS FROM LIZ
  HAHAHHAHA. After all the smart ass comments and Erin and Melissa sticking up for me, i did answer my question..... and i am not sharing it here :P too bad you were not at the meet up HAHAHAHAHA.

 

There was plenty of OOOOOOOOO, AHHHHHHHH, AND OOOOOOOOOHs with everybody’s answers. I have been the longest from the group. You can say am a TB vet. My fave was Tim’s turn, he answers his questions then he adds I am #6 in the GREight Eight Club. Erin and I both stood up “WHOA WHOA SINCE WE ARE GOING TO BRAG ABOUT WHERE WE STAND.”Erin blurts out “AM #3” and I said I am #2.  While this is going on Donny turns to me and says “I have no idea what that means.” HAHAHAHA.

 

HARRIET SPEAKS 20 DIFEERENT LANGUAGES.

DEMA HAS A TWIN SISTER

ERIN WAS A PROFESSIONAL BALLERINA

ROBYN HAS A PILOT’S LICENSE

KRYSTA WAS A IN THE OLYMPIC USA DIVE TEAM

MELISSA LOST 100LBS.

 

We all took photos of our food especially the huge chimachanga that Brett, Erin and I are planning to share. We all had separate discussion about where we are traveling next.
ERIN, BRETT, AND ME WITH THE AZ TBs
What are we doing for NYE. The next meet up. I will be in AZ next month for classes.

 

Then I turn around it was Liz time to shine. The bartender and our server brought out a sombrero and a bottle of jose cuervo tequila. They flip her head and poured the tequila down her throat without a shot glass or tube HAHAHHA. We all cheered.  WELCOME TO THE WEST COAST!!!! I told Harriet to do the gifts after we all ate. Harriet announced to everybody our “most further TB” award” goes to LIZ because she is from Norway. Shortly thereafter,  the VEGAS CORE CREW has a gift for Liz as well. We gave her a pink shirt and a shot glass that says LAS VEGAS. She can remember us by every time she takes a shot. HAHAHAHA.

 

Then I was time to do the “THIS DRINK GOES TO” signs. We toast to our fellow TBs that could not make it or just because we want to honor them.  after that we took photos of the AZ TBs, newbie TBs, and international TBs.

 

We went to touchdown bar to hang out. I wanted to talk and hang out. come to find out there was billiards and karaoke. YESSSSSS I WAS EXCITED.  I plan not to drink GOOSE too much. I was responsible for 3 people to be home safe. i ONLY HAD ONE GOOSE THE WHOLE NIGHT. I bought Melissa a apple-tini to loosen her up. she was not in the mood to sing “BABY’S GOT BACK” with me. I was bribing her with drinks to do it. HAHAHAHA. she won’t see by herself. I sang SWV - "weak and Madonna - " like a virgin with her. I pretty much took over the song. All you could hear is my voice. HAHAHAHA. 

 

While I was waiting for our turn for Erin, Krysta, Melissa and me to rap “baby’s got back.” I was talking to Tim and Rosie.
ME, LIZ AND HARRIET
  We were talking about Rosie’s kids, Canada, and her move.  I talk to Tim about his future trips. He is going to the Chicago meet up sometime this month. I was trying to get Donny to sing "I AM TOO SEXY" HAHAHHAHA. Well, all the guys and make them take there shirts off HAHAHHAHAHA.

 

OMG it was our turn, WE ARE SOBER MIND YOU!!!!!! We were rapping our hearts out. 4 girls rapping to sir-mix-a lot HAHHAHA. Erin was grabbing Mellissa's bum to shake her bum. I should have given Krysta my mike cuz she knew the words and beat by heart. I was all messed up and laughing and hoping in boobs don't fly out. HAHAHAHHA. I was dancing and singing. I know we sounded horrible. Next time am going to make Melissa sing all ny herself, maybe make her sing Debbie Harry's I wanna touch myself HAHHAHAHA. OMG she will kill me. We sounded like hell. We did not care. We were having a good time. although I was getting tired after that. OMG after nate sang and I don’t remember what he sang.  We close down the bar. it was 1am and I still need to drive back home.  EEEEEEEEEEEEEEK

 


WOW  what a fun meet up. I would like to say THANK YOU AGAIN TO HARRIET FOR ORGANIZING A VERY EDUCATIONAL AND FUN MEET UP. I ENJOYED TOMBSTONE THE MOST. GOOD JOB!!!!  BETWEEN US ORGANIZERS, IT IS A VERY STRESSFUL JOB TO HAVE. I HOPE YOU HAVE SUPPORT LIKE ME.
