Dave!Tonight on the news they used the word "sexting" without bothering to define it. The fact that such a word is so pervasive that it is assumed to be generally understood is bizarre to me. They then went on to a segment about how "experts" have declared "texting" to be an addictive behavior for teens, who send text-messages by the hundreds. Next up: "experts" declare water to be wet.

I'd blog about the insanity of it all, but I have to get back to making TequilaCon Attendance Merit Badges...

TequilaCon Merit Badges 2005-2010

One. More. Day. To get everything together. As usual, I am so swamped with work that I'm hopelessly behind.

What is it like to be caught up with everything in your life?

It's been over a decade for me and I can't remember.

    Were they just being exploitative about the word ‘addictive’ or do they really think teenagers are following addict-patterns of behavior? I’m sure it was just the former, but I’m sort-of waiting for technological addictions to crop up in greater number and outside the realm of WoW players.

  2. You can call me, 'Sir' says:

    The fact that tomorrow I’ll be back in the PacNW just made me pee a little.

  3. sizzle says:

    I would not know that feeling of being caught up if it slapped me in the face.

    Looking forward to seeing you!

  4. A. Lewis says:

    So, yeah, help me out here…. has it been two or three (or four?) years since we met at TequilaCon? Man, time flies…..I just remember a hotter than hell room, peanut butter sandwiches, and gin and tonic in the closet with no ice. Oh, and a few hot guys.

  5. Sybil Law says:

    Wish I was going! WAH!
    Hope you get caught up – you work too hard!

  6. Hilly says:

    Oh how I miss Portland 2007…le sigh.

    I hope you all have an amazingly fun time and please drink one (or fifteen) for me!

  7. martymankins says:

    I am sad that I only will have 1 of those merit badges after this weekend. Wishing I could be there. Drink much and drink often.

  8. Sarah says:

    Oh, I need to do laundry. I’m sure people would appreciate if Vahid and I showed up in clean clothes.

  9. Peggy Archer says:

    Where’s the Los Angeles badge? We have tequila here, too!

  10. Lynn says:

    Can I come to Tequilacon?? I live in Vancouver. I love your blog and have been reading it for years and added the odd comment or two. (not odd as in weird, but odd as in once in a while. Oh wait, maybe they were weird too. Can’t remember!)Where and when is it happening? Can I just come and skulk if not officially invited??

  11. whall says:

    Blog Scouts of America… scouting areas of the world to meet, discuss and drink, and distribute Merit Badges.

    Sadly, I’m twinzies with Marty this year – only in possession of the right to have one Merit badge thus far.

    I’m gonna start the lobbying for next year’s location early.

    Austin, anyone?

  12. muskrat says:

    I don’t remember the story behind this event. I think you told me last time you were in Atlanta? Anyway, it looks fun from the pics and posts…maybe next year.
