HERE I GO........



I don’t know what came over me. I wanted to update my map on TB. Unfortunately, I forgot my TB handle and password. I had to start all over. On June 9, 2007, I created a new account.  i started to browse on TB more. I started to welcome new TBs. my BF at the time was out on deployment until September 2007. I was looking for other means to pass the time.

 

I eventually remembered my old TB password and I deleted my new one. I wanted to keep the friends I added. I added Roger and Mark.  My top 5 TBs that I had added when I first met are Heinz (jdax57), Julie (pinchora), Noah (nzelvis), Tommy (99thoan) and Julia (sleeplessindenver).  3 out of 5 I have already met in person.

 

I started to add one review about the “Scheeballen”, after that I got addicted to winning all the seven awards.
AWARDS AS OF 1/15/2009
I eventually got all 7 awards within less than a month. I received  my 7th award, on 7/18/2007 which is the happy happy happy award, i was in SCOTLAND visiting my BF at the time.  The 8th award was created in June 2008, the bedbug award. I received that within 24hrs after it was created. I was the second TB to receive it.

 

I have been active ever since. I have created 4 groups, I LOVE TB MEETUPS, VIVA LAS VEGAS, I LOVE THE TRAVEL CHANNEL, AND SSC, which is private group for only the CA/VEGAS TBs.  the 3rd MOST ACTIVE TB, 2nd member of the GREight eight club. I have one of the most featured blogs and reviews with Roger (x_drive), lauro, and Erin (poohstanggt).  That is 2 each featured blog and review you see when you login.
MY GROUPS I CREATED & AMOUNT OF MEMBERS AS OF 1/15/2009
I have co-organized and organized 5 unofficial TB meet ups, 1ST VEGAS MEETUP , 2ND VEGAS MEET UP, 3RD VEGAS MEET UP, LA (MARINA DEL RAY) MEET UP and LA (HERMOSA BEACH) MEETUP. Out of my 327+ friends on my list, i have met 138.  My LAS VEGAS, LIFE OUTSIDE THE STRIP blog is #63 page 5 on the MOST POPULAR BLOGS.

 

Let’s not forget the infamous “QUEENING” at the KC meet up. WHY I AM I CALLED THE “QUEEN CW????” it all started in the 1st Vegas meet up. Angel (jelly) and Tracy (tre69) was teasing me on my driving and I blog right when I get home from an event. It can be 12am and I on the TB blogging. I was labeled “CW” short for CRACK WHORE!!!! Yes such a loving name……NOT :P

 

One month later, James (pearcetoyou) added the QUEEN to it. It started with the QUEEN of MEET UPS then VEGAS QUEEN. Then James gets into the “KNIGHTING”.  It was blown out of proportion. I had a mock knighting ceremony for James at the 2nd Vegas meet up. I was not happy with it cuz I was knighting him with a BUTTER KNIFE. It was not appropriate ceremony.



AND THE REST IS HISTORY........
