Bloggers have more fun

Barb and I finally got to meet the legendary BillT, one of the inmates of Castle Argghhh! Folks, everything you heard is true. He's even funnier in real life, because when he tells his TINS you get to see the patented Evil Grin(tm). Sometimes he just chuckles to himself when he thinks of something particularly sneaky and devious. Alas, the scruples were not allowed to join us. The restaurant muttered something about their insurance policy. We were also not granted the presence of the 27" zipper, since he's now disguised as a civilian.

We ingested booze and fine food. Bill appears to have some tapeworm in his family tree, because he ravaged the menu *in a manner reminiscent of Ghengis Khan* and still had room for dessert. We heard tales of long-range potato guns, of the impact-absorbing qualities of Army fuel truck drivers, of fire-extinguishers flinging themselves out of helicopters to attack innocent tanks below, the curious (and alleged) thinking processes of the upper echelons, and the effect of chocolate-covered espresso beans on small children. Among others. I stayed up MUCH later than I usually do and now have to prop my eyelids open, but I wouldn't have missed it for the world. In fact, I want to do it again!

You sure it was Bill? There's no mention of being hit on, and we *all* know how Aviators are...

Between the Evil Grin(tm) and the recognizable size 13's (or size 12's depending on weather) there is no question we met the one 'n' only Bill! We had a great time enjoying his electric personality ... *grin*

It's just a shame he is actually busy while he's here, so we probably won't get another target op on this trip, darnit.

(John - we don't hafta to tell Every Little Detail, ya know!)

Hmmpf--"ravaging the menu"...

A foul canard. The document was returned to the gin mill--uhhhhhh--restaurant employee in pristine condition.

However, if you'd just spent nine hours on a 757 with no sustenance other than a four-pack of Oreos, and followed that up with a four-hour block of attempting to salvage something useful from a brigade's-worth of "No, we don't wanna do it that way, we're gonna do it this way--and, by the way, we have no idea how we can make this way work...", well, you'd be in need of a wee bit of nourishment, too.

I accept full responsibility for the kitchen running out of coffee, though...

Ummmm, sorry for hitting on you. Don't tell John.

Heh.
