I enjoyed meeting each and every OLSer!!! I now have a new BFF - What up KB!!! represent!!! and a new BBFF (Boy Best Friend Forever) Shout out to Tametaz (Shhh don't tell KB ).

Everyone was so nice and so much fun to hang out with. Geminilion and I hit the streets of Motown and had way too much fun! The Supremes aint got nothin on us girl

Mad props to all the cool OLSers that I met this weekend!!! Looking forward to seeing everyone in San Antonio next year.

And remember...look for the key that doesn't look like any other key

Lots o' virginity and innocence lost in Dearborn last week, fer sure!

Motownmama - "look for the key that doesn't look like any other key" - thats the only SECRET I need, baby! Words to live by!

Well... I must say that I made several friends while conventioning, including Motownmama herself!

My highlights outside of the convention included a dinner with KB at Big Fish... There is a long story including a drunk woman, her greasy pants, her coward of husband, her dead mother, her sister who is unable to follow directions, a stunned waitstaff and us left virtually speechless (a first for both of us, fer sure) until later... An in-joke is born!

Then there was an impromptu roadtrip with Pamcakes and TinyMoMo to Bronner's Christmas House (the world's largest Christmas store and the kitchyest place outside of Vegas) and Frankenmuth (a little Bavarian town in the middle of BFE) for fudge fried chicken... er fried chicken and fudge... We ended up at Bavarian Inn having a family style FIVE meat dinner - shame on you TinyMoMo, shame on you! LOL! After getting all schnitzeled up, we hit the streets in search of Frankenmuth's famous FUDGE and ended up shopping before we finally packed up our fudge and headed out! lol! On the ride there and back, we became instant friends and shared our deepest, darkest secrets... Grab the sanitizer and the cotton in the dark place ladies!!! ROFLMAO!

Tom-2 and I had a nice dinner at Buddy's Pizza and on the last day, with Kiss and Panda where we discussed how our impressions of peeps we met were the same as in person. It was a great conversation and way to top off the convention...

The last, but certainly not least, trip was to the Henry Ford Museum and the Ford Plant to watch Ford F-150 pickup trucks built with Kiss and TinyMoMo! Kiss hit the HFM to see the "Rock Stars' Cars and Guitars" exhibit which included the Kiss car and a collection of KISS guitars! He took over a hundred pix, so the gallery should be interesting... While he drooled and worshipped at the tires of the KISS car. MoMo and I had a half hour to kill before the tour bus for the Ford Rouge Factory Tour left so we grabbed some baked mac & cheese (which sucked on so many levels) in the museum restaraunt and then jumped on the bus, hit the factory and did the plant tour. It was awesome and MoMo shook visibly at each section of the manufacturing line! The whole thing was extremely cool and at one point, the body of an F-150 moved slowly and directly right over our heads. Killer! We laughed our asses off the entire time!

The night at the bar/restaraunt was off-the-hook (see convention pix thread)...

Kiss and I had our own adventure (read: me driving around in circles for the umteenth time during the convention) and "getting to know you" conversation on the way to the Greyhound station... There is a story including assanine road planning in the City of Detroit, A nice guy, a totally wasted drunk streetperson, a four-pack of Tom-2's vitamin water and a nice lady - all tied into getting him to the station on time, but that's about all u need to know on that one! LOL!

Sadly, with all of the odd timing, and as much as we wanted to, Tom, Jake and I were unable to host any of our friends at our house... But Tom and Jake understood...

Whether in the hotel rooms, lobby, convention hall, elevators, cars, buses, restaraunts we all laughed from morning until night and it far exceeded ANY expectations I had... Props to my peeps for making the convention something to remember...

OMG I am SOOO back on my macrobiotic diet. My guts were KILLING me after I got home!
And yes, nothing like heavy manufacturing to get me all misty.........
And then we had to get "special treatment" because we took the factory section of the tour first.
This girl was like our new BFF

I went to the Greektown casino and came back a whole $12.75 richer--I only put $5 in the slots. I'm not much of a risk taker when it comes to gambling my money away. Maybe someone else has a more exciting story to tell.
