(Edited because I couldn’t upload pictures from the conference and without them, the title of this post makes even less sense.)
So I’m here in Chicago. It’s exhaustingly fun. So far, I’ve met Mr. Lady, Suebob, Rachel, ChickyChickyBaby, Fairly Odd Mother, Suzanne from CUSS and Kerri. Well, I’ve met Kerri several times before, so I don’t know if she counts, but whatever. We’ve hung out.
Big Giant Bean
We went to see the big chrome bean in the park, which was super shiny and very cool and very shiny and slightly nausea-inducing to look at. Also? Shiny. Did I mention shiny? Did I mention I forgot my sunglasses? Yeah. Shiny. Ouch.
Big, giant people.
I’ve spied, from a distance, Bossy and Sweetney and Her Bad Mother but I was too chicken to go up to them and say hello. I’m lame like that. And I fear rejection. (And those would be the Big Giant Bloggers….)
I can’t seem to get pictures to upload. A zillion women accessing twitter and blogs and facebook makes for a mightly slow connection, but I will try to do it when I get home. Or maybe on my layover in MPLS. Mission accomplished.
I’m having a great time. I’m also so hungry I could eat my left foot. One cannot exist on appetizers for three days, no matter how tasty they are. I believe Rachel and I are going to hunt down some real food tonight before the CheeseburgHer party. Poor Rachel kept waking up all night because she was so hungry.
Now I’m off to meet The Hotfessional (squeee!!)….
It’s been inspiring, this conference. I have a slew of cards from women whose blogs I’ve never heard of and I’m looking forward to checking them out. It is just so cool to meet all these great women I’ve been reading for years and finding new people to connect with. So fucking cool.
