“It means ‘respond so very promptly'”

Three days until the second Pittsburgh BlogFest. Will it be fun? Yes, certainly. Will you be glad you attended? You betcha.

WHAT: Pittsburgh Blogfest 2
WHEN: Wednesday, January 19, 5:30 – 9:30 pm and later
WHERE: Finnegan’s Wake (near PNC Park, 20 General Robinson St., North Shore, 412-325-2601), in the Pub Room
WHO: You
AND: Creating Text(iles), Grabass, My Brilliant Mistakes, Inner Bitch, many more

Please email blogfest at closkey.com if you plan to attend, so we can warn the nice people at Finnegan’s Wake how many kegs to bring up from the basement.

Incidentally, if you are not a knitting person, please don’t let all the discussion of knitting dissuade you from attending. I predict that most BlogFesters will not knit. For sure, I won’t be knitting. Most likely I will murmur admiring comments about someone’s work or express amazement at the porcupine nature of the kneedle-infested item they’ve brought. Then I will bop blissfully away to join another conversation where I will blurt out an authoritative-souding statement that has absolutely no basis in fact. Then I will wave to the bartender for another drink. Watch for it.

Also, a contest! I will award an exciting prize to each of the first three people who RSVP and correctly identify the source of the cultural reference from whence comes the title of this entry. And, because that’s an easy one, there will be an extra, extra-special prize for anyone who can bring in evidence of the exact correct wording. (Which I admit not to remember.) Previous RSVPers are welcome to re-RSVP for purposes of the contest.

All applicable exclusions and limitations apply, must be present to win, no animals or children were harmed in the offering of this contest.
