Miss Britt Goes To TequilaCon: A Photo Essay

Tuesday, May 6th, 2008

So, as you might have heard, I went to a little blogger get together called TequilaCon on Friday.

Here’s how it went down:

At about 12:45, Avitable and I boarded a plane from Orlando heading to Philadelphia. Of course, we kissed our loved ones good by from our iPhones first.

Goodbye Orlando, Hello Cleavage.

The bad thing about traveling with Avitable is he makes me buy him water. At a gazillion dollars a bottle at the fucking airport snack bar. The good thing is he’s a pretentious ass and upgraded us both to Business Class.

Business Class is Classy.  With a C

Sleeping is Classy too

We landed about who cares what time o’clock and were greeted at the airport by Karl and Hello Ha Ha Narf. No, I do not have pictures of that. Why would I have taken pictures of that?

We drove through the very lovely Philadelphia to get to our very lovely Hotel La Sheraton.

Nice Philly

I heard some people slept in these

Once we checked in, we had to call Hilly and explain to her that we could not come pick her up from the airport – but we would happily send a cab.

Traffic goes down ROUGH.

While Hilly was happily taking a cab from the airport, we found a few more bloggers who were also stuck in traffic.

By the time Hilly got to The Hotel La Sheraton, we were prepared to make it up to her welcome her.

Welcome to Philly Hilly!

Oh my God. I just realized I have no pictures of welcoming Hilly!

Oh. Wait.

Well hellooooo Hilly

Blah blah blah, yada yada yada, we all met up in the hotel restaurant to go out for dinner.

Basically what I'm saying is - Curry Sucks Ass

After spending all of someone else’s money on food and booze, we retired to the bar.

Lick. Slam. Suck.  I mean - uh - loop, scoop...er. Shit.

The Knitting Circle

The End.

Of The First Night.

    If you wear sunglasses in a car when it’s bright out, why is it different on a plane?

    And those puppies got to see lots of Internets people, too!

  3. Hilly says:

    Great photo essay! I loved my welcome signs! However, I really really wish that I would not have showed my boobs all night long…zoinks!

  4. Karl says:

    I think that’s a very accurate portrayal.

  5. Sarcomical says:

    oh dear, i’m in love with your curls.

    p.s. if i’m ever in your neck of the woods, i’m coming over to be “welcomed”. ;)

  6. did i mention to you how much i love your photo essays? coz i so do. of course i so love you as well.
    :heartbeat:

    ok, i can’t quit giggling over these photos. it kills me that you were able to get the teddy bear/rose dude as we drove by. i need an iphone. and by iphone i do mean iphone, not adam’s cock.

  7. martymankins says:

    Wow. Part 1 has a cliffhanger… can’t wait to read the rest. Hilly sure loves to show the boobage… :rock:

    Hurry please.

  8. jester says:

    I’m hoping you guys can send me that afghan you knitted.

    I love afghans.

  9. Winter says:

    You gotta love the traffic in Philly. It’s nothing like the traffic in SoCal. I wanna be stuck in that kinda traffic…

  10. So. Damn. Jealous.

  11. Selma says:

    Looks like so much fun. Glad you had such a great time!

  12. Mr. Fabulous says:

    In that first picture it almost looks as if you have cleavage. That must have been a helluva bra.

  13. A very accurate portrayal of a great time. Photoshop is fun

  14. Dave2 says:

    A CLIFFHANGER?!? REALLY?!? :slaphead:

  15. debkitty says:

    Sounds like it was a ton of fun! Wish I could have been there! :sad:

  16. Trishk says:

    Do you think they will allow you in Business Class ever again??

    Great photos, though. I think I am getting a contact drunk from all the Tequila wandering around the internet these days!

  17. Jennifer says:

    looks like your weekend was more fun than mine.

  18. Britt's Mom says:

    Yeah – I had tequila Saturday night too but it wasn’t nearly as fun. I forgot to tell you about the major argument I had WITH BRAD (yes, THAT Brad) over the value of a human life after a few shots.

    Yours sounds MUCH more fun!

  19. Poppy says:

    Ohhh, sweetie… You ordered the curry? Next time you need to consult with me first. (I love curry, but not when it’s Vacation Dinner.)

    Philly traffic really is A Bitch.

  20. NYCWD says:

    Wow. I made a photo essay!

    I feel so… speshul. :clap: :clap: :clap:

    Oh and Philly traffic… it ain’t got nothing on NYC traffic… but it was a bitch.

  21. Poppy says:

    @Dawg: I would rather experience NYC traffic over Philly traffic any day. :angel:

  22. Damn, so THAT’S how you knit. Shit, I’ve been doing in wrong…

  23. Sounds like you were the life of the party and you learned you actually liked curry!

    OH, and next year I want an invite.

  24. Finn says:

    Damn traffic. I don’t know how anyone lives there.

  25. 1. I’d love to go to TC.
    2. I can’t keep up with you lushes.
    3. I guess I won’t be going to TC 09.

  26. Robina says:

    You all look like you had such a great time!!!!! And I would have LOVED to help with that Afghan! It looks like so much fun, and I have knitted in so long!!!! LOL

  27. Jen says:

    As always, another great PhotoEssay from the Brittster!

  28. Shelli says:

    Hilly’s boobs were awesome!

    It’s cold up here, I need some more afghans, dammit.

    (Okay, really it’s going to be 80 here today, but I still need more afghans. Lots and lots of afghans.)

  29. we_be_toys says:

    How do you get on the inside track for a get-together like this? I’m a professional “knitter” from way back, and I even have a pair of “twins” I could have brought along, though it does look like that aspect was well covered (or not, as the case may be!)
    Looks like a blast – can’t wait for the part II installment!
    :disco:

  30. Peggy says:

    Great. Now, I’m thirsty and want to knit!

  31. I can’t believe I missed the knitting.

  32. Honeybell says:

    I wanna meet a blogger! For no other reason than to NOT have someone look at me like I’m crazy when I try to explain what a blog is.

    Besides, the kids are done after the first couple of tequila shooters. Lightweights.

  33. metalmom says:

    I missed the knitting :cry:
    I don’t make out either! :cry:
    And I missed your magnet!!!!! :cry: :cry: :cry:

    PS Is a cliffhanger like a dingleberry? :dunce:

  34. SJ says:

    Knitting is always my *favorite* part of the party.

    I have a feeling TC09 is going to be HUUUUGE.

  35. [...] head to the bar where we continued our little party, exchanging chewing loudly for slurping loudly. Britt taught me how to do a Tequila shot (thanks Britt for the education, thanks Adam for paying for it). It wasn’t bad. I [...]

  36. Miss Britt says:

    avitable: because you’re not driving the plane.

    Hilly: but your boobs are FABULOUS!! I know. We got close, your boobs and I.

    Karl: I’m nothing if not 100% accurate.

    Sarcomical: I would hope so! I love welcoming!

    hello haha narf: we were stopped in traffic at that point. Fucking traffic.

    martymankins: lol, sorry, it wasn’t meant to be a cliff hanger. It was just getting really… really… long.

    jester: it’s in the mail baby!

    Winter: it is a little easier to handle this kind. :evil:

    Undomestic Diva: oh! don’t be! Be convinced to come join us!!

    Selma: loads and loads of fun.

    Mr. Fabulous: fucker.

    libragirl: Photoshop is mah friend.

    Dave2: listen here MISTER! Don’t you be slamming my recap! :crazywife:

    debkitty: oh you would have so enjoyed it. Maybe next time?

    Trishk: of COURSE they will let me back in business class. I am, clearly, classy.

    Jennifer: well THAT stinks.

    Britt’s Mom: because you like talking to a wall??

    Poppy: I was asking everyone! Why did you not help me out?!?

    NYCWD: in NY you can take public transportation though, so that makes it better.

    CMG: well now you know better!

    themuttprincess: an invite? Dude – no one got invites. We were all gate crashers! Come along!

    Finn: me neither. Seriously.

    A Whole Lot of Nothing: it’s not all about drinking. Adam didn’t drink at all.

    Robina: knitting is something that should be done regularly.

    Crys: wish you could have been there.

    Jen: thank you :D

    Shelli: and they smelled nice too.

    we_be_toys: ummm… I read it on the Internet and invited myself. LOL

    Peggy: I recommend lime when knitting.

    Black Belt Mama: next time you’ll know – stay where WE stay! :wink:

    Honeybell: that really is the best part – the whole “not being crazy for a weekend”.

    metalmom: you didn’t get a magnet??? WTF dude?!?!

    SJ: I can’t believe we have to wait a year for the next one.

  37. Poppy says:

    Apparently you were being too quiet, because I never heard you ask. :wink:
