Where The Helluv-I Been?

Mostly Georgia, more and more Tennessee, and just a dash of Vegas.

The latter was a biz convention. Sorta optional. So I wasn't going to go, as my schedule was already bursting with more mundane tasks, but I made the sacrifice for my fellow blogger. Must-have research for our '07 coordinator. Right? Sounds good.

My sacrifice included a sweet suite (on them), and fat-free chips distributed in these little velvet bags upon registration. (Enough to keep me at the roulette table for 3+ hours.)

Still, the timing sucked, so I had to rush the trip, but I made time to scope the - by my standards - unblogmeetified land, and give the nice folks a 12 month head up that the bloggas is coming. (These peeps being demure by comparison, they might want to reconsider that whole comping drinks on the casino floor thing.)

Since my return, I have been frantically trying to wind up the paperwork end of the state straddling career jump/leap of faith, so that I can move on to more pressing issues, like ya know, blogging and beaching.

Typically, that would suffice as a conclusion in my post-it handbook, but before I jump state again, I offer advice of utmost import: Do NOT, I beg you, take your cell phone to a few blogmeets, loan your cell phone to your cleavage-chasing brother, take your cell phone to Vegas, then come back to town, realize razors are on sale, upgrade, and then do the logical thing: give old cell phone to daughter.

Don't do that. (Or if you do... Clean out the picture cache first.)

Whoa! Welcome back, Key!

I'm looking forward to making out there next year. Flee Vegas residents... flee.

It's alive! Alive!

And I wants me some Chick'm!

Welcome back! And speaking of blogmeets, is Blogtoberfest on again this year?

Posted by: Omnibus Driver at May 24, 2006 02:51 PM

Oh right....Blogtoberfest! Yes well, does it have to be October? You see, Helen is a beautiful venue for a New Year's Eve partay. Christmas lights still up, drunkards by the river kissing strangers at midnight, and all without the crowds of October. (Of course, I wouldn't be opposed to going twice...)

I'm up for ANY excuse to go to Helen and hang with the blown-eyed bunch!

It's a trap... a trap, I tell ya!!!

I mean, if "what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas... they'll never let us leave!

Being that we're "happenin' " kind of folks, and all that.

Still, it's a risk I'd be willing to take. Pray my successes in the months to come, so that I mightest join thee.

Why does your strapline at the top say: "keymonroe [at] alltel [dot] net" while your About me in the left hand menu say "keymonroe at gmail dot com".
Touch of schizophrenia?

Nah, touch of techtardedness! Ya see, the banner was gifted to me, so though I have switched to gmail, I know not how to change that overhead. Though both are valid at present, the alltel one has a short life.

(But I do thank you for making a public mockery my tech challengedness.)

I am no longer allowed to watch Bum Fights while free-basing Liquid Plumber out of a Mr. Coffee machine.
