as i was rummaging around in stuff in my room and buried under various random objects and papers, i came across something that made me drop everything STAT and come down and make a livejournal post STRAIGHT AWAY!

for those of you that were at the famed lj drinkup, the very first one in portland...

... i found my autograph book.

in my drunken haze, i passed around a little keychain book and had everyone autograph it...

this is how it plays out as you read it:

WAHOO! - Allison
When was the last time you said 'wahoo'? Sigh. - Tom (oatmeal)
Best Wishes - T and T
rock! - amboy00 Chris
I *heart* men! - phallicmephisto
Grasshopper always wrong in argument with chicken. - Rev. Peaches F. Blackstone
I totally have a crush on you. Drinking is great. *unsigned*
*random drunken scrawl over the crush notation that looks like it reads "WM Zook" over and over*
To a fellow Phoenician God love the northwest! - Cindy
Let's make out - onionsniper aka drunk canuck
KanDoNEThing - It's not just a name, it's an ATTITUDE!
12 September 2003 ednoled aka De'Honde Bell says. "Yo!" (hard to read.)
tefen doesn't do autographs. No way, no how. tefen
*weird initials looking scrawl*
*drawing of Tefen by Tefen*
*drawing of bald guy by frobear*
Aubrey is a Sexy Bitch - frobear/donaesthesaint
NICE TO MEET YOUR SEXY SELF... XOXO - ENKIDUPDX
Nice to meet you - you're beautiful! - Sage :)
I LOVE YOU DRUNK! - pixie_girl aka Courtney Dawn *in GIANT smooshed letters*
I never liked you. - Jenny d3d

it makes me think that we should SO have another drinkup. i mean, hell. it's been a year and a half? at least, for any that i've heard of. i remember us leaving all happy and huggy and solemnly droolingly swearing to meet the first thursday of every month thereafter. i think i remember there being one scheduled for the following month, but due to... situations... almost no one that i know RL before the first one ended up even wanting to go to the second one.

anyone game?

in retrospect, i sort of really wish that we HAD had one, but things were just so durned busy with the wedding and everything, i don't remember having mental energy to complete anything!

the second drinkup failed miserably... my brother had coordinated the first one to great great success and started to coordinate the second one, but then some random ljer that no one really knew butted in and took over and made very sketchy plans. i guess that the end result was a bunch of people sitting in a restaurant somewhere that was comprised of like 6 or 7 different rooms, most of them never knowing until later that there were even other lj'ers in the same building.

shows HER! HA!

i also took a book thingie to the rave i went to recently. amazing what you get in a book at one of THOSE functions!

the picture of Tefen was by tmcm who draws a comic strip.


Which makes it far cooler than if I had done it.

in retrospect, i can't remember why on earth we would choose a thursday night.

in fact, in remembering things i would go to in phoenix, too, stuff like that would always happen on thursdays. maybe because it's acceptible to go to work on friday morning hungover, because you just have to get through that day only... and then more exciting things happen on the weekend?

mayhaps.

that's why you folk should be HERE. scrumbles agrees that things here are so much more relaxed and fantabulous :)

It's tempting. I certainly can't see raising a Aurora to being a teenager around here, but I also remember how devastating it was to move around a lot. Most of the family is back east and I can't get them to ever come visit Phoenix.

well, keep portland in mind ;) or vancouver, if you don't want to pay oregon taxes.

comment, take three
Yeah, I guess. I mean, I dunno. Maybe.

Kidding. Let me know if it is actually happening. For the first one, Kerry and I spent about three weeks yelling about it on the internet; the problem with most LJ-inspired get-togethers is that people just don't seem to *go*.

I wonder if anyone has pictures from the first one? It would be fun to do a 'before and after' thing.

First week in August sounds good -- it would be a real trip for me to see spiritual at a drinkup.

shit! I meant to go back and check that before posting. I started typing 'fiercerose' first, and then went back and changed it, too.

Um. what year is it?

Oh, also: I took a bus out to Montgomery Park to look for a job today, and it went past what's left of the Civic. They're tearing it down.

i remember seeing pictures posted after the fact, but i can't remember for the life of me who had taken them. jessie may even have some SOMEwhere, for all i know, taken on his craptastic camera.

for the most part, i think i'm beyond drinking, other than a beer every once in awhile. the idea of being trashed and feeling like DEATH the next day just doesn't carry the same appeal anymore.

i don't even think i will be wanting to have a giant party for my birthday this year, like i usually do (well, karaoke bar style, anyhoo.)

dont do it friday or saturday night :P I've booked you, Aubrey, anyway for those days.
if people would actually go on a weekday night, It'd be so cool, but they wouldnt... I dont think

i think that when we had it before, it was on like a thursday night or something, i believe.

pretty sure it was, anyway. it's funny how thursday is the day of the work week that's TOTALLY acceptible to go out and drink, because everyone knows that - generally speaking - they just have to trudge through one more work day.
