Tell It To Me One More Time

Many, many thanks to everyone who came out to BOLO tonight – it was a hot evening but a very good time. I’d just like to give a special shout out to everyone who helped set up and make the evening run smoothly: Julie of Thoughts of a Smother Mother, Allison of Bibliomama, Pam of Easily Amused, Sabrina of Ninja Mom, Colette of Colette2008, and FameThrowa of FameThrowa’s Wayward Ruminations. You guys rock!

Also, many thanks to Irene’s Pub for hosting us this year – they were awesome, the venue was great, and I’m thinking we’ll be seeing them again next year.

Over the next couple of days I’ll be posting a list of people who were there, as well as some photos if I can get my hands on them.

In the meantime, here’s the list of the posts that were read if you’d like a second chance to check them out.

    Lynn: You are seriously a goddess. Thank you so much for organizing an event that gave so many of us such a thrill! I laughed so hard that I cried, and I also cried at some of the touching posts read in person. Wonderful time, and so well organized! Gratefully yours, Julie

    You rock, Lynn. It was awesome. I only wish I didn’t have to leave so early.

    Lynn, you are seriously awesome. Thank you for putting that together. We even had bra flashing! It was like spring break in the blogosphere! 😛 If you need help next year let me know. I’ll be more than happy to lend a hand. It might save me from going on a Diet Coke binge like I did last night. Whoa, my head!

    Given my absence at this year’s BOLO, I refuse to believe that it could have been any more enjoyable, stimulating, entertaining–or mad–than last year.

    A pox on you all (until next year’s BOLO. Then I’ll be the only one who doesn’t read about the having the Ottawa blog plague)
