I’m really tired. I drank more than I should have. I stayed up later than I should have. But it’s been freaking amazing that I’ve gotten to meet my friends that I’ve been blogging with for a couple of years. And to make matters even better…I’ve made new friends. I can say now say that you are my real life friends because, well…you are. I’ve met you in the flesh. I’ve hugged you. I’ve giggled at your midnight farts…and I’m not just talking about my own! I’ve sweat at Navy Pier with you. I’ve chatted, bitched, gossiped and BONDED with you. And we’ve partied…
Oh man…have we partied!!
Bloggers know how to party and trash hotels like fucking rock stars.
We are NOT rock stars. We are bloggers. So some of us should get over ourselves. Because we may be all that in the minds of our blog followers AND ourselves but, seriously…we aren’t all that. We are moms. Who have a voice. Who write blogs for a myriad of reasons. But really, in real life, we aren’t a household name. Except perhaps, in our own household.
I’m not going to even go there with the Nikon baby banning thing and the swag thing. Not really worth it. But seriously people…what’s up with that?????
I’ve realized that what people tweet themselves to be and they are in real life are two TOTALLY different things. That’s ok. It is what it is. We can hit the old unfollow button.
I’ve learned that…
some bloggers are shit disturbers. They thrive on the drama. It’s kind of immature and narcissistic. I suppose that some of us like the drama. That’s why soap operas do so well. Personally, I stopped watching the soaps back in high school.
I’ve learned that…
I really need to start another blog. One where I’m not so…measured and calibrated. One where I can talk about stuff without stress my mom is going to have a breakdown because her friends are reading what I write. So I’m considering it. But Rock and Drool is NOT going anywhere. If I do decide to start another blog, it’ll just be another blog. Because I’m crazy like that. And I have just the place. Those of you who care, I’ll tweet it at another time!
Such Simple Pleasures is making a comeback. Alongside Rock and Drool. They will be merging and meshing. Because I realized just how badly. With all my heart. I miss that place. I’m going to be chatting up Nap Warden. She’s a fucking genius, by the way!
I’ve learned that I don’t like soft beds.
I’ve come to realize that I’m not shy. Really, not at all.
I can’t hold my alcohol the way I used to.
I think it’s so funny that I wasn’t what people expected! I’m shorter and younger. You guys crack me up!!
But this was an incredible experience that I’m so thankful to have been able to participate in.
My friends, new and old. You made this experience real and perfect. You were wonderful, beautiful, brilliant, fun, amazing, silly. I love you. Thank you. So much.
