One More On Da Meet

...and then I'll shut up about it. For a while anyway.

We have about 14 attending, which is most excellent, a few newbies, a few I haven't seen in a while, and some of the tried and trues.

I am excited, and moreso pleased that you peeps took the 72 hour deadline seriously. The rooms are no longer being held for us, but if you haven't booked and are interested in going, by all means, give the Kristy a call and jump on board as long as there is availability.... the sooner the better. And I'm betting good ol Mark can be sweet talked into honoring the discounted rate, even though technically, the moment has passed. He has a soft spot, you see, for half drunken lunatics who spend their afternoons loitering in his parking lot, attempting to hit half a ball with a broomstick.

Regarding the availablity, I am considering giving up my room in favor of a cabin. So if you can't get in, let me know, and I may bequeath my res. ...assuming I haven't waited too late to get the cabin, of course.

One of these days I'm going to get to one of those half drunken lunatics meets. Oops! I mean the Southeast Writer's Conference.

Have fun and take a few pics, I enjoy reading about it all.

Cabin? We are waiting for the hot tub a go-go party invite, Key.

Sam made me say that.

I'm down with Vsick...Cabin? Cool with me.

Oh, they have some kick ass cabins up there.

Helen got hit by a tornado last night. Looks like it wasn't too terribly bad..the outlet mall got hit and I wouldn't count on the econolodge as a back up anymore. Those folks are sweating now..that happened way too close to Oktoberfest.

I just saw on TV that the Kristy roof was gone in storm and several rooms are torned up, Cat

And I just called and they didn't answer the phone.

The power and phone lines are out city-wide in Helen, but the Econolodge was the only hotel mentioned in the articles as having sustained major damages. So we prolly koo. They'll scramble to prepare for Oktoberfest anyhow.

I'm sure Mark will be on the other end of those lines as soon as they are operating. As he told me re his 18 hr work days, "I have many kids to feed!"

You mean there is still TIME? Ok, yes, I'm so totally behind the 8-ball. And pretty much everything else. Leslie said I could room with her but I'd have to leave handsome and home. Hmm...you mean there's still time? I so need to get back on the meds.

Well you could always reschedule it for next month, then maybe I could make it!

Moogie has an 8-ball? I'm down middat.

Posted by: Velociman at August 30, 2005 09:35 PM

Who said you have to leave OWW at home? Not moi. Drag him along. And I'll bring Buckaroo Bonsai. THAT will give people something to talk about!

Leslie, Leslie..my dear girl. Do you know what you are saying? I already will never live down the last blog meet because, how shall we say, I was three sheets to the wind? I was lucky to escape with my 8 balls intact, because Vman was coveting them, along with his red hat. Luckily, they were in my pocket.

People will definitely wag their tongues on that one (if OWW were to come along too). Oh, and, it's prudent to admit here that I snore.

Are we still on then? Does that mean the men would share a bed?

Posted by: Moogie at August 31, 2005 07:52 PM

Hey now.

Posted by: Velociman at August 31, 2005 09:26 PM

Moogie --

1. If there's anyone over the age of 30 that doesn't snore, I'd really like to meet them.

2. Who says we have to work that out now?

3. 3 sheets? If there are four of us, we'll need 4 sheets. Wind? We're all old. If it ain't there, a few beers and the boys will provide.

4. V-Man. "Hey now."??? Darlin', we're just getting started...

Posted by: Omnibus Driver at August 31, 2005 11:28 PM

Oh, yeah. Bring the 8-ball. I've got questions...

Posted by: Omnibus Driver at August 31, 2005 11:36 PM

Y'all have fun.
