Hey all you Manchester-based blogsters! We're having one of our occasional blogmeets on Saturday 7th April at The Hare & Hounds on Shudehill, so come one, come all. Hey, you don't need to be someone who writes a blog to show up as we also allow any kind of transient to drink with us. The Manchizzle is also doing her best to drum up support (she was even as kind as to say that I'm 'organising' it, when all I really did was come up with a venue and a time), so come along and we'll all get to know each other, share tips on blogging, glare at each other from across the table and slag each other off in the toilets.

Only kidding! Past blogmeets have been friendly affairs and often devolved into a "No, your blog's the best!"-style backslap. Make mine a Joey Holt's!

See you there!

I think you've been unfairly forced into organising this event. The internets can be so harsh and unforgiving...

...with that in mind; deal with it and get making us some sort of finger buffet!

PS: I'll try and be there. My first blog meet; I've always told myself I'd go to one of these things.

It'd be good to see you there, Coxy.

I'll get to cooking up some vol-au-vents and sticking bits of manky cheese and pineapple on cocktail sticks.

We were planning on coming until we saw you'd tagged this post "mutual masturbation." Now we're not sure because we can't afford to buy rubber gloves.

Gloves will be provided.

finding a venue + choosing a time = organising event

Hope the tat dude shows up...

Oh god yes, so do I! That guy had his blog etched onto his body, replete with intricate pictures of Jimi Hendrix.

"cheese and pineapple on cocktail sticks" - blimey count me in.

I've stuck it in my iCal. Is this the kind of shindig where we're all gonna be laptop'd up and blogging from the event ?

Hope to be there.

Um... probably not, judging by past blogmeets. Knock yourself out though, just try not to get beer on your laptop.

More to the point, try not to let everyone else get beer on your laptop after 7 hours of bacchanalian celebration and lots of marigold rubber gloves.

Oh and James, I expect you'll have a special pair for me, fur-lined of course. Only the best for us you know.

The Indie Credential always gets preferential treatment when it comes to handing out gloves. I think we might be able to rustle up a pair of red gloves with white fur trim that Marjorie Reynolds wore in Holiday Inn. Either those or the pair that Christopher Lloyd wore as Judge Doom in Who Framed Roger Rabbit? Your choice.

Ooh how can a girl resist the idea of wearing Judge Doom's gloves?! And so appropriate too...

You know, MP3 bloggers are the incarnation of evil. Apparently.

Seems to be a good response to this, will be nice to see loads of folks down on Saturday.
