Jigga what?


Came home from my holiday xmas party jolly as an elf to find a note about how the 20SBlogger meetup ditched Boston for Chicago with no explanation.

What did Sam Adams, the Boston Celtics, Matt and Ben Affleck, NKOTB, Tom Brady, Half the Cast of the office, Maria Menounos, and Amy Poehler do to PO the planning committee? (which I'm guessing I'm not on anymore- lol)

Eeeek!

Who changed it? Weren't there a bunch of you involved??

I'm heated about it being moved. Tons of people in Boston volunteered to help (myself included) but no one ever said "hey, here's what I need you to do." Boooo.

PS - I used to live in NY but I moved to wonderful Boston a few months ago for grad school. =) I totally agree on organizing a fun weekend in Boston for anyone in Boston or NY who can't make it out to Chicago.

True true. But to give them credit, the two girls putting it together ARE from chicago, but come on, Boston is the best place on earth (besides Cleveland, Ohio.. obvi)

You should read the thread on 20sb. It is out of hand. I finally had to unsubscribe from updates because it was pissing me off so much.

Julie Q said...

Dutchess- took u up on your offer and read the 20SB thread about this. and wow, I haven't seen that much cattiness since the halls of 6th grade when I wore pegged jean and turtlenecks under sweaters. it's pretty distasteful. but the good news is there are still plenty of happy fun bloggers out there. Water under the bridge. Bostonians have learned not to hold a grudge or else you will not win a world series for over 86 yrs

i didnt' know a lot of the office cast and amy poehler were from boston! pop culture trivia stored away for future trivial pursuit domination.

emrlds said...

I like to secretly believe that you all would rather have it in Cali. ;)

Oh! Did you know Joel McHale is going to be at the Wilbur Theater in Boston on 12/31? Jealz of your city for that. I think you've got some NYE plans now. ;)
