Press Release

WORLD RENOWNED BLOGGERS ANNOUCE INAUGURAL MEET
April 29, 2007, 8:30 PM EST - Wrathcardipus Newswire Service

Cyberspace, April 29, 2007 The First Annual Canadian East Coast Blogmeet™, alternately known as the World's Smallest Blogmeet, scheduled for an undisclosed location on May 20, 2007, has been announced by Wrathcardipus Newswire Service, a subsidiary of the C. Elegans Conglorporation™, a joint Onterrible/Nofunland endeavour.

Designed to establish a mechanism whereby interested parties may enhance interactions between bloggers primarily located in Eastern Canada, visiting Eastern Canada, just passing through Eastern Canada, or even thinking about maybe, possibly some day, if they get that grocery packing job, getting sort of close to Eastern Canada on their way to anywhere else, the event is also open to bloggers worldwide.

Date May 20th, 2007
Time 1:00 AM-ish* Newfoundland Time (GMT -3 and a half hours. Yes really)
Location Eastern Canada
Duration Don't blink, you'll miss it!
Activities Aimless wandering in an as yet unnamed airport (hint: one step east and you get your feet wet), consumption of caffeinated beverages, gum flapping, perhaps a chorus or two of “Barrett’s Privateers,” some jiggery-pokery of a photographic nature, and possibly a 10-minute tour of some picturesque parts of Eastern Canada, in the middle of the night. It'll probably snow, too. (No it won’t, either. ~W.) Plz to note that no educational credits are awarded for attendance at this otherwise fine event.

Registered attendees currently include Wrath and Ricardipus. All other Bloggers are invited.** (plz to RSVP to Wrath or Ricardipus, and include the registration fee***).

Hope to see you there! (Optimists, us.)



*Do not think about removing the hyphen unless you can provide the appropriate headgear for all attendees.

**Plz to note that if anyone else shows up, status as World's Smallest Blogmeet may be compromised. Don't say we didn't warn you.

***registration fee to be negotiated, chocolate but we accept chocolate all kinds of gifts and chocolate.

I have no idea what he's talking about.

Ricardipus said...

Strange, if anyone asks me, I'm just going to refer them to you. 'Cos I have no idea either.

Bored, were we?

Ricardipus said...

Not at all, sir. It was a well-thought-out "iiddveaa" (today's WV).

Bob said...

My head hurts from reading the disclaimer backwards and upside down at the same time...

Ricardipus said...

bob - were you reading the Chinese version in Australia, or what?

Stumped!

Ricardipus said...

john.g - it's a real event, meticulously planned.*


*the word "meticulously" here does not fit its normally-accepted definition

The Wrath of Dawn said...

Wait until they view the photographic evidence, taken in the airport's pirate ship. THEN they'll feel silly.

Not as silly as us, but that's a whole different matter.

The Wrath of Dawn said...

Dude! Change the posting time... I mean I know there's a time difference, but not that much!

Ricardipus said...

*toddles off to change post time
