Gerard Butler GALS

Recommended Posts

Well I have told you all the bits you really wanted to hear first; the bits about meeting the extraordinary... ordinary Gerry Butler.... but there is so much more to the story, and if you would please permit me... I shall tell the rest.

First off... you all need to know that I did not pay for my trip to Vegas. Months ago when I was struggling with depression and anxiety... mostly as an aftermath of Nathan's illness, a woman who does not wish to be named, offered to pay my way to Vegas. She did this because she felt the trip might help me to cope better with my difficult situation, and because she is a kind and caring person who loves my writing and Nathan's music.

Were it not for her selfless act of kindness, I never would have gone to Vegas. I owe her my thanks and appreciation.... and my dear lady... you know who you are.

When I contemplated actually making this trip... I was excited for the chance to meet so many of my "Gerry Friends".... but also terrified because I rarely travel alone... and I have never flown anywhere without my husband. I am not a very independent woman, mostly because I do not drive... and over the last few years, due to everything that has befallen my son... I admit that I have become a bit reclusive. So the idea of jumping on a plane and traveling to a strange city to meet a lot of people who were in a way, strangers to me... absolutely terrified me.

Yet I knew that I had to do this, and I had a sense all along that this trip to Vegas would be a significant and defining moment in my life.

As the months flew by and Vegas approached... Nathan became seriously ill again, and I wondered if I should cancel the trip... feeling somewhat selfish in planning a holiday while he suffered so. Thankfully his condition improved enough for me to feel relatively secure about leaving him... and as I boarded the plane for Vegas on wednesday June 7, I was full of anticipation.

Meeting my good buddy Libby at the Vegas airport was my first hurdle... though we had spoken on the phone a number of times, we had never met face to face... and I did not even know what she looked like! But when she approached me at the baggage carousel.... my worries fled away, because I instantly loved her! We hugged like old friends and chatted away, while taking the cab to our hotel in a city that appeared to me... one giant amusement ride.

Once at the hotel, we quickly unpacked and headed downstairs to the cafe for a bite to eat. Again I was caught up in my fears of the unknown... walking through the smoke filled casino through a sea of strangers... and some of them were just plain strange.

As we entered the cafe, we noticed a table full of happy and sexy women, and somehow.. we knew they must be GALS! I had seen the photo of Dayna with the white paper in front of her face... so I vaguely recognized her hairstyle.... but the other ladies seated at the table were unknown to me, and despite my shyness... Libby and I proceeded right to that table and introduced ourselves.

Nothing could have prepared me for how instantly we were embraced and welcomed by our sister GALS! The entire table emptied as we were fawned over, hugged and greeted... showered with compliments, and made to feel more love than I could have imagined. Putting names with the faces of these beautiful ladies was such a joy... and I shall never forget how affirming they all were, right from the start

To be continued later.....

Aww, that's so great. I remember the first time I met ladies from GB.net. . .sisterhood bonds that will last forever. Can't wait to read more of your Vegas Experience.

Part 3 Continues.

I shall name as many of the ladies we met in the cafe that afternoon as I can recall ... forgive me please, if I left you out!

Dayna... the dynamic, blonde and beautiful Dr Em, the sultry and sweet Risa; Luvphantom, the quiet and elegant Jenni; Nurse St Giles, the warm and friendly Cat; Terry's Witch, the outrageous and beautiful Annette; Dr Batista, the sweet Kimbo; Kimberley, whose new smaller eye glasses, made it impossible to recognize her by her profile photo, and I cannot forget Pam... Football Princess who absolutely lit up when she hugged me. Such a warm and giving young woman, who told me right off that I looked MUCH younger than she expected!

What a way to start the trip!

Honestly... I was such a silly goose when it came to worrying what the ladies would think of me. Ever subconscious about my weight... I felt insecure and nervous, but the ladies quickly made me forget my extra poundage.

The giggles and bawdy Gerry remarks began right away, as Libby and I joined the GALS table. I was too nervous to eat at first, so we all just chatted and laughed, our female energy radiant on all our faces. I kept looking across the table at the women who have been my friends for nearly a year now... marveling over how we had all come together from so many parts of the world.

I thought about the humorous and naughty posts on GALS. I thought about the kind words in the Support Center to GALS who had been having a bad day on the boards, and I thought about all those who had posted prayers, or even called me, when Nathan's illness flared up again. I was reminded of the uniqueness of every woman on GALS, and I realized what a privilege it was to be part of such a brilliant happening.... all because of Gerard Butler... an actor who some of us lust for, some of us admire for his gifts as an actor, and some of us have come to love as a person.

And yes I believe that in our uniqueness and delightful quirkiness... we reflect the man we adore, to varying degrees.

We were each there in Vegas for our individual reasons, but we were also there because one man brought us together... and it never even occurred to me at that point, that he may actually be part of the festivities to come. I was happy just to be in the presence of such talented, funny, sexy and sweet women... and I was thrilled that my shyness was in check. They made me feel like family.

more to come.....

I haven't had the opportunity to meet anyone from GB.net or GALS yet, but I so look forward to doing so sometime in the future. Everyone always seems to have so much fun together. But, unfortunately, I haven't been able to go to any events. :cry: Hopefully, someday!

The wednesday afternoon Libby and I arrived in Vegas, we were invited by Dr Em to join the other ladies that evening, for a night out on the strip, and so we dolled ourselves up and headed for the celebrity suite, where we met a whole bunch of other great GALS for the first time! It was so exciting to meet more of my on-line friends... and I just loved everyone instantly! Once our lovely hostess was attired in a smashing black dress and strappy high heels (yes I said high heels) we all left the hotel for our destination.

It was a beautiful warm night full of storm clouds and lightning! I loved the feel of the warm air, and really enjoyed the overthetop theatricality of the city! We watched the fountain show at some casino whose name I can't recall... but it was breathtaking, listening to Sinatra as hundreds of glowing water jets pulsed and rocketed upward in time to the music. Like many sights in Vegas, I had never seen anything like that fountain show before. From there, we walked over to Caesar's Palace, and I must tell you all, it was truly a delight hanging out with Dayna and her troupes. Everywhere we went, you could count on handsome young men noticing our lovely Dayna... who was always the perfect lady!

By the time we hit the Palace... I will admit that my feet were killing me (and I was wearing flat flip flops)! But I followed and kept up as best I could, as we made our way to the Cheesecake Factory... where we ordered drinks, food and desert, and just had a great time getting acquainted! I had such a blast chatting with everyone, and Dayna filled us all in on the history of how GALS started! Once again I was struck by how at ease I felt with all the ladies... and I was so excited about what lay ahead for the rest of the convention.

Heading back on the Monorail was fun, as Football Princess enjoyed chatting with a few strangers, and the rest of us clustered together and talked the journey back to the hotel.

There was discussion of maybe going dancing... but most of us were too tired to party, and by that time, it was nearing 1:00AM.... so Libby and I headed upstairs where I immediately crawled into bed, while she happily went downstairs to get her hands on a slot machine! (I won't tell you how much she won that first night... but I think her luck went a bit sour after that!)

I slept so well that first night, which surprised me when I woke in the morning, as I usually do not sleep well when I travel. I felt fantastic on thursday, and could not wait to see the Phantom exhibit Libby and I had planned to attend that afternoon. However... things did not work out with out rental car, and we were unable to follow through with our plans, so we just hung out, looked at some shops, and then it seems to me, we hung out with the ladies in the celebrity sweet, where Annette showed us her gorgeous silver jewelry... and I decided that I MUST have one of the Gerry Charm bracelets (which I am now proudly wearing)

It was so cool... we all just lounged on the bed while more people arrived, and I do believe this was when I first met Jill... who I instantly loved! I must say, that Dayna and her team were so inviting and sweet to everyone, always making certain that no one felt left out, and since I am normally a wallflower among strangers... I was so relieved when we all just giggled and chatted and oh yes.... played with a particular perky little wind up toy, whom we named wee Willie!

Oh my gosh... aren't girlfriends just the best??? In some ways, I felt like I was back in high school... except that these ladies were much nicer to me than the chicks back at Sunset HS! With the GALS, I really felt I could be myself... let my hair down and have confidence in these new friendships. While I helped hold Dayna's hair extensions, we GALS discussed everything from fashion, to make-up, to of course, sex and Gerry!

(okay... I did not say, "sex with Gerry", so get your minds out of the gutter... geez!)

By the afternoon, we headed for our various destinations, and I think I may have gone upstairs for a nap, while Libby went down and gambled some more.

More to come.... Swan's first ever male strip show!

Swan -- you are an artist with your words. I'm enjoying every moment of this.

And that was fun, sitting on the bed helping Dayna curl those lovely extensions. (How many can YOU hold?) You were one of the people that I so wanted to meet and it was wonderful that you were one of the first. Your picture that you have posted in your profile doesn't do you justice my dear! You just have a grace about you that is hard to put into words. But I know anyone that met you that weekend, knows what I'm talking about.

It really did feel like a big slumber party that Wednesday afternoon. I had been scared to death walking into that hotel, not knowing anyone but as soon as I met Pam and then all the lovely ladies up in the room, I knew everything would be fine. Especially when we all got to giggling over Wee Willie. And "other" discussions. Too funny!

The one thing I'm sad about for you is that you didn't get a chance that weekend to see the POTO costume exhibit. I know it was something that you and Libby both wanted to do and it just ticked me off that some bozo at the rental car place made that impossible for you guys. I hope if we all do Vegas next year, that our wonderful Metrospace (Susan) will allow us to come again. I was stunned by the beauty and the detail of the costumes. So I know, with your artistic eye, you would be as well.

But this is your thread. So, I'm waiting in anticipation for your next installment!

Hhahahahahahah......

And thanks for the compliment Rush... glad you enjoyed the aria... and just for the record, I am STILL not sure if Gerry actually heard me sing it (Via Jeremy's recording) I wish someone could tell me exactly what the man said to me when I was up there, sucked mercilessly into his eyes!

Thursday evening, it was so much fun to wait in Pacos (was that the name of the place??), for all the GALS and other G-fans to arrive for dinner. One by one, I met face to face, so many of the ladies I had been hanging with on the board; Toni, Chris, Jenn, Songbird and many others... and it was just so great to put faces with names! There were lots of hugs and shouts and air-kisses, and then we just kept squeezing in to make more room at the table, and when we ran out of space, more tables were taken by this chatty group of excited GALS.

After the gabby meal... we took cabs to the casino where Thunder Down Under were performing their nightly show, and having never been to a strip show before... I was pretty nervous as we waited to go into the the little theater where they perform their...um.... acts.

Now I just gotta say, it was a total hoot watching how we all responded as these well sculpted men got down to the G-strings with lots of bumping and grinding. Being the theater person I am... I must admit to critiquing the show (unfavorably); from the costumes to the stage, set and lighting... but I was kind of surprised by how sweet those guys were... I guess I did not know what to expect. (And just for the record... I thought Ben was by far the sexiest of them all!)

I am sure most of the GALS present would agree though, the highlight of the evening was our own Songbird; Katie's competitive performance on stage of a .... well..... a first class :gerrygasm: :baby:

She won the lifetime admiration and near worship of every GAL present that night, by incorporating the G-man's name in her impromptu demonstration!!! :bow2:

Seriously though, these guys danced into the audience and chose unsuspecting ladies to participate in their... uh... games, and Katie was a great sport when she was chosen as one of three women to reinact the famous "When Harry Met Sally" sandwich scene. She did us all proud! :goodjob2: (and besides, the other two girls sucked!)

I was very careful that night, not to hoot and holler with the rest of them, cuz I did not want to damage my voice... but as Jill can attest... I did do some mighty rowdy table pounding!!!

The boys were hot... and that IS the most male nakedness (well near nakedness) that I have ever seen in one place... but truthfully... for me it was no turn on, just a whole lot of fun, hanging out with all you crazy GALS!!!!

Honestly.... one look at Gerry's chest through an open shirt :cleavage2 gets me hotter than a room full of sculpted bare :barebum:

What can I say??? I've :gotgals0ll:

After the show, I think a bunch of us GALS headed back to the Sahara in a limo, and by then... I was very tired. I'm pretty sure I got in bed right away, and though I did fall asleep for a little while, I kept waking up to use the restroom, so I got very little sleep that night. I can't recall, but Libby may have gone back downstairs for another round of slot machines... If I remember, she got in at about 3:00AM... something like that!

Friday morning when I crawled out of bed... I was feeling really draggy, but managed to shower and dress, and then we went downstairs for breakfast before heading up to register in the Ballroom. I got my bag of cool Gerry & GALS stuff, and met some more GALS I had not seen until then... and then sat down at Barb's table to make my masquerade mask with several other crafty ladies.

Ladies came and went, as new members arrived for registration, and then I suppose some of them headed out to the strip to do some exploring of Vegas... but by the time I had completed my mask that afternoon, I was feeling pretty weary, and after chatting with a few GALS... I went back up to my room to nap.

Again I had trouble sleeping, and maybe dozed off for an hour, but when I woke up... I knew that something was wrong.... because my frequent visits to the restroom were becoming painful. When I woke up from that much-too-short nap and ran for the bathroom yet again... I was absolutely shaking with chills and my teeth were even chattering. With a sinking feeling in my gut... I realized I had a fever and that I must have come down with a bladder infection. EDITED TO ADD: I FOUND OUT LATER....IT WAS A KIDNEY INFECTION

It hit me hard and fast. I started feeling horrible, and with the dinner and talent show only a few hours away, I was feeling so disappointed, that once again when something important was happening in my life... I was getting ill.

I think by then I was even crying, and figured I would just not be able to perform, or even go to the party, but then I remembered that Football Princess; Pam, is a Dr.... and I thought maybe, she might be able to help. Well bless Libby's heart, because she was really concerned when I got so flushed and my teeth started chattering, so she called Dayna... who sent Pam almost immediately to my room.

I think it was nearing 4:00 when Pam arrived... and you cannot imagine how sweet and patient she was with me! Kimbo; Kim, had come up with her, and the two of those dear ladies left the hotel, and found a pharmacy where Pam purchased a prescription of antibiotics for me, as well as some over the counter stuff and a jug of cranberry juice. They were back in a flash... and with strict orders from DR Pam... I took my meds and crawled back into bed. By then I was chilling so badly... that poor Libby had to turn off the air conditioner.

I was so embarrassed putting these dear sweet women through all that... but had it not been for their kindness, I would not have made it. I have spent hours waiting in the ER more than once with a raging bladder infection... so I was extremely relieved that Pam was able to get the antibiotics I needed so quickly.

Finally... after resting for a couple hours, I decided that there was NO way I was going to miss the party. Nathan had worked so hard on the accompaniment for my aria... and I had been practicing for weeks... so I was determined to debut our aria for my sister Gerry fans... no matter what!

I really felt like crap when I was getting dolled up in my make-up and gown... but I've sung through fevers, sore throats, bronchitis and flu.... I knew I might not be at my best, but I made it downstairs.... and the rest of Friday night's story you already know. WOW!!!!!

I must publicly thank Dayna for so quickly sending Pam and Kimmy to my rescue.... and Pam, truly, you amazed me! That you would actually leave the hotel and go to a pharmacy for my meds (and I will pay you back... I need your mailing address) and then take such good care of me... wow.

And Libby..... I felt so badly that you had to put up with my whining.... you were SUCH a friend to me, and I know that without you... I would have been in big trouble.

Okay... I still have more to share.... later.

Swan - Yes, I can attest to the fact that while you contained yourself vocally at the Thunder show, you were very demonstrative in other ways! I, on the other hand, was whooping and hollering like a crazy woman. That was a fun show.

To watch you perform that night, you would have never known you were that ill. The soul of your music just poured thru it all. Amazing.

I know I've said it, but it is so much fun to hear about your weekend the way you are telling it. It just keeps bringing me back to such a fabulous few days. *sigh*

Well thanks Jill... I am glad to know that I am not boring you all to tears. But I have a need to get this written... and once I have told the whole Vegas story... I can move onto writing Chanson again!

Actually... these are the parts of the Vegas story that will hang with me..... all of you GALS and how you breezed into my life!

Continuing my story....

I was pretty much a zombie on Saturday morning, since I got no sleep again on Friday night. I felt so disconnected from everyone at the Beowulf movie, and it felt weird after Friday night's big friggin party. I don't know... for some reason, I just did not feel like part of the group... and it was all I could do to keep my eyes open during the film. Not to say I did not enjoy it, but I think I kept dosing off (sorry Gerry).

When we arrived back at the hotel, Libby and I went to the cafe for lunch, and then I decided to go upstairs for a nap. I knew I was missing all the fun... but I was just so tired, and although the meds were kicking the infection, I still felt basically rotten.

I maybe slept an hour, and woke up with chills and fever again. Libby was still sleeping, but I wanted to find out where everyone was, and hang out with the group. For a short time I was in the Ballroom visiting with a few GALS... I wandered around the hotel a bit, but I was getting depressed. Finally I ended up back in our room and took a shower, and by this time Libby was awake, so we decided to call up to the hospitality suite and see what was cooking up there.

I joined a group of the GALS in my wet hair, to watch JOTS for my first time, and talked and laughed, and visited with Dayna while she readied her dress for the Ball... but I was just not into the whole thing... and really considered missing the Ball.

Well I've already told you what happened to Cinderella at the Ball in Part 2 of my story... but to put it in a nut shell, The Handsome Prince showed up, and the whole place went ballistic (in a good way)! He did not give me a glass slipper... but he did present me with a beautiful silver pendant in a silver box, and I shall never forget his kindness, or those fairy-tale eyes.

After Gerry left and took his lightening storm of energy and charisma with him... I had a blast dancing with the GALS and getting jiggy! It was fun..... and I was so high on the moment, I am sure I was paying no attention to the fact that I was sweating like mad... and NOT drinking enough water. But still, when everyone headed up to the hospitality suite... I used Libby's phone to call my hubby.... and I told him the whole story about the Butler Award and Gerry... and he was overjoyed and giggling like a teenager! That's my Bill... always there supporting me! (he is truely my handsome prince)

After the call, I hung with the ladies in the hospitality suite... and then finally, hugged every single GAL in that room before finally saying goodbye. WOW.... what an amazing night!!!!

But after I got back up to my room, finished packing and crawled into bed... things got very bad. I never slept at all Saturday night, and spent the entire night curled up near the toilet... I was terribly nauseous, the fever had come back... and I was freezing. I realized I was in trouble and did not know what to do, because my plane was leaving at around 11:00 that morning. Finally at about 7:30... Libby woke up and called Pam again, and we were trying to decide whether or not I should go to the ER there in Vegas... but when Libby called my husband... he said, "no way.... she has to come home!"

I had no desire to be stuck in the ER, in a strange city... but I wasn't sure I could get on that plane. Libby MADE me eat a banana, and take some tylenol.... and somehow, with the help of a wheelchair, I made it to the airport, where Libby again, took such good care of me. I couldn't figure out why I was so sick... and worried that maybe the bladder infection had moved into my kidneys. EDITED TO ADD: IT WAS A KIDNEY INFECTION ALL ALONG

Libby made arrangements for me to have a wheelchair, and we had a few starts and stops, as she ended up with my carryon and had to bring it to my gate.... but we said our goodbyes, and they wheeled me onto the plane. I felt like such a dork... but I was too weak to walk.

I honestly remember little of the plane ride back to Portland, and was so glad when I saw my husband where they wheeled me, just past the security in our clean and smoke free airport. I told him I did not want to go to emergency yet, because I knew I would have to sit hours in the waiting room before seeing a Doc... so I asked him to just take me home, and let me sleep for awhile.

I did not realize it until I got home... but now I understand, that although the infection was clearing up... I was severely dehydrated. So I just started drinking Gatorade like crazy, went to bed and slept for a VERY long time! After a bit of sleep, and tons of fluids, my fever broke.... and I began to feel less nauseous.

Within a few days, I was feeling a bit better... though still very weak.

The events of the entire convention still feel like a dream... and I still relive each moment of my meeting Gerry (that is, what I can bloody remember)... and of my enchanted time in Vegas with you GALS.

So that my dears... is how meeting Gerard Butler landed me in a wheelchair!!!!

Later.... some final thoughts.

Swan - thank you for your story. I'm so sorry that I didn't have a chance to say goodbye to you. I don't think I did. That evening after Gerry had left, everything was a bit blurry and I did not realize that you were feeling so bad by then.

And BTW, I don't think anyone has ever called me sultry - I take this as a compliment. I have always considered myself very plain (not unattractive) but just plain. But since Vegas, I realized that to be with a group of people that just accept me the way I am, made me forget my insecurities, my shyness and all the flaws that I feel I have.

And most important - I just could be me.

Now I'm crying again :bonk:

Trust me my dear, you are a very sultry lady and that IS most certainly a compliment! Sultry in my view, is a mixture of sexy, earthy and natural. That's what you are! You are not plain. Your look is very dramatic and striking, and slightly off beat! I love it!!!

I sooo enjoyed getting to know you a bit, and wish we could have had much more time to talk.... but there is always next year...right???

Yes... Vegas was definitely a confidence builder! Somehow... maybe by some kind of GALS magic... none of saw each other's flaws. Instead we saw only the unique beauty of each woman.

Swan, It breaks my heart to know that you were that sick in Vegas. I could tell by the tone of Libby's voice on the phone that things were bad but...... I know we were all so dehydrated in Vegas but my goodness I just didn't realize it could have such an effect.

Thank you for sharing your story. I'm glad you can walk away from Vegas with lots of good memories despite your illness. It was an amazing weekend. One that I will always remember. It's hard to only be able to share it here, though, because no one else seems to "get it." But I guess that's why I love GALS so much!

And Risa - Swan's description of you is perfect. Don't you EVER think of yourself as plain!

Jill... I should have realized that my problem was dangerous dehydration... Lord knows I saw my son admitted to the ER with fever, nausea and chills many times before he was diagnosed, due to severe dehydration. But I guess with all the excitement... I just was not thinking clearly. A clear case of Gerry on the brain, you know!!! :bonk::bonk:

Next year, before I even get to my hotel... I am going somewhere in that down to purchase cases of bottled water!

Thank you so much Swan and Jill - crying again here - its a bad case of PMS approaching and the fact that I miss you all and the time we spent together in Vegas.

There definitely has to be a next year.

Swan, Good idea on the water. Bottled water, and lots of it is the way to go. I swear I was drinking so much water when I got home I thought I was going to float away! But it still took a few days for my body to feel normal again. I'm thinking that may have played a part in my complete fatigue but at the same time my struggle with terrible insomnia. Feeling fairly normal again - current time of day notwithstanding! :lol:

:hugs: to you Risa. Meeting you and getting the chance to talk is definitely one of the best things about Vegas for me. I'm so glad you decided to make such a trip. :kisswink:
