Is anyone else wondering who Aislinn is going to go home with this time? Will? Anyone?

Posted by D.P. | April 2, 2008 12:19 PM

Really, I hadn't given it a second thought.

And I don't suppose this mysterious "VIP Room" has access to snackages, does it?

We really need to do something about that - heavy drinking on an empty stomach has become something of a problem in my old age. Guess I'll just have to grab-and-gulp and show up a bit late.

@1: maybe you should stop being an asshole, and stay home that night.

Posted by greg p | April 2, 2008 12:31 PM

VIP Room? Swanky!

Posted by Hernandez | April 2, 2008 12:49 PM

#1, the same person she went home with last time. That would be me. Her boyfriend.

Thanks for your concern, though. See you there?

(This has been another edition of simple answers to stupid asshole questions)

Scandal! SCANDAL!!

Posted by NapoleonXIV | April 2, 2008 1:06 PM

Exactly. Which is @5. Not that it's your business, @1.

The best of both worlds, Moe's but we have our own room ...

"VIP Room"? Or.... DUNGEON?

Hey, daddy-o. I don't wanna go. Down to the basement....

Posted by Fnarf | April 2, 2008 1:13 PM

Lame. Aislinn, going home with your own boyfriend is not exciting. Can you try for someone super-hot or super-gross this time? Awesomethx.

Posted by leek | April 2, 2008 1:14 PM

@9: Trust me, going home with my own boyfriend is VERY exciting.

Posted by Aislinn | April 2, 2008 1:21 PM

April 10 Slog-Happy and Key Party!

Posted by NapoleonXIV | April 2, 2008 1:22 PM

I MEANT, not exciting for US. Think about your fellow Sloggers!

Posted by leek | April 2, 2008 1:24 PM

You people make me sick. First the Feathercaust in Ballard and the market. Then the graffitigeddon in Cal Anderson. And now this.. this... boyfriendgate. Jesus.

...Ooh! Does that say VIP Room? Why yes, don't mind if I do. Will there be a bull dog?

Posted by elenchos | April 2, 2008 1:26 PM

Finally putting the VIP room to good use. One Pot is something that could be cool. Could.

Slog incest is awesome. I highly recommend it. (At least once.)

Since I don't live in Seattle anymore, I am rather interested in how these events turn out. Do Will and Fnarf take it outside and bloody each other? Do a whole bunch of other feuding pairs whose nicknames I can't remember because they aren't as smart or interesting get all fisticuffy too? Or is it all drunken tears of forgiveness and 'I love you (wo)man'? Does Erica stand on a table in a Hilliary shirt while actual pigs root around underfoot oinking up at her? Please, somebody, come on here afterward and describe these mystery people, give their real names, and most importantly, say if any of them are hot.

@15, Most of us have lives and just Slog while at work. I have better things to do with my afternoons than deal with a bunch of hipster "know-it-all's" who really don't know shit.

Posted by Andrew | April 2, 2008 1:41 PM


Mr. Poe looks like a young, insouciant version of your old campaign manager.

Posted by NapoleonXIV | April 2, 2008 1:45 PM

Um, unless I was hallucinating, I seem to remember Sven going through a very exhaustive breakdown of what everyone looks like after the last happy hour.

Posted by Fifty-Two-Eighty | April 2, 2008 1:50 PM

Dear Grant, let me answer your questions, in order:
1)no, sadly.
2)no, not on site. There is some speculation that some Sloggers end up at Basic Plumbing across the street to deal with any anger or pent up emotions.
3)no, thank god
4)no, the Slog events are always coincedentally scheduled for the same nights that ECB has her Swing Dancing class.
5)we are VERY, VERY a Dante-esque sort of way.

and hung.

hugely, obscenely, priapically, HUNG.

somewhere between Johnny Stompanato and Porfirio Rubirosa.

Posted by michael strangeways | April 2, 2008 2:01 PM

Awesome. I'm between trade shows for this one. Although I am a bit dismayed that I missed the one that featured mojitos, my favorite drink since I was 17.

Posted by Abby | April 2, 2008 2:01 PM

I look like a young, ignorant, idiotic little bitch.

Posted by Mr. Poe | April 2, 2008 2:01 PM

You forgot "adorable", Poe. Totally adorable. Like a puppy. The kind that bite.

Posted by Abby | April 2, 2008 2:02 PM

And you can tell Schmader that my Jew will be attending the next Slog Happy.

Posted by Mr. Poe | April 2, 2008 2:03 PM

@13 - no, a pit bull. Unless we can get Amy Kate to bring her dog (not a pit bull).

Posted by Will in Seattle | April 2, 2008 2:03 PM

Adorable?! Gurl, you crazy! I have at least 20 years to go before I could possibly be adorable.

Posted by Mr. Poe | April 2, 2008 2:04 PM

Will you be crotchety too, in addition to adorable? I'm expecting grumbling and rock-throwing and fist-shaking.

Posted by Abby | April 2, 2008 2:08 PM

damn! i liked havana. i was hoping for a cha-cha contest this time. mr. poe v. napoleon xiv, tsm v. hernandez. and poe, honey, you are not idiotic.

Posted by scary tyler moore | April 2, 2008 2:09 PM

I'd kick tsm's ass at a cha-cha contest. Provided it wasn't Cuban-style cha-cha.

Posted by Hernandez | April 2, 2008 2:17 PM

Yes, because showing up to an internet meet-up once a month is indicative of someone not having a life.

If you show up, Andrew, you will find that:

a) There are no hipsters to be found
b) We know stuff

Posted by w7ngman | April 2, 2008 2:19 PM

Yeah! And most of us make more money than you, Andrew.

Posted by Mr. Poe | April 2, 2008 2:22 PM

Knowledge is power!

Posted by Abby | April 2, 2008 2:26 PM

I cheat at cha-cha.

I'm not sure I'll be making it--will be just back from vacation and, with any luck, nursing a second degree suntan.

Posted by NapoleonXIV | April 2, 2008 2:32 PM

I'll probably show up, if only to make scowly faces at Will In Seattle.

Posted by NaFun | April 2, 2008 2:53 PM


I look exactly like all of my press photoes.


I believe, by virtue of my age relative to most other Sloggers, that I have rightful claim to the crotchety, rock-throwing fist-shaking thing.

Because we can't ALL be young, insouciant and adorable, like Mr. Poe.

Posted by COMTE | April 2, 2008 3:02 PM

@19 Why is it that every one of your posts seems to be covered in grease and pubes?
Don't you have some job to get fired from again?

Posted by Pat | April 2, 2008 3:31 PM



that hurt. me. so. much.

you are hysterical!

i love having a bitter foe.

rock on.

Posted by michael strangeways | April 2, 2008 3:49 PM

Looking forward to seeing you snarky folks in an analog environment again.

Posted by Original Andrew | April 2, 2008 5:35 PM

Maybe I'll be there. I'm not as sick as I was for the last one. And with luck, work won't be kicking my ass as much next week.

Confidential to Kid Icarus: what I probably need to do is kidnap somebody, then disappear for six years...

Posted by Greg | April 2, 2008 10:00 PM

Hey everybody. Just got back last night from MN spending time with my sick Mom. She's hanging in there. Then I promptly lowsided my XR650L this morning. So if my knees work by the 10th, I'll be there...

And my "who would play them in the movie" comments were:

Amy Kate - Diablo Cody
ECB - Janeane Garofalo, later modified to Maggie Gyllenhaal
annie - Naomi Watts
Gillian Anderson - Jena Malone
Will in Seattle - Lewis Black
elenchos - Joel Coen, which he protested
Rhett Oracle - Will Durst
Original Monique - Marion Cotillard
Mr. Poe - could only be played by Mr. Poe

Posted by Big Sven | April 3, 2008 1:16 AM

Damn skippy!

Posted by Mr. Poe | April 3, 2008 7:45 AM

@24: Wasn't it actually an American Bulldog?

Posted by Jessica | April 3, 2008 8:12 AM

@38 - "I thought what I'd do was, I'd pretend I was one of those deaf-mutes. That way I wouldn't have to have any goddam stupid useless conversations with anybody. If anybody wanted to tell me something they'd have to write it on a piece of paper and shove it over to me. They'd get bored as hell doing that after a while, and then I'd be through with having conversations for the rest of my life."
