Asheville / East Coast / South East meetup? I'm visiting the area for a while. Who wants a piece of me?

I think all MeTa posts should end with "Who wants a piece of me?" It really puts you in the proper MeTa mindset.

How do you regulate your hormones and stuff?

loquacious can almost certainly be spotted at Drinking Liberally on Thursday (as in tomorrow) at Asheville Brewing Company on Coxe Avenue.

Let's have it in Columbia, SC. I am forbidden by my love of awesomeness from ever leaving the greatest state in the nation.

More information: I'm currently in Asheville and moderately busy with some contract work and visiting a friend and helping them move and suchlike...

On Preview: Oh, well then. Way to open Pandora's Box, MGL! Yeah, I'll be at that Drinking Liberally thing. I hear they sacrifice goats and eat babies there or something. I'm vaguely worried about it.

I'm vaguely worried that they don't eat babies the correct way here in the South. They'll probably put grits and gravy and collard greens all over 'em or some equally crazy shit.

Regulate!? Hormones? What in the hell are you talking about?

Wait, nevermind...

That's what I thought!

Oh and it is "Hon" short for "Honey" or "Honeychild" not "Hun". WTF? You see anybody down here named Attila motherfucker?!

This woman didn't regulate her hormones either. Take heed.

Mostly we like the other other white-meat barbecued, with a greasy side of poke salad.

Dude, I love it here too, but I do take a vacation every so often to sit on new and different bar stools.

(Also: what gland holds the snark? I must eat it to become more powerful.)

I am like Samson, and South Carolina is my hair. If I leave South Carolina then I lose my powers and I can be smoted with an ass's jawbone. That makes loquacious Delilah saying "Come up to North Carolina. Have a beer. It will be great." and then I get there and *whack* ass's jawbone upside the head. Oldest trick in the book.

Mark E. Smith blinking to the riff of "Jawbone and the Air rifle".
posted by Burhanistan at 2:43 PM on May 2, 2007


Wait Samson smote other people with the ass's jawbone right? He was blinded and tied to a temple and then God gave him his strength back and he pulled the temple down smoting both himself and his enemies?

Okay, so I am still Samson, and South Carolina is still my hair, and loq is still Delilah, but I guess now beer is blindness and being too drunk to drive home is getting tied up, and then having my powers returned to me would be crossing back into South Carolina while driving home anyway despite the fact that I know I am too drunk to drive, because I will just go slow, and what am I supposed to do just leave my car there?, and then I suppose pulling the temple down and killing myself and my enemies would be . . . turning around and crashing my car into the bar? It is kind of confusing, but bottom line is I better not leave South Carolina.

I, too, vote for Columbia. Like ND¢, me leaving the state is scary for all involved.
posted by chiababe at 4:59 PM on May 2, 2007


Man, how come Loq never comes to the midwest? Specifically Michigan.

Though, you know, after this month— fuck Michigan. How come Loq never comes to LA?

I'm in charge of that. You wouldn't believe the amount of palpation and massage required.
posted by WolfDaddy at 5:28 PM on May 2, 2007


No! None of you can have a piece of loquacious! He's MINE to stalk, ALL MINE!
posted by po at 5:51 PM on May 2, 2007


loquacious you know I love you but I was told in no uncertain terms , by the governor of South Carolina that I should not return to that fair state, lest I be thrown in jail for a very long time. Have a drink for me boy, and just tear that place up.
posted by nola at 7:11 PM on May 2, 2007


There are several things wrong with your statement: (1) loquacious is in North Carolina, not South Carolina. (2) South Carolina is not a "fair state". It is the greatest state in the nation. (3) No governor of South Carolina would have told you to leave our state and never come back. He would have just shot you.

I meant North Carolina, I just get them confused since they're both miles and miles of paper mills and pawn shops. I kid , I kid . . . everyone knows thats Georgia.

Have a drink for me boy, and just tear that place up.

Done and done. Probably unfortunately. I'll probably be at Drinking Liberally but I feel I'm going to have to cut things shorter than previously forecasted, as per my chaotic muthafuckin' life.

I may be passing through points mideast, Texas, and even LA on the way home to SF, depeding on which schedule I take.

No, seriously: on the way out I wanted to post my Greyhound itinerary so maybe I could have minimeets along the way and just meet folks. Should I do it this time?

Did I mention that? That I took Greyhound all the way out here? And am choosing to do so on the way back for the adventure of it? Hells ya. Hella tight. California here I come.

Let us know if you come through H-town.
posted by Burhanistan at 9:23 PM on May 2, 2007

Damnit. Where the hell were you when on the way out here I lost my bus AND all of my luggage in the bowel-y hellspit known as Sacramento for 13 hours and used a pile of "For Rent" magazines as a pillow?

I so wish I wasn't serious. Fuck you Greyhound, fuck you.

Houston's not on the list but Dallas and Fort Worth are.

Georgia does indeed suck nola. Heh . . . Georgia.

If you have a brother in jail and a brother in Georgia, bust the one out of Georgia first...

Unlike the other Columbians in this thread I will venture beyond the confluence of the Broad and Saluda, nay, even outside the confines of this fair state to places where one can buy 7% beer, even on holy days such as Sunday. I guess that makes me the Drunken Moses of Columbia.

7% beer? You are so three days ago.
posted by ND¢ at 6:55 AM on May 3, 2007


loquacious, you bastard. You know how much I wanted to be a good stalker for you, how hard I tried, my sleepless nights tracing in vain your whereabouts. And I'm not. I'm a -terrible- stalker, and we both knew it, but now you've gone and let all of Mefi know, and they're going to laugh at me forever and ever. I hope you're happy!

*runs off sobbing*

Loquacious, for daring to ride Greyhound on the East side of the Mississippi, I salute your bravery and question your sanity.

/me reads ND¢'s link, lower lip quivers, small tear forms, world becomes slightly more beautiful...

Okay, so a meetup next week at Flying Saucer then?
posted by 1f2frfbf at 11:51 AM on May 3, 2007


We really could have a Columbia meet-up, but it would only be three people.
posted by ND¢ at 12:05 PM on May 3, 2007


Well, we could buy GlitterNinja cigs, and then the cops could show up and complete it. We would be LEGENDS.
posted by 1f2frfbf at 12:11 PM on May 3, 2007


I had to google to figure out what a "GlitterNinja cig" was, but the AskMe in question came up when I did, so now I am in the know. I am glad I did that before I was all like "Yeah we should totally score some glitterninja cigs."

I suppose we should wait until there are at least five active Columbia mefites before a meet-up is attempted. Should be sometime in 2012.
posted by ND¢ at 12:17 PM on May 3, 2007


We could all meet halfway in Greenville or Spartanburg.

Nah, maybe not.
posted by mygothlaundry at 12:20 PM on May 3, 2007


Greenville or Spartanburg? Did you not see above about my love of awesomeness. I wouldn't last a minute in either of those squaresvilles.
posted by ND¢ at 12:54 PM on May 3, 2007


Loquacious on tour:

Schedule 4843 departing 9ish EST from Asheville to SF on the 4th. Many layovers, check it. If you're smart and swift and fast and dense enough to figure that out we'll probably be tight, yo. Look for the longhaired unshaven nerd in black jeans and carrying a huge black pack and red roller. I have a phone - feel free to email me your phone number.

(Asheville - Nashville - Memphis - Little Rock - Dallas - El Paso - Tuscon - Phoenix - Blythe - Los Angeles - Hollywood - SF)

Hi syntax and moonbird. Nice to meet you.
