So, this is what it feels like to laugh until I pee my pants.

As I might have mentioned at some point in time (or maybe not, I truly don’t know, and am too lazy to read over what I’ve written (as if there are years and years of posts to re-examine)) I love reading blogs. I’ve linked to a few of them in my blogroll, but really there are hundreds that haven’t been included.

Sometimes I come across a post so hilarious or heart-breaking that I absolutely must pass it on.

Amy who writes at has an absolutely hysterical post up about her encounters with the bugs of suburbia.

Please go read. I laughed out loud. For like 5 minutes. In the middle of class.


Mami, Aunt J, Grandmommy, and Babylicious take Manhattan!!!

I am so unbelievably excited. I just registered for Blogher 2010. I know it’s still like a year away, and I have yet to make any other arraingement other than to register with Blogher, but whatever… I’M TOTALLY GOING TO BLOGHER 2010!!!!

There are quite a few blogs that I stalk on a regular basis, who’s authors I KNOW have gone to the past Blogher conferences, and my dream is to meet them all in person and have little tambourine’s picture taken with all of their children.

No, seriously.

That is my goal. I want a picture of Marlo and Babylicious and Ezra and Babylicious, and perhaps one of the three of them. I’d love Noah and Leta in the pictures to, but I’m not sure if they will show up.

Here is my plan. August 5, 2010 (Thursday) drive up to NYC. The business conference starts on the 5th, but we don’t need to be there for that. Check in, obviously, to the Hilton. Enjoy Friday the 6th at the Conference listening to all the fabulous women speak, and hopefully meeting some of the women I read daily. Saturday, I want to spend as much time at the conference as possible, however, I cannot go to NYC and not see Wicked on Broadway. So that is what I will be doing Saturday afternoon. And then we will be off Sunday back down south.


Keep in mind that this is just a week and a half after I take the Virginia Bar. What a great way to celebrate the completion of my first attempt at the Bar. It will be a time of limbo during which I am grateful to be finished, but scared out of my ever-loving mind that I failed and will have to take it again. Oh, the horrors.


This will be a great way to take my mind off things. Well, at least for a while.
