The she-blogging shindig.

So! Are you going to BlogHer? I’m going to BlogHer! If you’re there, will you say hi to me? I promise to say hi back. Maybe I’ll even say other things, too!

Not only am I going to BlogHer—I’m also speaking. Like, officially. On a panel! With this one! And this one! And this one will moderate! To distract everyone from the inanity of whatever it is I’ll be spouting, I shall wear nothing but pasties and lederhosen. And oven mitts. On my feet.

I’m a little afraid of this year’s conference. There are so very many people going that I want to meet--way more then there were last year, when there were already way more people to meet than there were minutes in the conference, and I spent the whole time weeping and laughing and weeping and laughing at the same time while drinking beer. This time I may go into complete overload and simply throw myself to the ground and thrash about, shrieking. If this happens, I beg you--take no pictures of the me-spectacle. Much as I may horrify and delight.

I've been thinking about this. And you know what? I think I'll go. I really do.

Ok, so I knew I was going to go a while back, but would you promise to say hi to me on my blog first so we can skip the awkward phase? You'll see that I have promised to lick everyone going to BlogHer, but I don't want to scare you off...

licking is encouraged. thats why we salt our rims. wow, that sounded pervy. sorry.

I'll be there and I'll totally say Hi to you, if I can get it out before I turn all red and start stuttering and acting like a moron.

I wanted to tell you that I hope you are feeling better about your move. Having just done the same thing, I can sympathize. Even though we've moved to somewhere we've always wanted to be, I feel overwhelmed at the moment with everything that has to be done to start a new life and I really miss my friends and my neighborhood.

Hope things are going well for you and you are getting settled into a new routine.

Something tells me it will be sro at that panel discussion, if only to see in you pasties and lederhosen. Throw in a Carmen Miranda hat of real fruit, and I'll get there early enough to sit in the front row and hold up an AI-style sign with your name on it.

Hi Alice! I'll be there! And I'll be easy to spot! Because I'll be drinking and wearing a Fussy tee! Like everyone else! Tra la!

Seriously, though, I'll probably have to come up and mutter something incomprehensible about how nice it is to meet you and then slink away feeling stupid. See you in a few weeks!

Oh, I wish, I wish. I've been pouting on and off for weeks.

I'll be there and I'm really looking forward to meeting you. You are amazing.

Oh, gosh...

I know you are like, "Who the hell is this commenting on my blog?"I know... long time reader, first time commenter.Just to say I am going and if I see you, I will for sure say hi.And I will try my hardest to quash the urge to steal your oven mitts.
July 10, 2006 | Unregistered CommenterKelly
I will be there, and if I am not in my own weird "I fucking know no one here, why did I come alone?" hazy panic I will say "hi". Otherwise I will be the one in the corner looking like the loser that no one remembers at the high school reunion.

oh, hell. I tried for weeks to find a way to go, but short of selling my body (which, frankly, I do not think would fetch enough for round trip airfare and a hotel room) there is simply no way.I am off to rend my tunic and moan about it, a bit.

The Queen is coming, and dragging others from my blogging corner with me. I shall do my best NOT to stalk you, but try and act rather subdued and too cool when we meet. Because we WILL meet.

Ok, so that last line sounded stalker-ish. But it wasn't really...I think.

Anyway, there is a little, do I put this...anxiety going on within my blogging circle that some of you old school/bigger Mommies won't pay attention to us newer/smaller Mommies. They are all too chicken to tell you, but I've never been one to hold back.

So here is the thing, we can all just come and say Hi to you and Heather right? There won't be a gaggle of bodyguards keeping us away or anything, will there? And there is no truth to the rumor that you guys don't read anyone new or don't comment on anyone other than your own little blogging clique, right?

That's what I thought.

And I'll wear my leapord dishwashing gloves if you really wear those oven mitts.

I am going to go ... and I must beg of you to smile and nod as if you have any idea who I am, if I wave at you. This is all if I don't spontaneously combust before the 28th.
July 11, 2006 | Unregistered Commenterjulia
Thanks to the awesome Suebob, I will be there, and I will definitely say Hi. And try not to act like a complete dork, because I've been reading your blog for-EVER, and will probably feel a little starstruck. Then I will drink a beer or two and commence with the laughing and weeping.

I'm going to Blogher.

July 11, 2006 | Unregistered Commenterroo
Sigh. Here's hoping we can get Blogher to Chicago someday.
July 11, 2006 | Unregistered CommenterLotta
I'm going. I won't talk to you I'll just point you out to the people near me and say "OH MY GOD! IT'S F'ING FINSLIPPY" even though I know your name is Alice and so does everybody else.

Then I'll make someone else go up and ask for your autograph.

Okay - maybe I'll say. (But probaby it will be somewhere between these two things).

I meant to say that maybe I'll say hi, but I suck at proof reading.
Regarding my previous post, my name really is Linda. I was not being mean.

I can't believe the Queen of Spain ratted me out like that.
July 15, 2006 | Unregistered CommenterMocha
I am going and have been breathing into a paper bag since I purchased the tickets.
July 17, 2006 | Unregistered CommenterVery Mom
