DRINK UP ME HARDIES, YO HO (aka Make Jessa a Drink)
Rach – Lusers – “Tea with the Imperials”

Congratulations to all the athletes who won, because we know that it’s all about winning, so the losers (or Lusers!) can piss off!

Vegetarian Spank Inferno RULES!

FINALLY!

It took six drinks, but I FINALLY have a buzz! Apparently, the drinks I tried were VERY low in alcohol content. I’ve rectified this…Death Sticks have done the job. Heh.

Be afraid. Be very, very afraid

Club Jade scares the gamers. The aforementioned boat race was a huge hit with the gamers. Tim kept making comments to those who stopped to stare at us as we carried a cardboard boat into the convention hall. “It’s raining a lot. We’re starting to get worried.”

On a lighter note (or maybe not) we really miss everyone who wasn’t able to attend. The level of snarkiness just isn’t the same without you all here.

A big hello to you all! And have a drink in honor of those of us drinking here in Indianapolis.

Jessa’s Bar

At this very moment, we are witnessing the drinks created for the competition. Rach’s drink is to be served with clones, er scones, with clotted cream. More later, but tragically the Bailey’s is gone. We must secure more for the bar for tomorrow!

Galactic Games Medal Count

Rain could not dampen the spirits of the Galactic Games athletes as the Games officially opened today at Military Park in Indianapolis. As of this time, the medal count stands as follows:

Vegetarian Spank Inferno: 3 Gold, 2 Silver
Vinyl: 1 Gold, 4 Silver
Lusers: 2 Gold, 1 Silver
APG: 2 Gold

The Drink Up Me Hearties Yo Ho is beginning as I type. The Filk Off will be later this evening. I’ll update the medal count later.

Go Veg Spank Inferno! :)

To those less fortunate

Greetings and salutations from the con suite. (Con suite- why does this sound like a french food term, incidentally?) We’re watching cartoons and drinking. All in all, it looks to be a very good sort of night. It will be an especially good sort of night if I manage to make it back to my hotel room under my own power. I did not achieve this level of verticality and mobility last night, much to my shame, having to be escorted home by friends.

Anyway, having a lovely time, wish you were here, only not really, as there’s no place to sit anyway. Okay, wish you were here maybe a little bit. If you had your own chair.

Tip: Don’t light sparklers in a pavilion.

The Galactic Games opened today. .. GO LUSERS! It was COLD. And RAINY. Enough to make me whine like a Skywalker. Who won? I don’t remember. Probably Spank.

Did I mention it was COLD. And WET? The Sith planned well.

But the Games were fun and the food was good, and PG got to practice the act of illegal parking, so it was worth the inevitable tuberculosis outbreak.

We just got back from the last game (Commandeering a Ship) which involved trekking halfway across the convention center. In my socks. Jedi Bitches! There were wonderful chairs, though. I can’t remember everyone who raced, but Tom Sam and Trina did try to cheat in their usual charming way.

And now the drinking!

Last Man Standing…

Well, literally…but I’m not the last sentient. According to the door list, Eliz and PG are both also left in the Bounty Hunt. Sadly, I’m also “Wanted”, as I forgot we were in an “out of bounds” zone and tried to kill my target. Oops. Now, I’m fair game for ANYone, and Yav keeps reviving as a clone…I’ve killed her once, and she’s died twice. So, we’ll see what happens…I’m having fun…that’s all that matters.

Well, that and winning. Yep.

Drunc Learns a Lesson

By supreme Acts of Mary’s Bar, I experienced my first hangover since my junior year of college this morning. I’m not even sure if that one really counts, since it was caused by half a can of Miller Lite. Ugh.

But this… Oh, this was a mighty hangover. Drunc is dead; Long live Drunc.

CJers, check your mail. Eliz has set up a test of the webcam in our room – we hope to have it up here in the suite tonight. Watch this space.
