Blogger BBQ Thanksgiving!



Here's what the 2006 Christmas Blogger Meetup Planning committee looks like! Right purty like a Christmas card too. We do have a location scouted out (stay tuned) - We're just trying to figure out the logistics of having the ten newest bloggers sing in the Christmas Talent Show. Putting a band together should be easy.

From L to R : (F) Hutchmo, Brilliant | Girl | Jag, (R) Busy Mom, CeeElCee, Linda and Sarcasto.

It was an honor to finally meet Jag - I've been a big fan of her writing and jabs at life on her blog. She holds it together pretty good even if she's no longer on TV. East Nashville girls are a tough breed and fun to read as well.

I met Jag's friend Linda also; we both have lab/retreiver dogs so that was cool to make a connection there. I think the next Blogger Meetup should include dogs (no cats). CeeElCee told me about a little park across from the downtown library where 10,000 dogs (and winos) poop. Perhaps Centennial Park is where we should meet in the spring. They do have WiFi for those purists who insist on live blogging.

Jag and Linda have been added to the Mothership sidebar - 29 down, 71 more bloggers to break a BBQ rib with. I'll have to see what my Doctor says about my pork consumption... In 2007, I'm migrating over to chicken, with Mac 'n' cheese and green beans.

I found out today that Sarcasto lives nearby in the 'hood and about his online conflict resolutions; Busy Mom could use a new laptop from MacAuthority; CeeElCee is over his flu like funk and (small world) Huthmo's son is best friends with my son!

Blogger worlds collide indeed.

Only at the Mothership.

The Dog Park meet up is a genius idea, except they won't let pit bulls in. That leaves out Mrs. Wigglebottom and Sarcastro. Not his dog. Sarcastro.

Maybe we'll have two dog-ups.

Busy Mom said...

Bwahahahaha!!

Apparently, I don't need another chin for Chirstmas, though.

I rather like Jag's barrett. I'm bummed I didn't make it today but will definitely look forward to whatever event you're planning, barring dog and Sarcastro poop.

Lynnster said...

What a fine looking bunch that is! And all apparently VERY happy! :)

Kate O' said...

Oooh, so envious of you all! Wish I could have been there.

Jackson said...

Damn, I would have been there had I been paying attention. Luckily it looks like the party planning is in good hands.

Why isn't the new vegan on the committee? Your meat-ups are discriminatory! :)

What's this about new bloggers having to sing????

Ginger said...

Can't wait to see what you guys have cooked up! Look forward to meeting more of the good blogging folk. :-)

As I have been told I'm an honarary member of the Nashville brigade, let me know what you guys decide.

jag said...

Oooh, you guys must have have made some big decisions after I left for work. What's the plan? Do we need to have a follow up meeting with more notice so more people can attend?

We got drunk on he Mothership hot sauce... the wheels are turning... I'm just the guy with the camera, BUT I'd like to see the Blogger Meetup happen very soon before holiday busyness sets in.

Again, I beg not to do it on the 9th.

Wasn't Kathy T. planning something or did I dream that?

Malia said...

I second Sista, not the 9th!

I was so going to be there yestereday but the pesky chore of needing to take a shower and get dressed got in the way of me getting out of the house yesterday!
