Tiaras and Trojans

This weekend was Tiara Happy Hour VI. Most of the regular crew was there (Sarah, Emily, Christine, Natalie, Robin, and Katie plus Boy and Girl to name the majority), but we were treated to a very special surprise guest - Don!

No one was expecting him, so when this tall guy walks up to all of us and just kind of stands there, Emily gets up in his face and demands, "Who are you? Why are you here?" Sarah (AKA The Birthday Girl) totally recognized him, though, and he was readily accepted into our little group, especially when he proved himself man enough to not only wear a tiara, but a Princess Fiona ogre tiara at that. What a man! You can see pictures of the night here and here.

Tiara was, of course, great fun with lots of drinks consumed, boobies grabbed, and kisses exchanged (Have we ever had a Tiara where that doesn't happen?). Emily, though, had a prior commitment, so Don and I hopped into his rental car and followed her and Christine over to another bar where Don kicked my ass at pool, but I think that the games should have been handicapped since I was drinking and he wasn't.

Eventually we ended up back at Emily's where I passed out on the couch. I must admit that part was a little blurry at least until I woke up and saw Christine on the other couch and I figured out where I was. (Btw, thanks again, Emily; you are a most gracious hostess.) I woke up the next morning, ran home, took a shower and a quick nap, and headed back downtown to meet my friend Mandy for another one of those speeddating things.

The rest of the weekend was spent screwing around with my computer. About a week ago I was going through all my old comments to clear out some comment spam and I accidentally clicked on one of the links in the URL. The next thing I know, I've got a trojan installed and despite both mine and my mother's best efforts, we haven't been able to get rid of it. We spent all weekend tracking processes and error messages only to somehow mess up my IE so that you can't right click on anything (I do the majority of my browsing this way, so I am extremely not happy about that).

Finally, this morning I decided that I was tired of messing around with it and I am now using Firefox to do my surfing. It's so similar to IE (with the exception of some CSS not rendering correctly) that I may just stick with it and give tab browsing a go.

I hope everyone else had has much fun as I did this weekend. Like I always say, being a blogger in H-Town is the best.

I hate it when I miss a happy hour! It seems like something big always happens when I'm not there. ;)

Pssst... Don, I told you before... she didn't have a camera there! (Unless she was snapping with the camera phone, which I might have missed.)

Or am I just crazy? Did you have a camera there? I thought I remembered you saying that you didn't bring it.
