I did it!

Well, half of it anyway.

I have a reservation at the San Jose Hyatt for the 2006 BlogHer conference.

Now I just need to register for the actual conference…

I’m thinking of going for just the Saturday session, but I’ll have to go down there on Friday night to make the 7:30 AM start, so I guess I might as well go to the Friday night cocktail party. If my arm is twisted enough.

I would like to bring Cole with me, but I’m not sure how that would fly in sessions. He’s awesome and quiet and I would leave if he started acting up. What do you think? Would that be totally inappropriate?

Sadly, I think I’ll be the least known and most boring blogger there. I’ll also feel left out, I’m sure, because I don’t own a laptop. No live-blogging BlogHer for me! Sometimes I think it’s good that I’m not that nuts. Most of the time I think it puts me at a disadvantage. Whatever. I’m not in this to gain fame and notoriety. A few comments would be cool though.

There are bloggers going whom I would really love to meet. Again, sadly, I am one of the little people and I’m sure they’ll be surrounded by more interesting people and other hangers-on and won’t have time for little ol’ me.

In other news, I’ve been trying to load more recent pictures of Cole but I can’t get it to work for some reason. It’s always worked before. I wonder if it has something to do with the fact that I’m trying to do it from work. Perhaps I’m being blocked. I mean, the reason we’re monitored in the first place is because a former employee was posting pictures of herself having sex to some website from her work computer. (BTW-How stupid can you get?) Maybe my innocent picture posting of my child has been blocked because of porn. Thanks for ruining it for the rest of us! Blame porn for the lack of delicious, adorable baby pictures.

Ok, that last sentence sounded wrong somehow. Anyway, you know what I mean.

    As your ONLY commenter since you came back from your, um, sabbatical, I think you ought to be taking me with you to BlogHer.
    I will be happy to share my laptop.

    John and John can take care of the kids.

    You are TOTALLY welcome to come down! I would LOVE it!!! I thought about asking, but figured it would be too much. Do you really want to?

    Since you asked, and no one answered, I’d suggest not bringing Cole to the session on Saturday.

    You shouldn’t bring him with you because he’d be distracting to everyone, even if he isn’t fussy. This is a generalization, but it seems to be true, when there’s a baby around, baby stuff tends to monopolize the conversation. Without a baby, the conversation is more likely to be about anything else, but the subject of babies/children can still be introduced.

    Does that make any sense?

    First of all, what is all this lack of self esteem? absolutely your blog is worth reading as much if not more than those others attending!!
    and who needs a freaking laptop except for people who have to actually travel with their work. for the rest of us, a pc is way more practical.
    and last, Dont’ Blame Porn!!!
    just because someone was an idiot doesn’t mean the industry has to suffer.
    yes… i know what you mean but so many others don’t/won’t.
    ps playdate soon! yes please!
    and we’ll cook real food this time. and if we really plan ahead,you can stay here instead of driving all the way home.
    also, you still must really meet my sisterinlaw. i’m convinced you’ll like oneanother. but you’ll have to be the judge.
