..riding the glass elevators with a bunch of crazy drunks any time day or night
I enjoyed standing outside one of the hosting room ( I think it was Ran's)and pelting the elevator with ice from my drinks to get everyone's attention so I could let them know the drink I was enjoying was so awesome! Actually, no one ever knew cuz you all were so plastered. I guess you had already visited THAT room!
Seriously though...this was our 1st Oasis and I was VERY impressed with the huge amount of forethought that went into the planning (think welcome bags-wow!).
It was so great to meet everyone face to face; kinda like meeting famous people, for me! And EVERYONE was so nice and fun!! Cult of the Eye's room was great with a view of the golf course. Never did get a pull from that hookah, but Amy (I think- on Thurs eve) served us a fab Blue Hawaiian!! The guys were all so nice to my hubby and he really enjoyed himself. I think he was a little wary at first, what with those fezzes and all. Now he says they're not so "hinky". He trusts them (for an ex-Marine to admit that is a real coo!)
The music was... fabulous-stupendous-awesome-life changing!!! I was surprised when the Sand Devils first started, cuz my feet took me to the stage and my elbows poked and pushed to get my ears to the very front (sorry if I gouged anyone!). I had to have more! And then Ape comes on and Al starts carving and I was just losing my ever lovin mind! A lot of girls kept telling me how hot and exotic and unbelievably sexy the show was gonna be and I was thinking, "OK, great, we'll see."
Um. Yeah!!! What a way to start the weekend! I'm a sold out fan now!! Booking my tix and rezzies right now for any and all future events!
The security guys breaking up the room parties were actually kinda fun to kid with. They took it with good nature. I don't think they expected what they got from us! Now they know and Oasis will be billed up front and larger than all else on their board! (Not in tiny letters at the bottom, even below the Small Gift Convention!)
I think we all did quite well at not totally wrecking that wedding! We should be proud we can hold our liqueur-y tongues when it comes down to it!
Thanks to SoccerTiki and WooHoo for the incredible room decor...you deserved to win best room!
And thanks to SoccerTiki for sitting with me and the Mr up on the balcony at night to "make announcements" to all loiterers down in the pool/garden area!! "Attention! Attention! All Hanalei Guests present in pool area! Lift your shirt above your head now! Failure to comply will result in a hefty room fee!" I think we had one compliant guest. And he was a dude.
Thanks also to SoccerTiki, RugbyMatt, and Bill for sharing rezz w/ me for dinner. And to Bill for driving us all back from Bali Hai in your smokin mini van.
And to TikiBlog for sharing your baby with me (lil white Chihuahua), as I was going through puppy withdrawals! TOO CUTE!!
Really, thanks to everyone I set my eyes on cuz you all made the event!
But a very special thanks goes to...PURPLE TUBE TOP!! The chick from San Diego's Mardi Gras Convention Personnel that crashed WooHoo's and SoccerTiki's room crawl the first night! What the heck was that all about!?! So now all us girls can pounder the mystery of why she has to pee every 20 minutes during sessions! We were all polite and nice to her, but you could hear a flea fart after she asked us ALL for advice on that!!
This was the best damn party we EVER been to!!
(Thanks to ? for the extension cord for our smokin tiki on the balcony...I can't rememer your name!! You had the room directly below us...Sorry I can't remember...anything much. all kinda hazy...)
