Ann Made Me Do It
For a good many years, I've wanted to attend General Convention of the Episcopal Church, but I never followed through with a plan. A couple of weeks ago, I read about the gathering of bloggers at Bar Louie on Friday evening and felt so very jealous. I checked plane fares and hotels, going back and forth about whether I'd go over a period of a good many days. I will. I won't. I WILL! It's a great self-indulgence, but will I be better off waiting three more years to attend? I'm getting to the point of, "I want to do this before I die," and I may not have years and years ahead of me to do these things.
Someone spoke of a button for those who would be meeting, and Ann suggested the one pictured above. I asked her not to include my blog, but she did it anyway. The truth of it is, although I don't think my blog belongs on the button, the button is what pushed me over the line to make the reservations, so, God willing, I'll be in Anaheim at Louie's Bar on Friday night, raising a glass with the rest of them.
My blog name is on the button. What could I do? It was out of my hands, right? I had no choice.
Once I'm in Anaheim, I have no plans beyond going to Bar Louie on Friday night. I'm assuming that things will evolve after I get there. Maybe I'll see if there is a need for last-minute volunteers. I don't want to plan ahead too much, because if I commit now, something better may come up later. Hmmm. Shallow. If nothing develops, I may spend the whole time in Bar Louie. I'm bound to meet up with interesting people there.
So, to all of you who will be there on Friday, I'll see you at Louie's and around in Anaheim.
