Panicville

Sometimes bad stuff happens to good people. That's why you should go over to A Mommy Story and give Christina a virtual hug. She and her dear husband had someone break into their house and they got robbed of some of their prized possessions, including a brand-new laptop...ouch.

Status update:
My house: filthy, including ants marching through the laundry room. Also a spilled gin and tonic that has gotten into far too many crevices to be cleaned up any time in the next century. Bring on more ants!!
My luggage: packed, including a bunch of stuff I am sure I will never need/wear for BlogHer. But I will look fabulous not wearing it. I also have a bottle of Tanqueray in there and about 8 limes. It pays to be prepared.
My emotional state: I am so excited that I feel like I have Pop-Rocks in my brain. I have started picking like mad again. I have a bit of skin on my lip that must simply be torn off or I will go crazy...I may not have lips left by the time I get to San Jose. Will the other BlogHers still love me lipless? Or will they say "Yep, there's that weirdo Suebob? We KNEW she would do something stupid like picking her lips off!"
Am I going to bring the laptop? This laptop? My little glowing white friend? With the utterly cool Red Stapler sticker on the front? Will it be 4 pounds of misery or 4 pounds of fun? I will decide on the way out the door. See you there. Or if I am not going to see you there, I most certainly (Robin, Des, WordGirl) wish I was.

Oh, take it. Just knowing you'll have it calms the panic I feel being out of touch with you.

have a blast. wish i was going so i could meet you. pictures. lots of pictures, please.

wordgirl said...

Yes...DO go and have some fun for us. I said before that I snarked about BlogHer in the past and now would probably go if time/the situation presented itself. Still...I would dread slapping on a nametag with a moniker that only 1% of those present would recognize. I'd get tired of the ???? looks after the first day. But gin? Lovely. TAKE PICTURES!!!

Step away from yer lips. You need those little rubber finger condoms. Yes please have fun for us....feeling a bit jealous..have you noticed how I've not commented about your BlogHer trip?

super des said...

come on GR, let's go have fun without her. It's probably ten-hundred degrees there anyway. But we don't have Great America.

Des-suits me fine. Come over to the westside tonight. My friend is having a get together for his b-day at a dive bar called Ding Dong. All are invited. It'll be fun. Around nine. Call me....and we won't even think about the BlogHer chicks...well maybe a little.

I have touched the Red Stapler, Thursday by the pool. And it was good.

SueBob I think I need another turn.

gandhi rules said...

Lisa! That sounds really sexy...I've got to know what you mean...Bob, what does she mean?!

gandhi rules said...

was gin involved?

Suzanne said...

I am sitting next to Suebob now, and it is the best.

"Yep, there's that weirdo Suebob? We KNEW she would do something stupid like picking her lips off!"

spat beer at the screen, thanks to that line.

wish I could go, so I could see, among others, lipless Suebob. :p

hope you have a super-fun time, lady. xoxo

I balanced the red stapler on my head. And it was good.

; )

Am still jealous of your propage. Well done.

(Nice to meet you!)

Nut's mom said...

Hahaha.... Iread that as I have a bottle of booze and 8 LINES. hahaha... I'm an idiot. It was fun hanging out last night!

Christina said...

I watched Mocha Momma lick the Red Stapler. It was hot.

And I got drunk while hanging out with Suebob, and never had a better time.

SUEB0B said...

Thanks, everyone. I had the best time ever. I am going to sleep now.
