Here are my five favorite photos from the happy hour (you can view all the photos here). Not by coincidence, I’m in all of them.

Left to right: Luke, Senator, Me.

Look at the masculine way I’m holding that drink.

L to R: Random person, Senator, Random person, V, Me.

When this picture was taken I guess I thought it would be a good idea to protect my crotch, as you can see from the placement of my hands.

This photo was taken the instant Mike G and I met. You can see on our faces what we really think about each other.

This guest was feeling my edgy vibe (thanks to the soul patch) even though I kept running out of things to say. It all ended when she accused me of lying after I brought in Spaniard to discuss his recent break-up (him and his girlfriend really did split a few hours before the happy hour). Surprisingly, there are some girls who are resistant to my charm.

L to R: Eugenius, Me, Spaniard, Insomnia

The Haters!!! Sorry Insomnia, I know this is a bad picture of you, but I don’t look right in our other group photo.

While many DC blogs were busy patting each other on the back Friday, the most anti-social DC blogger of them all, the Why I Hate DC guy, was in John Kelly’s Friday Post column.


Only quotes I remember:

V: “You’re taller than I thought.”
Luke: “Your face is getting shiny.”

Most awkward moment:

A lady friend of mine trying to get a rise out of The Senator by making fun of his profession. He handled it well.

Most unawkward moment:

Meeting Mike Grass from DCist. He was standing next to me for at least 10 minutes until Kelly came and told me who he was. I introduced myself and we ended up talking for a while… about blogs.

I had a chance to meet the CPMC guys, a few readers (including CatCiao, a suspected hater), and many girls who had trouble admitting that they are DC blog groupies. I also met the girls behind The Butterfly Network, and talked to them for a full 45 seconds.

Today the Washington Post Express published an article focusing on Kelly with a big CPMC mention. This site gets an indirect mention.

Other HHH recaps:

  1. The Senator

    I hate you all. KIDDING.

    Did you have to run with that one?

    For the record:

    “Circle V” was grabbing my old-school, lame-O, bulky digital camera…in my pocket. She tried to grab other things, but I disallowed it.

    Great party, DCB, Som, Spaniard, etc…

  3. Love Awkward Moments

    Ohh..talk more about that awkward moment with your friend and The Senator. What did s/he say? How did The Senator handle it?

  4. Natty G

    The blond/brunette guest in the one picture is smoking…you should have closed the deal, or at least gotten the digits.

    V likes to observe people. I have a feeling she picks up on peoples personalities pretty quickly.

    Guest: “Whats CPMC about?”
    Senator: ” *cpmc mission statement*… we do this etc etc etc we don’t talk a lot of shit.. ”
    Guest: “Well you’re a *** you talk a lot of shit all the time”


    I forgot his response but at the time i remember it being decent.

  8. piece de resistance

    Thanks, Bachelor, for posting the worst picture of me from the 50 that were taken. But I guess it did convey the emotion drawn out in the caption.
    My apologies (and condolences) to The Spaniard for not believing the story of his misfortune.
    But I can’t quell my skepticism when I’ve heard that line before…
