So! I survived my 7 AM yoga class, although it was dicey there for a minute when the alarmingly sinewy instructor led us all in a group Om (I don’t know why this sort of thing makes me so phenomenally uncomfortable but it sure as hell does, especially when the Om is sort of lilting and songlike and my flat zombie-looking-for-brains “UHHHH” stands out like a turd in a punchbowl). It was actually nice to get up and moving so early, once I peeled myself out of bed and whimpered about it for a while — I’m so FREAKING tired, despite going to bed at a fairly decent hour (I bailed on what sounded like a really great party last night in favor of eating ice cream in my room, mostly because I’d spent an hour or so yelling “WHAT WAS THAT?” and “PARDON?” over the relentless thumpa-thumpa-thumpa house music at some cocktail party reception thing and apparently that sucked all the nightlife right out of me).

It’s probably kind of dreary to read BlogHer posts that include a million links to other people’s websites so I’ll just say that I have really enjoyed meeting so many cool bloggers and not one single person has been an asshole. The sessions I’ve attended have been good, and the community keynote was ridiculously awesome — I laughed myself nearly incontinent at some of them, and others made me cry like a total pussy.

In other news, I’ve been in my hotel room for, what, two days now, and I just realized there’s a little coffee machine hidden in the closet. I guess I can stop ordering the $67 room service half carafe in the mornings now.

Pictures I took yesterday while briefly wandering around near the hotel:





Lastly, here I am rudely forcing Guy Kawasaki to pose for a photo with me (SMOOTH!):

    OMG the jewelry and shoes…..sigh. I’m still happily living in Blogstle in my head. Glad you’re having a great time.

    Those shoes look awesome, please tell me you bought a pair.

  3. Jennifer on July 19th, 2008 10:33 am

    Um, I hate to break it to you, but YOU are alarmingly sinewy, if by “alarmingly” you mean HAWT and fit. Had I been in that yoga class and wound up next to you, I would have rolled up my little mat and waddled the hell out of there!

    Those shoes are amazing. Looks like you’re having a fantastic time – I’m sure you’re the star of the show!

    I’m glad you’re still updating during Blogher, because hardly anybody else is. And when you’re me and all you do is reading for summer courses all day and get bored every 20 minutes and decide to go read blogs- it’s nice to have ONE that’s updated.

    San Francisco looks like so much fun…wish I was there waaaahhh.

  6. workout mommy on July 19th, 2008 12:50 pm

    yes, I have to agree with Jennifer, you are sinewy and fit since I did get the pleasure of having my mat next you in the yoga class.

    i’m dorkishly happy to have met you in person and now wondering if I should have forced YOU to pose for a picture with me? Good thing I don’t carry my camera with me at 7am. :)

    I was reading on the laptop in bed this morning. When I opened the previous post, I think my husband might have drooled a little bit. There may or may not have been some morning wood jokes. Oh sorry, was that gross? It was meant to be a compliment. Which I apparently suck at.

    so give us some dirt….who have you been hanging with, loved the picture of you and kristen(my 2 fav bloggers)….is it weird to meet people you feel like you know, but really dont know?…any surprises?….anyway, it seems like a blast and san fran is an excellent backdrop….enjoy the rest of your time….and go for the ice cream, big breakfast, the whole shebang …you’re on vaca and deserve it skinny minnie!

  9. Emily on July 19th, 2008 3:26 pm

    Guy looks very pleased indeed to be posing with YOU – you do look fabulous. It was however, a bit over-the-top to have him sign your new MacBook Pro.

  10. samantha jo campen on July 19th, 2008 4:51 pm

    Glad you’re enjoying yourself! Have some room service for me :-)

  11. Eric's Mommy on July 19th, 2008 5:20 pm

    Oh I wish I was there!

  12. Naomi in Oz on July 19th, 2008 11:00 pm

    Green with envy here. But not as green as my friend Kelley over at who is desperate to see photos of herself around the conference….and will (and I quote) “totally whore you out on my blog” if you can download her photo off her webpage and then send it back to her with BlogHer stuff….

  13. Jem on July 20th, 2008 4:41 am

    omg. You have the cutest face.

  14. Sheila on July 20th, 2008 4:42 am

    Looks like fun. I found a coffee maker in a hotel closet once, and at first was very excited about not having to have it sent up by room service. Then I realized it didn’t come with any coffee. And I had to have that sent up by room service.

    Wow! Great to find a post knocking my socks off!

    Ha! Our experience exactly. Although it’s not so much Sophie’s illness that keeps her away (sniffles aren’t too bad), but our desire to keep her home (work schedule-permitting) because the daycare concept freaks us out! It’s a nice place; staff are great, but if she cries when I leave her there….Anyway, I like the idea of insurance. But the root of the problem is that decent daycares are in short supply, so we have to pay for that slot. Oh if only the grandmas lived closer…
