Ah, Sarah, Ah, smart.

Now here is a secret....I am not nervous about BlogHer this year. Last year? Oh hell yes. This year? Meh, not so much.

Not because I am all THAT, but shit people. I had a major freaking meltdown over the past year. I lost my fucking mind. Literally. And I told you all about it!

(I think we can all sleep better knowing that I too did not sign the "no swearing" clause. I don't even have a "no swearing" clause in front of my child so why the fuck would I do it for anyone else?)

It isn't as if I am not awed by my bloggy crushes either. I still would love to just give Heather a big hug and tell her that she will get through all of it instead of simply staring at her from across the room...and I practically tripped over myself trying to get Eden to laugh at something I said last year while buying her t-shirts ....

But as I said to Nancy in an email recently.... I got nothing to prove. Zippo. Nada. Nothing. You all know I am weird and quirky and prone to disappearing at odd times. I may drink too much and tell off color stories ( Hey Izzy, You laughed so hard at my "You are 40 years old, Don't tell me you don't know the difference between my ass and my cooch! last year - How brave of you to be my room mate this year!)

I may stay up until the sun rises and see Sasquatch with you.

Sue has a great post about the nervousness around BlogHer and how unfounded it is. Honestly. I will be so glad to see friends from last year, and friends I have yet to meet.

Everything will be just fine.

So without further ado, here is my 10 second intro....

* I am the person you want on your team for trivial pursuit type games. I store VAST amounts of obscure, useless information in my brain.

* I am actually licensed to teach K-6

* I own more pajama sets than one person really should...Both winter sets and summers sets. I love quirky pajamas, as they are my main clothing at home. I would walk around in my pajamas all the time if I could.

* The whole "grunge rock" thing missed me entirely. Although I was in my third year of college, I just didn't get it - at all.

* I go fucking bugshit over good coconut cake.

* I own most of the Harry Potter books ( hardcover) in both their American and British release versions. Which are in fact slightly different.

Oh, if we had more time I would challenge you to Trivial Pursuit.

I rock the useless knowledge.

I'm so happy you're going to BlogHer. I'm really looking forward to seeing you again.

Fuck. That was me. Who also did not agree to censor herself.

Okay- where do you get the British versions of Harry Potter? Now that I know they are different, I feel I must have both versions.

I am a little bit nervous about Blogher, but mostly excited. I can't wait to put faces with names/blogs. I can't wait to make a fool of myself and fawn all over my bloggy crushes.

See ya soon!

Thanks for the linky love.

I fucking rock at Trivial Pursuit, too, except for the sports.

Shoot. I wish I'd made the effort to go, because now that I don't give a shit about my neglected blog, I realize that I would really just rather talk to you all in person. It's like the excitement and intoxication of a long-distance relationship has finally become plain-ole frustrating and unfulfilling.

I am going to BH too but I am staying at my Dad's place (in downtown Chicago) cuz I am poor (read: buying a house) this year.

See you there, cooch.

Oooh, what is the difference between the Harry Potter versions? I wonder if I got the UK or US release - in Australia. I bet the UK release.

Waaaaaah, my blog is a non-entity and no one cares if I go to BlogHer or not, even though I too rock the house at Trivial Pursuit and drive into inanimate objects and I once sang back-up for Barry Manilow. Oh well. Once again in my life I realize that being interesting is no substitute for actual effort. Curse my slacker ways! Have a great time.

You are one of the only reasons I would even consider going to BlogHer.
