Boxers 'n' Briefs: Shall We Gather By The River?

Ahhhh, what a fun weekend!!

First off, I would like to thank the Bookworms, The Gillespie Tribe, and especially the charming Baby Bookworm for organizing such a wonderful event: The American River Gathering in Sacramento, CA. The weather was perfect, the food was scrumptious, and the cooties were prevalent. Katie-bug and I travelled up Friday evening, and met up with such Letterboxing Luminaries as Princess Lea, Lisa and Robb, Doublesaj n Old Blue, and even some Right-Coasters ( < --- gratuitous harbinger) like Schizokeet, NoVA Coaster Fan, Sheba and the ineffable Cyclonic. I will leave it to Cyclonic to relate in his blog our hilarious antics that evening in the grocery store, which involved lock-n-lock knock-offs (knock-n-knocks?), pool noodles, a self-checkout station, and beer.

There were many memorable moments at the gathering; the SCA (Society for Creative Anachronism) beating each other with sticks in the pavilion next to us, Princess Lea's gigantic cootie, the wassa_raffle_u, and of course the friends and boxes. But perhaps one of the MOST interesting moments was at the after-gathering pizza party, where Schizokeet went up to a rather large hairy SCA re-enactor (they went to the same pizza place), and "cootied" him, saying it was "A message from Her Majesty the Queen", while we Huzzah'ed our heads off. Guess you had to be there...

Anyway, thanks again to everyone who helped and/or attended... it was a fantastic weekend!

I suppose since I gave you such a hard time about winning so many of the raffle items I don't even merit a mention? LOL... that's ok, at least you did not have me arrested... hehe... I was beginning to wonder when we heard all the sirens...
