Not Your Grandmomma's Blogmeet

The Paris Bloggers' Picnic was a resounding success because:

  1. Daniel Rose promised to buy me a hot dog stand
  2. I made out with King Negrito (pictured here)

Something tells me that neither will remember...

Other picnic highlights include:
  • Guarding the bushes as Petite peed no fewer than fifteen times
  • Watching Katia and Rhino perform Xanadu (captured on FwaB TV here)
  • Getting locked in the park after we ignored the guardian's whistle
  • Watching Amy make a near-donut of herself while attempting to scale the gates
  • Painting the sidewalk outside my apartment with a mélange of Pimm's Cup and Pringles
Police estimate that around 70 bloggers turned out for Saturday's picnic. Organizers put this number closer to five hundred.

Five hundred bloggers means that at least the same number of posts and no fewer than forty thousand photos will be circulating before Wednesday.

Thanks to everyone who came!

In the Butt(es) with the Paris Bloggers

Your hosts Meg, Rhino, Frog & Petite
As previously warned, the peaceful idyll of the Parc des Buttes-Chaumont will be gravely interrupted on Saturday.

Check back here for the post-picnic wrap-up, in which I will answer some burning questions:
  • are all blogs crap?
  • did Meg roll in any dog poo?
  • did Petite have sex in the bushes?
More than 100 bloggers and their hangers on are planning to turn out. If you're going to be in Paris, and are narcissist-friendly, please join us. The picnic website is here.

Petite has whipped up a little t-shirt competition, and you can vote for the following picnic slogans:
  • I don't read your fucking blog
  • But enough about you...
  • Shag me first, Google me later
  • Will this picnic improve my stats?
  • (front) I'm a little bit famous (back) Overall visits: 47
  • Your link here
  • I don't fuck with my shrink because he reads my blog
  • Kiss my bloggin' ass
  • Paris Bloggers Take it in the Butt(es)
