Now Accepting Nominations

Image Hosted by ImageShack.usBlogAsheville's monthly somethin'-somethin' and Freedom March is coming up on October 28th. As of now we don't have a proper title or a proper venue for the gathering. Use this as a thread to figure out what's what. Also, try to answer the following questions:


Will Edgy Mama have yet another out-of-town engagement?
Will Brian Hopkins arrive before nine?
Will Johnny Lemuria, the orange-shirted blogenthusiast of Temple of the New Flesh, come again even though the last try was fruitless?
Will the groupies that attended last time grow or shrink in number?
Will we finally see some of the lurking wallflowers on the blogroll?
When are you going to be able to go into a store and get what you want with your good looks?

EM will be there.

BH will not arrive before nine.

Johnny, because of the holiday's proximity, I suggest we all attend in costume--should make us easy to spot.

We have groupies? Cool.

Re: Wallflowers: EM does have three friends-- occasional A'ville blogger--whom I'll invite to see if we can inspire them to consistency.

In order to get what you want based on good looks, you have to dress the part, Screwy. I have the perfect outfit in mind for you.

How about we meet at the Asheville Brewing Company on Coxe? Lots of room, inside and out, not crowded, good beer. Just a suggestion.

Screwy Hoolie said...

Asheville Brewing Co. sounds great to me.

It'll be good to see you again, AF, and drag your blogflowers along with you.

Uptown Ruler said...

asheville brewing company is good....


now for a name of the gathering...

Brian Hopkins said...

You are correct I will not arrive before 9, lol

Edgy Mama said...

I swear that every once in a while I leave a comment here that never fricking shows up--weird.

How about Ash Vegas Costume Ball and Beer Guzzler?

Oh, and Asheville Brewing has wireless now! As do I!

Uptown Ruler said...

woot!

FWIW, I am having a party on Thursday, October 27. You are all invited. It is a dinner and pumpkin carving party. Email me - it's in the profile on the blog - for directions.

Screwy Hoolie said...

I'm more partial to costume guzzler and beer ball

...or...

ball guzzler and beer costume

But if you're looking for four benign words that sound distasteful no matter which combination one uses them in...

milk sweat shake ball

Go ahead...try it.

I nominate BlogHain and Freedom March

Uptown Ruler said...

disco, crisco, naked twister and rum party?





thks for invite, goth!

Sweet Tea said...

Wasn't JL reported to be wearing a green shirt?

I'll have to come back to this post in a bit and put in my two cents...

I might be able to make it... I'll check my daytimer.

syntax said...

"bloghain"... heh heh heh

"dia de los mentos" might be fun as well.

Sweet Tea said...

Feast of Souls, Bloggy Style

Just kidding. I'm not very good at the name thing. I'm game for where ever. I don't think I've ever been to the Brewing Company on Coxe. I trust EM's judgement.

Goth, Were you suggesting a blog party meets Hangover House fusion? That might be fun too.

I don't care, just as long as I can get a babysitter and wear a tutu.

Can't make it, going to Bryson City to take the tourist train, trout fish and see if there are any chicken fighters over there. Also heard about a cool outdoor fishing gear sale at a place called NOC with blue grass music and american food! Gotta check it out!

Edgy Mama said...

Hey Tea,
I'll be in a tutu as well. Should we coordinate?

Screwy Hoolie said...

I take it you found the costume featured at your site?

It sounds like we're agreed?

All BlogHallow's Eve Beatnik Brew and Autumn Ale Ween.

i'll bring my sister. she is royalty. her name is Chimay Omegang Allagash the Third.

ash said...

but i like the Ashvegas Ball Guzzling and Tutu Tiperary thing, too

Sweet Tea said...

I can't vote!!! I can't decide! I've been staring at this post all day and I just can't decide on one.

Mine, of course, was a horrible joke.

I think that out of all of the nominations that these two actually have something to do with what we'll all be doing. Though, do the titles ever really match?

Ash Vegas Costume Ball and Beer Guzzler
(Though this one wasn't actually on the ballot...I like it.)

Sweet Tea said...

EM, If all goes as planned, I'll be in a pink tutu with red tights, red wings and, of course, any other last minute faerie embellishments I may pick up.

Screwy Hoolie said...

Costume, Beer, and Ball Guzzler it is!

Edgy Mama said...

Oh Tea, I don't actually have a tutu. But your costume sounds great!

I'm going to dive into the kids' costume box and see if I can come up with something...

Sweet Tea said...

I thought it may have been a joke - but I just didn't know. Better play it safe and risk being silly than to be rude.

Edgy Mama said...

Are you kidding, Tea? I love to play dress-up. I'm thrilled that you'd consider it as well. Particularly as I doubt any of the guys will be creative or uninhibited enough to come in costume(yes, that's a challenge).

Screwy Hoolie said...

Consider me costumed.

Uptown Ruler said...

bah humbug, oh wait that's christmas, blech!

Sweet Tea said...

Oh, goody! This shall be fun. I can't wait to see what blogashevillians come dressed as.
