BlogHer 2013 & She Who Must Not be Named

It suddenly occurred to me that a girl such as myself with extreme social anxiety and a dependency on rum in order to meet new friends probably should not have registered for BlogHer's big conference in Chicago, starting tomorrow.

I'm packing now:

Enough?
Thankfully, I have secured a great "tribe" of women who will have my back throughout the duration of the conference. Actually, they have each been assigned a day to "watch" me:

I'm totally stealing one of my tribemate's pictures.  I hope she doesn't sue me. 

The gals created a Twitter hashtag option if anyone wants to know what I'm doing at BlogHer:

#marianneantics

If you are a twitterer/tweeter/tooter, feel free to follow along.

Wish me luck (along with the ability to find my way home eventually).

  2. Yay! What fun, and is that one days worth of booze? Though they might be big bottles - you don't have a matchbox there to give away the size.

  3. Have a wonderful time!

    Twitter. Hmm. Might tweet to get your hilarity, but so far I am not on Twitter. I think I might sin a lot publicly if I were to go on Twitter. But it sure beats waiting for People Magazine to come out!

  4. You will be fine.
    We have our get along shirt and I am sure Jen has got a leash for us in her "big bag".
    That is not code for something else, by the way.

  8. You did fabulous and your antics were kept to a minimum. By the way, you owe me royalties for every hit you've had to this post for using my picture. lol
