DW Meetups in the Works!

424617_536463029752915_1572777554_n

There are several DW Meetups in the works! I’ll post links in tomorrow’s forum round-up, but wanted to make sure they didn’t get lost in the shuffle, especially since one of the meetups is tonight (!), so I’m posting them here, too. If you live in or close to or are planning to visit any of these cities, don’t miss your chance to meet some awesome fellow DW readers/ potential new friends (this could be YOU):

Chicago — TONIGHT at Toro Sushi!!

Houston – August 31

Minnesota — September 21

Philly — October 3

Northern/NE Ohio?

Connecticut?

If you don’t live in any of the cities listed above, organize a meetup in your town. It’s easy — just start a thread in the meetup area of the forums with your city’s name as the topic title. If you feel bold, pick a date, time and location yourself. If that scares you, put some feelers out to see who’s around in your area and when they’re available. Done! The worst that will happen is no one shows up and you sit at a bar alone and drink martinis and make out with a child star of the 80s.

        Personally, if I had made out with Elliott (who happens to be a very good looking former child star) I would ride that high for a good few months. Even if I had a crappy day, I’d say, “Well, at least I made out with Elliott.”

        He is SO GOOD LOOKING. And frankly the pictures on imdb don’t do him justice. Did I mention that throughout our chit chatting at the bar I kept saying “really, you have great bone structure, can I touch your face.” And he let me! He said I have good bone structure. Then I said no you do,then he said no I do. This was a sign he was really drunk.

        ^ And I’d like to think that was a sign that I was drunk to but I don’t think I was then. I’m a sucker for good bone structure. Have you guys seen Paper Moon – that’s the movie about a character named Addie Pray, my namesake? Anyway, there’s scene where Madeline Kahn tells Tatuum O’Neal (who plays Addie) “You already got bone structure. When I was your age I didn’t have no bone structure. Took me years to get bone structure. And don’t think bone structure’s not important. People didn’t decide to call me “Mademoiselle” until I was seventeen and getting a little bone structure.” Ever since I saw that scene I’ve been all about the bone structure.

        Ok, I gotta work.

    My like button is broke (something wrong on my end, almost definitely. Whyyy, workplace, have you implemented some weird security system?) so I can’t “like” all the “hahahaha” “lmfao” comments, & must reply with my own.

    LOLOLOL @ at that last line. AP must be delighted to be alluded to in a main post 😀

      Yes! I’ll be in Oregon the week of Sept. 9th. But the West Coast is pretty long so we may still be miles and miles apart.

        Ugh that just reminded me that I didn’t respond to that. You essentially can’t communicate with me on fb and expect to get a response. And lately I suck at responding to e-mails as well (two friends currently hate me because of said inability to respond to e-mails in a timely manner) and I’m also not the greatest at texts. In summary, I am thinking about you, caring about you, wanting to see your face, and sucking at life — all at the same time.

        so, that still wasn’t a response :-). You better be coming, you better bring a plus one, your plus one better be your goddamn hot piece.

        And I need an in-person update on ALL THE THINGS!

    Hahahahaha. I. Love. It. *and* It’s. So. True. I am still pretty high on myself right now. Who knew some wet kisses and heavy groping by a former child star (who is no longer a child; he is 41 now, just in case that is confusing) on a sidewalk could be so soothing for the soul? I know now.

    Ladies, ladies, for our party of 5 tonight I have already started an agenda of things to talk about. I think I have exhausted the Elliot story but I have other conversation starters. They include, in no particular order: (1) ktfran and what’s going on with her coworker lover; (2) kmen and what’s going on with her summer fling now that summer is turning into fall?; (3) rose and candy- hi! – I look forward to learning all about your personal lives but promise not to be too, what’s it called, in-your-face; I have already met ktfran and kmen at two different meetups so I’m allowed to be in-their-faces, right ktfran and kmen?

      RIGHT! You can be as in my face as you want. Although I’m not making out with you against a wall next to any el stops.
