Delta gets you there... eventually!
Jeanne and I are back from RT 2010. What a time!
But first, late post because my flight from Columbus missed the connection at Cincinnati and I had to spend the night in beautiful Erlander KY. Fortunately I found a bar across the street and diluted my consternation with scotch (served in cheapy plastic cups).
Now on to RT.
WOW! Most of the Leaguers with there, along with honorary members who joined us to help rid Columbus of excess vodka, wine, and scotch. Which we replaced with copious loads of snark.
Our plan to slather on the snark included our epic and infamous RT 2010 Passport. To be a collectors item for sure because of all the scribbled smut and crude drawings that defiled the photos of our fellow Leaguers. I think Jeanne started the trend. Or Mark Henry.
New Leaguers were welcomed with a hug as Jeanne did with Carolyn Crane
brought along her creepy zombie-complexion doll, which gave shivers to both the drunk and sober! Diana played neglectful lush mommy with a convincing touch.
donned a white wig and served on the illustrious Faery Court (sans wings as the butterfly woman to her right)
A lot of the conference action happened away from the hotel. Lori and Rachel entertained us with woman-on-woman hijinks on the pool table at the Char Bar.
The Book Fair swallowed us whole with its ginormous awesomeness.
But the perigee of League shenanigans was no doubt, the Rock Band Party/ Public reading of erotica.
emceed the performance, a dramatic reading of steamy excerpts. Among the choice words: veiny, quim, and cods (<-WTF?) A classic historical romance.

Finally, sad news. Lori Armstrong shared the news that the First Offenders Blog
