What's a Blogcrawl?
That's where you get drunk and start leaving comments on every blog on the Bad Example & Frizzen Sparks Family blogrolls (Which can be found in my sidebar, assuming Blogrolling is working properly).
Last one was June of 2005.
And it's happening again this Saturday (9-29) because 1) it's been a while and 2) it's Contagion of Miasmatic Review's birthday, and this is how he wants to celebrate.
Here are this year's rules:
A) You have to be 21 years old to participate and drink. I donít want some minorís 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 driver. If you don't want to drink but still make stupid comments, be my guest!
2) Drink as much as you comfortably feel you should. This is for fun, I donít want to have blog fodder stories involving charcoal slurries and ER visits. Be responsible, especially if you have to drive. Iím 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 hours of 7:00PM September 29 and 7:00 AM CST September 30th. Just so itís easier to track and the time zone differences for all the participants. Not that Iím going to link to every single post that has a comment on it, I just donít want to search for them Sunday to see what everyone said. Oh, and a drunken post on your own blog is perfectly acceptable and encouraged. Same with day after posts.
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 donít 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 encouraged.
As for real-life pre-Crawl fun:
"I am going to head down to Fritzís Wooden Nickel in Stillman Valley to get my drunk on, I probably will not get home until after midnight. Iím planning on hitting Fritzís between 3:30 and 4:30 PM and drinking the night away. Hey, itís my birthday and my liver, donít you judge me! Any and all of you that want to come and meet me there for the celebration would be great. However, if you could let me know if you plan on being there in advance I would appreciate it. That way I can give Fritz a headís up on how many to expect. If someone does set up a chat channel this year, itís all good. Just donít expect me to be on there until well after midnight and even then I may not be all that active as Iím trying to make drunken comments.
Before I go to Fritzís Iím planning on heading down to the Buffalo Range in Ottowa, Illinois. It even looks like they are having a Pig Roast on that day. See even they are getting into the Blogcrawl! There is a $25.00 range fee for shooting."
Personally, I'm really looking forward to this.
