Da Bash!




A quick reminder that we're having the first ever North Carolina Bloggers Bash, sponsored by BlueNC, on Sunday, April 27th from 3-6 pm. If you've ever started a blog, posted on a blog, or even thought about it, this party's for you. More details later, but go ahead and save the date. Greg Flynn has promised to help with all things vegetarian, but for all you carnivores, we'll have barbecue, beans, push huppies. We'll also have beer and soft drinks. If you're in the mood for wine, please bring your own.

We're asking folks for ten bucks to cover some of the costs. Candidates of all stripes and persuasions are welcome to join, free of charge. Hope you can all come!

Has anyone heard from any of the candidates?

Any of them bold enough to confirm yet?

I saw today that Joe Trippi is coming to town.

It got me thinking that maybe he'd like to come, which made me wonder if Elizabeth was going to be invited and/or would be able to make it.

The Edwards family is being invited

Trippi is certainly welcome. I'm sure he has $10. :D

Hey Betsy

You and James are doing an amazing job with BlueNC. I'm so proud to be a member here. Will you be at the bash?

Thank you, Sweetie!

That's the plan. I'll be there with both my girls and Katie's boyfriend.

Wait a minute, Katie has a boyfriend

When did she get old enough to have a boyfriend? Law, tie a brick to her head and stop the madness now! (heh)

Small wrinkle...

Isn't this the same day that the presidential candidates will be debating?

Don't know yet and we grabbed the date first

They should have checked our calendar. :D

Heh

Well, I just checked the Dome (every 5 seconds...) and read that Sen. Obama was potentially backing out of that date. So on with the show!

So we really don't need to bring anything (besides a Hamilton)?

Sounds Cool!

You had me at beer and BBQ...you had..me..at..beer and BBQ.

I will be the one with holding a beer.

Mo - you're going, aren't you? And you're going to bring your man? I might even drag the boy with me. heh. He has a blog, afterall.

I want to go.

I emailed my man, but he didn't reply. I'll poke him again.

Anybody know what sort of beer there'll be? That is, should I bring my own?

I'll be there!

But I want to know who you'll be withholding that beer from first. ;) That could get ugly.

You Betcha!

do you want to try to car pool?

We can try!

but if the boy comes, I might need to have my own wheels in case we have to make a quick getaway.

I've got it on my calendar.

I'm very much looking forward to putting some faces with some names and it will be such a pleasure to be surrounded by liberals (I may live in liberal Greensboro, but I work in Sanford).

North Carolina. Turning the South Blue!

North Carolina. Turning the South Blue!

I've been looking forward to this

since it was first announced, and I'm hoping my older son and his girlfriend will be coming with.

Whoever's in charge of the food, I was thinking about making some pasta salad, unless someone is already bringing some?

Am I allowed??? To the BlueNC Bash I mean...

I sure hope so.....

And free of charge for candidates!

Cards

Thanks Jerimee . . . a few suggestions:

1. Can you make the font size for the name and email address smaller please.

2. BLUENC.COM should be BlueNC.com

3. Let's lose the "http://" and just say "bluenc.com/blog/lcloud"

4. Blue type on white? Reverse out of blue?

1. got it 2. yup 3. ok 4.

1. got it

2. yup

3. ok

4. what? you mean maybe the cards should be blue with white text? I can ask, but I bet that's more expensive.

Did you all like the 3D shading in the background? It's supposed to look like a web button, but let me know what you think.
