Count Me In



It's that time again kids! So, do your do, pull out your finery and come on out for our biggest, brashest, bawdiest, blogfest yet. Click comment(s) below and let us know that you and yours plan to join with the rest of the ultra-creative local blogarati as we rock the Appalachians.



It has been brought to my attention that while creating graphics and promotional materials over the past three years supporting BlogAsheville's annual extravablogiversapaloozathon, that I have used two different spellings for the name of the event. While it's true that some of the ads use the more traditional blogi and others use the bloga alternate, this is simply representative of the evolving nature of language. According to the most recent complete Oxford English Dictionary, extravablogiversaloozathon was indeed the original spelling but extravablogaversapaloozathon came into common usage at nearly the same time and is listed as a common and perfectly acceptable alternate spelling. So there!

I need to hand the Staff of Power to some trusted intermediary because I honestly cannot promise to be there. I'm moving that weekend among other crazy responsibilities and I think the possibility that I'm going to just collapse that evening on some heap of boxes and whimper is too great to risk the Staff of Power. So, who wants to hold it until the 27th? Gordon? Let me know.

Doug Gibson said...

Rich said...

Is this a kid-friendly event?

Gordon Smith said...

Rich,

There will be beer and foul language. There will be rambunctious behavior.

So I guess it depends on your kid!

Rich said...

He's one year old. Never too young to learn!!!

obiwan said...

Try to be there.

Thanks for the invitation.

geniemuse said...

Will do my best to be there. Gordon, thanks for tracking me down -- I've been out of the loop.

See you there.

Julie said...

If the Beer Gods allow, I will be there.

Supermom said...

Thanks for the invite. Since I just had baby #4, 21 weeks ago I will try my best to make it.
I am new to BlogAsheville and would love to put some faces to blogs!

I saw that Rich asked if it would be a kid friendly event....I don't think I'd have to worry about the baby grabbing a beer and cussing like a sailor, just yet.

Michelle :)

Gratuitous said...

Even I get to go! All it took was a hefty beer bribe!

hi!

Thank you for the invite. I wish I could go. Although I blog about Asheville and lived there most of my life, I now live in Raleigh.

I hope that these meetups are more frequent though, as I would like to attend one.

John Morris
Goodnight, Asheville!
