Mamacita says: Before I forget, click HERE and laugh. I do love humor that requires a lot of prior knowledge. This cartoon almost made me wet my pants. Almost. ALMOST. Shut up.
Before I really calmed all the way down from last year’s BlogHer, it’s almost time for this year’s BlogHer. My adrenaline level is pumping harder and higher by the moment, and the thought of seeing all those AWESOME PEOPLE again makes me smile even when there’s not much here to smile about, what with cleaning out my mother-in-law’s house, grading midterm exams, and trying not to scratch all the massive chigger bites I got from picking blackberries today.
Think, though, of all the coolness factors: I’ll see people I already love, I’ll meet people I know I’ll love, I’ll learn things, I’ll laugh a lot, I won’t get much sleep because I’ll be busy meeting people, my chigger bites will be gone by then, and I have blackbeerries.
Mmmm, blackberries. The best ones still have a reddish tinge. My husband likes them best when they’re soft and very ripe, but I, ever the sour lemon-sucking woman that I am, like my blackberries reddish, not completely black. Ideally, I’ll pop a red one and a ripe in in my mouth at once.
Well, duh, obviously there ARE some things that are better, but this isn’t that kind of blog. (Ask me in person.)
I’ll be taking the train to BlogHer this year. I priced an airline ticket, but the ticket was astronomical to the point of absurdity. The train, on the other hand, was way less than a hundred bucks, round trip. For TWO people. (not times two people: FOR two people) (prepositions are important!) My daughter is riding to Chicago with me; she’ll go visit friends in Chicago while I go visit friends at BlogHer. Yay, Amtrak!
I look forward to seeing y’all up there in Chicago weekend after next. Please find me and hug me. I’m needy that way.
I’ll be the large chick – the one that looks a lot like your mother – running around with the microphone.
Ooh-de-lally, can’t wait.
“had apple for lunch” HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHa, can’t stand it. AWESOME!
