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.
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.
