I guess I'll start up that orphanage some other week.

Alive? Check.

Exhausted? Check.

Excited about spending two full days with hundreds of women in downtown Chicago for the BlogHer Conference 2007? Check.

Ready for the aforementioned conference in any way shape or form? NEGATIVE.

It's almost midnight, and I still have to unpack from my family reunion trip, upload all the pictures from my camera, wash some clothes to wear for tomorrow, and print out business cards with my name and URL. Oh right, and I get to wake up at 5:30am because taking a train and a bus to Navy Pier from my house is going to take forever and a day.

Stressed and a wee bit panicky? Hell yes, check.

Hey! You should get me the blog address of the women you meet. Ummm....they should be between 19 and 22 and cute....Can't wait to read about your trip.

Yeah, Sexy Beast (Haynes) already wants me to jot down some URLs for him... I'm hoping that everyone else at the conference brings stickers or business cards to make my life easier in that regard. I can just write "yes!" on the back of the cards of the cute, young, single bloggers and "no!" on the back of the cards of the gorgeous-but-taken bloggers. I'm fairly certain that all the women who attend this thing are going to be smashingly beautiful.

I'm also fairly certain that I should've been in bed hours ago. :\

Sweet! I should have been in bed awhile ago too. Have I ever mentioned how much you remind me of Lorelai Gilmore?

Aww... I miss Gilmore Girls!!! Such a great show. (And thank you. It's a HUGE compliment to be compared to Lorelai!)

Part of me wishes I was going, but most of me realizes that no one would pay attention to me if I were there anyway.

You're the single most organized person I know. If anyone could pull off this mad dash, I'm pretty sure it'd be you.

Good luck, and I hope you meet all sorts of wonderful people!

Golfwidow: You totally should've come!! You and the other goddesses of the internet could've laughed in a little circle while the rest of us tried to gather the courage to ask for a picture with you (and maybe an autograph). Seriously, I beg of you to go next year. I personally promise that you'll have a blast.

Tyler: I'm fairly certain that you're just flattering me on the "most organized" thing. However, I did manage to pull off the "mad dash" part almost flawlessly — I had to floss in the car and cut my business cards out during the first session — which I owe entirely to my obsessive compulsive need to make checklists at two o'clock in the morning.
