Hahahaha! Tam Didn't Know!

Tonight, Turk and I returned from a delightful Yat's dinner to find Tam ruefully shaking her head: "We'll have to change the BlogMeet! The Rapture is that Saturday!"

I thought she was already aware of that -- and never you mind that the same guy has already predicted dates for the event that have come and gone.

Carl Bussjaeger's running a poll on people's plans for 21 May. I may go to the Broad Ripple Art Fair; there should be no shortage of artists and attendees either way.

The BlogMeet is still on for the 22nd. If you have to miss it 'cos of bein' Raptured, well, I'm going to look on that, in my terrible, terrible way, as another splendid exercise of the freedom protected by the Bill of Rights. I'm hardly equipped to make such a prediction, after all, and I'm not going to schedule around it. I'm sure not gonna argue about it with short-timers.

I've got a gal friend and her husband here for the weekend and am playing host and chef. Give my regards to everyone.

Well, y'all can get in on the post-Rapture looting, at least.

Sounds like Tam has Rapture plans. Perhaps she'd like to take my Rapture poll: http://carlbussjaeger.blogspot.com/2011/05/rapture-saturday.html

I for one can't wait for the rapture. Think of how good the parking will be.

Wish I could be there.

HOWEVER, I'll be here, wearing a cup, just in case.

I guess I'll have to drive w/o a safety belt that day.

Wasn't the Rapture when the drunk hippie fell off the Rainbow Bridge at the last one?

At least I was fairly rapturous....

Joanna said...

I have mixed feelings re: Saturday, on account of I'm scheduled to work overtime that morning. OTOH, there's a new Doctor Who that evening. It's a toss-up.

I have a friend who was going to start a website- "When the rapture comes, can I have your stereo?" but it's probably too late now.

Just the Rapture on Saturday?

And here I was so psyched that it was Ragnarok.

"The Rapture is that Saturday!"

Before or after 2 o'clock? And is that daylight time or God's Time? Details are important!

MMmmmmm.....
Yats is one of the two things that make me want to take another trip to Indy.

The other is the zoo.

Secesh said...

I'm going to a gun show that day. There's no better way to face the rapture than with a new gun in hand.

Roberta X said...

Std. Mischief: Yep. --Not that isn't free to sit down and claim to know, but it means even most people on his own side are gonna look askance.

Benjamin: What, and not the BlogMeet?

Benjamin said...

Rest assured dear lady that should a BlogMeet coincide with my next turn through Indy I will make every effort to drop in and stand for a round.

The threat of being surrounded by such wit and snark though does inspire some trepidation.

And Of my two trips through the area Yats and the zoo are the two things that I have experienced that I wish to repeat. So far...
