Wow! I Got to Meet the REAL Washington Elite!

Hello, boys and girls! I have just returned from the American's United for the Separation of Church and State Blogger Meetup - and I must say that they have convinced me that until mankind is under the gentle simian yoke of Ape City, theocracy is probably not a good thing to be left in the hands of mere humans. (It's gotta be the word of the Lawgiver, or no deal!) Pictured above are some of my fellow bloggers that I was lucky enough to meet, PookeyShoehorn, DCup, FranIAm, Distributorcap, Alicia Morgan, and Tengrain.

Blue Gal was there too!

As promised, they served cake. (Tengrain is my witness that I only ate two slices.)

After the event, Tengrain brought out these funny little cigarettes...

And the next morning BAC bought us all breakfast. Thanks, BAC! (Picture above from left to right are BAC, Tengrain, FranIAm, DCup and Alicia Morgan, who gave me a copy of her swell book!)

We stayed at the delightful Hyatt on Capitol Hill.

My super-simian senses were on high alert for a moment, because many of the employees were dressed like the infamous Bond-villian, Ernst Starvos Blofeld...

But it was a really swell place to stay! Clean sheets, a nice restaurant and bar, and a nifty little gift shop. The television had a remote control and everything! (I want to give a special thank you to FranIAm, who explained to me that the little soaps were not candy.)

I was very lucky to meet all of these swell bloggers!

Dr. I enjoyed your pictures very much. How is it that you allowed Fran to take pictures of you in your other guise? I am envious. You look like you had so much fun.

I'm jealous.

Who is that man behind us in the last photo?????

Sorry I photoshopped a man-head onto you at my blog. Jay Simser was led into believing you are a mere man, when the rest of us know better.

You know me- filled with shenanigans and a real demon with the photoshop.

BTW, you failed to point out that I only told you that the soap wasn't candy after you had consumed several bars of it.

Oh Zaius... what will we do with you?

It warms my heart to see bloggers meeting up in person. Very cool!

Next year maybe Jesus will show up. (Our new president will be ushering in the second coming, or so go the rumors. I've already bought my rapture shoes. Christian Louboutin's if you must know-look as good from the bottom as the top!)

Funny -- I look like I've been enjoying Tengrain's "funny little cigarettes, but I don't even remember him bringing them out.

But then again, that makes sense ....

Looks like you folks (and apes) had a great time.

(Love the Pat Buchanon, btw)

I'm just glad the Real Dr. Zaius® is pictured here. I was worried for a moment!

So... Fran is the deceiver?

I don't know who to believe anymore! My faith in humanity and apehood is shaken to the core.

From now on I only listen to canines and arthropods.

I'm bummed that I missed you; I came to meet Fran, Dcup and Distributorcap on Saturday morning. Next time!

Well here's hoping our stars of left blogoshere can really save our country from the zombie wingtards. I must thank you all for doing such great work on our behalf.

Pat Buchanan is not united for seperation of church and state. I know that for a fact. I used to watch Crossfire. Plus his sister is batshiat crazy.

So that IS PBuch back there in the background! Interloper! Probably just tryin' to wheeze off Tengrain's funny little cigs.

Looks like fun was had by all. To all I say, "Blog on! Into the breach you must...whatever it is you must do!"

(And let me say, as an ex-Fundy you are doing important work.)

Oh, and I have to add that I think the pic of that poor anencephalic sitting in the chair (way in the back on that last pic) is in questionable taste.

Than again, maybe not.

Aw, Shit&Whiskers.... that all looks like a great time. You know, I woulda come, too, but I still haven't figgerd out how to get east of Lake Michigan.

those are wonderful photos. I wonder how I missed breakfast with you guys since I was down in the restaurant and I thought you sent over the banana mango smoothie.

Clean sheets right next to a nice bar?! That is swell. I must go there sometime. A day isn't complete until full use of photoshop is in play. Well done, sir.

Dr. Zaius it was absolutely delightful meeting you ... we simply must do this again next year!

I'm sorry, too, for photoshopping that handsome human head on you. You require no improvement.

I missed my opportunity to take one bite of your two slices. Dang it! Next year........

That's a funny looking cigarette for sure. Perhaps that's why you all look so happy?

 
At Wed Nov 12, 11:15:00 AM, Blogger Dr. Zaius said...

Jay Simser: Thanks, Mr. Simser! FranIAm used some kind of internet tubes-Photoshoppery trick to alter my features, Gosh darn it!

Dr. Monkerstein: I am sorry that you were not there. :o(

FranIAm: The man behind us is obviously some old Washington has-been. Did you really have to tell the world that I ate all of those little soaps? There kind of tasty, though...

Distributorcap: I don't know about that. The capitol build was shown in as sorry state of disrepair in the documentary "Logan's Run".

Some Guy: Yay! Thanks, Some Guy!

Germaine Gregarious: BAC said that you were invited next year! Be careful of the little soaps, though. I found out that they aren't candy!

Sue J: He said they were from the far off land of California. How quaint and curious!

Bob: Is that who that guy is? Thanks, Bob!

Randal Graves: Have no fear, Zaius is here! :o)

Übermilf: I know what you mean. My faith in humanity has been shaken ever since I heard about the Tooth Fairy. What a scam!

CDP: Were you there? OMG, I missed you! I wish that I had gotten a chance to meet you.

Liberality: Ha! We've got the zombie wingtards on the run! Thank you, Liberality.

Dean Wormer: I think that Pat Buchanan was just hoping to meet Blue Gal. ;o)

Dguzman: Aha! Is that what he was up to! What a mooch.

Spirula: I had a breach in my pants once. It was very embarrassing!

okjimm: Don't feel bad. I still can't figure out the pet food aisle in the grocery store!

Pidomon: Oh, shoot! It would have been great if you could have come!

Blue Gal: I did not see you at breakfast. I wish you could have joined us!

GETkristiLOVE: Well, the clean sheets were on the fourth floor and the bar was in the lobby, but somke of the bloggers seemed to be three sheets in the wind!

BAC: I can't wait! Thank you so much, BAC!

DCup: I can't wait to see you next year, DCup! It was swell meeting you!

Comrade Kevin: I think we were all just happy to meet each other! :o)
