Only as Strong as Weakest Link
The Fourth of July Open Comments Night get together in Philadelphia, left the city with a cracked Liberty Bell and a virulent strain of the infamous link leak virus. Link Leak Virus is a special strain of the indie virus with blogtipping mutations that occur in threes. Many new folks attended because of the patriotic holiday and so the infection has spread through the entire northeast.
Cool links were shared.
- As always Cat Morley came back especially to leave this one. Tortella Design.
- Chris used this one to describe his poetry Fezzik.
- We got a trackback from someone who will talk about us but won’t meet us.
- and we got the URL of a successful mountain racing bike blog.
I’m not sure why HART didn’t bring any recipes with him this time. Maybe he ate before he came.
Overheard Through the Night
Many of the same faces were there, but so were many new ones. These are a few of the statements that were heard. All of them are, of course, taken totally out of context. If you want to know more, I’ve left the comment number so that you can find the thread.
taorist Says: Yeah. My real nameÃ¢â¬â¢s taorist, my last nameÃ¢â¬â¢s .com
Starbucker Says: Hi Christine – and Liz, whatÃ¢â¬â¢s this about thinking in the bathroom?? I must confess when I was very very young I used to read a lot of encyclopedias thereÃ¢â¬Â¦.
Mark Wade Says:
Found something to leave a comment at taorist 🙂 Something about you LizÃ¢â¬Â¦
Ben Yoskovitz says: Ideas coming to people in the bathroom!?!
Bravo! IÃ¢â¬â¢m with you there. Happens to me all the time. IÃ¢â¬â¢ve nearly fallen off the toilet a few timesÃ¢â¬Â¦(Was that too much info? Just tell me if it was, I wonÃ¢â¬â¢t be hurt.)
Joe Says: IÃ¢â¬â¢ll be back shortly, I am going to sit on my lawn (since it is newly mowed) and watch some fireworks. WonÃ¢â¬â¢t be more that about 75-100 comments.
Christine Kane Says: as far as comments goÃ¢â¬Â¦ lots of people are scared to leave them. it took me forever to leave a comment for liz. and i read her blog for a long time.
Cuileann McKenzie Says: My husband who is here with me thought it was hilarious that I was 2 pgs behind the action by the time my comment was ready (so yÃ¢â¬â¢all can laugh too).
Rick Says: I thought that was where your evil side came from, Liz – I assumed some of your time in publishing was spent as an editor.
ME Strauss Says: Why, Mr. Mark, *she said in her best Scarlett OÃ¢â¬â¢Hara* I think you are the kindest man. IÃ¢â¬â¢ve been publishing since my son was born in 1985. I was only 6 years old then, of course. He was a miracle baby.
Fraser Says:anyone still celebrating?
HART (1-800-HART) Says:
Hi Fraser .. Nice to meet another Canadian .. and, if we donÃ¢â¬â¢t already know each other .. Our parents grew up in different neighborhoods together! IÃ¢â¬â¢m sure of it.
Douglas Says: Nah, IÃ¢â¬â¢m here Liz. Yes, it is addictive. I think IÃ¢â¬â¢ll be leaving in a few, though. ItÃ¢â¬â¢s getting fairly late here.
Chris Cree Says:Liz, you ought to know that Fat Boy (the Cat Whisperer figured out it was him) got his aim back. Even without thumbs. So all is well.
Cat Says: Chocolate! I forgot I have a huge bar in the fridge.
Tammy Says: Well, I canÃ¢â¬â¢t stay long ~. . . I have learned something though ~ I think I could just go through and meet all of you on your blogs which is what IÃ¢â¬â¢m working on so when you see Tammy ~ itÃ¢â¬â¢s probably me from LizÃ¢â¬â¢s corner!
andy fossett Says:
damn, itÃ¢â¬â¢s already the fith hereÃ¢â¬Â¦ i somehow managed to totally miss independence day – i live i japan, but iÃ¢â¬â¢m still an american. i must be crasy busy not to have at least planned a bbq. oh well. next year, iÃ¢â¬â¢ll be back stateside, so i wonÃ¢â¬â¢t miss it. double damn, itÃ¢â¬â¢s too rainy to shoot of fireworksÃ¢â¬Â¦ what a waste.
And here’s to a couple of friends who went to Greece to find us. My bad — I gave them a confusing link.

The Mic is ON in Philadelphia!
