Well BlogMe Senseless...

This was me a year ago:

Anyone want to interview me for BlogHer? Oh, hang on. I'm not going. Is it me, or is this a weird week in the lady-blogosphere for anyone not going? Is this what being Jewish at Christmas is like? Interesting...


I felt like a right knobby-no-mates, with all my online BFFs(!) abandoning me for real life physical contact, and not blogging every detail as I had wished! This was why I determined that this year I would do without the obligatory "OMG! I am so totally going to BlogHer! OMG OMG OMG! I'm, like, so shy! OMG Will you please speak to me?" (if you are shy, then it's ok to write posts like this. Wise, in fact. But I am not really shy, see) (You are really beginning to hate me now, aren't you?)

Yep. I am going. And I anticipate you will feel my absence so very very acutely, and for that I apologize. I have tried to keep the "I am SO SO going to BlogHer" posts to a minimum, because if you are not it can be dead annoying. Well, it annoyed me anyway. Mainly because I was steaming with jealousy.

You are, however, spared from having to read some long-ass interview where someone who is also going to BlogHer interviews me (Also going to Blogher. In case you missed it before.) But I do feel obliged to do the "BlogMe 2007" challenge, triggered by the inimitable and deeply gorgeous Mocha.


ME. IN TEN SECONDS.
I like pina colada. And getting caught in the rain. I am 36 years old, and have two sons, 4yrs old and 8 months old., and they are divine. There's a husband too. He's not bad, either. I am a lefty liberal feminist with a deeply crass sense of humor. I am a teacher, researcher, and "digital media expert." I loves me some telly. Am big fan of twizzlers. Right now I live in Michigan, and in less than two months, I will be back in England, from whence I came... I talk a lot, interrupt a lot, swear like a sailor, and cannot possibly distill anything into ten seconds.

Just promise you'll find me at the cocktail party on Friday. Or sooner. Because I like pina coladas too.

I feel like the Jewish girl at Christmas this year *lip quiver*

kgirl said...

Jewish girl at Christmas? Oh yeah.

But have fun anyway, and blog every detail, like you wish someone had :)

"I'm just a Jew, a lonely Jew, at Christmas..."

Not this year! Come over and open some presents with the rest of us!

Mamma said...

I'm not into health food. I am into champagne.

You're my kind of gal. Hope we get to hook up. I'll be the other lefty feminist big mouth at the bar on Thursday night.

Lawyer Mama said...

I'm hoping that your ban on the kiddos' pictures doesn't mean you can't bring any to BlogHer!

"digital media expert." I loves me some telly.

Dude, you're repeating yourself. But don't worry, I hear that happens when you're old.

slouching mom said...

Twizzlers? Pina coladas?

You're my kind of woman!

metro mama said...

Can't wait to meet you!

Oh, The Joys said...

I remember last year. I was grateful to be on vacation the week of the conference so I didn't even have to look. I felt like such an outsider.

Mocha said...

You were definitely OBLIGATED because this year we will meet and the heavens will open and pour down rain in the form of pina coladas so let's bring cups, shall we?

Lefty liberal twizzler lover? Oh, I've found my match, sweetie. BFFs by week's end.

Last year I was surfing for every update and hanging off every word. I can't wait to meet you!

I'm not going to BlogHer and don't really have any desire to go. Does that make me strange? Of course as soon as all these cool posts start popping up I'll turn pea green!

I too, talk a lot, interrupt a lot, swear like a sailor. You'll be a welcome addition to LFoMC!!

Miscellaneous-Mum said...

Well, on the one hand it would be nice to go. On the other, I'm relieved to be all the way over here too....wallflower by circumstance and geography!

Eleanor said...

well, I for one can't wait to hear about Blogher, because, well to be honest I don't know anything about it and would love to know more.

But perhaps you can save that for autumn and you can tell me more about it over a coupla pina coladas and bottles of bino blanco in some mancunian alcohol-providing destination of choice.

Mary G said...

Joy, if you don't reveal every delicious detail about the party (oh, and the conference) I'll make a wax doll and stick transatlantic pins in it.
Sigh.

Julie Pippert said...

Have a grand time!

And never mind feeling sorry for me...nope, I won't have that, not a bit of it. ;)

LOL

Enjoy!

Gunfighter said...

I was going to say something pithy about meeting you by tomorrow, noon, in the dunes on the cape... but that would have been silly

I'll simply say: Brava!

Have a good time!

Really enjoyed reading this blog - I can't wait to find out what you make of returning to the UK - I will be living vicariously through you - don't fuck up!
