what happened to my head?

I think it fell off.  I’m pretty sure my eyeballs rolled across the room – and were promptly stepped on.  That’s what it feels like, anyway.

Between the headache, the craziness of work (I’m lookin’ at you, Raiser’s Edge!  What did I do to make you hate me this way?  I’ve never said anything bad about you.  In fact, once, I tried to get a job teaching other people to love you as much as I love you.  Is that how you repay such loyalty?)   Ahem.  Moving on.  Also – just plain old business, and the strain of trying to cram new things in my brain with the larnin’ – I think my brain just gave up and flung itself away from me.

So – forgive me for being even more incoherant than usual.

Big-ish weekend planned.  Back to the househunting tomorrow.  Also, I have to be at work tomorrow morning from 7:15 -9:30, due to a special event thingie.

I just feel like I need a break.  I’ve been pushing for a trip to Seattle, because I’ve never been there, and it looks like I’ll get my wish – as a good friend of the architect’s is getting married in April.

Then, I tried to convince him to take me to Vegas, for I love that city more than almost any city in the country.

And then, since I was all over the imaginary travel plans, and I read about BlogHer on Kris’s blog, I thought I’d check out the dates/location for that.  I’d really wanted to go last year, and my excuse for not going was because it fell too close to my move.  I wouldn’t have gone anyway, because I might have actually had to talk to people in real life and it’s harder to be witty when people can actually see me.

However, this year, BlogHer is July 27 & 28.  In Chicago. At Navy Pier.  Which may mean nothing to you.  However, I’m going to be in Chicago.  July 26-28.  For the APRA conference.  Three blocks away from BlogHer.  And cool people will be at BlogHer.  So, maybe I will get really brave and try to do a little of both – I’m actually free most of the 28th.  Because if I’m going to be forced to meet and talk to people anyway, why not just do a couple years worth of stuff all in two days?  That way, I may not have to talk to anyone for at least five years – and that would be good.

Or, I may just stay in my hotel room and hide under the bed, just on the off chance that someone comes looking for me.

I’ll let you know what I decide.  Are any of you planning on attending BlogHer?

PS – did you see what book I’m reading?  Isn’t it cool?  Thanks so much E – you’re the awesomest.

  1. I think you should go. Because how cool would that be? Although very intimidating as well. All that coolness in one place.

    Silly

  2. That is awesome! I didn’t know Blogher was in Chicago this summer! We should totally go together. Surely you can skip out on a couple of sessions, right?
