Well, it all had to finally come to an end. IML 09 was a great time. I met many great guys, didn’t get as much sex as I wanted, but still had a fantastic time. Once again, I woke up because I couldn’t sleep any more. I did a little bit of blogging and went to wander through the lobby. This is one of my favorite mornings to go to the lobby because you have the IML people leaving and everyone else coming. The new people don’t have any idea what had been happening for the past weekend.
I ran into my friend Brian, who owns Tribal Son with his partner. They make some truly amazing and high quality jewelry. You have to check them out. I usually end up talking to his partner more, so it was nice to get to chat with him. I first met them a couple years back at Market Days, then see them at most events. We chatted for an hour or two, but then I decided I better go pack my stuff so I could be out of my room by noon.
My flight wasn’t till 5:30, so I was stalling and not wanting it to end. I brought my luggage down and checked at the hotel for a couple hours so I could get some lunch. I ran into my friends from Maimi, Marty and Mike, that I had hung out with quite a bit throughout the weekend. They are very awesome and real guys. The fact that they are both kinky in their own ways is just a bonus 😛
They ended up checking their luggage too and we went to grab some lunch at Giordano’s pizza. It’s the place we were looking for a couple nights ago, but this time we actually found it. The pizza was much, much better. They hadn’t done Millenium park so we went through there taking pictures at The Bean and then checking out the water display thing below.
Eventually we made it back to the hotel, then it was time to say our good-byes. I left the hotel and make the 8 block voyage to the Blue Line to take the train back to the airport. I couldn’t justify the $30 shuttle versus a $2.50 train ride that would take about the same time.
I saw a couple IML boys in the airport, but not as many as I expected. They all probably took a different airline. There was this hot daddy (pictured below) on the flight back to Austin with us. There was another friend, Chris, from Austin that was on the plane back. He’s one of those first-class, premium member guys, so he got on the plane like 5 hrs before me leaving me by myself. I slept the entire flight back, and the next couple days too. IML really wiped me out.
