All this talk of endless alcohol consumption, world-class
bullshitting story telling, southern hospitality (even for Yankees, provided we agree to at least try grits â€“ no sugar, of course), and free-for-all guitar playing and singing finally got to me. I therefore have decided to head down to Helen, Georgia to participate in the Jawja Blogtoberfest on October 15th and 16th. I will be bringing my guitar and however many hundreds of songs are permanently stuck in my head. I hope to get a chance to play with Eric and Acidman and anyone else who shows up with an axe (and maybe even to do a bit of harmony).
From what I have read here and here, I see that we will not be the only Yankees in attendance. It looks like we have the possible makings of a Yankee invasion, and we all know how things turned out the last time that happened.
I think we had better avoid wearing blue.
