What is your tail/tale today?
I'm so behind in uploading photos since Netroots Nation began.
I've completed the Cheers & Jeers Dinner diary. We've posted the American Indian Caucus diary. So I'm going to have to do little snippets here and there of the rest of my stories. I hope you don't mind.
There's much more to come.
Today, I want to feature one of the funniest moments at NN13 for me. Here is the photo I'm talking about. Then I'm going to list the hilarious events that led up to this hilarious pic.
side pocket has garnered a reputation. It all began with Horsefeather's diary from NN12, Tails of NN12 (with Andy the cat) and then the on-going story that our community contributes to. Horsefeathers is owned by a cat named Andy. If you click on the diary above you will see that Andy stands on his own and needs no one else to exist. He's completely self-sufficient and very resourceful. In the diary above Andy makes his way to NN12. His famous tail then conducts an interview. Long story short, his interviewee, another tail, attaches himself to our side pocket to get an unobstructed view of NN12. Well, I guess it wasn't unobstructed, but...
(You said butt... heh heh)
And so it begins...
side pocket, living up to his fan's expectations, began sporting the tail to SFKossack events, much to everyone's delight. Here is documentation of one of his episodes with Kossacks not yet, um, exposed to side pocket's tail.
Here we are at the SFKossacks' Oyster Bash in Northern California, last August, to welcome out of towners:
So side pocket says he has a surprise. Watching him reach into the back of his pants was a little unnerving for onlookers...
The apprehensive onlookers were quickly relieved with glee when side pocket revealed that his tail is NOT a myth.
Flash forward to NN13 when side pocket is just innocently wandering around. When who but belinda ridgewood, once again, has to have herself some.
Hence the beginning photo at the top ^^^^ of this diary.
She can't be controlled.
Here is belinda ridgewood, back in October, documented taking liberties with Wings, Aji's S.O.. (Wings really seems to be enjoying this, in fact, so I'm told, orchestrating this, "not a little pinch, really grab a big hunk!" but that's another diary.)
She apparently is now notorious for partaking in whatever moves her at the moment.
So BEWARE, Kossacks. One never knows if belinda ridgewood is lurking. Lurking to snatch whatever she can from you.
The innocent side pockets and their tail have tales to tell. I don't think this is the end.
