Spanishbride reports back on Decade of Dirt

For those of you who were unable to attend the first thing I want to tell you about the venue was the secret bookcase. I wish I had taken a photo because I loved it and want one in my home. Our room was behind the bookcase which spun around to allow us entry. A secret entrance for the Decade of Dirt appealed to my inner child big time.

Once inside the room the decor had the feel of a library/den inside an old mansion. There were comfortable chairs and small tables scattered around the room with a table at the back for the food. It made for a very relaxed atmosphere and as we all had so much in common conversation flowed easily all night. I am an introvert yet I was in engaged in constant conversation all night interrupted only by some very entertaining speeches.

My favourite speeches were from Whaleoil readers who shared with us why they enjoy reading and participating in the Whaleoil community. In fact community really was the buzz word of the night and was the reason why we were all so at ease with each other despite all being total strangers.

I didn’t get to talk to a number of the people I was wanting to meet. David Farrar for example I have never once met in person and though he was there we didn’t get an opportunity to talk. Believe it or not I have never met Cactus Kate in person either though I have joked with her when she has been in Skype conversations with Cam. Her ‘ telegram ‘ read out to everyone by Maurice Williamson had everyone in stitches. I am sure she would have been even funnier in person.

There was a lot of laughter last night and even I managed to make a short speech. People wondered how much time Cam spends on the Blog and I chose to enlighten them. For ten years he has been up and working by 7-8am seven days a week. For 8 of those years he wouldn’t go to bed until midnight. Pete interrupted my explanation to inform everyone that Cam now knocks off work 11-11.30 pm after telling Pete that he is on a promise or that it is Freaky Friday or Sexy Saturday. He claimed that it was too much information knowing when we are getting it on much to everyone’s amusement.

Which reminds me of a point Cam raised during one of his speeches. Every one says Dirty Politics like it is a bad thing yet we all know that Dirty Sex is a lot more fun than Vanilla sex šŸ˜‰

SonovaMin our brilliant cartoonist made a speech and was greeted with cheers and applause when he let everyone know who he was. It was clear that he has a huge fan base. He told us some great inside information about an MSM organisation that he used to work for that was so startling that Maurice Williamson dramatically fell to the floor in shock.

Maurice spilled some dirt on Cameron from when he was 14 and warned Cameron that he had hired a hitman to get him because of what Cam said about him choosing not to run for Mayor a while back.

Another speaker told an amusing tale about how Cameron worked with him doing debt collection from Gang members. He made the point that Cam is not just a guy being tough behind a computer screen he is actually just as fearless in real life.

This morning I have been reading a number of Blog posts by other blogs speculating about The Decade of Dirt. Their obsession with our party is amusing. They simultaneously wanted to be there to find out what we were all up to at the same time as wanting to declare our party a failure. One Blog was terribly disappointed that our live Blog turned out to be a fizzer. Not knowing what we were up to was frustrating them terribly, so much so that they started conspiracy theories as to why so little information was out there. Poor old Pete got the blame. Obviously they concluded we were censoring it so heavily that very little was able to get into the public arena.

I don’t know why that surprised them. After all we were eating barbequed kittens while making voodoo dolls of Wrongly Wrongson while dancing around an indoor fire in our birthday suits. We couldn’t have that kind of information out there so OF COURSE we had to censor it duh!
