Convention

Halfbakery convention, like, you know, in person somewhere

I attended a writing group for years (and years and years) and at one point after a decade or two, the person who ran the salon gathered us all in at a small convention space in a hotel for the evening. We all read our (fill in the blank--poetry, fiction, reporting, etc.) We were from one city but I think the idea of a Halfbakery reading might eventually have merit. And some of my ideas, at least attain a level of stupidity and/or naivete so stunning as can only be considered a form of poetry. Of the gods. Or not. For that matter, what about a Halfbakery bakery, where idea-readings take the place of scary/crappy poetry readings?

Half-Baked http://web.archive....ers_27_20Convention
Though this particular idea is long gone. [DrCurry, Oct 21 2004]

       What would they serve at the buffet, halfbaked croissants and fishbones?
What would the attendees drink Half & Half?
Would there be troll detectors at the entrance?
I think there are some serious organizational problems to be solved, but it could be fun.

       God, why would anyone want to do that? It'll never happen.

       Tried this one. I couldn't find any nearby Halfbakers, so I made my own out of balloons, rags and old scraps of wood.   

       [FarmerJohn]'s been dominating the conversation, but [UnaBubba] got some attention when his head violently exploded. [po] seems to be obsessed with the cat (or vice versa, it's hard to tell).
