Blogher is starting in a little more than a week! I’m not in the least bit nervous. I mean, how can you be nervous when you are going on a mini-vacation with 1200 of your best friends, right??
I’m not frantically running around in search of the perfect clothing or shoes (I always have the perfect shoes!) I may do a little shopping but really, if Blogher wasn’t coming up, I’d still be out shopping. Because a girl can never have too many clothes hanging in her closet.
I have my Moo Cards. Except, I’ve already handed out about 1/2 of the business cards and my mini Moos have gone out to pasture…or somewhere un-charted. So I need to rush order some new ones.
I have my laptop. And my iPhone with about 1/2 dozen Twitter apps.
I have my ride.
I have my roomies.
I have my BBF’s! (Best Blog Friends)
All is great.
Except…I’m freaking about the flipping parties.
Why, you ask?
There are about 6 bagillion on any given night from Thursday through Sunday. I’ve rsvp’d to the Peoples Party, Mom and Pop Spectacular (or whatever it’s called), I’m going to the Nikon party with my friend and it turns out…a bunch more of my friends will be there! CheeseburgHer.
After that…I have noClueHer. I’m going to let my 1200 friends decide. Because while I very much have a mind of my own, it’s shut down when it saw the list of parties. My poor little mind, which was starting to get feeble to begin with, went into information overload…and imploded.
The only thing I started thinking of, when I was staring at that list, rocking and drooling…
was that next year, I’m having my own party. It’s going to be laid back. Relaxed. You don’t have to RSVP. You can just show up. I’m going to see if I can get it sponsored by all the pharmaceutical and liquor companies. It will be going on every night. For those of you who are like me and have NO IDEA what to do.
Ladies, next year the big party of Blogher is going to be *half assed attempt at a drum roll*
OverWhelmHER. The party that ends all parties.
And don’t even get me started on the sessions.
Well, I hope my bed is comfortable.
Help me with a list…
Right here on my blog. Boss me around and tell me what I’m doing.
Because I can’t handle this on my own.
Now if you’ll excuse me…
I have to go throw up.
I was just thinking about how ridiculous it is, these invite only parties. So next year, for real, I’m doing the OverWhelmHER party.

Can’t help ya with sessions, but you’re welcome to hold on to my elbow through the parties Stevie Wonder style, if ya like. LOL (was that offensive?) Anyway… I totally volunteer to guide ya around. LOL
Oh. and the party for next year. In the words of Juno, Hells Yeah! LOVE the name! You could totally rock it. Lemme know if you need some party planning expertise.

I’ve been hiding my head in the sand, I have to print the stuff out and figure out what the hell I’ll doing too..good thing is it will involve you, thank GAWD!!!!
I’m just going to go with the flow and follow the crowds. I do plan on going to a lot of the sessions, which I hear is wildly unpopular, but I’m a nerd.
haha … I haven’t really thought much about it but I’ll just follow you around. See? Problem solved, for me!

Ugh, I know what you mean! Between parties and session (which I will be going to!), I have no clue. I think it’s going to be information and people overload, but hopefully I’ll still enjoy every second of it.
OverWhelmHer – I LOVE IT!
ha, you have fun and let me know for NEXT year….so I won’t be clueless. 😉
I can’t even think about it right now. All I know is, I’ll be at the People’s Party (and dinner with you and Tah-ra before!). That is all.
Count me in for OverWhelmHER’10!
Well, since you are bringing “me” I’ll be wherever you are. Unless you lose me or pawn me off onto an unsuspecting blogger in an attempt to make me new friends.
Either way, next year, I will find a way to be there. Oh yes. I will.
As organized as I’m trying to be, I imagine I’ll chuck it all once I get there. As long as we get to knock back a couple, I’m good!
I’m overwhelmed just reading about all this.
Nap Warden says
I rsvp’d to all of them except the Mom and Pop. I couldn’t get in…it was full. I have no idea which ones I’m going to…how are they going to police them?
Tara R. says
OverWhelmHer pretty much sums it up. I’m tagging along with you.
Well, maybe I will be able to go next year so I can go to the OverWhelmHer Super Soiree! But since I’m new, I’ll just hang out here at my Hamtramck Homestead & live viacariously through all of you! I know you will have a blast!
You guys have a big time. Surely there will be some other folks willing to party with you. I don’t like the invite only idea. Then again, I’m just jealous I’m-not-going-at-allHer. 🙂
Um…you need to think about the fact that you are going to have a 5 foot 9 chick hanging on you like a Kola. Yup. That would be me, planning to hide behind you for most of the time at blogher!
Yep, I’d be up for an overwhelmHER party next year. That’s pretty much my daily existence anyhow.
Um, the overwhelmed part, not the party part. I so wish.
