Saturday, Jan 29th

Saturday, Jan 29 - YakYak Headquarters

This picture of Andrea and Gigi is the only decent (really cute) image I captured from the secret meeting place the night Andi and Carol arrived.  All others show some precarious angles of the walls and ceilings.  And a few others of which I can't make heads or tails.  Must've been that kick-ass vodka Gigi brought! 

What's the name of that stuff again?  Y-U-M!

Note to self:  When drinking Gigi's vodka, leave all picture-taking to DiAnne and Robbie.

P.S. to self: Get Veto Power on all pictures taken by DiAnne and Robbie.

Later Saturday, Jan 29 - Casa Del Mar Hotel Lobby Bar

Carol, still flying high from Dramamine.  Cutie-pie!
I tried a few self-photos with us.  Thinking about it now, I don't know why!  There were five other cameras in the room!  As we can see, Gigi caught us snapping these photos.

One-eyed Andi.  She joked about this picture being the "opposite" winking eye.  What a talent.  Seriously though -- adorable face right?  These are some of my favorite pictures of her.

Color me jealous!

Really, it looks like everyone is having so much fun. I went to Dianne's blog tooo and her photos as well leave the impression that when Freee and Robbie invite others into town for fun, they have the best kinda fun. Friends!

I raise the question. Do women do a better job of getting together and just letting their hair down and have a great time? I don't sense guys do this so very well. At least I don't remember those type of things.

Please don't make a mistake that I'm suggesting some genetic defect either way, its just an observation. Make a lick of sense? You tell me.

I'm glad you all had fun, you all got home safely and there are lots of photos and such too prove the good time was had by all.

Obviously a fun time!  Thanks for sharing the pics.  They made me smile.  You all look fabulous!

Tell Gordy, you have to have hair to let it down. ;-) (Love ya Gordy!)

Ahhhh....I'm all smiles over here. What a great way to start a Monday.

To hell with Veto power! Why you need it, I'll never know. Every pic (well except that one of your crotch) came out great. Bwahhahhahahhaaaa.

I am so glad you all had fun........ judi

Hee, I'm a grinning idiota here! Kinda like how I am there. Well, I guess that's just who I be. Uh-HUH!

I wish we could do it all over again. Wouldn't it be funny if we had a Groundhog kind of vacation? (You know: the movie Groundhog where Bill Murphy had to relive the day over and over again. Except I think we did it right the FIRST time! Of course, there will always be things we could improve on. So ... in that sense, I could totally see us having a Groundhog kind of vacay.)

Who needs Puxa-whatever-tony Phil when you've got US?

kristeenaelise said...

AWWWW y'all are adorable!!  Yep, I think we're all a bit envious - sounds like you had a blast (not that it wasn't well deserved).  Thanks for sharing!
=) kris

sistercdr said...

Oh man, y'all look like you're having so much fun.  I am so glad you were able to get together.

LOL!  great, great pictures.  Love them!  
but, now I am thinking....who's carol?   I must have missed something
along the way....
Vodka, yea...good stuff. :D

ANDREA - Ha! Groundhog kind of vacation -- funny too cuz it *was* Groundhog Day last week.  But I'd only like that for *some* of the the parts where I had lots of energy. :D

What's a "Puxa-whatever-tony Phil"?  Do I need another drink?

KRIS - All it takes is a thought put into action to make it happen. ;)

ROSEG - Yay for Cali!

SISTERCDR - Yeah, so much fun.  I'm glad we were able to make it happen too.

BARBIE - Green is a lovely color. :P  Are you sick of the song yet?  Sometimes I am.  Ha!

SHARKY - Oh lovey...Carol is Andrea's good friend (and now my good friend).  They planned their trip to "Paradise" in SD and I made them come to LA early.  It was perfect!  :)

freeepeace said...

GORDY - Ha! Leave it to Robbie to make such a good point. :P  I believe it's in us all.  Guys connect on different levels, depending on who they are...just like women.  But yeah, we're more likely to giggle in our jammies till dawn.  Probably why we live longer.  Who knows?

KIMMIE - A smile is contagious. :)

ROBBIE - Oh right, the crotch picture.  Geez.  Can't forget that candid tongue picture from Paco's either.  But it's pics like the one's posted in Andi's journal that prompt me to reestablish Veto Power. lol

"What's a "Puxa-whatever-tony Phil"?  Do I need another drink?"

Puxatony (not spelled right) is the GROUNDHOG who either sees his shadow or not. Heh, heh, heh.

Yeah, you probably need another drink. For medicinal purposes, no?

diannevan said...

That top picture of Andrea (and Gigi) is one of the best of Andrea.  It's taken just mere seconds before the first sip of martini turned her into a one-eyed wonder!

slowmotionlife said...

Great photos!  Cute smiles all around.  It's amazing to me [and yet, not too surprising] that you were all so comfortable with each other right off the bat.  It says something about the power of blogging and daily reading, I think.  Not to mention the emails, etc.  LOL  Reading on...
