The Best Laid Plans...

Damn, someone stop this woman before she travels again!!

Christina of Feisty Repartee is on a blogmeet rampage! I can only assume the earth-shattering disappointment of not being able to attend the Texas Blogfest in March has addled her brain, and she's trying to make up for it in a whirlwind of blogmeets around the country!

I would have called it quits after the Wreckyll in Jekyll, judging from the reports of that intoxi-fest. Nevertheless, our intrepid bloginatrix heads first for San Antone, to the upcoming BBQ picnic/Meet & Greet. Then, there's her upcoming trip to New Orleans to hang out with this guy and a random assortment of hard-travelin' bloggers.

Zippo is lining up a BBQ at his remote hideaway in Brew Naunfels, but knowing a bit about how hard it is to peel people away from their daily lives, I hate the thought of trying to get the same group of people to attend all these sessions. I suppose we should just accept the primacy of Christina's legendary planning gene, nominate her the Official Organizer for Lone Star Bloggers, and just hop onto whatever merry-go-round swings nearest our neighborhood.

I'm sorely tempted by the N'Awlins trip.. It's been more than a few years since I've been there. OTOH, New Orleans in the middle of the summer is just about miserable unless you're wrapped in ice packs inside a walk-in cooler. As tasty as those frozen daquiris and Hurricanes are, when you're drunk, it just makes the heat unbearable.

Lots to think on. Wonder if they have a good shootin' range in New Orleans?
