In another window is an IRC chat for the Blogathon.... And of course are the blogs.
I am reminded of an evening about 10 years ago at Pennsic War. (Now they are on Saturday Night, by the Bay City Rollers which is a real memory trip)
I was playing Doumbek around camps and was invited to a hafla with some friends. We got there and the place was packed. I mean people were 5 deep into the street around the camp site. Someone spotted me and beckoned me around the side.
He said.. drummer.. you come in through here.
Inside was two tents filled with snacks... We're talking regal catering.
And that was for the drummers. Fruit, chips, drinks, water, seats.
As it turned out.. we were the VIPs. because we played for the dancers and they brought the crowd.
We got wonderful treatment because we were making the thing come together.
Listening to the music being played for the Bloggers in the Blogathon. Watching the chat.
Typing posts. It feels neat.
See you on Sunday :) it's 11:30.
