This is my pre-con report. All that fun stuff leading up to the convention.
Picked Zarrah up at the airport. Poor girl had been sitting there for a good 35 minutes because her plane came in 30 minutes early. Immediately my Texas accent goes into overdrive because I’m now speaking with someone who has a stronger accent than my own. What the hell. No one cares what my real accent sounds like anyway. LOL
We went and ate a really greasy breakfast at the Kettle restaurant and then headed out to look for a liquor store to buy some booze for the weekend. I know the area pretty well but liquor stores are not something I frequent so, I had no idea where the closest one would be. We finally found one after about 20 minutes of driving. She picked out a little bottle of Bacardi gold and we headed back to go pick up redbytrade at the airport.
We waited in the baggage claim area for RBT to come in and I noticed that airports are probably one of the best places to people watch. We watched an old man walk around nervously with a dozen roses. It seemed as if he was waiting for his sweetheart to arrive from being away far too long. But then again, he could very well have been waiting for his young lover Pepe from Spain. Hehe. You never know.
Redbytrade finally arrived and we headed off to the hotel so we could check in. Check in wasn’t ready yet so we went out to the passenger pick up and drop off area in front of the hotel. We encountered our very first question of “Are you with the Buffy Convention?” This came from a very sweet girl from Spain named Alicia. We talked to her for a little while and finally were able to check in.
We decided to go eat at Mamacitas Mexican Restaurant because I had a $50 gift card. It was really crowded and the food was fairly good. Then we headed back to the hotel to see if anything interesting was going on. We ended up back in front of the hotel (they had benches to sit on out there). We got asked by 2 more people “Are you with the Buffy Convention?” It started to become funny. I began to wonder if maybe I had Buffy tattooed on my forehead. LOL We finally ended up in our home away from home “Basils Tavern”. This is the name of the hotels bar and we spent a majority of our spare con time there. We ended up having Carmilla and Scooter join us. Then along came our new friend Alicia from Spain. We laughed so loud and so often that most people in the bar couldn’t help but stare. After staring at us for about an hour, an older man sitting in the bar came over and asked “Are you girls with that Buffy convention?”
We had just told the other girls how funny it was and how we were now keeping a tally for the number of times we get asked that very question. By the time he got the last word out, we were all laughing so hard that the poor guy just shook his head and said “You ladies sure seem to be having a good time.” He didn’t get a response from us except continued laughter, so he moseyed on out of the bar. I think the days topic of laughter and this goes for most of the weekend too was about one of the 5 following topics:
- bad fanfic term: Furr Taco
- bad fanfic term: puckered flower
- "Are you with the Buffy Convention?"
- Naked cowboys
- various psycho fangirls
We ended up going to bed around midnight or 1AM. Not sure what time it was exactly. I do know I went up early because my lips were already going numb which is a sign that I’ve had waaay too much to drink.
We all three got up and around pretty early. Zarrah was not a happy camper from being up so early. LOL We went and ate breakfast and then went to wallgreens in hopes of getting me some headache medicine. When we were leaving, Zarrah found a $100 bill by the tire of my car. She then saw a $20 bill. Then we noticed that there was money floating across the parking lot. After chasing this said money down, we waited around to see if anyone was looking for it or if perhaps someone would come out of the store. No one ever came so we left. Zarrah ended up with $120, Redbytrade ended up with $120 and I had $30. The money fairy must of dropped it. But it came in handy for the entertainment we had planned for later that night.
I believe we got asked a couple more time if we were with the Buffy Convention. LOL
We pretty much sat around most of the day until it was time to go out.
9:00 PM - La Bare - Americas #1 Ladies Club
After a month of hearing these two girls talk about wanting to see some real cowboys while they are here, I came up with a clever idea. Not only will I show them cowboys... I'll show them cowboys that strip! LOL
Naked Cowboys... *thud*
This club has been in Houston for 20 years or so and it provides some harmless drooling/fun because the men that strip don't go completely nude. They strip down to their... *ahem* cock-slinging bikini's.
We get in the club and the host guy talked Zarrah into buying a party package which would give us a table in front of the stage and a free table dance from the guy of her choice.
My view of how things went.
Zarrah and RBT sat in the 2 chairs facing the stage and the first guy comes out... "Julien" I believe was the first dancer. They were just kinda like "whatever" Then he stripped and started shaking it all over the place and they both kept turning their faces around embarrassed. Trying to not to look. I think initially it was like driving a bad car accident. You don't want to look but for some reason you just can't help it.
Several dancers later and several drinks later... They were rushing the stage to stick those dollar bills in the dancers panties. LOL It was hilarious.
Zarrah fell in lust over "Tyler" the nekkid cowboy. This man was HOT. He was so muscled. The only way I can describe him is "Tyler is a very big Man who has the appearance of being thick with bulging muscles"
He had "Git it done" on the back of his bikini's. LOL
Redbytrade was lusting over "Mr. red-drawers" (we never caught his name).
Zarrah has a birthday coming up on April 15th, So my early gift to her was a lap dance from "Tyler".
She seemed to rather enjoy that. LOL
Our free table dance was given to redbytrade from "Mr. Red-drawers".
Here is a pic (sorta) of Tyler
The rest will be up in a day or two.
