From San Francisco to Wonderland to the Land of Jesse Helms. Quite the Week I'm Having.

Between BlogHer, and overanalyzing BlogHer, and reading pretty much every single post about BlogHer, and then fighting the man and frantically cleaning my apartment for a news crew which never showed up--I entirely forgot to mention Wonderland.

Wonderland is a magical place where I sometimes go to discuss things like celebrity divorce. But with big words. So it's not like you're on some People magazine forum that you'd have to hide from your boss at work. If you have any interest in popping over and joining what's shaping up to be an interesting conversation I'd be ever so obliged.

And now I must pack for a little family trip down South that Nate refers to as the White Trash Family Reunion. It's not, of course. Living with a comedian puts you in a constant state of dodging hyperbole. But just in case, Michelle Lamar gave me a few survival tips.

Also, I think I'll bring my trucker hat.

Oh please don't call us the "Land of Jesse Helms"! Oh how that makes me cringe. At least he lived long enough to see NC go for Obama in the primary which is probably what killed him.

(oops) is the reason I decided to hand out lube to people I DIDN'T KNOW. (oops) indeed.

How do you manage to look exactly the way you did in high school--minus the trucker hat, of course? Blogging must be the fountain of youth!

Do they make those in camo style? Now THAT would be white trash.

You'll fit in just great -- so long as you lose the fancy glass necklace and go for a candy one instead.

By "pack", I assume you mean you'll be throwing your Daisy Duke's and trucker hat in a plastic Walmart shopping bag. Natch.

Yeah, I second stephkat -- Jesse was a walking stereotype. Please don't lump the rest of us in with him. And if you're anywhere near Raleigh, look me up.

Scary but the trucker hat looks so RIGHT on you somehow...hope the tacky tee gets there before you go but if not you have something to wear for the next "whiskey tango" party! Have fun and be sure to write it up!

Jesse is dead and gone now, so you can stay awhile if you like.

I now must go look up Mojo because I thought I was the only freaking blogger in Raleigh. Ever. And yes, if you are near Raleigh, look us both up. I'm a good hostess.

P.S. Don't forget to pack your shotgun!

(P.P.S. I am apparently a little click happy, this could be dangerous!)

Hey, you're a fashionista. Trucker hats are back in again. (After being in last year, then out again.)

I just saw a picture of Nicole Richie wearing one, so it must be true.

Do you have matching hats for the girls?
It was such a treat to meet you last weekend.
You just bring fun and good cheer everywhere you go!

And while you're down there, can you please tell all those you see flying the confederate flag that the war (the 5 year long one that pitted brother against brother over issues of man's right to enslave man, yada yada) is over! You're up for that, aren't you?
