I have just spent a glorious weekend with 11 totally insane people. The usual suspects were there: [livejournal.com profile] eatenbyweasels, [livejournal.com profile] esmerelda_t, [livejournal.com profile] gingerpig, [livejournal.com profile] lonelybrit, [livejournal.com profile] madders, [livejournal.com profile] princess_s, [livejournal.com profile] ruric, [livejournal.com profile] vampirefever and the newly betrothed [livejournal.com profile] vic_amy_z. We also had some fresh blood in the forms of [livejournal.com profile] sometimeredhead, a woman with a prodigious caffeine habit and a disturbing knowledge of government lube guidelines, and [livejournal.com profile] ok2nv_theoracle, this year's token male and token American! He did us proud. ;)

My liver may never forgive me. I consumed about 70cl ( around a fifth) of scotch, and almost a third of a similar-sized bottle of bourbon. And then there was the bottle and a half of ginger wine that was my main 'mixer'... ;)

I spent most of the evenings in the kitchen on my new laptop* (EEEEEEE!) writing, usually accompanied by [livejournal.com profile] madders while the others mainlined Queer As Folk in the lounge, but at one point there were seven of us, all on laptops perched on the kitchen table, and there were two external harddrives whirring away too. It was a veritable hive of activity!

On saturday, I got to taste real Texan chili, made by a real Texan!

Believe it or not, [livejournal.com profile] ok2nv_theoracle flew all the way over here just for the weekend, just to cook me chili.

Well, okay, maybe not that last part, but the first part was true and the chili was just a bonus. But a very very yummy one. *wants moar*

It was a wonderful weekend but it was much too short. Why can't there be seven days in a weekend? :D

Horbling #6 iconic quotes

On Friday night, we gathered these gems from From Dusk til Dawn:

"I'm a mean, mother-fuckin' servant of God!" (consensus was that this would make kickass Dean or Castiel icon(s).)

"I'll be a lapdog of Satan!"

"Death by disco ball"

"Psychos do not explode when sunlight hits them, I don't care how crazy they are!"

Then came the Horblingite quotes:

"Everything's better with vampires!"

"Poo fic is pushing it"

"I've got to try a Polish Kitten"
(NB: Damn, they were delicious!)

"Thundercats made me gay"

"The special gravy"

"We have custard issues. (Don't mention the funnel.)"

"You still have clothes on?!"

"I approve of manscaping. If you expect someone to put something in their mouth, the least you can do is take the hair off it first."

"My hag harem is bigger than yours"

"I/He taught your boyfriend that thing you like"
(t-shirts totally count for quotage!)

"Show us on the doll where Seema plucked you"

"Having fruit for dinner doesn't count if it's deep-fried"

"Quick! Knit me a tasselled buttplug!"

"I want to be cremated and have my ashes scattered on Michael Shanks"

"I could redefine laziness if only I could be bothered"

I'm sure there were a squillion more quotable quotes floating around, but I and my trusty notepad did the best we could. *g*

Is it next November yet?


*Laptop details for those who want to know: Acer Aspire 5735, Windows Vista Home Premium, 4GB RAM, Intel Pentium Dual CPU T3400 @ 2.16GHz, 32-bit operating system, 15.6" widescreen. Beyond that, I really don't have a clue. *g*

I haven't used it enough to have an opinion of Vista yet, but I love having a security blanket in case my desktop dies a laptop. It's going to be so useful when Mommie Dearest gets here and starts wanting me to check things for her via Google and IMDb. Now I'll be able to train her up to do her own mousework without interrupting my important flisting and ficcage habits. *g*

In conclusion: I AM BACK, Y'ALL! Whatchoo been upto?

So glad you had an awesome fannish time! Glad to have you back! *hugs* Was going to use the scotch icon, but in deference to your liver opted for tea.

The quotes made me laugh as I typed them out. They so need to be icons!

Thank you! *smooches*

Now enjoy the remains of your time off. :D

Thank you! :D

My liver is being... weaned. I'm slowly reducing the scotch intake so it doesn't go into shock or withdrawal. ;)

Sounds like great fun. :) I've really got to do more fandom meets.

Been meaning to ask for a while if you saw this set of scans (http://asylums.insanejournal.com/scans_daily/1087459.html#cutid1).

Apart from this year's writercon_uk, Horbling has been my only regular fandom meetup, but they never stop being fun.

Suki and Kitty have talked me into going to the SFX Weekender in february. My last chance for an actual con before I turn 40, egads!

OH GOD! I had seen someone quote that penultimate panel, but I didn't have any context. I love it! Thanks for the link. :D

...Does this mean Ted's coming back? I get more and more confused by DC canon by the day. LOL!

Given the current major DC crossover event Blackest Night is all about zombies coming back from the grave, I can safely guarantee there'll be a Blue Beetle in the very next issue of Booster Gold.

Hurrah, you're back!!! Sounds like you had an awsome time. Love the quotes. I think I need you to follow me around with a notepad just to record everything that I can never remember, if that makes sense.

Laptop = 'S nice!!!

Sounds like you had a Fantastic weekend!

"I'm a mean, mother-fuckin' servant of God!" (consensus was that this would make kickass Dean or Castiel icon(s).)

Castiel in one of his grouchier moods. ;-))

"I could redefine laziness if only I could be bothered"

This needs to be embroidered on a delicately frilly pillow on my bed. ;-))

Love you, honey! *smooch*
