blown-eyed blodgers

This time next week, I will be in Austin, Texas, surrounded by insatiable, good-lookin' wimmen bloggers from all over the country. I'm looking forward to the trip and the chance to meet some people I've read for a long time but never encountered in the flesh before.

I hosted the first Jawja Blog Meet at Caruso's Restaurant in Dahlonega, Georgia back in 2003. That meet was a blast, especially after it carried over into Blood Mountain Cabins and earned us a "BE QUIET, DAMMIT!" warning from the proprietor. Since then, we've disgraced Athens, Helen and Jekyll Island with our presence, and we've not seen anyone killed yet, despite our fondness for guns and bullwhips. Most of the Usual Jawja Suspects will be in Austin, just to show those braggart Texicans how to run amok behave like true Southern bloggers.

I still intend to operate Acidman's Toenail Painting Salon, so ladies... plan on letting me... uh... do you. I may even branch out into Bikini Shaves while I'm at it. I have red toenail polish, and I'm bringing shaving cream and a new razor just in case. (Trust me, ladies... my hands are very steady now that I no longer drink alcohol.)

I have an extra room booked. I was hoping that the Acid Daughter would come to the meet, but I don't think she's going to make it. So, if you need a room, just let me know before I cancel that reservation. The one I still have on hold has two queen-sized beds, so it'll hold about 12 bloggers if they're really good friends...

I get all tingly just thinking about it. I hope to see you there.

(UPDATE: I just hope that this guy isn't planning on driving to Texas. But if he does, I want to take his ride for a spin.)


I'm truly looking forward to finally meeting you in real time, Rob. Mamamontezz had nothing but good things to say about the party in Helen, and having been a member of the Rott these past two years, I'm sure our group will match the Jawja Bloggers in intensity and ribaldry. Austin will never be the same.

Wish to God I had the $$$ to do it.
The BEST red toe nail polis is made by OPI and it's called "I'm really not a waitress".
