What can I say?


There's nothing much to say after the long weekend event at my place. Casa Regina overflowed with food, booze (mainly of the chocolate variety) and lots of writers. Brenna Zinn, Allie Standifer, Nicole Austin and Desiree Holt invaded my space and I wouldn't have had it any other way. Truly...in the midst of a dry west Texas heat wave, it was like a breath of good stuff that was better than I can say. My daughter, who joined the fun and was given the moniker 'Half Baked', hung out with us 24/7 and fit right into the crazy group. Later she told me it was like being a member of the coolest sorority EVER. I know it was an unforgettable experience for her.

Every morning my kitchen table was littered with laptops and every evening one of my backyard patio tables was crowded with various glasses...all half empty as we enjoyed Dr. Seuss Porn Hour. I honestly can't say much about that except that it is an event narrated by the insanely funny Allie Standifer. Every evening we'd get into our jammies, pour drinks and head outside. Once tears were rolling and we were about to fall out of our chairs, Desiree (who loved her 'whipped cream' vodka) took Tipsy Pics. We have threatened death if these ever see the light of day. Sometimes Nic Austin (who is one cool customer) would relieve Allie of Porn Hour duties and we'd start rolling in our chairs AGAIN. Slyly hysterical, Nic would take up the mantle until tears were pouring and we gasped for breath. Brenna Zinn? Who could ever imagine such an altogether classy lady could come up with such RANDOM stuff that had us snorting alcohol through our noses? Brenna and I danced to old 80's music in my kitchen floor and we all ate enough food to sink a battleship. Yes, sighhhh, the diets have started all around.

In the end, as I waved goodbye...a little teary-eyed about it all, I knew we'd do this again. How could you ever 'take a pass' on this much fun! So until next time, I'll keep the chocolate vodka and choco wine chilling in anticipation.

It was a total blast, Amber!

Regina Carlysle said...

It was, Harlie. The weekend went by in a fog induced by laughter and alcohol.

That was so much fun! I miss the porn hour readings and cant wait to party with y'all at RomantiCon. You should bring half-baked along! Your DH was so great for not only putting up with the "Coven" invasion but also joining in some of the insanity.

Allie Standifer said...

I plead the 5th to ....everything. Mostly because there's a lot I don't remember or I'm sure about. I do know 'Half-Baked' is amazing. She's invited to all our 'coven' gatherings. Regina's DH nicknamed us the coven before he even met us. Weird, huh?
Don't worry Regina, since I'm still hanging out with the fab Desiree Holt, we'll open a bottle or two of whipped vodka and chocolate vodka in your honor! Forgive us if we start drunk texting :)
Thanks for an amazing time and for being such a gracious hostess. I say we invade Brenna' house next!!

Sounds like you had a lot of fun.

You ladies sure know how to have fun! Hope you saved up a little to share with us at RomantiCon. Plus after hearing about the choco wine over the past month or so I just had to buy some. I am saving it for a little mother-daughter taste test on Friday. There should be plenty of this stuff at RomantiCon. Elece was talking about ordering a case of it for then.

Alcohol out the nostrils. Ouch! Sounds like you guys had one helluva good time. If only I could've been a fly on the wall. Hehe! It would be great fun if your daughter came to Romanticon to join the fun. I can't wait!!! And yes, without knowing exactly how it's getting there, I'm so bringing choco-yumminess! #:0)))

Nope. No pics. Since Des was 'drunk pic taking' I'm sure they aren't suitable for viewing by the public! lol

Regina Carlysle said...

He really WAS a good sport about the whole thing. He says 'the coven' can come back anytime. Still talking to Half Baked about coming. We'll see what she has going on once school starts back up. Still thinking about that.

Regina Carlysle said...

Hey Allie...I'm all for invading Brenna's house. Know Half Baked would be up for it too. Will be watching for the drunk texting.

Regina Carlysle said...

We sure did, Marie Rose! A total blast.

Regina Carlysle said...

Margie, can't wait to meet you at Romanticon. Will definitely sample the choco vine.

Regina Carlysle said...

Elece honey, we are going to have sooooo much fun!@

Regina Carlysle said...

Dragon Lady...we will try to keep the stories coming. We get together at least every four months so something is ALWAYS going on.

Eileen said...

Sounds like you guys had a blast. Dr. Seuss porn hour? would have loved to have been a fly on the fly for that one!

Regina Carlysle said...

Wish everyone could have been a fly on the wall. We laughed soooo hard.
