    ATM Photo Trip Report - Shitshow 2015

    It's that time of year again, where all the Shitshow crowd sadly gathers on CCC to read trip reports, in an effort to learn of all the funny things they forgot about the week before (some even captured on camera), and to re-live great memories of the shenanigans we all took part in.

    There were many nervous moments among the Shitshow crew this year about actually making it to TTR, because mother nature was on her period, or otherwise very upset at the idea of us getting together yet again. Many flights were delayed, but ours was only an hour or two.

    Departing DTW, we were the only people in line for security. Apparently, that earns you some extra scrutiny. A manager was called over for something "suspicious" in my backpack. After 10 minutes of questions about what I did for a living, etc they tore my bag apart and examined everything. What drew their suspicion was a box of "Cliff Bars" from Costco, it was a big brick of 30 or so of them. He told me, "I'm gonna be honest with you. Those Cliff Bars look... ominous". Directly above that, was a big 2" diameter tube of glow sticks and assorted connectors next to them. On X-ray, it looked like a big block of C4 with a detonator device right about it. Note to self, leave the ominous cliff bars at home next trip.

    Arrival at the CUN airport (5PM Saturday) was as crowded as I've ever seen it. Got through security (green light) and into our USA Transfer. I had only booked one way this time, because we were transferring to Pearl via taxi in the middle of our trip and wanted the flexibility to manage our own schedule that day.

    Arriving at the resort was different in the evening. Normally we get there just after lunch. No warm towel this time, no drink offered, and when I told them I wanted to see my room before moving in, she said "there's no point, there's only one room". I told her certainly it would be in the 2000's by Paty-O as I requested during express check-in, and she said those were all full, but the only thing she had was a room on the third floor in the quiet 5000's, again. I was pissed. We were really looking forward to NOT staying the 5000's for once. She said we could pay $70/nt to upgrade to the Temptation Suite (not a jacuzzi suite apparently, but the "nicest room in the house" right on the ocean. I offered $50 and it was a no-go. So, off we went to our shitty 5000's room only to discover, surprise-surprise, we had non-functioning A/C yet again. I'm getting really tired of this. A call to maintenance got us 5 minutes of quality time with a wee little man who spoke no English, and shot an infrared thermometer at the register OUTPUT which read 78 degrees F. Now that's not what should be coming out of an A/C vent. It was 78 in the room, so it was just recirculating moldy air. More on that later. He told me it was working perfectly. Eff it, we thought, maybe we will just open the doorwall at night.

    I decided that while Mrs. Morgan got dressed, I'd go make some hot laps around the property to find some of the other Shitshow crew. After spending an hour without finding one single person I knew (shocking) I retreated to the room to get dressed for the buffet.

    We ate dinner, after which time the show over the sports pool was starting. Out of the corner of my eye I spot Kelly, Brent, and several others eating inside Margueritas, with a "window" seat. By "window" I mean those tables right up by the prison-style wire mesh. Since I was already pretty well "tuned-up" (my go-to saying this trip to describe my state of inebriation), I walked up to the prison fence where they were sitting and yelled "ATM in the Mother-F***'n House!!!". This certainly got their attention, and some evil eyes from boring people who were in the restaurant, eating. I thought this was good for them though, cause they were going to have to deal with our obnoxiousness for a week. Better to set their expectations early.

    After many reunions with friends were made, we had to go back and get changed for the theme night, Red Dress, which I normally hate, but this was Valentine's Day. Mrs. Morgan wanted to step it up a notch this year from her normal sexy red dress, so she put on a shredded red thing that looked like she was attacked by that stray cat from Desire Pearl. It was hot, but I can only show pics from the back on this site. The fact that nobody was dancing with her did not slow her down a bit.

    Brent, "the Mayor" of the Shitshow, had grown a considerable beard since last year. The ladies loved to stroke it, and Mrs. Morgan was no exception. Seemed like every time a lady touched his beard, he had to close his eyes and go into some kind of meditative trance. Can't say I blame him. I'm going to be trying hard to summon all six of my facial hairs to form a beard for next year.

    By the way, this guy is the Mayor, but not wearing any red? On valentines? WTF! If I didn't like the guy so much I'd petition for a recall election

    It was a fun night and when the music turned off at 2AM, we kept the party going for quite a while, and somehow I ended up down at the beach beds with my lady and a Paty-O burger (not sure which I love more). She got a little frisky before we got scolded by security, so we headed back to our room and crashed around 4am. Fortunately, I had the foresight to go secure a couple chairs for the next morning. There were only a few left, even at this hour. Seems most people were reserving them the night before.

    Not a bad start to what was going to be a fun trip. Wish we had more pictures of this first night.

    Sunday, February 15 - Sheer Night

    To my complete shock and surprise, I had a bit of a hangover on Sunday morning. Probably the worst I've felt at Temptations, but nothing an omelette and Bahama Mamma or five couldn't cure. If only there had been bacon, I would have felt human. This trip, bacon was a hot commodity. Though they "trusted" us with it by putting it out on the buffet, there usually wasn't any. It pisses me off, so I'm mentioning it for the second time.

    Reserving chairs in the middle of the night turned out to be a wise decision. I needed to crash and let the alcohol I was drinking kick in, so that I'd feel better. Now, Mrs. ATM and I have many tricks up our sleeves for hangover prevention, but honestly, when all those have failed (rare) the only thing you can do is get back on the horse. And that, I did. Mrs. ATM typically waits till evening to get her drink on.

    It was a good day to be hung over, with some good poolside entertainment. Today was the Ironwoman competition. Most of us have seen it, so no need to rehash it, other than to give a shout out to Jodi from our group who crushed the competition. Good work, Jodi! (Jodi is featured in later pics).

    Arriving today was Ramsey and Lee, one day ahead of their women. Ramsey is the guy who got married at TTR later in the week after we left. He is responsible for writing that portion of the TR. His username here is "Saram" so I suggest if you don't see a TR soon, send him a private message. (You're welcome, Ramsey!).

    Anyway, Ramsey and Lee show up early afternoon at the sexy pool, dressed all mid-western in jeans and shirts. WTF? I told them go change and join the party, but they said they had to do their chores first. Again, WTF? Apparently their women (who were arriving Monday) had given them some chores and a shopping list, so they were off to Walmart for 3 hours of falling prices and a fun bus ride. I was going to mock them until they asked if I needed anything. Nice gesture, guys!

    After what seemed like only 20 minutes, Ramsey and Lee arrived back at the pool dressed for the party. Ramsey's outfit was, as always, way over the top. His outfit screamed "LMFAO", and not just because we were actually laughing our *** off! Do you see any resemblance here?

    [​IMG]
    Upon seeing Ramsey in this outfit, Mrs. ATM started recruiting a posse of women to follow Ramsey on a hot lap around the pool. Yep, this was the precise moment the pool party got started this particular day.

    Typical sexy pool shenanigans and debauchery, followed by a quick nap for Mrs. ATM and more buffet dinner. This was the second year in a row (and third trip) we did not eat at any of the sit down restaurants. I can't sit that long, and the meals can be sobering. Nobody wants sober ATM. No fun at all.

    Ryan and I had to go back to my room for something, no idea what it was. Oh yeah, fireball, I remember now. Anyway, after a few nips of that Ryan mentions that we should really have eyeliner on. Why?, I ask. He never gave me an answer but I'll be damned if we weren't both coated in eyeliner by the time we left. I remember him saying, very seriously "ONLY DO THE BOTTOM OF THE EYE!!!" I followed his sage Boystown advice and did just that, the results of which will be evident in future Sheer night photos if you look closely. Or if you don't.

    Instead of going to Paty-O for sheer night we watched the show in Nice Shoes. I honestly have no idea what the show was but I suspect it was Anything Goes. I don't pay much attention anymore. But I did get some good pics that tell their own story:

    I'm not sure if Ryan got voted off the dance floor, or if he's peeing in the corner. You decide.

    [​IMG]

    It's pretty obvious I'm wearing more eyeliner than both of the ladies combined.
    [​IMG]

    There was this creepy lady grabbing everyone's asses all night. Yet nobody complained (sorry Jodi)

    [​IMG]

    I really can't tell who's more disappointed here, Ryan or Jody?

    [​IMG]

    Since Brandie was not here this year, I was determined to fill the void with lots of weird-angled, surprise photos. Useful only for a TR.

    [​IMG]

    There's some other non-PG shots that Mrs. ATM won't let me post. It was a fun night, complete with more Paty-O burgers and ATM speaker brought down for the after party. Great times as usual.

    Theresa, I couldn't believe the look of "WTF" on your face when I gently approached you and Tom in the hotel lobby. Mrs atm later said I should have announced myself as "stranger danger's husband". I could tell you were worn out from an early flight! Hope you guys had a great trip!

    Brandie, I blame you for this eyeliner addiction! It's very David Bowie of them.

    I have pretty much no memory of being in Nice Shoes in that wig and tutu. This year's Shitsow was one for the ages.

    I blame all the awesome newbies. Especially Jodi. [emoji12]

    Jeff you asked if I wanted you to blur my face but all I see is my ass lol.

    I keep staring, befuddled, at the peeing in the corner pic. My story,and I'm sticking to it, is that I was going for a drink.

    Theresa, your initial reaction was smart. Be afraid! Very very afraid! STRANGER DANGER!!!!!
