Dark Bilious Vapors

But how could I deny that I possess these hands and this body, and withal escape being classed with persons in a state of insanity, whose brains are so disordered and clouded by dark bilious vapors....

05/02/2005: Ok, Party Time!!!!!

I'd floated the idea a while ago, and seemed to get general acceptance (at least nobody objected to the tentative date/time/location). So I'm going to make this the official (well, as official as these things get) announcement.

The middle-to-end of May will see two fairly significant events on the Memphis bloggers' calendar: Abby will be defending her dissertation, and our DBV partner-in-crime Karen will be coming down to visit from the frozen wastes (climatic, political, and intellectual ;-) ) of Dennis Hastert Country, to see what the fetid swamp (climatic, political, and intellectual) of the mid-South is like. So, in order to mark both events, it seems to me an excellent time to have Yet Another Memphis Bloggers' Bash:

Date: May 25, 2005
Time: 7:00 PM (tentative)
Location: The Bar-B-Q Shop, 1782 Madison Ave., Memphis, TN (Midtown)
The agenda will be fairly loose, though I contemplate two essential activities for the evening:
  1. Giving Abby her "attagirls" for her successful defense of her dissertation, and begin the process of marking her relocation to The Hub Of The Universe (in other words, we can sure as heck have a second "going away" party for her closer to her departure in August (IIRC)), and
  2. Subject Karen to her proper punishment, the soft cushions, for her coining of the neologism "Memphonian" (vice the proper "Memphian"; we are looking into the possibility of finding a comfy chair to continue the punishment in the event she's made of harder stuff than we think, and the soft cushions aren't sufficient punishment)
Incidentally, Abby may be interested in noting that, when I Googled "bar b q shop, madison, memphis" to verify the address, her Flickr photoset is the first hit.
