Memorable moments from this weekend...

-Jim's addition to my Four Rules flashcards:
Mine (so my girls can practice):


-Hunting kittens by flashlight so that the Rabbits could adopt Daley and take him home with them (thank you!)

-Disappearing Appetizer and Disappearing Pie. NOM

-Literally kicking Jim's ass. Once for me and once for JayG, as promised.

-Shoe wars (just kidding!)

-Handing my phone around to everyone so they could talk to Wai, and hearing them go, "It's WAI? NO WAY!" (I'm easily amused)

-The image of Evylrobot Michael in swim trunks, hat, sunglasses, and cowboy boots.

-Apologizing to Ambulance Driver for having said "Shit-tons" possibly within earshot of KatyBeth, only to have him reply, "Don't worry about it, I didn't hear a fucking thing..."

-Having my daughters and/or KatyBeth repeatedly bring the Uno cards to me to be shuffled.

-OkieRhio manning the grill, and thereby rescuing the food from a fate worse than death (that would be moi!)


-Getting flung off of an inner-tube at high speed, on numerous occasions.

-Apricot pound-cake

-My twins entertaining the guests with their amazing, nostril-closing skills:

-Getting field sobriety tested by Matt G. And failing. "Turn around please, Ma'am and put your hands behind your back." YIKES!

-Jenni shaking her eyes in circles (very freaky!)

-Harley and Tucker going from person to person and getting lovin'.

-Playing Refrigerator Tetris with all of the leftovers.

-Receiving a call from Brigid.

-Being admired for my forearm strength and the muscle definition in said forearms. And for how well my veins pop up!

-Being asked at work if I'd had sex, since my face had "a glow" (FYI, no I didn't have sex, but I did spend time on the water...)

-Moving folks from my "Daily Reads" to "Bloggers I've Met" in my sidebar. :)

-Being aware that some guests were live-blogging or IM-ing. I LOVE BLOGGERS!

-Hearing my daughters' shrieks of (joyful) terror as they were being towed behind a jet-ski on an inner-tube.

-Jim kissing me on the cheek. Because Brigid told him to...

-Eating birthday cake ice cream


-Giving NcongruNt a chair massage while he was chatting on the Gunblogger Conspiracy IRC, around 4 AM or so.

-Having everyone applaud and cheer when I shouted "I have a GUN!"

-My first gun pr0n:

-Getting to play with a bunch of folks' guns, and having my daughters do the same.

-Hugging folks without being able to tell if they're carrying or not.

-Jim bolting away from bewbies.

-Unbelievably gooey, tasty brownies (are y'all sensing a theme here?)

-Desiree's gorgeous hair. And her husband's too!

-Chatting with Farmmom on the phone, while sitting on the banks of a lake.

-Seeing my friends from work talking to my blogging friends and having a good time doing so.

-Being really sore and very tired, but still feeling GREAT, 'cause it's a GOOD sore and tired.


-Most of all, meeting wonderful, incredible people, and catching up with old friends!

It sounds like a great time with fellow friends and bloggers.

Old NFO said...

Sounds like a great time, sorry i missed ANOTHER one... sigh...

Christina RN LMT said...

Lou and Old NFO, I plan to make this a regular thing. Don't know how FREQUENTLY I can pull it off, but this was only the first time, definitely not the last. :)

Evyl Robot Michael said...

Jen and I had so much fun with you and the group!

Christina RN LMT said...

Michael, we'll have to do it again, soon. Only with more shooty goodness!

Shannon said...

Hmmm...I didn't notice any mention of your new gun or good food there..:-)

Every November we have a picnic for family and friends - what started out 7 years ago as a weekend event has now stretched up to 5 days depending on who camps out. Who knows - maybe we'll see you here one year shooting off the back fence, huh Christina?

Christina RN LMT said...

Shannon, that would truly be epic! And yes, I sadly neglected any talk of guns or food...what was I thinking?!

Mulligan, ain't that the truth...I'm still trying to catch up on the zzzzzzzzz's part...

Refrigerator Tetris, that had my lol'ing. I'm so using that from now on. And for the record, I was running from moobies. Specifically AD's moobies

Christina RN LMT said...

Oh, MOOBIES! I see.

Somebody else coined the phrase "Refrigerator Tetris", I just can't remember who! I totally appropriated it myself, so feel free. :)

About that shooty goodness, we might have to see who we know that has access to a great range.

I'm sure something can be arranged even if it means a little bit of a drive for you.

Any time you want throw another party, let us know. SWLMMHCEM really enjoyed herself and loves to have gatherings - might be able to talk her into having one at our place.

Christina RN LMT said...

Bob, that would be fabulous! It was so nice to meet you both!

John the Texaner said...

Aww, I didn't get moved! Just an oversight, I'm sure. ;)

Also, enjoyed the party. Thanks for the couch! I'll certainly have to visit again for future events!

Christina RN LMT said...

WHAT?! I FORGOT??? Shit, I'll fix it ASAP!

You were very welcome to the couch! And you'll definitely get an invitation to the next event. :)

Lissa said...

YAAAAAAAAYYYYY!!!! *happy dance* I'm so glad you had such a great time!!!!

Christina RN LMT said...

I'm did a happy dance myself, after I read all the Northeast Bloggershoot wrap-ups! I'm so happy y'all had such shooty fun!
