It must be done so that moving on can occur.
When I first arrived at Blogher, I SHOULD HAVE gone to help Megan.
Jen, Jenny, Katie, Izzy and I were [ostensibly] helping Megan throw The People's Party the Thursday before Blogher began.
Let me come clean right here and now.
Megan did ALL the work leading up to the party and RIGHT when I SHOULD have gone to help her get everything ready, who did I run in to?
Ooops. Not THE BOSS, Bossy.
Bossy convinced me to get on a teeny tiny shuttle bus and ride for an hour and forty five minutes to some small town near Palo Alto to go to a party at Guy Kawasaki's house.
While we were lost on the bus we asked Greeblemonkey for a complete Guy Kawasaki bio.
Guy Kawasaki turned out to be the world's greatest host.
He took me in to his office and added this lil' ol' blog to his website without even stopping to take off his pool hat.
At Guy's house, I finally met Ms. HOOKER FABULOUS.
Then things got a little blurry.
[Or at least I got a little blurry. The house seems to be in perfect focus.]
I met the charming and talented Laid Off Dad on the shuttle back to the hotel.
And, doh! I was late for my own party!
But, late or not, I still managed to enjoy myself.
Here I am getting a good snuggle from Mrs. Flinger and Jenny from Absolutely Bananas.
I got to see Andi and Sarah...
Jennifer and Y...
And Ali Martell...
But then, Amy brought THAT GIRL around again.
She was totally mackin' on me.
So I felt her up.
And then I was officially under her spell.
Later, I met Backpacking Dad, who found me wholly irritating.
[Someone fell into an uncanny valley!]
I stayed up WAY too late talking to my roommate and in the morning, the conference began.
[And this is where I simply want to parade a series of my favorite stolen images before you...]
Lotta was there...
and Angella D.
[Can I pause and tell you what a joy it was to meet WhyMommy? Thanks.]
What a joy it was to meet WhyMommy!
Amanda brought Fin. It was great to meet them in person.
Joanne was there...
K.C. and Ali were looking fine...
Stimey could not have been any cuter...
[This badass was NOT there and that was just plain WRONG.]
It's not just any conference where you can go to a department store to spill hummus on Coach handbags with Amie, Julie, Kelly, Stephanie, Sarah and Kim!
My new girlfriend continued to love me up right...
Though she was a little jealous when I did the dirty dancing with A Cowboy's Wife.
And A Mommy's Story...
Oh, and when I snogged with SlackerMom...
Hey, Jennster... Miss me?
Casey was a little surprised about my burgeoning relationship with Super Blondie.
But she needn't have worried. I was soon swept away by a sweet, young girl...
But Tara has this little Lijit widget.... Oh, my! The things it can do!
There were a couple of workshops...
[Even though they will inevitably wear you right the hell out.]
