Blogging Me. Like That's Any Different Than Any Other Day Around Here.

BlogHer Conference blogging officially begins Thursday. Fair warning: There will be shameless name-dropping, gratuitous photos of favorite online writers, references to alcohol and Amy Sedaris (maybe together?), and gossip.

Definitely gossip.

Because you want to know about me in 10 seconds? I always have a camera on me. And I'm not afraid to use it.

The croc-slandering Motherhood Uncensored:

Respectable academic Her Bad Mother:

Devoted Jesus-loving wife and mother Yvonne:

What else can I tell you about me that I haven't already on Mom101?

-I hate diet soda.
-I am hunky dory with ads on blogs as a rule, and you're welcome to fight me on it at my panel on the Art+Commerce of Blogging Saturday at 2:45 which, hilariously, is sponsored by PR firm Edelman. Why not!
-If I have a glass of wine in my hand, I am likely talking too much.
-For those participating in the Great BlogHer Photo Scavenger Hunt my shoe size is 6.5, my name is Liz, and I will in fact be nursing when I'm not pawning the baby off on my mother.
-Yes, my mother is coming.
-You will like my mother better than me.

-Also, I can't do anything in 10 seconds where writing is concerned. I'm hopelessly verbose.

And this time I won't be able to take that glass of wine away from you and start drinking it myself. Dammit.

It's not possible for me to like your mother better than you....hold up....let me click that. Stay here, ok?


She seems.... amazing. And I read "Socratic Seminar" on her front page... and .... Liz. We have to talk.

I love your mother.

Can she hang out with us? And by "us" I mean to include you because you need to nurse that baby so you're sort of indispensable but WAIT, I LOVE YOU, TOO and you know this.

I'll be pawing at your lovely locks this year and not just photographing them. The gloves are off.

(Can you whisper Socratic Seminar whilst I paw? Think on it.)

I love verbosity. Why use one word when there are at least four others jumping up and down wanting to join in the fun too?

I tried to bring my mother as well, but she remembers the last time she came along to help with Cordy, and refused to join us. Ah well, that's what husbands are for, too.

Like you, if I have wine, I'll be talking more than I should.

Two days! Eeek - need to pack!

Hopelessly verbose

I feel like that should be an album title or something.

Have fun a BlogHer. I'll be thinking of all you ladies and your fun! Not too bitterly, I hope!

Great pics.

I am a 6.5 too! I will find you!

6.5 shoe? Do women actually have feet that small and not fall over when they stand still? Wow. My size 9's seem like canoes now.

No bother, I'll still be stalking you and your mom. It's just be easier to hear me sneaking about, what with me clomping around and all.

Does that mean that the blogosphere will be nearly empty?

You mother has a blog? I'll have to click there in a second.

I did the 10 second thing and I'm not even going...although mine is way too long, because I like to chat too much and I'm way too long winded for just 10 seconds.

My mom isn't showing up until late Thursday night so it looks like Nathan may just join us at the Whiskey Bar. So, I guess it'll be the same as Blogher Business then.

Except you get to drink this time. wooHOOO!!!

While I look forward to meeting your momma, I am more amped about checking out your rack. I'm a boob girl at heart. What can I say.

But thanks for the warning about the camera toting. I'll shall do my best to avoid your lens. I hate having my pic taken.

Unless of course you let me oogle you at will. Then you can snap all the pics you like...

Will your Mom adopt me? Reason I ask is that you are LOVELY, and one day, when I grow up, I want to be lovely too - she did a good job on you.

The comment above mine? Sweetest comment I've ever seen.

And all I had to say was that you've got some teeny tiny feet there, Liz.

I am going to blow up that picture of HBM and Dee Snyder into a poster and hang it up in my family room.
