I Habba Code

Nothing quite like going on a five day trip all by myself…

…and returning to my husband (who is tired of solo parenting and endlessly mediating sibling quarrels)…

… to find myself sick as a damn dog.

I spent the whole flight home in varying states of dizziness and unconsciousness releasing gusts of the mightiest wind upon my poor, unsuspecting aisle mate.

[There was a crying baby behind us too!]

Today I want nothing more than to wallow in my bed, snorting around in the covers as if there were lost truffles buried in the sheets.

Alas! My boss missed me and the task list is long.

I have many stories to tell…

Like how I got all naked with two gorgeous bloggers.

Or how Tipsy Kyla gave my real-life, BONE-DRY, friends with a newborn baby a packet of KY lube.

There’s this year’s Blogher Roommate Outfit Change Frequency Report to be made.

Oh, and I touched Jennster’s boob!

But for now, I'm busy mouth breathing and taking swigs from the DayQuill bottle.

More later…

So awesome to meet and have the chance to dance together! Hope you feel better soon and am fighting to remain healthy myself. Nothing like a long weekend of partying and airline flight to really insure you weaken your immune system.

And no, my incredible immaculate BlogHer conception never happened.

Have a swig of Dayquil for me!

flutter said...

You are ill, clearly because you didn't get to spend time with flutter. Come along now, just admit it. :)

You give awesome hugs

Kyla said...

Glad I made the short list. That Tipsy Kyla, she's a hoot...or so I hear...I don't quite remember her by morning.

Ali said...

JCK said...

Now that is a sucky way to reenter the world of husband and two children. So sorry you got sick.

It was great to meet you via the hallway.

ThatGirl said...

jennster said...

Patience said...

Poor baby!! Never a good idea to get on a plane with a cold! I did that and ended up deaf for two days and near broken ear drums!!

Get better soon!!

Mrs. G. said...

Lu said...

Feel better soon.

zellmer said...

Ah, but isn't it good to be home?
I loved meeting you and that you kept calling me Zellmer, just like my high school friends always did. You are fabulous without acting like you know how fabulous you are. The best kind.
Now get better so we can hear those stories.
xoxo

Maggie said...

Dayquil = Mom's friend anytime.

Glad you had fun. Glad you're back.

Mrs. Schmitty said...

Just a few things:

1. I'm sorry you are sick!
2. Thank goodness the baby was behind you, then you could blame the wind problem on a poopy diaper.
3. I heard about the naked episode. So jealous!
4. I hope to meet you next year at BlogHer '09 cause you are awesome!

Circus Kelli said...

Ack! I hope you feel better VERY soon, love!

QT said...

Get better soon, sweets. Always good to see you~

lildb said...

it was so good to see you; not enough of you, actually.

mouth breathing isn't so terrible when you consider the quality of farts toddlers pass. i'd forgotten, somehow, while in SF, the gigantically terrible smells emitted from my three y.o.'s bum. i'm not suggesting you're lucky to be ill. not at all.

just, you know, kind of suggesting you're lucky.

Lotta said...

Seriously, if you ate anything from the lobby cafe it's what gave you the mighty wind.

Please let me know when your wind blows you into Chicago so we can go out to dinner.

Missing you.

Backpacking Dad said...

Feel better.

GoteeMan said...

furiousBall said...

melissa said...

i hope that you had a fabulous time...despite getting sick!

Redneck Mommy said...

Damn girl. Here I thought the site of my nekkid body would have been enough to not only burn out your retinas but all those little sicky germs clinging to your system.

I'll try harder next time. I won't pluck the nipple hairs. That ought to work.

feel better soon, love.

GRAY MATTER MATTERS said...

Reason #246 that I worship you. The title of your post alone made me snort. (And I think pee myself a little)

Tabba said...

Damselfly said...

Oh, stop, you're making me jealous. ;) Hope you feel better!

There are a crap-ton of people with the BlogHer-bola virus.

Including me.

I wish we had run into each other! Maybe next year, or maybe I'll wander down your way when BlogHer goes on tour.
