The start to my Thursday was unfortunate, to say the least. Having stayed up until 5:00 AM (because stupid), I got up at 6:00 AM and went to catch the bus so I could get to work early. For some reason SEPTA adjusted the bus route for the day but did not post any signs. I stood outside for 30 minutes before I finally caught a bus, and arrived to the office too late to do anything except set my things down and run to meet contractors coming in with a shipment of furtniture. I spent the day labeling furniture for different destinations and handing out submasters and frieght elevator keys. Meanwhile, TeamSpeak was clearing out of everyone but the Australians and I was unable to snag a cup of coffee. Rough start.
Due to the contractors taking longer than anticipated, I missed two trains to the airport and had to grab a taxi an hour before my plane departure so I could get there in time. When I got there my plane was boarding, and I was soon seated-- only to find out that my plane had engine troubles and could not fly. Disgruntled passengers filed back out and across the terminal to another gate, where we were told a different plane would arrive to take us to our destination. Here we waited for about 30 minutes before being told to go back to our old plane because they were going to attempt to fix the engine (this is not an encouraging thing to hear about the plane you will entrusting your life with shortly). After a little while longer they let us back on the plane; suffice to say, the engine held up, but I couldn't tell you anything about the flight because I was asleep before we even taxied onto the runway and I did not wake up until Indianapolis.
Sleiphner was waiting in the Indianapolis airport for me, so we could grab a cab over to the hotel. He also had coffee. This may or may not have been a mistake, depending on who you talk to. I was quite pleased and very hyper.
On the way to the hotel, I called Stank Cobra and AndromedaCat and we all decided we were very hungry and needed to eat dinner. At this point it was around 9 PM. The original plan was to meet at the Ramada (where myself, Sleiphner, and most of the people who had not arrived yet were staying) and eat at the Damon's that was attached. Unfortunately Damon's closes at 10 PM on Thursday nights, and Stank Cobra and AndromedaCat arrived about 15 minutes too late. After a quick discussion, we all agreed upon the Denny's located a mile down the road and set out in AndromedaCat's car.
At Denny's, AndromedaCat and I decided to split a cheeseburger and Reese's Peanutbutter Cup Pancakes (I am allergic to peanuts but DON'T CARE IT WAS DELICIOUS). Our waitress's name was Pooh, and StankCobra and Sleiphner found every opportunity to use it, giggling like 5 year olds. We had a fun time talking, and by the time we were finished with our food it was almost midnight and we decided to order coffee; Yordlebob and Maday were almost there and we wanted to stay up and hang out with them. Poor AndromedaCat had the misfortune to spill her entire cup of coffee on the second sip.
After some sexy times in the Ladies Room-- AndromedaCat confirmed that I got her naked faster than anyone ever has-- we packed up the car and went back to the hotel to wait for Yordlebob and Maday to arrive. However, they were taking forever and I had promised to paint Andromeda's nails, so we soon loaded up the car again to go to CVS. Just as we pulled out of the parking lot, a car with madcastgaming.com pulled into the lot. Sleiphner had put both names on the room though, so we continued on to CVS to buy our nail polish.
When we returned, Maday was sprawled out in the back corner chair, silently surveying the room, and Yordlebob was standing around waiting for us. Yordlebob confirmed that there was no music during the car ride (though thankfully they stopped for dinner with Munsa, or else the unending silence might have broken him). AndromedaCat and I spent about half of our time locked in restroom whispering about things and painting nails. During this time I believe the men talked about bacon and cheese, but I can't confirm. Meanwhile, Maday continued to silently watch from his chair.
Around 2 AM we began piling onto the bed (this room had one king sized bed), realizing that it could actually hold quite a lot of bodies. Maday did not want to leave his chair, so we spent a solid 30 minutes heckling and badgering him into joining us. Once he did, he was unceremoniously assalted from behind by Stank Cobra and received several unwanted kisses. Tongue almost happened but AndromedaCat did not want to follow that up, so Stank Cobra focused his efforts further... south.
Eventually Maday was too hot and bothered uncomfortable to continue, so he went and got his airmattress and started getting ready for bed. Stank Cobra and AndromedaCat left for their hotel, and we promised to meet up for shenanigans in the morning.
