Extravablogiversapaloozathon 2006


-Photograph by Zen-

Well...One year has come and gone here at BlogAsheville, and last night we gathered together at the beautiful home of Edgy Mama and her Envirospouse (who gave wonderful and extensive tours of their jealousy-producing garden in the backyard; we were all eating sugarsnap peas off the vine).

Jolt Wagon played through the night, and I should say, if you haven't seen these guys, you should!

Bloggers came from throughout the land. In attendance, and please shoot me an email here at BlogAsheville if I leave someone out (I'll add you!), were the following: Modern Peasant, Edgy Mama, Domestic Bliss, 3 of the Scrutiny Hooligans, Ashvegas, Bird on the Moon, Hangover Journals, Brainshrub, Restless Mama, The Syntax of Things, Lies and Myths, Virtual Inanity, Undercover Blue, How to Take a Fall,
and Urbantrail/AshevillePubCrawl.

It was great to meet some new bloggers last night, and it nice spending time with those other folks (you know who you are!) who came to help us celebrate our first year in cyberspace.

I'm sure some pictures of the event will be posted when folks sufficiently recover; and I will try to either make a Nominee/Winners button for the 2006 BlogAsheville Awards, or beg Jim Jenkins to do it.

Wow, Uptown. You are on it this morning. I'm just getting moving. Kicking over beer bottles jut to get out of bed.

Thanks to those who voted for me. I'm honored to be included with such greatness! (And happy I didn't need to get nekkid as part of the show--though I'm looking forward to having all the SH bloggers in one place some time).

Susan said...

Good morning, party people! Thank you for the award.

now that the room isn't spinning so fast anymore, i can tell you that both bliss and i had a great time. it's always a pleasure to see everyone!

jolt wagon were excellent as well - anyone who covers camper van beethoven's "ambiguity song" is automatically okay in my book.

Jim Jenkins said...

Congratulations all! I'm so sorry that I missed the party. I can't wait to hear all about it.

Photoshopping is about the most athletic thing that I do these days so imagine my surprise when I discovered that I'd somehow managed to tear the cartilage in my right knee. So I find myself cranky, bored and frustrated, hopped up on opiates and very sad that I couldn't be there last night.

On the up side, my daughter is bringing the Father's Day party to me.

Happy Father's Day, boys!

just seconding all the emotions.
thanks for opening your house to us, EM.
thanks to the hooligans for always rocking.
loved hanging with you all, and we missed you sorely, Jimbo.

Edgy Mama said...

You were missed, Jim!

Thanks for the "note," and the giftee!

Eddo said...
