From: firstname.lastname@example.org (Lori) Subject: Lori's S00per Smash-Bang Virginia Elf Spat Recap Date: 19 Sep 2000 00:00:00 GMT Message-ID: <email@example.com> Organization: Cubicle #14 Newsgroups: alt.fan.tom-servo Editor's note: events recorded did not necessarily happen in the order written. It's all a big blur now... FRIDAY ------ Brendan calls and says he and Jason are on their way - FINALLY! (Wayland and Bessie bailed out and didn't come, the weenies.) I wait around, clean the house some more, chat with Lots42 (boo!), watch Farscape - twice!, and nap. They finally arrive at 2:15 AM. They flip a coin, and Jason wins the guest room; Brendan gets the couch. Good night. SATURDAY -------- I woke up earlier than everybody else so I worked in the kitchen on my famous Spinach and Artichoke Dip. The guys eventually wake up, and we have donuts for breakfast that they brought with them from NC. Mmmm... donuts... I also had made some biscuits. Brendan and Jason then get the scenic tour of Woodbridge. First to Blockbuster, then to Best Buy, then to another Blockbuster, then to the grocery store. Oh well, Jason's European heavy metal CDs that we were playing made it bearable (except maybe to Brendan). Arriving at Beth and Jaime's place we discover a stuffed Peep that had been jammed into the door knocker so we'd know which one was theirs. We knocked, and all said "Peep!" when Beth opened the door. I felt like a kid at Halloween, only without a costume. Upon entrance, we encounter the rest of the crowd: Jaime, Tara, Robin, and Captain Infinity. Beth's daughter was there too. Ferrets, ferrets, and more ferrets! In our shoes, up our pant legs, under the cushions, etc. etc. etc. What fun!! They were all so adorable - Myron, Bentley, Attila, Cronan, and the rest whose names escape me and I don't feel like looking up. And as Cap quoted, Cronan tried to bite me on the ass. I was in the bathroom at the time. 'Nuff said. Somewhere during the afternoon John VanSickle showed up, and he brought some chain mail that he had made himself. It was HEAVY! We were impressed. The day was spent doing a whole bunch of stuff. (This is where my memory blurs and it's all one big whirlwind from here.) Tara and Beth played guitar and we sang lots of songs. Jaime had some really good Canadian beer too - yummy! We watched some "Babylon Park" and later "Logan's Run" - this was Brendan and Jason's idea, in honor of me. For those that don't know, it's an early 70s sci-fi flick about a society in the 23rd century where people are killed when they turn 30. It was one of the dumbest movies we'd ever seen (IMnsHO), and John, Jason, Brendan, Robin (anyone else I forgot?) did a *GREAT* MSTing of it, which made it worthwhile. Um lessee... I remember watching some Red Dwarf episodes and we also played charades. Some of us were more under the influence than others, which of course made it even more fun. Brendan made Holy Sandwiches, and they were delicious as usual. Lots of talking, laughter, eating, and general good times had by all. Oh, and Captain Infinity gave us all anal probes, and some other stuff. Don't ask me about the Mandatory Elf Spat Sex Orgy - those are the memories that are blurred out the most, probably for good reason. SUNDAY ------ I woke up early - again! I got productive and did the dishes and read the funnies, and was bored off my ass for about 2 hours. Jason finally woke up. He finished off the donuts while we laughed at Brendan who was still asleep on the couch. We finally got tired of waiting for him to wake up, so Jason got out the kazoo and blew it, which did the trick. Yay! Ken (my husband) decided to tag along with us this time. I think curiosity finally got the better of him about "those Servo people". :) Captain Infinity was sporting a bright green and blue hawaiian shirt. It was awesome! (Hole would hate it.) Tara showed us some "Liquid Music" which was really cool, and we watched MST3K bloopers and more Babylon Park. Then we all headed out to the park to enjoy the beautiful weather. Brendan once again made sandwiches, although they weren't as holy this time. We all gathered around the camcorder to watch the videos Brendan took at ChiCon on the little tiny screen. I can only imagine how this looked to the other people at the park. But what really freaked 'em out was when we posed for group photos (taken with about 5 cameras, one at a time) and said "Peeeeeeeeeep!" instead of "Cheese!". I saw some really strange looks from the next table. Beth took Tara and Robin to catch their bus and the rest of us (Cap, Jaime, me, Brendan, Jason, and Ken) played frisbee. At one point we had three frisbees going at once. As Cap said, he fell and did a back flip - very impressive really. Later on Brendan, Jaime, and Ken told military stories. Then Beth came back and we heard some stories about their wedding. As Brendan already posted, we tried to ditch Jaime, but it didn't work. Went back to the condo and said goodbyes, etc. Cap dipped me (as in dancing). I've never been dipped before, so I didn't know how to position my feet. Can't wait to see those pics. I brought Brendan and Jason back to my place, they got their stuff, got one more pic of me with the two of them, and then they left. And thus ended the elf spat as I know it. -- Lori Of course, as soon as Brendan and Jason left, I made a beeline for the computer to catch up on posts.
