9:02 a.m. BOUCHERCON UPDATE

This conference is a blast. I've met some really amazing people.

Jeff and Jackie are fantastic. I could just sit and listen to their stories for hours.

Cap'n Bob got on his knees and kissed my hand when we met, so he is now automatically my new best friend.

Susan McBride has such an amazing presence that you can feel her enter a room. And she was really nice to me even though I was a babbling star-struck idiot when I talked to her.

J.D. Rhoades is always breezing by with a harem of women in tow. The other men are jealous and are wondering where THEY can get their OWN harems.

Bill Crider is smart and gracious and has a great sense of humor.

Steve is charming and smooooooooth. I look forward to experiencing more of his charming smoothness later today.

Paul Guyot.... Let's just say that he gets points for them most ORIGINAL first meeting I've ever had with somebody. My lips are still tingling.

Patrick, who I met last night, is another of those people I could just sit and listen to for hours because he knows so much.

And there are many more people I met yesterday but I've got to get going if I'm want to make it to Chicago before noon. I will write all about this very interesting experience sometime this weekend.

Polly, it's okay. You can talk to me.

Tell me where Paul Guyot touched you.

So I can BEAT THE TAR OUT OF HIM!

Well, she said her lips were tingling. I think the question is where did Polly touch him?

*ducks*

Polly, Tell J & J "Hey" for me.

Isn't Jackie a hoot??

Woo hooo!! Tell us you have photos, Polly! Without photos, it's just not as much fun. Although it sounds like an amazing time was had by all!

More beach shots please!

Hey, doll, where did you go? I didn't see you after the first night...and I WAS looking.

Jeff Meyerson said...

Hey, J.D., you should have come to the DAPA-EM suite (blame Bill if he didn't tell you where it was). Polly was up there Thursday & Friday nights.

Great times.

And Polly was right - where did you get that harem?

JD Rhoades said...

*shake fist in the air* CRIDERRRRRRRRRRR!

And as for the harem...beats me, man. It's a gift.

Polly, it was very kind of you to make those remarks about Steve Stilwell. I know it does his aged, damaged heart good to hear such rare compliments. You are a charitable soul and have earned a place in heaven.

Of course you know we'll never hear the end of it from him, the pipsqueak.
