A "Blog-Con" in my mind

What if we had some big blogger convention? I know, I'm a dork. I can just picture us all in some big convention center with our little "Hi, my name is" stickers on, with our blogger profile names. So I'd be like "Oh, look over there! It's SayUnderpants, awesome!" and she'd be like "but I have a real name, and you already know it" but I'd still want to call people by their blogger names. I'd try to hug all of you people that I read and comment back and forth with because I love you in a non-creepy way! It would be so cool. Or I would just be a wallflower, I don't know. I hope you'd talk to me...
I'd find out where Dave and Dwight were hanging out cause that's where the laughter and goodies would be. Yossarian would be nowhere to be found and people would be asking about him. "Oh, I thought I saw him with XTX... no maybe he's with Blush... no, maybe they're all together and they didn't invite the rest of us!" Damn!
And of course I'd want to hang out with Lovely Lisa who I'm probably closest in geographical location to, plus we could giggle and talk about boys and music and stuff.
There would be plenty of booze and smoke and snacks and music and all that good stuff. But then maybe we wouldn't want to blog about it afterward because the mystery would be revealed and it wouldn't be the same. Then again it's just a crazy idea that I am imagining because I don't have a lot of friends in real life. Don't worry, I'm not a stalker, just a dork.

But yeah, it would be sweet. Mingle! Make awkward comments! Talk amongst yourselves!

*if I didn't mention your blog, don't be offended - it's not that I don't think you're wonderful too, it's just I either don't know you as well, I don't know what to say, or I'm trying not to embarrass myself further...

I met a really great friend here in Houston. He had to move to find a new job because the Houston Chronicle fired him for his blog. I think the great thing about meeting people off of the blogs...the ice is already broken. Im more real and honest on my blogs than I am anywhere else...mainly because I hope no one in my real life ever reads it.

Dave said...

Oh, and if you ever get a chance to get stoned with me and Roman, you better not pass it up! Its the best most surreal time you will ever have.

i think it'd be pretty safe to bet Yossarian and I would be making out in a janitorial supply closet somewhere.

Dave said...

I've decided we should have it in Vegas, next year in June.

Dwight Chisholm said...

I'll invite Roman. He sounds cool.

The Big Cheese said...

Trust me when I say that I am much cooler when I am not in person.

I would love to go to one of these conventions. Start one up! Take charge... C'mon! You can do it...

Oh, THAT day? I'm a little busy that day.. Could you try the Wednesday? Weekdays aren't good for anyone else?

Oh, I guess I can't go then...
