Boxers 'n' Briefs: Fourteenth Night

Hello, Letterboxers! It seemed a bit early after my last post to have blogged on Friday, so I decided to wait until after the weekend, and really build up your appetite for my briefs. (That didn't come out so good, did it?)

Really, the week/weekend could be summarized as such:

A significant number of AQ posts in anticipation of this last weekend's "Twelfth Night" gathering in Asheville, NC.

A brief and eerie silence (no Dixie).

And finally, a deluge of posts about what a wonderful Gathering it was.

BUT, for those foolish enough to crave MORE in the way of summarization (seems rather oxymoronic: "Expanded Summaries"), here we go! Starting with last Wednesday...

1) You've got to know when to hold 'em,

2) Know when to fold 'em...

3) Know when to walk away,

4) And know when to run!

5) If it's Tuesday, this must be Brussels...

6) You say you want a resolution?

7) Button, button, who's got the button?

8) As the Watchmaker asked the Policeman: "What makes a Coptic?"

9) Orange you glad to be in SoCal? (I can't believe I stooped this low...)

10) Breaking the mold.

11) And now, a message from our sponsor.

12) Big Boxing.

13) But WAIT! How much would you expect to pay for all this?...

14) No comprende.

15) That's an order!

16) Our thoughts are with you, AMEEBZ.

17) If you sinew must pay the price!

18) Cache and Carry.

19) "Is Homeschoolmommy having a Gathering?" "I dunno... Alaska!"

20) The depths some Boxers will go to...

21) Ok, now this is just kinda creepy.

22) And to wrap it up... more GREAT news! Congratulations!!!!

I would like to point out (to those that do NOT follow the North Carolina board) that, even far away here in California, I had a BLAST reading about the Asheville gathering. I felt a part of it; there was so much enthisiasm and sheer delight, both leading up to the event and afterwards. I didn't include many links to it here because, well, there was just too much! But if anyone wants to live vicariously through the virtual mayhem that those NCers seem to thrive on, check out the "Letterboxing North Carolina" board... I promise you won't be disappointed!

"I dunno... Alaska"
