BlogCrawl UPDATE 1

I have received many different volunteers for the Blog Crawl. However, I have not received any suggestions on what day would work best for everyone. Right now I’m thinking Saturday, July 30th that is one of the last Saturdays I have free. I know that is over a month away but that gives everyone time to prepare and get ready. It also allows time for e-mails to be sent and responded to. Unless you are TIG who either doesn’t read his e-mails or just chooses to ignore the ones from me. Especially if they want to set up a blog meet around this.

I’m also thinking that since we have many different people that live in different time zones that want to play, that I’m going to have a large window to participate. So starting at 7 PM until 7 AM CST the next day will be the times. It doesn’t mean you have to participate for the entire 12 hours, just put your drunken comments up during that time frame.

I received an e-mail asking for the rules. Okay, here are the rules:

A) You have to be 21 years old to participate. I don’t want some minor’s parents coming back and saying I told them to get pissed drunk and go on the internet. If you are under 21, you may still participate, as a designated blogger.

2) Drink as much as you comfortably feel you should. This is for fun, I don’t want to have blog fodder stories involving charcoal slurries and ER visits. Be responsible, especially if you have to drive. I’m saying right now that if you do something stupid and hurt yourself I will make fun of you. I am neither legally, morally nor ethically responsible for anything you do either in the real world or on the internet. You are all adults and responsible for your own actions.

D) Please attempt to limit the Blog Crawl comments to the time frame listed. Just so, it’s easier to track. Not that I’m going to link to every single post that has a comment on it, I just don’t want to search for them Sunday to see what everyone said. Oh, and a drunken post on your own blog is perfectly acceptable and I will link to those.

4) Try to leave a comment on every blog in the Bad Example and Frizzen Sparks family. You may use my side bar as a reference if you don’t know who they are. Do not feel limited to these blogs only, go ahead and hit any other blog you would like as well. Oh, and a drunken post on your own blog is perfectly acceptable and I will link to those.

That’s it! I’m not asking much, again this is for fun. It’s not that I think anyone would get pissed drunk, jump in a car kill a family of 4, then jump on the internet and start a blog war while intoxicated. I just need to cover my butt legally on the off chance that happens.

If anyone has any objections to this date, or wants to suggest another one, please leave a comment.

**checking out bar and verifying sufficient quantities are on hand.**

That date is actually perfect - I'll still be celebrating my birthday!

WooHoo......I can't wait to see this!

Who is this T1G to whom you refer? And why won't he answer your e-mails? Does he have a gmail account that hasn't been working like so many others?

But the 30th does sound like it may work! I'm in.

What's with all the disclaimers, you citizen of a mad litigious nation, you?

I'm told that I once spent a few days in Scotland on a pub crawl, and if I remember anything of that trip, the charcoal was the best bit. Damn fine stuff for settling the stomach in my opinion. I'm fairly sure you can get it over the counter in Glasgow.

"I don’t want to have blog fodder stories involving charcoal slurries and ER visits." LOL!

And Sally cracks me up.

OK, one other thing, disclaimer on mine, if people get really fucking rude on my blog, I'm deleting their comments. Just sayin'... I'm all for fun and I'll laugh my ass off at y'all, but being drunk is no excuse to be a complete asshole.

Sally, yea I know. But anymore you just need to cover your own ass.

Bou, I have no problem with that. That's part of the people taking responsibilities for their own actions. If they are rude or just nasty comments. I'd delete them too.

Posted by: Contagion at June 18, 2005 10:32 PM

I ain't deleting shit.

Mostly because I have no sense of either decency or shame :-)

Tammi and I will both be celebrating our birthdays!! this should be fun!

And I think Contagion was drunk writing this...Mr A, 2, D, 4.

That's why you're my favorite Bruncle!

Sissy, you are the first person to point that out. I did it intentionally. In fact I generally number stuff like that as a joke.

Can undrunk adults play?

Posted by: Jo at June 20, 2005 03:58 PM

Wow, if I happen to think of this next month, I'll look at some of the posts, at the very least. Who knows, I may even buy a case of Budweiser or Guinness and have at it along with you.

Count me in!

A rules clarification -- so, as I read the time frame, I should plan on already being drunk by the start time, 7PM CST, right? ;)

Posted by: Ogre at July 14, 2005 10:03 AM

Ogre, you can be drunk by 7pm if you want. I'm just asking for the drunk posting to start no earlier then 7PM.

Posted by: Contagion at July 14, 2005 10:26 AM

I'll try to be as drunk as I can be. Its for the cause ....... right? :)
