My First MIR, Part 3

After my second experience with Fossil9, I got back to the rubber.  The next day consisted of more time hanging out in the market.  In the evening, I once again found myself at the cocktail hour.  After the hour was over, and people began to funnel into the auditorium for the contest, I again found myself heading for the elevator with other plans.

I was on my way to Touché with Fossil9, Toil, and NateQx.  We weren't there long before I was handcuffed and on my knees.  It wasn't too exciting there, so we decided to head to Jackhammer, where the real party was.  We arrived shortly before the bulk of the crowd arrived, so we hung out on the main level for a few minutes before moving downstairs.  It was only a few minutes later that my hands were cuffed behind my back.  I remained that way for the rest of the evening in the club, with a quick switch to more restrictive hinged cuffs a bit later.

The next day was another at the market.  I spent a good part of the day there until the market closed for the event.  Later that evening, I went to Sidetrack with my good friend Tynan, where the rest of my friends would be spending the evening.  It was showtunes night.  Now showtunes aren't really my thing, and at first, I felt very out of place.  A majority of the tunes were a bit beyond my time, so they were very unfamiliar to me.  I loosened up after a few of those amazing slushies though!

Unfortunately, that was it for MIR.  It was over.  The next morning, I began the long journey home by train, then plane, then automobile.  It was my first MIR, but it won't be my last.  I had an absolute blast.

Thanks to those of you who helped make my MIR trip possible and as amazing as it was!  Love you guys!
