Blog lunch at the 51st ATA Conference October 14, 2010

Posted by Jill (@bonnjill) in ATA.

It’s that time of year again – the ATA Conference is upon us and with that the ever popular Blogger Lunch for fellow bloggers and those of you who read our blogs. Several people have been asking me about the lunch at the conference this year. Thanks for keeping me on track. I have become the Queen of Procrastination this year, and it is driving my sister crazy. Since Eve Lindemuth Bodeux and Corinne McKay are local I suggested they choose a spot. Eve suggested PF Changs on 15th and Market.

We have traditionally met for lunch on Thursday, the first day of the conference. We will meet in the lobby right at 12:40 or so. I will be presenting the First-Time Attendees presentation until 12:30. Feel free to meet me in the back of the room if you want to be sure to find me.

If you are interested in joining us, either add a comment or send us an e-mail so we can be sure to look for you.

Grrrrr.. I LOVE our bloggers’ lunch, but unfortunately we already have another lunch that day. Let me see if I can move it… Thanks for organizing.

Count me in. Me and my Fidus interpres”. 🙂
Glad there was still time to organize a meeting for us bloggers this year.

3. Abigail Dahlberg - October 14, 2010

I’m in, Jill. Looking forward to catching up with everyone.

“Please …SVP” — tautology? (;

Sorry for off topic.

Jill (@bonnjill) - October 14, 2010

RSVP = répondez s’il vous plaît, meaning “Please respond”. I’m not a French speaker, so used it the way we would in English. I didn’t think about it being redundant.

It’s French for respond so very promptly.

I stole that from Laverne & Shirley, which used to be my favorite tv show growing up (have I just given away my age?)

No worries. I loved Laverne and Shirley too. “1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 Schlemiel! Schlimazel! Hasenpfeffer Incorporated!”

5. Susan Starling - October 14, 2010

Hi, I’d love to join you. And I’ll bring the Milka Adventskalender. 🙂

6. Rachel McRoberts - October 15, 2010

I’m only just starting to blog, but I would still love to join you for the lunch if you’ll have me!

Jill (@bonnjill) - October 15, 2010

Sure, we look forward to meeting you.

Missed it last year and hope to be able to keep the slot free this year. It’s on my calendar!

Hi Jill,
