What? You haven’t been to a BlogathonATX yet? Well, me neither. So I will be extra attentive on September 15th as the new kid. That is, until we take a cake break and I laugh uncontrollably from the sugar rush and then fall asleep.
“Who’s that girl snoring on her laptop?”
“I don’t know. She mumbled something about WordPress and then started talking about Breaking Bad and then just passed out. I hope she’s not on drugs.”
“And why is she wearing a Jamaican dreadlock hat with Scottie dog pajamas?”
This brings up a good point—what does one wear to Blogathon? I have a pair of jeans that feel extra bloggity. I guess I’ll just pair those with a shirt that best hides cake stains. And some type of old lady wig…you know, just artificial hip-ster casual. I hear that’s the look these days.
I have a short list of things I’d like to accomplish at BlogathonATX. A few blog tweaks, learn some techie skills, and get some renewed writing inspiration. But mostly I am looking forward to meeting people. I’ll tell you the same thing I told my parents when I was failing high school chemistry: I’m not here to learn so much as to make friends. Deal with it. Get out of my room!
