I bet you my night is more uncomfortable than yours...

So, I just landed in Pittsburgh and checked into the hotel. Turns out there is a furry convention happening right now...

Furries are people who dress up as cartoon animals. I could not make this up if I tried.. Most of them are just lonely people that escape stuff through comic books, some are people who are seriously into this notion (dressing up as a stuffed animal) as a fetish.

Just a bit off, huh? :lol: And I thought I got wierd in college.

So anyway, the ride up the elevator consisted of me, a terrified business woman who sounded like she was from England and really wanted off of the elevator, one guy dress as a racoon with music coming out of him, his girlfriend, two old guys in dragon t-shirts all over each other, a stop at every floor with a DIFFERENT kind of animal looking into the elevator and cursing because there's not room for their tails....you get the idea. Let me state for the record that I am a very open-minded guy but seeing someone in a raccoon suit outside of a football game or a kid's show just ain't right.

So...needless to say, there are a lot of animal sounds coming from the hallway. Next time you're in Pittsburgh, check the convention schedule...if something like this is in town, do NOT stay at the Westin.

And I thought dog people were weird. Now I really know "dog people" who are weird.

Never did like my kids around those creepy folks at six Flags and such. I guess most are just kids with summer jobs......but! :eek:

Hah! I won't recommend it to anyone, but the comedy "Bad Santa" cracked me up. Kind of a look under the beard, and it was not pretty.

And yeah, I always wonder about some of those guys!

I thought it was kind of cute. Adults playing out their childhood fantasies about being stuffed animals............until I found out they actually want to have sex in their furry little costumes. YUCK!!! WIERDOS!!! :-# Woody, be careful, you never know who or what will be sniffing around.
