That 1 Guy of Drunken Wisdom has a post about the dangers of drunken blogging. He asks of his readers, that if a drunk commenter shows up on their blog, to chase them off. I for one say no. Actually I say, “Hell no!” I like drunken commenters. They are interesting, they make for fun, and they are highly entertaining.

In the comments of this post, I started jokingly suggesting that: “What we need to do is get together one night, start doing shots and tag team drunk blogging... We can hit the entire Bad Example Family. It'd be a BlogCrawl instead of a pub crawl.”

As soon as I typed that, I thought… yea… that’s not a bad idea. A BlogCrawl. Designate a date, time, and get a bunch of drunks posting on blogs. Now, I’m trying to get some volunteers together to join me in this BlogCrawl. On one of my free nights, I am planning on getting very socially lubricated and leaving a comment on every blog in both the Bad Example and Frizzen Families. Who’s with me? We’ll set a date and go from there. If people want to turn this into a blogmeet for more social interaction, more power to you. If you can’t get away and just, want to drink with other people online. Let’s go for it! If you don’t drink but want to watch the ensuing highjinx, GREAT! That’s why I want to do this!

All I need to do now is work on the logistics of this. I need some volunteers and then we need to pick a night and let things go from there. If you want in, drop me a line or leave a comment and I’ll start working out details with everyone.

Hey, I just had an idea… if we plan this right I can get a bunch of drunken bloggers to invade Harvey’s home… A Blogmeet, BlogCrawl, House trashing! It’s a trifecta of fun!

Sissy, I'm not looking for an excuse. I'm looking for partners!

Holy crap. Why am I not surprised by this?

I'll post a link to think tonight.

NOOOO!, your blog mama won't be participating. I don't drink. But I will be the sober one saying to you the next day, "Wait. You don't remember when you..." :)

I'm with Bou here, I will be your memory for when your real one invariable fails.

Screw a bunch of blog-chaperones! Let the partay commence. BTB (By The By) I've drunk-blogded 'afore, so don't give me any crap if I seem coherent.

Posted by: Johnny - Oh at June 14, 2005 09:38 PM

Hehe - Sounds like fun ... although I am severely time-challenged, being on the left coast. Then again, since I'm a lightweight, that might work to my advantage!

We are supposed to be "drunk and funny", I have trouble being "sober funny"

Posted by: ArmyWifeToddlerMom at June 14, 2005 10:57 PM

hmm, I'm interested.

But if I'm not out of my parent's house then I will have to be a Designated Driver as well. My parents have a strict rule about not bringing alcohol into the house. My land lords do to, but what they don't know can't hurt them, and if I have to, I'll keep the alcohol outside in my car and run outside, take a shot, then blog, then repeat.

I think it goes without sayin, that I'm in. Don't want anyone to feel alone, says I.

Posted by: That 1 Guy at June 15, 2005 01:09 AM

I'm in. After seven and at weekends, anything goes!

Posted by: Sally at June 15, 2005 04:32 AM

This is SO immature.

I'm game.

Posted by: Harvey at June 15, 2005 07:35 AM

How is this immature? Haven't you ever done a pub crawl?.. Same thing... only blogs.

Posted by: Contagion at June 15, 2005 08:42 AM

This isn't enough though, we have to figure out rules to actually turn it into some form of drinking game....

Posted by: Graumagus at June 15, 2005 09:44 AM

Christ, leave it upto the BEF to come up with this.

Before you know it, Evil Glenn will be announcing it on his blog and it will catch on across the country.

Posted by: Machelle at June 15, 2005 10:22 AM

Awesome. I'm starting now, you people just catch up. ;)

Well I'll be on vacation with no computers (no electricity most of the time) for the next two weeks, so I'll just drink a lot and pretend I'm posting if you do this soon.

Posted by: Ogre at June 15, 2005 10:41 AM

I'm game! Is it drunk and nekkid or just drunk? I'll do both, long as the kiddies are asleep. No need to scare them...

Posted by: Julie at June 15, 2005 12:29 PM

I think Machelle's got a point. If the Carnival of the Recipes got an Instalanche - why not this?

I hadn't thought about the time difference. Holy Shit, am I in trouble! I think I'm at least six hours ahead, so I'll be the first passed out in the bathtub :-D

Posted by: Sally at June 15, 2005 01:05 PM

There have been many questions about the clothing option for this. Clothing is optional, I will leave this up to the individual. However if you do strip down, I do expect pictures! ;)

Sally, Yea, the time difference is going to be harsh on you. You'll either have to stay up really late or just be the first one out.

Posted by: Contagion at June 15, 2005 01:35 PM

For all of you who are wondering if this is clothing optional, especially the ladies, you can just come over and use my computer. My address is ***(removed by moderator)***, and I would love to ***(removed by moderator)*** with you.


Posted by: littlejoe at June 15, 2005 03:50 PM

Hahaha! Nekkid blogging, maybe ... webcam or other pics ... No Friggin' Way!

Posted by: Barb at June 15, 2005 04:10 PM

I'll give it a go.

Posted by: peemil at June 15, 2005 04:10 PM

Sally--I'm in the UK too, so we can both pass out early...no shame in that!
