LJ-Meeting in LJ-City? - Part 01

So, Dari tilia_tomentosaarrived home safely and this is what Mitja mitjablazicjust incidentally "threw" in the air while we were at his and Viki's vksiplace for a lovely dinner he prepared for us.

"Why wouldn't we organize a meeting of LJ-people in Ljubljana?"

License plates in Ljubljana are adorned with LJ, so this is probably the only proper and fit city for such a meeting and the idea just started swirling in my head. Really, why not? Now tell me, would you be prepared to spend a few days in exotic, unknown, wild, dangerous Slovenia and its capital city Ljubljana? Sometimes in Spring 2010? Let's say in April or in May - probably the most beautiful time of the year here? And I am very serious about it all.

Why not make a crazy thing and really decide to come here?  Let's work on this a bit, okay? I can't promise heaven, but I think we could take care of some fun and exploring and good times. I am pretty sure of that. The more, the merrier!

To be continued... with your assistance.

And this is the picture that caused it all. Five people, four blogs, two countries. We need a larger picture. Literally.

If it wasn't so far away I'd LOVE to be part of lj-in-lj, especially with all of those fine gents around. Sounds like so much fun.

Very tempting idea...and a late April/May timeline might work well for me. I'm interested in pursuing this further..

It's a deal. I will start forming it all. :)

I would love to...but won't have time or money. Unless there's a good eLearning conference in LJ.....

*writes down*

Find a conference for Dr. E. Austria and Italy are also okay? Nearby parts?

paterson_si
Sep. 16th, 2009 05:39 pm (UTC)
Well..... I thought of it (well, Mitja) first, so it's Ljubljana and then Cancun. :)

well, considering I'm already seriously looking at a trip that way in late May... prolly too late for the proposed LJ gathering tho.
paterson_si
Sep. 16th, 2009 05:39 pm (UTC)
Oh, I am just testing the terrain now. Late May is also okay, I guess. I will see where it will take us. :)

You know, that could be quite possible. I know you have now extended an invitation to both me AND Tom, so let's see if he and I can match up vacation schedules and DO THIS!

Sep. 16th, 2009 05:40 pm (UTC)
It would make me happy. :) And Mitja and Viki, too. ;)

I'm wondering if I could convince Brian that it's time to visit his brother in Germany about that time...
paterson_si
Sep. 16th, 2009 05:40 pm (UTC)
I think it would be the BEST time for him to visit his brother.

Just sayin'

That sounds like an idea. Perhaps Dari can pack me up in her suitcase next time.

It was occupied by her pussy this time. :) So talk to her in advance.

How popular are YOU!!!??

Oh gosh - what a fantasy of mine to actually attend an "LJ User" meeting, as well as get to meet you, and Igor, and everyone else, plus come to Europe...

I will dream... :-)

What a cute photo. Just curious--is there enough similarity between Slovenian and Bulgarian where you can understand one another, or do you speak English when you're interacting in a group?

When I was a child there was a TV show called The Girl from UNCLE and in one episode they did a very silly song called "My Bulgarian Baby." The refrain involved repeating the explanation "Oy!" many times. I believe that would be OK for Cockneys or Yiddish, but not necessarily proper Bulgarians...
paterson_si

Similarity between the two languages? Practically none. We used English all the time. :)

Oy doesn't sound Bulgarian at all.
