Official Kazoo Blogger meetup?

31 March, 2008

Official K’zoo Blogger meetup? first notice

Dr Virago wanted somebody else to organize the festivities this year. I think it would be great to go out for drinks. I plan to go out for drinks. But evenings are harder to plan. So … I suggest that we have one official meetup, and maybe a few other “if anybody is around at X, I’ll be there” meetups. Speaking of which, I think Karl Steele is the only blogger I’ve ever seen at the cheap wine hours (not counting Cranky, but I spend as much time as possible hanging out with my academic sib).

But anyway — providing the same coffee shop is still available (it’s in the building with the dining hall, right?) from around 7:30 till whenever on Friday morning?

Yeah, it’s vague. Sue me and/or help with the details. All I know is that I drag my ass out of bed and either get on the shuttle or meet up with NK for a ride, because she always has a car, and we toodle off and I follow other bleary-eyed medievalists who take over a huge space and gain the glares of our peers.

    Works for me!

    Sounds good. (I’m always at the wine hour too, btw, but I’m always chasing around trying to find the people I’ve arranged to meet up with while fending off crowd-induced panic. I never learn.)

    I can make it, though I promise to fold far earlier than “whatever” since we’re probably bringing at least one kid along with us.

    Great! I won’t be able to get to k’zoo until Friday evening, so I’ll be missing the morning meet-up. That was making me sad. But this makes me happy! –As long as the alcoholic meet-up is on Friday or Saturday and not Thursday, that is.

    Dang, I wish I could be there. I’ll just sit at home and drink and pretend I’m hanging out with y’all.

    I should be there.

    I don’t intend to be there, but stranger things have happened.

    Cranky, you are so in trouble, but I understand. But it won’t be Kazoo without you!!! No LDW? No academic sib?

    This time, I aim to make sure I at least get hold of people by texting. Last time, I found Cranky that way when i was at the wrong wine hour!

    Have a drink for me, ADM!

    Oh, I’ll definitely be at the wine hour. It’s traditional for me to do all my drinking for the year in my 4 days at Kzoo. It’s just more efficient that way….And now back to grading jail, and then to ‘writing my kzoo paper’ jail, and then, on the flight over, MORE grading jail…

    Mug Shots is the name of the coffee shop.And I’m not at the wine hours, as I’m working, but I’m up for any alcoholic evening excursion if you let me know the details!

    I’ll try to make for the Friday AM, folks as last year MacAllister Stone, and TNH.Definitely up for an evening event though.

    Sorry I’m getting on this late, but I’ll be there, with bells on. Just don’t try to talk to me until I actually have my coffee in hand.

    Though I’ve been MIA this semester (semester from hell). I’ll be there Friday morning, and drinks Friday or sat sounds great.
