Blogger Happy Hour

Well, the Blogger Happy Hour was good. I don’t think as many people showed up as usual because it was freezing out, but all in all it turned out okay.

It turns out that I suck at raffles, but the fundraising went okay. The 50/50 raffle was won by some non-bloggers at a table who bought some tickets. In a way, it’s good that a non-blogger won, because if the winner had been a blogger with nice breasts that I was ogling, then it would look suspicious. Anyway, the winner was nice enough to donate half his winnings back to the charity. So in the end we raised $160. I thought we would raise more, so what I’ve decided to do is to match the donations dollar-for-dollar out of my own pocket and make it $320.

I won’t list the other bloggers who were there, because I don’t remember most of them. Some interesting highlights did include KassyK’s birthday and Velvet telling me (several times) that my sweater looks gay. In my sweater’s defense, I will say this. I don’t know the sexual orientation of the sweater. I have a don’t ask, don’t tell policy when it comes to sweaters. I bought the sweater believing that it was straight (european, but still straight), but I never bothered to ask it what it’s preferences are. I think there are some things that you just shouldn’t ask a knitted garment. I think the sweater and I are friends and I really don’t care what it does on its own time (even if it goes to eurotrash clubs like Ozio, Sexto Senso, and that bullshit Fly Lounge in DC).

But no matter what the sweater’s orientation, for the record, I am straight. I’m about as metrosexual as you can get, but still on the correct side of the line.

I don't have any pics of the sweater, but I think one might exist from the Happy Hour, so if we can find a pic, I'll post it on here and we can play a game of Gay or European, with you people voting.

Great to see you last night--I appreciate everything you did for Manna (and I thought it was funny that a non-blogger ended up winning)! No real thoughts on the sweater--I'd have to inquire as to its gym membership to really get a sense. :-)

Gay. Liberace, Elton John, face in the pillow, I just got back from JR's on 17th, does anyone have any crystal, Rock Hudson kind of gay.

ok, we'll just say that your sweater is a European metrosexual. To your credit- there are very few straight men who can pull off that sweater as well as you did.

I liked the sweater...which means it must be very, very gay.

I'll bet you are relieved that none of the female bloggers showed up wearing the same thing. I hate it when that happens.

The Playaz also chipped in to the Manna cause, though we did not contribute to the raffle as we did not want any of you winning our money.
