A Nikon Fairytale

Once upon a time, there were 2 girls at a Blog convention in Chicago. Both of these girls were big fans of Carson Kressley. One enjoyed watching him in Queer Eye for the Straight Guy and one enjoyed watching him in the show that made average or plump women be proud of themselves in their own skin. What made their journey to see Carson even better was the fact that Nikon was sponsoring him.

These girls were VERY excited and decided they needed to be the first in line even though they would be partying with Carson later that evening. While they were standing there, a strapping young man sauntered over and inquired as to who this Carson dude was. The girl known as CapeCodSue said, "Duh, he was in Queer Eye for the Straight Guy and he was one of the 'queer guys'. "

Gary waited a beat and then said, "Really?" Which was a polite way for saying "no way you silly blond girl. I worship him too!"

CapeCodSue, MelisaWithOneS and Gary had a good laugh over that. CCSue told Gary that she was in the market for a gay BFF and wondered if he had room in his little black book for her info. It was true love when Gary called CCSue his "fag hag".

Quite a crowd had turned out by the time Carson walked into the room. Even though, a short, blond bitch wormed her way in front of CCSue and MelisaWOS, Carson said,
He was wearing some very sweet pants. Gary was so excited about the whole experience, he did a little happy dance!

CCSue was so happy to hear that Carson was coming to visit Provincetown the next week, that she invited him over for lobster.

As if that wasn't enough, later that evening (after getting all dolled up), CCSue and MelisaWOS were whisked away to the Nikon party.

No, they didn't go in a

they went in style!
There was serious fun and pampering to be had at this party. There were delicious drinks

back massages....
makeup to be done for the makeup challenged....
and chocolate fountains.
The king of the joint was there looking very suave and debonnaire. Gone were the casual flowery pants of the afternoon.

King Carson was very kind and patient with 100 female blog crazy women trying to get their picture with him. Of course, CCSue and MelisaWOS were his favorite crazy blogger women. He even gave them tiaras.
The End or perhaps To Be Continued if Carson and Nikon team up at Blogher 10 in NYC!!!

P.S. To see Melisa's version of this event, go here!

Did Carson accept? Is he coming over for lobster?

Great photos! I'm jealous. I want a tiara, too. Oh, a back massage would be nice, too.

I'm so glad you had a blast in Chicago.
