Jawja Bloggahs Party Down, Helen-style?

Well, I’m feeling like the creepy kid down the block calling up his friends to crash the cool chick’s party by doing this, but I couldn’t resist. I was once that creepy kid anyway, in junior high.

Kelly at Suburban Blight made this PSA in August, ferchrissakes. Here’s a little snippet that may explain further;

…On the 15th and 16th of October, a tiny, bucolic, mock-Alpine village nestled in the lower ranges of the north Georgia mountains will be invaded by the most motley assemblage to darken its doors in a hundred years. That’s right, it’s almost time for the annual Jawja Blogger Bash! This year, we’ll be tearing it out in downtown Helen, Georgia during the height of its one-month tourist season – Oktoberfest.

Kelly was one of the bloggers profiled in the AJC last weekend along with me. I do recommend you take a look, but I also strongly recommend clicking on the names of fellow metrobloggers above and checking out their personal sites as well. Most of us have the URL in our bios.

That said, this thing is annual? Once a year bloggers from Georgia invade Helen and swill beer and uh, talk about, uh…blogging? Well, hell, color me there whether you want me or not! I want more info, yo. Put it in da comments.

Because you know above all there will be one immensely important thing there; Beer. Lots and lots of beer.

    Damn. I’d be all over that, and I don’t really even like Helen — it has too much of that Gatlinburg-Wanna-Be aroma. But I’ll be otherwise engaged that weekend. Or rather, I won’t be engaged anymore. I mean, I’ll be getting all married and stuff. So maybe a smaller remix of the same kind of gathering closer to Hallowe’en?

    “Annual” because it happened last year too.

    Steve — email Kelley. She’s wonderful.

    Jessica, you just officially made my year. ;) I think I’m in love!

    I would love to see BOTH of you at Blawgtoberfest. It will be fun, I gar-on-tee. Jessica, I am just about to send you an e-mail…even as I type…

    All Georgia bloggers are invited. As an added bonus, we also have a Floridian and a pack of Yanquis on the roster. The more the merrier, really. Y’all come!
