Mama's home!  Too many stories and so little time.  I want to do the trip recap properly so you're going to have to wait a bit for it.

In the mean time, please enjoy some bad quality photos taken with my camera phone.

"When Josie comes home, so good.  She's the pride of the neighborhood"

Wolfie Baby and Me.  I gave him the time of his life, but more on that latah. :)

Okay so I got alot of pics of Wolfie.  Sue me.

The One and Only Poker Grump. 
(don't ask what I did to make him smile like that)
Clicky on grump to read about my first time ever playing razz. :)

I got struck by Lightning.

A tiny bit of Joanne and Light's profile.

Skidoo and a Very hammered Very Josie.
(after I kicked his ass at razz)

The 2010 WPBT Champ, and his good luck charm

Watching Football.
Miami won AND The Pats won.  Wheee!

Ian.  I love this guy!
He plays the Very Josie under the name NumbBono, and sucked out on me badly.

We were having so much fun, it should've been illegal.

Astin (hottie) and CK (uber hottie)

The Wife modeling Poker From The Rail Tshirt.

Al Can't Hang, Dave McCarthy (u suck) and Full Tilt supplied ladies tshirts and men's tshirts at Sunday's Football partay.  As I was getting my girlie tshirt, The Wife holds up a tshirt (the one she's wearing in the photo) and tells me this is the biggest girlie tshirt they have. Fuuuuck.  The Wife is a slim, toned hottie and as you can see in the pic, the biggest one fits her nicely.  It's gonna be tight on me, but I grab one anyway.  By the way, the photo doesn't do her justice.  She's frigging gorgeous and not only that, but she's as beautiful inside as she is outside.  She couldn't have been nicer to a newbie like me.

Anyway, The tshirt is tight, but I decide WTF, I'll wear it on the plane ride home.  I get to the Vegas airport, take my shoes off and get in line with everyone else at the metal detector.  There's a guy security guard keeping us geese in line, but all of a sudden I get a tap on the shoulder.  A female security guard asks me to step out of line.  Fuuck.  She pulls me aside and tells me that everyone with implants has to go through the TSA security screening, not the metal detector. WTF!  The boobies are 44 years old, and they are the polar opposite of implants!  I tell her Noooooo I don't have implants!  She says, and I quote..."Are you sure?".

Ummm yeah, I'm quite sure, I tell her.  I'm very tempted to tell her it's the toooooo tight tshirt, but thankfully she believes me. I thought I was gonna get a pat down!

Okay not enough time to get into any Vegas stories but I cannot stress enough the kindness of all the bloggers I met for the first time.  Almost everyone went out of their way to include me and make me feel welcome.  And these are people I've never met, yet they couldn't have been friendlier.  It's a kindness I'll never forget.  I was travelling alone and a bit nervous but soooo many of you went out of your way for me. It brings tears to my eyes.  Thank you, Lightning, Wolfie, The Wife, Kat, Poker Grump, Miami Don, Bayne, CrAAKKer, Skidoo, Ian, CK and OhCaptain.

As Dorothy from The Wizard of Oz said, "Scarecrow Lightning, I think I'm going to miss you most of all."  Thanks for everything.  You're a good friend and an asshole. :)))))

I resent and deny any implication that I was "friendly." No! I am grumpy! Never forget that!

Josie said...

You are busted! Funny, smart, friendly and cute? YES
Grumpy? NO

However there is that issue about your 10-7 hand...grrrr More on that after work tomorrow.

Grange95 said...

It was great to meet you! You are even more hilarious in person. :-)

NumbBono said...

Hey Josie, Ian here, aka NumbBono. Not XMSatelliteradio or whoever you said I was.

Don't you remember nearly beating the shit out of me for some bad beat I laid on you a few weeks back? yes, I linked you up like you asked...appreciate a return link in exchange.

My trip report is in the works.

Nice meeting you, and see you next year.

NumbBono said...

One more thing, are you on Yahoo IM?

numb_bono is where you'll find me on there.

Yoyo (Poker Poison) said...

Glad I was able to meet you! I have a feeling I will be seeing more of you in the years to come.

Josie said...

Grange, Wish I had more time to chat with you!

NumbBono - Oh Shit! Yeah, I remember finding out you were NumbBono and giving you a few backhands - but I only do that to the people I like! BTW you suck at poker!!! And I'm totally gonna link you up! Got a few I have to add today. (btw your blog name is VERY appropriate! Grrrrr)

On Yahoo IM I am very.josie (can you believe veryjosie was already taken?)

NumbBono, one more thing, when you do that write up, please be kind! :)

Yoyo, The pleasure was all mine. Chicks rule! Nice blog btw - You will be added to mine!

Hammer Player a.k.a Hoyazo said...

It is really great reading this sort of post from a newbie to the WPBT gatherings. Really brings back some memories from my first way back when. Glad you had such a wonderful time.

Josie said...

Thanks Hoy. Wish you were there.

Memphis MOJO said...

Glad to hear you had a good time. Thx for the photos, can't wait for the full report.

The Wife said...

So nice to meet you - thanks for all the compliments! You were quite sparkly and beautiful yourself . . . glad that t-shirt worked out for you. No one ever accused me of having implants! *sigh*

Loved meeting you!

BWoP said...

It was nice to meet you in person. We were very lucky to be the recipients of Wolfie's kindness (he brought me krimpets)! TY TY TY for the compliment. I don't normally dress up, but Astin made me do it.

See you next year, if not sooner!

Katitude said...

I only wish I had more time to sit and talk to you! Too many people, so little time, alas.

It looks like I'll be hosting another Eh-Vegas, maybe in August. Vegas is fun but the smaller gatherings are better IMHO. Will keep you posted!

Josie said...

Kat, I wish I had more time to talk to you, Craakker and many others. Smaller gathering sounds good...Hmmmmm Vegas in August. :)
