I’m an ass, a very forgetful ass. Even though I printed, packed, and flew across the country with Kelley‘s picture, I somehow kept forgetting to take her out of my bag. In an attempt to make up for not taking even ONE picture of me or anyone with Kelley, I’m going to highlight her as my Site o’ the week! Please go visit her blog, Magneto Bold Too! Help me be less of an ass.
The most touching part of BlogHer was the community keynote where several courageous bloggers got on stage in front of hundreds of people and read a post from their blog.
Every post was fantastic, but two posts that I had not read before, stood out in my mind.
If you’re not reading Mr. Lady, you a damn fool. She read THIS POST, (OH MY GOD, THAT POST!) from her blog Whiskey in my Sippy Cup. It’s a must read. Imagine reading THAT in front of hundreds of people. No doubt she got a standing ovation.
Somehow I’ve lived under a rock and hadn’t even heard of Lesbian Dad before. Where the hell have I been?? Why didn’t any of you tell me about her?? Anyway, please go read her post that she read. Unbelievably beautiful from an unbelievably beautiful person. Wish I’d have had the chance to meet her.

There were SO MANY people that I met, that I’d love to introduce you, too…in case you don’t already know them. This is in NO WAY a complete list, because I do believe in brevity.
Amy In Ohio spent the majority of the weekend on “make Jennifer laugh” duty. She was unaware she was even ON duty, but she did a fine job of keeping me in giggles.
In the category of Best Headless Barbie Swag, please say hello to Headless Mom. We went to dinner one night where she ate two baby slices of pizza while I did my best impression of a ravenous vacuum cleaner and ate my entire pizza.
I really enjoyed meeting Andrea (it’s pronounced On-dray-uh) from Sweet Life, she had such cute hair and clothes. Sigh.
Okay, ONE more. This is seriously getting out of control…I loved Shannan from Mommy Bits. She went to dinner with some us and disappeared. Luckily she was just a party pooper tired and went back to her room. (I was a party pooper tired on Saturday night and didn’t even go to one party, so I have no room to poke fun.)
