Dmitri goes dancing while Adam films an Alice In Wonderland short. Will anything happen before Dmitri has to return to Chicago? Will Adam follow him back to Chicago?

Cute straight boys, nerdy punk rock animé haired boys, drunk bisexuals with tongue rings, Progaine Shampoo, key theft, butt grabbers, Livejournal, fetishism, Celeste, and Mortimer Velociraptor; the first part of this story was written for an Archie McPhee contest for embarrassing dating stories. I won. The final portion of the story won the hearts of Livejournal fans, as their favorite Insafemode Journal entry of 2004. I have altered it a bit, for continuity's sake, and because I hated it.
The convention mentioned is, yes, the 2003 National Poetry Slam. Also, there is a line that ended up in Drunken Conversations At Hampshire College.
Also, the chair I was using squeaks periodically. I was not harboring a duck fugitive.
Featuring Saint, David, Celeste, Mortimer Velociraptor, and a bunch of people you will never hear about again.
