TequilaCon Canceled!

Hey guys, sorry to tell you like this, but I totally have to cancel TequilaCon. I just found out that I’ve got a thing I need to do that weekend, so, you know. Some other time.

Wasn’t that hilarious when I tricked you? OMG, I’m peeing. Wait… what? You just canceled your flight? No… no. I was totally joking! It’s still on! TequilaCon isn’t really canceled! And now it’s going to cost you an extra $400 to rebook? But… I didn’t think you’d believe me. Are you serious? Why would you cancel your flight? And how did you even do that so fast? I mean… it was just a joke.

Oh god. Oh, I feel sick. I’m sick right now. I’m so sorry. See, this is why I hate April Fool’s Day.
Look – if it really was canceled, would Dave2 have designed this kickass poster? Of course not! See – it’s still on!


So for those of you who didn’t fall for my clever April Fool’s trick, here are the details once again:

TequilaCon ’08: Yes It’s Still On

  1. You can call me, 'Sir' Says:

    It turns out that this will be two days after my thesis defense, so I’ll be able to show up in the middle of a two-day bender. Your timing, it is impeccable.

    OK. I’ll admit. For a SPLIT second I thought
    “Oh no. This bitch is crazy. No effing way! My fundraiser! My weekend! You know what? SCREW HER! I’m going anyway! I don’t care if I’m the only one there – TEQUILACON WILL LIVE ON THROUGH ME!!”
    But, only for a second. I swear.

    sir: awesome! does your thesis have anything to do with the internet or tequila or bowling? if so, bring it along!
    miss britt: ha! glad it was only a split second… that’s why i really do hate april fools jokes. and at this point, i’m well aware that tequilacon is an unstoppable force over which i have no influence or control. it has a life of its own.

    Yeah, I just booked my hotel for TC 08, and have my plane tickets. I’d have to kill you, Jenny, and that would be a shame, since I really want to kiss you more than kill you.
    I have a love/hate affair with April Fool’s Day. today just happens to be my mom’s birthday, AND my twin daughters’ birthday! If anyone is sick of April Fool’s Day jokes, it’s those three women.
    Ack, I cannot BELIEVE my girls are 21 today. How the hell did THAT happen?

  6. Dave2 Says:

    Awww… I didn’t want any tequila anyway. :-(

  7. brandon Says:

    people used to fall for this back in the early days of the internet. that’s why turnout for the first tequilacon was only three people.

  8. Pants Says:

    Argh, man! I wish I could go. Waaaaaaaahhhhh! But it won’t be happening for me unless I take to the pole (not likely – too much therapy to go down “that” road) or win Lotto (also unlikely, as the Mormons don’t believe in Lotto).
    Someday, I’ll be done with school and I won’t be broke. But until then, I’ll play along with tequilla from my closet in the basement of my parent’s home (with my fat cat).

    karl: your mom *and* your daughters? that sucks for them. how many times did you pull the, “OMG… I totally forgot your birthday! I’m so sorry!” prank?
    dave2: seriously? because i was all prepared to buy you unlimited shots of tequila in philly, but i guess if you don’t want them…
    brandon: thank god you and jill didn’t fall for it! where would we all be today if you had?
    pants: can’t you just drive into nevada and try your luck at roulette? keno? maybe you’ll win enough for airfare to philadelphia! ;)

  10. Hilly Says:

    Wait, you mean I have to give all that money BACK?
    I spent it in Vegas!

  11. sizzle Says:

    That poster kicks ass!

  12. jenny Says:

    hilly: on hookers or roulette?
    sizzle: doesn’t it? that dave… he’s some talent.

  13. vahid Says:

    TequilaCon is cancelled! Fine, whatever, I want my membership dues back.

  14. kat! Says:

    man, just when i got the a-okay to attend.
    oh, wait….

  15. Dustin Says:

    Seriously, the bad assness of that poster makes me think we legitimately need corporate sponsoring. I mean, we’re a prime market. Alcoholics who spend too much time on the internet….what won’t we buy?!?!

  16. jenny Says:

    vahid: check is in the mail, brother.
    kat!: you can’t fool me again! i know you’re not coming.
    dustin: there’s nothing we won’t buy! we won’t buy nothing! don’t ever leave me alone in a hotel room with QVC. wild times.

  17. heidi Says:

    bummer! thats the day of gold cup down here in va and theres no way I’d make it up there in time. It does sound like fun so hopefully in the future I’ll attend!

  18. Absurdist Says:

    I will be there. Can I get on the mailing list?
