Horde meetup at Women in Secularism


An event has been planned for Sunday, May 19, 2013 at 1:00 PM, somewhere in Washington DC. We’re not telling you where, because this is exclusively for the elite, the cream of the crop, the best of the best, good people by invitation only. If you’re interested, you’re going to have to contact the Guardian of the Gate, OnionGirl, and beg for the information. Beg, I tell you! On your knees! Don’t even think about trying to crash the party, because it’s going to be packed with ferocious godless feminists who will emasculate you if you try.

I know where it’s going to be already, but even I am a bit a-skeered.

    I still have to register.

    I’ll be at WIS but I don’t yet know if I can stay for a Horde meetup. It depends on the weather (it’s a long story…).

    I will be at WIS and am interested in such a meetup. :D :D

    Everyone can coo over my latest knitting project: eggplant hats.

    I’ve sent an email to OnionGirl!

    Katherine Lorraine – hurry up and register!

    I’ll be in the bouncy castle if anyone needs me.

  7. 7

    I so wish I could go! Too far away unfortunately. I would totally hang out in that pink bouncy castle.

    Yay! A Gathering! I shall go beg for an invite…..

    (Also: Why does Pharyngula and Dispatches, but not B&W, keep coming up in mobile mode? (Fortunately, I just discovered the link at the bottom that lets you switch).

    Begged for an invite. Hopefully, I get a chance to meet some of you people.

    I’m not going to the conference but I might try to come down just for this.

    OK. I have grovelled, begged and asked politely like a good Canadian.

    If I am not given the coordinates, I will probably just fade away like the printing on a plastic bag that’s been in the sun too long. Then I will degrade.

    Please, for the love of American/Canadian relationship let me attend!

    There, is that good enough?

    Makes catching my homeward flight a little dicey…oh, WTF, why not?

    Dang. I have to leave before that. But I probably don’t qualify as horde anyway, and I’m too sullen to beg.

    [excitedly] Hey Eamon I didn’t know you were going!

    (nifty has a disappointment) (consults WIS2 calendar or events – sees Ophelia BEnson listed as speaker – makes note to get to that talk!!!)

    @13: Yes, indeed, both of us. Making a long weekend/short vacation out of it (Thursday AM thru Monday PM).

    I might not be able to stay long, but I’m up for it. :)

    I am sure you qualify as an honorary member of the Horde…

    Not going to increase my carbon footprint for fun conferences (although I had the money and could allocate time) but looking forward to see some reports/videos on this conference (and the other ones you guy hold).

  20. 20

    I would love to go! Sadly, there is no childcare available so I cannot. I do hope to see lots of the talks online.

  21. 21

    Sounds great! Have the funnest fun hordelings!

    *wail* *whine*

    Why didn’t the Atlantic open in the Mississippi Rift instead.

  23. 23

    Dammit. Now I want to go AND wear a sparkly-pink princess shirt.

    @ 16 – I figured both of you, and “you” was plural! More to the point…hooray!

    Am I allowed to fangirl Ophelia and/or beg for autographs?
