Hello everyone! I also made it home safe and sound...and drunk hahaha. It was also a VERY good idea for me to take a cab back to my hotel and to the airport. So what I spent almost $100 gizillian dollars from downtown to the airport...I wouldnt have been able to find my way to the bus stop even if I was given a yellow line to follow. Those cosmopolitans were G-O-O-D!!!!

I had an awesome time...all of you were great and FUNNY! We certainly have to do this again, hopefully soon. I vote for Florida in January since Isa will be down here then .

Tina, THANK YOU for showing us around and taking us to the good places. You were awesome!! I hope you got some good sleep last night, especially after the drinks. For some reason I couldnt fall asleep until 3 am (I got in at midnight) so I am running on three and a half hours sleep .

I forgot to bring my cable to download the pics. I have almost 100 pictures so I also have to go through all of them and keep the good ones...I will create a blog for it.

Sam, Pete, Gretchen, Kris, Tina, Quan, Evan, and Viv it was wonderful meeting you all finally. Thanks for the good time and great laughs! Now...lets get back to TP business!

Yeah, back to work everyone.. The serious business of talking about martinis, chocolate, thread jacking, associating words, etc..

It was a very good weekend indeed guys - I believe it was the great job organising by the powers that be (bows humbly to the TP Queen and his wife, Tina et al), show bags (those who couldn't make it - you wouldn't believe what you missed!), and a particularly strong commitment to making utter fools of ourselves at any possible circumstance contributed to the enjoyment by all.

Thanks once again to all who went to the effort of turning up.

Indeed, thanks all! Was great meeting up with all of you! Would you believe I made it to all three micro breweries of 'les 3 brasseurs' in the last 3 days? It just so happened of course, I didn't go looking for them Q left this morning and we're currently sitting here with seethesky who decided he liked the city so much, he'd spend a few more days. Great city!

Beerman just keeps banging his head on his desk, hoping the sweet release of unconsciousness will make work tolerable.....

What? Oh, right then...
Everything was fantastic in the City of Motherly Love (pssst, T, thats's what it means, right?) It was a pleasure to meet everyone, even though no one would let me do my Birthday Beerman impressions......

By the way, does everyone know Sam got upgraded to Business Class?

[i]By the way, does everyone know Sam got upgraded to Business Class?

Really??? How did I miss that conversation?????

I know something you don't know.... The Overlords are entertaining a guest for a couple more days... I think they have tied him to a chair and definitely have removed all matches from the vicinity... ;)

Business class, you say... I bet that was really cool, but probably not as good as Singapore Airlines... Singapore Airlines has fresh fruit!!

Holy Crap!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I MADE IT TO FULL MEMEBER!!!!!! How did that happen?

All I can say is...Sam and Pete..."Good Choice!!"

Beerman secretly wonders if it was the head banging or the bribes in M-Town that did the trick.....or was it the "SOUND THRASHING AT POOL ON SATURDAY NIGHT BY THE USA over THE AUSTALO-NORWEGIA ALLIANCE???????????" We may never know...

My guess - you only one posting away from Full Member before the thrashing... But, a little kick*** never hurts!!! Well, I take that back - there's a pic you have to see before you get too excited...

(No, not one of ours!!)

It was really nice meeting you guys Friday night! Sorry I couldn't make it on Saturday. Yesterday I endured a tiring day of dragon-boat racing in the cold and the rain. I thought about calling you guys last night and see what the remaining gang (i.e., the ones who had not left) were up to. Unfortunately, I was too tired and couldn't peel myself off my bed as soon as I arrived home. I'm glad that y'all had a good time. You're a really cool bunch!
