Twitter Tweet Up In West Chester Tonight. Chester County. Thanksgiving Eve.

So there is a Twitter Tweet-Up tonight in West Chester at Barnabys. 5:30 until whenever.

Can you imagine the excitement of the attendees? Because they get to meet me? I wonder if they even slept last night. Do you think? Probably not. Here are a few guidelines that I'll be printing on flyers for my adoring fans. Take a few minutes to memorize them before entering the lair* that I'm sure is being built for me as we speak:

- Always remember, when in conversation with me, I like to dictate the tone and pace.

- When listening to one of my hilarious tales, you may think of something that YOU want to add. That is fine. If time allows. (You may want to jot a quick note so you don't forget what your "interesting" story is). If you think the story isn't that interesting, rehearse it with a friend or member of the clergy in the bathroom. Ask them to be honest with you as to whether they think it's something I would want to listen to.

- On first approach, don't look me directly in the eye.

- If you have a gift to present to me, make sure to flaunt it to the others before giving it to me. It will give them a chance to run out and get me a gift so they don't look like a fools.

-Please, no photography. As I've stated before, I will allow charcoal sketches of me and construction paper art as long as the glitter is used at a minimum. There will be scales available for the weight of your glitter. I think it's two ounces. Ask one of my handlers if you don't know how to weigh things. They'll be happy to help.

- But most of all, enjoy yourself.

And speaking of meeting strangers that you only have talked to online, here's a post detailing the account of when I met a few West Chester bloggers. Maybe you know them? To read the story of that classic night last year, click here.

*I hope it has a Roman feel with a dash of 1976. And if I see one piece of tape holding up the streamers I'm out of there. Remember, nothing tacky!

Whoa! Is that people already lining up? Waiting for me?

Former Fat Chick said...

you sure that's not the line for Walmart? They do open at 4am sharp, with thier people trampling deals, I mean door busting deals!

Dr Zibbs said...

Former Fat - it's a very long line. It actaully wraps around the Walmart TWICE, then to the Barnabys of West Chester.

Kristen said...

Do you know how bummed I am that I don't get to meet you and make you art with glitter? Very. If I could make it, I would try and squeak in an extra 1/2 ounce of glitter or so. Not because I'm a rebel but just cuz I think you deserve it. Have fun!

ChesterCo_PA said...

I can't wait to sketch DrZibbs. If there are two things I excel at when drinking, it's sketching and singing. I may combine both...if you're lucky.

Can I do your portrait with the Bedazzler?

Dr Zibbs said...

Kristen - I wish you could be there to. Maybe make the glitter art today and you can PRETEND you're there.

Get the whole family to act it out. Make a game out of it.

Kristen said...

Good compromise. Can we add macaroni too? The baby doesn't have the dexterity to apply glitter. And I'm going to have to insist that ChesterCo_Pa NOT be allowed to use a bedazzler b/c that's just not fair to the rest of us. Even though she did organize the whole thing.

Kim Wood said...

I'm bringing playdough for a sculpture, I hope you'll stay still and gaze at me while I work.
I'll also be sure and consult Father Kelley in the back- I hope he's coming!

ChesterCo_PA said...

If I can't use the Bedazzler, I'm bringing condoms to create a life-like likeness of DrZibbs in balloon art.

Dr Zibbs said...

Macaroni art? I love macaroni are. I think I wrote a post about it. Something about a sketch artist for a police department that only worked in macaroni (i made it up of course)

As for the bedazler and play-do and condoms, maybe I'll schedule to do a sitting so people can create their version of me. Then, make it into a traveling show.

It's too bad I cannot attend but in my absence I have sent several "challenged" friends of mine with Mac N Cheese art they made themselves. Several of them are "little people".

Gwen said...

Have fun! Be sure to take the skull-topped walking stick in case you need to beat off adoring fans.

SkylersDad said...

But what about genuflecting before shaking your hand? Did you get rid of that rule?

JenJen said...

If I left now I might get there by 530p sometime next week.
This invitation is fixed and rigged so that only local admirers can attend.
Not fair!
Sit ins and outs!

Dr Zibbs said...

I'm home. I'm not sure but there may be 3 more babies born soon. Enough said.

Eric Lewis said...

Yes Dr., I'm doing my part.

Dr Zibbs said...

JenJen - I will alert you when I go on tour.

Eric - Good time last night. Lots o' laughs.
