JB read my post yesterday and was like, hey, I didn’t know it meant that much to you to go to BlogHer, let me work some mysterious mojo with my airline miles oh here is a free flight to NYC. And I was like, um, now I am really super embarrassed about publicly whimpering and boy I wish we could have discussed that whole secret mileage rabbit-in-the-hat action a while ago instead of me feeling bummed and coming thisclose to selling my conference pass and not to look a gift horse in the mouth or anything but is it really only obvious what is meaningful to me when it makes it to my website? But nevermind, who cares, because THANK YOU, MIRACLE ACHIEVED. BlogHer is a go, and I am beyond thrilled about this.

Also, I checked the school website this morning and grades are posted and can I get a WHUT WHUT, I aced my goddamn nutrition class.

AAAAAAAA

This class was teeming with biochemistry, he slammed us with a weekly quiz, I had to give a presentation in front of the class using a slide deck and everything, and you guys, it was not easy. Seeing that A makes me feel . . . I don’t even know. It makes me feel happy and proud and like I can do this school thing even if it takes fifty more years.

MAN. Is this Hump Day? Because I feel like I am getting DRILLED with GOOD NEWS.

Congrats on your A! I am just reading this post and yesterday’s now. I am thankful that I was behind so that I did not need to be all bummed for a day. I am going to BlogHer this year and even though I will probably be more awkward than you profess to be, you are one of the people who I am hoping to see, shake hands, and say hello.

So glad you are finally getting your HAPPY on out there! Is this the end of S.A.D.? Is it also sunny in Seattle today?

Also – if I lived in your town, we would SO BE FRIENDS. Sorry, hope that’s not creepy! (I’m really not creepy, just enthusiastic.)

Anyway, hooray!

That’s the way it is sometimes with introverts–you find out what’s happening with them in roundabout ways. My BFF keeps some things pretty close to the vest. Even though we talk and see each other all the time, I regularly find out her true feelings about something by reading her blog.

Glad you get to go to BlogHer!

I’m so glad you found a good solution for BlogHer!

I’ve seen people post on Twitter asking for donations – not sponsorships but DONATIONS – to go to the conference. And….well, that just feels wrong to me. I’d like a free trip to Disney World but I’m not about to ask the Internet to send me.

kate

Okay, now that you are actually going, I have to state that I was totally kidding about stalking you while you are there :-) I’d still love to meet you of course, but in a reasonable, socially acceptable manner

also, not to be the bitch that points out typos or anything, but is that thought bubble on your grade supposed to saw Owned? because I’m worried that PWNED is some snazzy new internet acronym that I don’t know.

Yay for miracles and getting drilled with good news!!

ACE! Awesome job Linda. Savour the high.

@ Kate, I had to google it the first time I saw it too. Lots of computer-nerd debate on the topic, but here is the basic definition of “pwned” from Urban Dictionary:
A corruption of the word “Owned.” This originated in an online game called Warcraft, where a map designer misspelled “owned.” When the computer beat a player, it was supposed to say, so-and-so “has been owned.” Instead, it said, so-and-so “has been pwned.” It basically means “to own” or to be dominated by an opponent or situation, especially by some god-like or computer-like force.
