bloggers' convention

miss joni over at cote de texas and i were emailing about, the scariness of vicodin, where to find a great bed and other bloggery type things. i ran something by her that i'd like to run by you all. what would you think of a blogger convention of sorts? we could all get together, one weekend, here in "hell-A". and stay at wearstler's "viceroy".

i could take you on a shopping tour (SO much good shopping-chapman radcliffe anyone?) and if you really want, visit the PDC (which is sort of boring) we could do a slow drive-by kelly's office and stalk her. we could check out the schindler house or just lie by the pool with cocktails in hand and have a couple of great dinners. anyone in? or would i be pulling back the curtain on the wizards if i did this?
oh and readers would be included as well. OF course.

I'm in. Can't do it weekend of Oct 13th/14th, but I am wide open other than that. I would love to stay at Viceroy. Megan, are you anywhere near Trove? I don't know my southern Cal that well....

trove as in grove? nah. that's up in hollywood/l.a. the viceroy is in santa monica, which is closer to me.

i'm out the 24th or whatever that weekend before halloween is (my sister's art is being inducted into the de young museum's permanent collection-have to go cheer her on and act all cool and 'i know the artist' like)

Considering the last "day off" I had was when I delivered baby #2 almost 2 years ago, I think I deserve it.
Count me in!! I think I'll ask for it for my 5th anniversary present! LOL.

beachbungalow8 said...

um, YA! melissa, you do need to hang with a bunch of bloggers for a weekend in L.A. it will recharge you! or exhaust you depending how it shapes up.

Count me in!!! I would love to meet all of you, but I think I will pass on any stalking unless gorgeous George Boy Clooney is in town.

Sounds fun!

oh, patricia, i'm with you. i have no need or desire to stalk kelly wearstler. but the blog world seems so enamored, so i figured it would be great 'bait' to get people excited about it!

i can take you guys to celeb infested spots so you can 'see' famous. but that's boring too.

i'm good with hanging out,blabbing, shopping and great dinners.

Great idea Megan, it would be so much fun!

kate (pm) said...

me! please! but I'm not sure which weekend I could make yet - need to coordinate with the office (taking long autumn weekends here are popular here in the Northeast), etc..

Mrs. Blandings said...

I think this sounds fabulous - I have no idea how you will pick a date, but I will do my best. It is a terrific idea.

No, I mean trove, the store (www.trovelaguna.com). But I am looking at a map now, it's do-able, but not exactly in your neighborhood, huh?

I think we should try to meet with Ruthie Sommers for a cocktail.

I don't meant to be cheap, but at $450ish a night, I may only camp out at Viceroy for one night. I will be the one dragging my little suitcase down the street to the HoJo on night 2.

Joni, gonna have to keep costs down... I can be your roommate, right?? :)

beachbungalow8 said...

oh! i know the trove! yes,yes. they don't have a website. i've called them about some items before. yep. really cool looking shop. i'd go there for sure. it's an hour away though.

well, there are def. cheaper stays in that vicinity. meridian is one. and i'll see if we can get a group rate.

also, i thought i'd ask vanessa at turquoise to have dinner with us. i'll call ruthie sommers and see if a can snag her too. wouldn't that be great?

not that i have any clout. but all anyone can ever say is 'no' and be flattered.

Mrs. Blandings said...

At 450/night Mrs. Blandings will be sleeping on the beach outside Bungalow 8 :)

Mrs. Blandings, that means you and I shoud be roommates. :)

Megan, you little cock-star, when are we BOOKING this shit?? I am ready to meet up with all of you.

beachbungalow8 said...

you all are cock-stars in my book. let's start figuring this out. i'm thinking contributing to the kwid/krozan fabulous fund, may not be worth the clams they want us to shell out. maybe we go there for appetizers and a drink.

it's worth a gander for sure. but that's really hotel alley and there are plenty of great, less spenny places to stay.

i'll look into it.

it's all about me, really.
