Mario and The Magical Mystery Tour
Right away I have to admit that I made a BIG mistake. Before Mario left, I told him if he'd send pics I'd post them today, Thursday, MY DAY....
And since dealing with a whiny Mario is worse than the any dire doomsday scenario you can imagine, I'm going to fulfill my part of the bargain. The good news is that Mario isn't in any of the pics. When you see who he was traveling with, you'll understand why I say that. There's nothing more disgusting than a drooling man. Unless it's that pimp line phone...
Mario: Cherie Priest and Caitlin Kittridge with their casino balloon drinks in Las Vegas.
Me: I didn't think Caitlin was old enough to drink.
Mario: Cherie Priest, Caitlin Kittridge, and Vicki Pettersson in the Clark County Public Library before our talk and signing.
Me: Hence the remark about the drooling.
Mario: Mark Henry using the awesome Pimp Line phone in a Vegas collectibles (junk) shop.
Me: Only a man would call the "pimp line" phone awesome.
Only Mark Henry could manage to look like he's used it before.
Mario: us in San Diego at Mysterious Galaxy.
Me: I wish I'd been there. MG is one of my favorite stores...no snarkiness, just jealousy.
Mario: in line to get the world famous and celebrity endorsed Pink's hotdogs.
Me: So what does a world famous and celebrity endorsed Pink's hotdog
taste like? Trust Mario to leave out the most important part.
Mario:Richelle Mead and boyfriend in (Seattle) Palomino's the last night of the tour.
Me: I love Richelle. Not in the biblical sense. I love her writing, I mean.
I'm sure this will not be the last we hear about this trip. In fact, I'd bet on it. Between our blog and The League of Reluctant Adults, which Mario, Mark, Caitlin and Cherie are all apart of, there'll be pictures galore and accounts of Mario being thrown out of bars and getting laughed at by call girls. I told him before he left, leave the coin jar at home. It'll work on the slots, but the working girls like the folding green. I'm sure he didn't believe me.
He never does.
