B Minus 1 and Counting

I guess it's time to start this Blogging of BlogHer business. I'm going to take a cue from one of my idols, Sweetney, and update whenever the mood strikes. I think it's going to be that kind of weekend. I also assume that to facilitate this, there will be ethernet connections around the dining tables and in the pool and the potted plants, this being a blogging convention and all.

Or, as Nate calls it, NerdCon '06.

This weekend will be full of inside blog references and links and all kinds of stuff that my non-blogging readers will not give a hoot about. Fair warning. I'll try to compensate with many pretty pictures. Maybe even some pictures of boobs. Boobs we will name, just for you, MetroDad.

You can call mine Lucy and Ethel until we think of something better.

Okay, to bed. Lucy and Ethel have to get up at 4:30am for a flight to San Jose.

If you want to find me at BlogHer, look for these glasses which are on my head 24/7. The visually impared can feel around for the bulldog teeth imprints down the arms.

Have a safe flight. Can't wait to hear about Lucy and Ethels adventures.
San Jose will never be the same!

Dude! Yours have names!

If mind aren't named by YOU and YOU only by Sunday, I will banish you from my blogroll.

I told MetroDad to send me his underwear and I would make sure they made it up the flagpole at the Hyatt.

How tall are you? I may not be able to see the sunglasses on your head if you are really tall due to my my own vertical challenge.

Hmmm...what can you name your boobs?

I'm reminding of previous naming contests we've participated in... like when we had to name the class guinea pigs in 2nd grade. In that vein, how about...

Carter and Mondale?

or

Sunshine and Moonlight?

(I vote for Carter and Mondale.)

I hope you have an amazing time!

Get smashed at least once, and eat lots of cookies for me, please. (Assuming there are cookies. Which there must be. Right?)

I await with bated breath the opportunity to live vicariously through your posts.

Have fun! I think I'd name my boobs Loretta and Tammy since I'm in Nashvegas. ;) Looking forward to reading about NerdCon '06 (With Boobs!). Snort.

You're probably there already. Have a drink for me by the pool. I'll be there tomorrow afternoon. I am looking forward to the first missives out of San Jose today.

Have a fabulous time! Be sure to share what you learn and what you see for those of us who can't go.

*both* my boobs are called Violet, because of their shrinking act after i had kids (2, count 'em TWO cup sizes, one cup per kid...thank you very much).

i'll be looking for, what are sure to be, any number of important/impressive stories about BlogHer carried on CNN... aren't they doing a doc, too? actually, i was going to produce one, myself, but those assholes at Nike dropped their sponsorship at the last second (something about thinking this was a conference for "joggers"...)

have fun! and don't worry about us, we'll be right here, exactly where you left us, when you get back. xox
