I’m drawn strongly to the idea of flash mobs (aka smart mobs), pre-arranged surreal gatherings that look spontaneous.

Turns out there will be a wacky one in Portland this Saturday. Should I watch? Should I participate? Ah, decisions, decsions. I do suspect I’ll be there, in any case.

    Wish I was going to be in town for that! I’d do it.

    Although when you first mentioned “Flash Mobs” I had an image of everyone showing up in trench coats with nothing underneath.

    Hi, I just read your Blogathon from July 2000, and I wanted to tell you how much I enjoyed it. It did end on a very poignant note, and I can relate, as my mother died at 52 also, of cancer also, throat cancer, but I was not 19, I was 17. Still, that similarity alone struck me. I’ve bookmarked your blog and will be back for more! 🙂 Cheers.

    So did you go? and if yes, how was it? They had one recently here in the Twin Cities, but I didn’t learn of it until I saw it on the evening news. Looked kind of fun.

    Hope you have fully recovered from the Blogathon! I’m very proud of you for making it through!

    Sadly, we had a busy day and totally forgot about it until it was long over. I still have the bruise from where I kicked myself.
