A Single Southern Guy In America

Another Flavor of Blogger Meet-Ups

Will Rogers once said, "All I know is what I read in the papers."

Well, I wasn't there, so I can go only on what I read.

It seems like when bloggers meet in LA, even the ultra conservative types, they don't party nearly as hard fellowship with abandon nearly to the extent that Jawja bloggers do it. I mean, champagne chicken? The first meal I recall at Athens was a big ole steaming plate of nachos, heavy on the grease, cheese, and everything you might imagine would have caused an ex-president to require a quadruple bypass.

Of course, when they ventured out to eat, they had Armenian prepared Arab food in a strip mall. When Kelley, Dax, and I first met up, we also ate at a strip mall restaurant in the proximity of Alpharetta/Dunwoody, GA. Our fare was also ethnic. It was Mexican food prepared by Mexicans. I hear conservatives on the left coast don't like Mexican food. We like it so much, we get invited behind the bar to hold bottles of tequila and such.

They're photographic evidence seems curiously post-modern. Our photographic evidence is decidedly post-primitive (in the cabin on Blood Mountain) or retro (pictures in front of an IHOP).

Of course, I'd be terribly remiss if I failed to compare their drinking binges and ours.

Theirs: Vodka. Cigars. Beers. Champagne chicken.

Ours: Vodka, Scotch, Rum, Beers (from Newcastle down to PBR), and, of course, corn likker and homemade peach brandy. Cigarettes, cigars, cloves, and guns--in the party room, owned, not rented. Chicken soft tacos, beef nachos, pizza, chips, salsa, beer (yes, we count beer as food, also) breakfast including everything fried except the pancakes and biscuits, oh, and grits, too.

Still, it looks like they had a good time, and it seems like they will include some guns (albeit rented ones) before it's all over. I'm sure they'll outgrow playing with stuffed dolls and playing with cats as they further enhance their blogger meet-up skills. In any event, I'd like to extend a warm invitation for any or all of them to join the Jawja bloggers at the next meet, April 15 and 16, on Jekyll Island. It's the Wreckyll in Jekyll aka the "Georgia Writers Workshop." Heh.
