Just a deuce of quick notes here for all of you...
Yes, the day nears! Dave will be in Chi-Town this weekend and, on Saturday, a bunch of us bloggers will be getting together at a place called Piece in Wicker Park/Bucktown for pizza, beer, and general nothingness.
So far, it will be Dave, Jenny, RW, Chanakin (I think), Mocha (I think), Gary (perhaps), and myself. In terms of non-bloggers, Katie is going to be there as well as my brother and sister-in-law for added fun.
I think there might be someone that I'm missing on that list. In fact, I'm pretty convinced I'm missing someone. If you are that someone, I apologize. Just let me know.
I love agenda-less get togethers.
And this is going to be one cool group of blogger peeps.
It's still open to anyone who wants to come on by. Just let us know so we can plan on an extra seat or two.
International _____ Day
I've become a contributor at a site known as International _____ Day. This is a fun little site that seeks to make a holiday out of every day of the year.
They took the month of May off for whatever reason. But now the site is returning and the number of contributing writers has bumped up from six to 10.
My contributions will be up on June 2, 11, and 22 and I'm quite proud of them. I hope you enjoy them as well.
I will probably devote a little time each week to highlight the coming week's holidays. So here's what we've got so far for the coming week...
- Thursday, June 1 - International Be Ferris Bueller Day
- Friday, June 2 - International Banana in the Tailpipe Day
- Saturday, June 3 - International Styrofoam Day
- Sunday, June 4 - International Disconnect Day
- Monday, June 5 - International Chuck Norris Day
I'd provide links to them, but, obviously, these posts won't go live until their given day. So add the site to your aggregator and check for new posts each day.
Oh, and I'm taking suggestions for July. I'm trying to stick to a funny movie/food theme and I will need scenes that have some good dialogue as that plays into each of my posts.
