creating the space

And so it begins.

In a few short hours I will start welcoming the first of the brave bloggers to traverse the Rockies, bringing with them an appetite for words and music, food and libations, creativity and camaraderie.

It's a fairly loose agenda, for a convention. We have scheduled a couple of Wordfest events, along with a Friday night curry cook-off, and a Sunday brunch to fuel an afternoon of putting a roomful of creative minds together, just to see what happens.

Oh sure there will be some sight-seeing and there are bound to be some excursions to book stores and record stores. A few conventioneers may even end up sporting some new tattoos or piercings. Heck, there may even be a bonfire in the backyard if they play their cards right. Piling onto the chesterfield to watch DVDs or heading down to see what's playing at the art house theatre are distinct possibilities as well.

But I'm mostly looking forward to hearing some tales.

I really should live blog this thing, shouldn't I?

Blog con? I had no idea. Then again, I'm still digesting the fact that some witch (not to demean witches) named Pamela Geller is able to afford a chichi Manhattan apartment by blogging. Your group seems more wholesome. Any group seems more wholesome.

No time to blog. Only time to listen to hilarious comedy albums. :)

We are wholely wholesome, Murr Brewster, but really must do something about that so that we can get that chichi Manhattan apartment in which to host the next one.

Too much laughter, Al! But what else are you going to do when you look at all that snow?

I hope you are all having a magnificent time. I'm envious beyond my abilities to express. I'll make it someday, or else Blog Con will come to me. And yes, you should live blog.

You'll need to come to the next one, Kelly.

It's been utterly magnificent, John. Ironically, for a Blogger Convention, I have not even need near the computer for the past few days.
You must be at the next one, though.
