Blogher-The Social Scene

I need to say right up front: people running at Denise and hugging her and squealing was odd for me. Geez. Next year, I am going to pay some of you to come running at me squealing (seems like I could do otherwise and become an overnight blogging sensation, I know I can. I just need to do it.) Ok, other than Elisa who did run to me about my fabulous comments.

Everyone was super nice and I really can't say who everyone is because even with cards I will be at a loss. Thanks esp to Jory and Elisa and Lisa for chit chatting with me this morning. Thanks to

Time to pack up to move forth through security and maybe out of the ice box the expedia.com cafe is at SJC. (most miserable small airport in America). Ok, well owing to the fact that there is no plane as of yet, more on social scene, I mean networking. Networking it really was, you could easily meet people who share your interests and talk to them. Yes, really talk to them.

Know that I enjoyed chattering with everyone Friday and Saturday nights. I have to say, I wasn't looking forward to the cocktail parties because, well, I am not really the cocktail party sort. But, it really was the best place to meet other folk because almsost no one had their laptop and was clacking away in their own world. Yes, before sessions they would chatter distractedly as they attempted to get a connection. Cocktail parties were better.

Have a safe flight home!

Hey, if it's any comfort, I'd already met Denise, so it was YOU I looked forward to meeting and I wasn't disappointed. :)

If I go next year (and I plan too) I'll run up to you and squeal (actually I just might yell...is that close enough?) but I won't hug without permission. And you don't have to pay me either.

TW said...

ha, I already know you sassymonkey.

sassymonkey said...

Yes but you haven't seen me in a long time. Or in what seems like a long time.

Lee said...

I'm with sassy....I'll join her for a big TW hug and squeal fest...we'll ignore denise completely ;)

Denise said...

ROFL ignore away. I can live with that.

Bethq said...

It's on my list next year, I'll come running up to you and squel!

Donna said...

I'm an awkward hugger and don't think I'm much of a squealer, but next time I see you, I will definitely give it a try. :) I was delighted to meet you both.

Yay! I am looking forward to (with trepidation) squealing. I wonder if you can propel yourself to major celeb status just by getting people to run and squeal when they see you. Hmmm
