I know I promised everyone a rundown of RT – and you shall get it – but after a very long, tiring week and hellish travel home, I’m too pooped and brain dead to start telling you all about my adventures. (And there are adventures… You can probably find a more cogent explanation of all the RT activities and things on other sites, so I’ll limit my debriefing to my own adventures! But those stories will be coming over the next couple of weeks, because the Playfriends are not going to let me hog the blog…)
So instead, we’ll skip to the very pretty men that wander through the crowds at RT and do a special Tuesday MOANday!
Meet my choice for Mr. Romance 2010 (but the 1st runner up in the contest, alas), Franco D’Angelo:
Ladies, those are some impressive shoulders. Impressive. I think he could bench press my car. (And his calf muscles are un-freaking-real).
Franco is a pro wrestler from Texas (with his own action figure and everything!) and a total sweetheart. We hung out some – in the bar, of course! – and in addition to being a nice, funny guy, the attention was very good for my ego. Who doesn’t like the attention of a pretty man, especially when there are a lot of other women around who would like that attention? (Yes, I know they have to be nice to the attendees, but let's not burst my bubble too quickly, okay? Thanks.)
That's a mighty big belt (and bicep!):
(Let's just say it was a good thing I met him *before* I googled him because all of his wrestling pictures would make you think he was a real Beastie instead of a Sweetie.)
It’s not often that our MOANday men are someone we can honestly say we know, so here’s proof:
I feel downright petite and delicate and fragile standing next to him. I'm wearing five-inch heels -- with platforms! -- in this picture!
The "cool kids" table in the bar:
(Me, Franco, Lynn Raye Harris, Tom and Olga (the ballroom dancers who wowed us during the show), and writer Wendi Darlin. Those are the Mr. Romance trophies on the table. The winner, Jamie, had been by for a while and left his with us for safekeeping and, along with Franco's, they made a lovely centerpiece.)
I think Franco is definitely cover model material – Harlequin is welcome to put him on one of my covers anytime…
(So, yeah, RT was a lot of fun. ~g~)
