#SLPeeps Flash Mob at #ASHA12

Update (10/21): We have sent out an email with more details on the flash mob! Because of the nature of flash mobs, we are keeping the majority of the details between the people who are participating. πŸ™‚ However, I will say that there has been some amazing group effort involved, and it is shaping up to be pretty incredible. If you would like to do it with us, we would be more than happy! Email me at atklingensmith @ gmail . com, and I will send you the information!

Update (10/15): There is now a listly list for this! We’re still sorting out a couple details about the flash mob, but it looks like it’s definitely going to happen and definitely going to be crazy fun! πŸ™‚ Add yourself to the list so we know who is planning on attending. Here the link:Β http://bit.ly/WqYh53

I considered entitling this post, “Wait, How Did I Get Roped Into This?!” Because yes, we are going to be doing a flash mob at ASHA Convention. (Go ahead and blame @Pediastaff for throwing out the idea to us!) But you crazy #SLPeeps have a way with shenanigans, so here goes…!

  1. Okay…a couple of things.
    1) technically @atklingsmith is not a hashtag…it’s a handle. #SLPeeps is a hashtag. πŸ™‚
    2) for the cadence to work out – it might need to be “so tweet me maybe” instead of “so follow me maybe” follow has too many syllables – unless you leave off the “so.”

    I have no idea about the signs. It’d probably be easiest to make them ahead – but then people may not have them…so make them wednesday for those that don’t have them???

    • 1. Hmmm maybe we could say “here’s our hashtag” (talking about the #slpeeps)?
      2. Good point. Either sounds good to me.
      Yeah the signs thing is a little trickier. That could work though. Or we could tell anyone who isn’t able to make it Wednesday to make theirs ahead of time, and then anyone who can come Wednesday can use our supplies. I could just grab small posters/markers or whatnot ahead of time and ask people to give a dollar or two if they use it? Do you think that would work?

  2. So now I’m super bummed that I’m not going to ASHA. This looks like so much fun! I want to see video!

    A couple of thoughts:
    1. You’ll have to find a time and place that there are a lot of people but not a lot of noise AND you won’t disrespect anyone. Tricky tricky. The time that comes to mind for me is if ASHA is anything like TSHA there is always a big crowd waiting for the exhibit hall to open.
    2. Signs should have handles on one sign and our #slpeeps hashtag on the other.
    3. I think signs should definitely be bigger than 8×11. How about this 11×17? I picked a lovely Twitterific blue. http://www.officemax.com/office-supplies/paper/colored-paper/product-prod2460540
    4. I’m working on some lyric suggestions.
    5. Anyone want to cover my caseload and pay for me to get to Atlanta? Bummed! =(

  3. Here is my pitch for the chorus #slpeeps-ified.

    Hey, I just met you, And this is crazy, But here’s my handle, So tweet me, maybe?

    It’s hard to email directly, But here’s my handle, So tweet me, maybe?

    Hey, we just met you, And this is crazy, But here’s our hashtag, So join us, maybe?

    And all the other S L Peeps, Say here’s our hashtag, So tweet us, maybe?

    The last line is clunky, anybody got a suggestion to fix?

  4. I’m more than happy to help with the signs project Audrey. Graphic design and anything artsy is my stress relief so anything you need ahead of time or on wednesday let me know:)

    • Be careful or I’ll take you up on that! πŸ˜‰ Haha. Are you planning on coming out on Wednesday night? A group of us are doing either dinner or drinks (haven’t officially decided yet). We’d love you to join, and then you can be our artsy go-to if needed!!! I’ll also keep you posted about what we decide to do with the posters. Thanks so much!

  5. I wish I were going too! I’m going to have to get offline during ASHA so I don’t pout too much :/.

    Please let the momentum continue for next year’s ASHA convention! I will NOT be missing it as it is only a few hours away! I don’t mind volunteering some energy to some fun stuff next year as well! πŸ˜›
