(Never mind the earlier concerns about Quetzal. Everything's fine.)
The Bloggers Bash is ON. It is set for Wednesday, December 21st at 7PM. It will be at Quetzal, at 668 Union Avenue, across from the Commercial Appeal building. It is open to anyone who has a blog, a livejournal or a MySpace page, or any other blog-like website.
The space is wi-fied, so bring your laptop. Liveblogging is encouraged. So are cameras. I have promised to do my Howard "I'm mad as Hell and I'm not going to take it any more" Beale impersonation in the direction of the CA. (Though it will be pitch dark outside at that hour. Ha! Didn't think of that, did you smarty-pants?)
Below is a bash graphic you are free to use on your own sites. It comes in two flavors: Good Santa and Bad Santa. Your call. Please help to spread the word about this bash by promoting it on your blog, livejournal, MySpace page, etc. The more the merrier. These bashes are purely social events and always a lot of fun.
I would prefer that you download the image to your own server, but I have enabled hot-linking until the 21st so anyone who doesn't have an image host can use these. The text below the graphics is the direct image URL you enter on your blog, if you hotlink. (Please be gentle with my bandwidth, OK?) It doesn't show on this black background, but the Good Santa image has a thin black border around it, for white backgrounds.
See y'all there!
