Thanks to all!!

And I have two partially full kegs on my front porch. Please come by with growlers, pitchers, whatever, and take some Gaelic or Scotch Ale--or both.

And thank you for voting me "Best Writing." Touched my heart.

Christopher C. NC said...

A wonderful palooza. Good job ya'll.

Thunder Pig said...

You guys just fail to recognize my "superior design" and are jealous.


Kelby said...

Very cool! Thanks so much! I wish I could have been at the party, though. Life of a mom who can't find a @!*&(!* babysitter. Edgy Mama, who do YOU use?

Edgy Mama said...

I guard the identities of my sitters.

Actually, we have someone who loves to hang with our kids, but she has a real job and can only work the occasional weekend. I book her weeks in advance!

Helen and i had a great time - and met many new bloggers and had only a short time with old friends... partly because we got there late, but it was WONDERFUL and i thank Gordon, Jennifer, Ann and everyone for making it a real hoot!

Thanks to all who voted - even those who voted for me! :)

petullant said...

Thanks to all you hard working organizers - I had a fantastic time!

Also, as I was handed the jacket I was given as a prize for the "Blogger You'd Most Like To See Naked" Edgy Mama told me it was to cover up my nudity with. When I got home, I noticed that jacket had a broken zipper. Sly, Blog Asheville, so sly.

Gratuitous said...

Yeah, you'uns know how to party. Scarily. I'm glad I'm not the only one who woke up wondering if my body had been snatched. Great party, great people, great time. A lurker like me could get used to hangin' with you intellectuals, you slackers, you folks who care about the world and aren't shy about forcing it on the rest of us. Y'all are every bit as ridiculous as I'd hoped.
