Whiskerino 2009

Finn MacCool

is worthy of being followed.

Had some creative ideas for my last shot but @FerociousCupcake isn't feeling well and sometimes simplicity is best.
Whiskerino has been in my life at the times I needed it most.
In '05 I had just broken up with Amanda for a brief time. It gave me something to do and kept my mind off of the situation
In '07 I was finishing college and we got engaged. Whiskerino was my much needed stress relief.

This Whiskerino was undoubtedly different due to the fact that it was the final year and that some of the anchors of years past left our numbers early. It was the first year I made it to the Throwdown. We greatly appreciated the friendship and kind words that were spoken by all we met. Thanks to each and every one of you that has affected our lives in one way or another. @mackle words cannot express how thankful I am at your creation and curating of this unbelievable phenomenon. See you guys around.

If any of you are ever in town let me know. My Facebook has my phone number so if you need to get ahold of me add me. Feel free to contact me via the following means.

I miss you guys, and this whiskerino thing has helped me feel like I am a part of your life just a little bit since you've left Lakeland. Zach and I will make it to the great northern land of Atlanta sooner rather than later.

It was great to meet both of you. I was so drunk and had such a dodgy throat on the Friday I hope you understood me fine. Ha ah!

Hope Amanda feels better soon.

I just got a little teary eyed. I don't think I would have ever become involved in this without helping you take pics in '07. I will never forget the child hanging from your beard. I hope that one day we will be able to do this again. I will miss seeing all of these pics. It lets me see what I am missing with you guys gone. Thanks for this great experience and for a friendship of a lifetime. I miss you and love you...no homo...also @ferociouscupcake.

everytime i realize that folks on here who i haven't had a chance to hang out with much are within driving distance or hell biking distance it makes me smile. lookin forward to getting to know you outside of the whiskerino. Lemme know when Amanda is feeling better. I'd love to get together. Maybe you guys, Harmony and I could grab some lunch or dinner.

Totally loved finally meeting you after so many years of internet viewing.... and it was a treat to meet your lovely wife as well..and she is just as beautiful in real life as she is in your photgraphs. YOu'll have to give me some tips on how to trick a beautiful redhead into marrying me. You are awesome... and i'll think of you ever time i pass the bar that shares your nam.e

Ozzy Nelson says:
I'm sorry Amanda is sick. I hope she gets better soon.
You two are great. At the Throw Down, it seems that you can't talk to anyone very long, but I'm glad we got to spend the time that we did.
I have been a huge fan of yours since '05. If you are in town, we will have a beer.

Amanda, I love the color of your hair.

Sincerely, eating with you guys on Sunday was a highlight of my weekend! Cool people, those are the only kind that exist in this microcosm, I'm certain of it. 100%. Please do look me up if you guys come back Nashville way.

We didn't get to chat much but I hope (along with @cdub) change that in the near future around ATL. Two things:

- You look way cooler with a beard
- @FerociousCupcake is awesome

That is a beard - I can only aspire to that kind of greatness.

Presto Beardo says:
Finn, you and I have never got to know eachother, yet I can still picture some of your photos in my head without any reference, with that, one thing is clear, your beard size defies logic

themightyjones says:
Your beard has apparently eaten a hedgehog. Amazing. You guys look great. I hope Amanda feels better. Take care!

damnweather says:
finn, i think you are yet another beard i had every intention of hanging out with a bit last weekend and it just never happened (maybe we at least said 'hey' or acknowledged one another? i sadly cannot recall). either way, good luck to you and @FerociousCupcake. you grow a mean beard, that's for damn sure.

They watched the cars pass by for a few minutes before she finally said something.

"I really like this blanket."
"Yeah. It's nice. Soft."
"No. I mean I really like it. More than a friend."
"I don't know what that means."
"I don't either, but I'm thinking about asking it out on a date."
"I don't understand what you're talking about right now."
"If we go out tonight, you know, to that Chinese place, I want to take the blanket rather than you."
"I..."
"I'm just kidding. You can come too."

It was super great meeting both of you, and I hope our worlds cross paths again in the future.

JamesC says:
the blanket is warm
american hat is hot
but you are MacCool

i know we didn't get to meet at the throwdown, but it's probably for the best as my evil scowls at you went unnoticed. i think you're immune to my poison.

good luck whiskerino alumni brother and stay MacCool.
