But I digress. That's not what I've been thinking about.
I was talking on the phone to a lovely blogger lady. And we were talking about how jealous we were of the NYC bloggers and how they get to meet each other and hang out and bump into each other at Trader Joe's and stuff and nonsense. We hate them. We hate them and their large city that all the cool people live in.
No. I'm lying. We love them. We just wish that we could do the same thing. Meet all our favorite bloggers and sit around and hang out and eat and drink and dish. We mused that someone should win the lottery and pay for a big blogger bash.
But what I was thinking was this: why do we have to wait so long? Why can't we organize something now?
Ok, so I'm not thinking that next weekend we should all fly to Key Largo. But what about planning something for this next year? Say, January? The tricky thing about timing would be who wants to attend and if they're pregnant and when their due date is. So I'm way open with timing here. But it needs to be far enough out that I can save up my pennies.
What I'm thinking is this: those of us who want to all fly someplace on one weekend. I was thinking Vegas because flights to Vegas are usually cheap. But it would depend on who wanted to come. If someone wanted to open their house for everyone to crash that would also be a good idea. Ideally, you would all come to MY house! I have a lot of room and a big shower. I have 3 spare beds plus a couch and loveseat and a hammock. I would lovingly reheat frozen foods for everyone and we would sit around and drink and talk and squeal. If people came in the winter then people who liked to ski and/or snowboard could go do so. I'm pretty close to several ski slopes. Those of us who don't ski could sit around and drink hot chocolate and roast marshmellows over my 1950's gas log with the carcinogenic sparkles. It would be great!
Or we could have this thing somewhere else. Anyone want to volunteer their house? Anybody like the idea of Vegas? Are there any other cities that have regular cheap flights?
