I just spent the past four days at the BlogHer conference hanging out with a bunch of cool women who like to overshare online. Some I met online first, so now I always think of them by their aliases, like Sassafrass, Xiaolin Mama, and bossy, and others I met IRL before reading them like Glennia, Charlene, and Danielle. And of course I was joined at the hip to my BFF Stefania, aka the famous Citymama who had a book signing during the conference! I'm so proud of her!
All wicked smart, and good writers, and everyone is incredibly supportive, even when it's a bad idea, like getting two drinks at once.
My favorite part was that Stefania stayed with me for the whole long weekend. She sums up the conference perfectly, like she always does. Also, that's a picture of her saying "shit," on camera. In a pink Momocrats trucker hat. How fucking cool is she? Love it!
Stefania and I were as junior high and inappropriate as possible, texting mean things to each other when we couldn't say them out loud, and laughing like we were stuck in church.
We went to H&M twice, and we bought matching Wonder Woman bracelets. Sadly, she caught wrist herpes from them, although that probably won't stop me from wearing my set out the next time I need giant gold wrist cuffs. We also went to Sephora, and made several excellent purchases. We both resisted the lure of new lipstick, although we also both went over our self-imposed $5 limit.
I had too much fun, and too little sleep. Today I'm totally sidelined with a cold/nascent sinus infection. I've gone from being hazy from a hangover to being hazy from Benadryl, and I'm about to get the best of both worlds with a Nyquil cocktail. I so could not pass an Olympics drug test right now.
There is a lot more to write about BlogHer, like the Michelin driving event, the panel on childfree bloggers, and the masturbatory in-fighting and soapboxing at the sessions. Content gold! I'll be back once I'm free from this medicinally-induced dementia stupor.
