It's going to be awwwwwwesome! The venue has 55 beers on tap, 200 bottled beers, full bar, FOOD!! An we've got a great fucking line up (the flyer went out before we booked David James Keaton and Fred Venturini). This will be an event worth traveling for (I should know, I'm coming from CA to cohost it!).

 

hope to see a lot of bright, shinining LitReactor faces.

There's still plenty of time to plan, if you really want to be there. If you click the link Averydoll put in at the top of her post, you will see the event page. We're working on making a list of hotels based on conveinence and price. If you decide to come from out of town, just note that when you RSVP and we'll put you on the list of out of town guests, to be sure we don't go over capacity before you arrive!

About 3 months until the event, so plans!  I want to meet as many LitReactors as possible! 

You can hear awesome writers, meet friends, and even have you picture taken with ME!!!  Oh wow, what an opportunity!

If I thought you would even want me there, and not throw sharp objects at my tender bits the moment I walked in the door, I'd love to!

That, and if it were closer.

Yeah, I'd only try to censor you all the time.  But you know, no one would make you stand near me specifically.  Or talk to me.  Or...

How about you, JR?

@Jessica,

More than likely, barring some unforseen expenses I should be there. I can't know for certain until a bit closer, but as it stands now I should be able to make the trip!!! And I'm excited about it.

I've just been informed by my 'woman' that we should take a road trip to meet all of you in person.

I've also been informed that the air quotes around woman should be shoved up my ass and the asses of anyone else who uses them since she is indeed my woman, and not an air quoted woman... whatever that means.

*turns to the gorgeous little Filipina goddess beside me*

Yes, sweetie, I'm writing what you said, but I'm not changing the quotes. I stand by them!

 

 

Yeah... I'm a brown noser, so what. It's well worth it later on.

I would now like to respectfully request you both take a step away and abandon the conversation for the time being.  I don't plan to shut down the thread or any shit like that; I don't think either of you actually need me to do that.  But let's give it a rest for a while, can ya dig it?

At no time did I bring up anything. Breathe some more.

If I have to keep chasing you two around like we're polyamory dating, I'm getting a piece of ass out of the deal.  I'll let you guys flip a coin to decide which one's spending the night between me and a cheap motel matress.

So in other words, Photon had better lose (or win, depending how you like it) that coin toss.
