We rocked Chicago for the Scentsation. It rained buckets the entire time, I guess the remnants of Ike — an inch an hour on occasion — with those umbrella-grabbing winds shoving us up and down Michigan Ave. We were a little worried Saturday morning that nobody would show and we’d just have to eat all Musette’s brownies ourselves, but midwesterners are not easily cowed by a little weather, and the turnout was excellent. Patty’s got some fun pics of us looking (variously) fab or sopping wet as we worked the itinerary, ending up with some fine food and mebbe a little too much to drink at the after-party. Special kudos to travelers like Tigs who came from Canada, and our Ohio contingent, esp. Emily whose car broke down in Indianapolis, making her trip just that much more exciting. We had a little drama getting out of Chicago on Sunday at the end of a busy convention week, I heard a bunch of flights got cancelled at O’Hare due to flooding, and so they all rolled over to Midway, and the scene there was pretty chaotic. Thank goodness for Midway and my reservation there on Southwest Airlines.
Tune in on Weds. for my report with the details (yes, as usual I took notes in my handy dandy notebook), including the sugar binges, some non-perfume retail therapy, getting thrown out of Hermes, and a surprise visit from a Veep Candidate! Yup, we have the photos to prove it. They will be up whenever Patty gets home, dries all her stuff out and uploads them, stay tuned. In the meantime it’s late, the kids are needing mommy for some snuggles, and then I’m going to unpack and go to bed, I am whipped. But I smell marvelous.
