the night of the spitting cat

Just a reminder to you all… Some of us local bloggers will be getting together between 7:00 and 9:00 this Friday evening at Frenchie’s. Some of that time will be spent discussing how we can better coordinate our coverage of local politics, but I suspect that most of it will just be spent chatting about our blogs and other bullshit. If you’d like to join us, please feel free to drop by, even if you don’t (yet) have a blog of your own.

    first off, way to steal the artwork i stole, you damned stealer.

    second, what are everyone’s thoughts on name tags? last time you had one of these functions, i was lost in a sea of strangers, that i would have spoken with if i had had a url to match with their face. I even had trouble identifying people who had posted photos on their sites, as blogs tend to add around 10 pounds to one’s appearance.

    i think i have a stack of ‘hello, my name is:’ stickers someplace, or alternately we could each try to wear a costume which summarizes the theme of our weblog.

    third, and last, i should say that from my perspective the proposed schedule is merely a rough guide, and that late hangers-on should be encouraged not to turn into pumpkins at nine (‘happy’ hour doesn’t start there until 10, btw).

    Actually, Brett, and it pains me to say this… there is no 10:00 happy hour on Fridays. Or at least there didn’t used to be… However, there’s no rule saying we have to stay at Frenchie’s. We could always pack up and migrate, as Moses did, toward cheaper beer…. As for nametags, I like the idea. We should also, I think, wear hairnets… As for seatling the stolen image, I’m sorry. I meant to give you credit, but then forgot. I promise, however, that there’s a big feature on “my friend Brett” coming up very soon. I think it will more than make up for any theft that may have occurred.

    I’d love to join you and could even bring my own nametag, but I’m going to be hanging in downtown Detroit getting some culture listening to the DSO play some fabulous 20th century music. I hope to catch you next time – even though I don’t really have a blog.

    too bad I destroyed my “Hello My Blog Is” nametag from sxsw… =)

    TGIF, then. I think a relocation might be in order at nine. we can call it an afterprom, afterglow, exodus, whatever. Aubrees across the street has molson in 25 ounce mugs for 2.50 all month. that’s only .10 per ounce. AND THAT’S YOUR MONEY!!!

    I’ll bring some stickers along. Also, if anyone has little foil stars, we could put them on eachother’s foreheads when we say something clever.

    helmets. hmm.

    kathleen- sorry you can’t make it. i hope when DSO says they’re playing 20th century music, they’re referring to george gershwin and not Milli Vanilli, for your sake.

    note to anyone planning on attending: if mark claims to see a mouse in the bar, please play along with his delusion.

    T minus 6.5 hours ’til Blog-off.

    You kids be careful out there. Is there a driver designated for this outing?

    thankfully we live in a very walkable community, at least in respect to bars. we could also end the night with a historical reenactment of 19th century drunkards sleeping on frog island.

    any ann arborites in attendance can just take the interurban home.

    Mark, here’s my very incomplete attempt at photo coverage of the event, if you needed documentation for legal purposes.

    Do you say that based upon on his last post? If so, I can direct you to others that are better… Or, were you perhaps in the bathroom as he was taking photos? If that’s the case, I can see where you’re coming from…

    Two T’s just like hall of famer George Brett. Best third baseman ever! Nobody remembers that pesky pine tar incident anymore.

    My favorite 2T Bret will always be Brett Somers… Sorry, local Brett.

    I think that Brett is a man, baby!

    I’ll have you know that i watched the match game everyday when i was little, and found brett somers a huge point of confusion to my gender identity. so was charles nelson reilly, for that matter.

    as a child in the 1970’s, the most common schoolyard teasing i got was kids calling me ‘beretta’.

    thank you for letting me get all this off my chest.

    following that link, i just saw that brett somers is touring now with one woman show, which as we’ve discussed here, is coincidentally how the great Bea Arthur is also spending her time.

    Time to find some Brett Somers wallpaper for the desktop of the old computin’ machine.

    But none of them satisfy my piss fetish.

    (note: This relates to an old thread that somehow, with the introduction of an adult acress, morphed into a discussion about releaving ones self on Bea Arthur… For the record, I do not love piss. I am only mildly fond of it.)
