This post is for people who definitely are or are not going to Blogher

So the other day Victor was talking about Necromancers except that he was saying something wrong about them and I can’t remember what it was because I didn’t write that part down but I do know that he started yelling at me in the middle of a crowded movie theater that I didn’t know what a necromancer was and I’m all “THE FUCK I DON’T” and he’s all “Fine. What’s a necromanther?” and I’m all “Well I don’t know because that word doesn’t exist” and he’s all “I will walk out of this theater” and I’m all “Why?  Because my ability to identify a necromancer is making you so mad that you’re losing your ability to pronounce shit correctly?” and he’s all “I will stab you right here in front of God and everybody”.  Then I’m all “Just because you know that I know what a necromanther is” and then in my head I’m all “Fuck. I cannot believe that I just said ‘necromanther’ too” and I thought maybe he wouldn’t notice but he crossed his arms and gave me this smug look with one eyebrow raised and he’s all “Fine.  What’s a necromanther?” I’m all “It’s…half dead person, half…panther.”  Then the person in front of us turned around and looked at me like “WTF?” and I’m all “I also know what a necromancer is”.  Then the movie started and Victor just shook his head like he didn’t believe me and the guy in front turned back around and I’m all “I actually have a large vocabulary” and then the guy in front cleared his throat like he wanted me to be quiet and I’m all “Dude.  You are wearing a scarf with a t-shirt. You don’t get to judge me” except I didn’t say it out loud because I’m nonconfrontational.  Also, I just wrote “nonconfrontational” and spellcheck is all “That word doesn’t exist” but was totally cool with the word “necromanther” which I think I just convinced spellcheck is a real thing.

And speaking of panthers, yesterday Victor mentioned how it was good that there weren’t any vampire horses around because they would be super creepy even if they were friendly and were just smiling at you and I’m all “Yeah, but you know who does have vampire fangs and drinks blood?  Fucking panthers, that’s who.”  And he’s all “Panthers don’t drink blood” and I’m all “What do you think they eat?  Cheese pies?” and he’s all “They drink water, dumb-ass” and I’m all “And they drink blood when they eat their prey.  Plus?! They die if you shoot them with a silver bullet so that’s even proofier” and he’s all “What the hell?  Are you talking about werewolves?” and I’m all “I’M TALKING ABOUT VAMPIRE PANTHERS”.  Then the stewardess came by and asked me to keep my voice down and I’m sorry but that’s what’s going to happen when you seat me and my husband in two different rows.

Are you still here?  Because this whole post is kind of giving me a headache and it’s about to get even more convoluted because I’m leaving for the Blogher conference in Chicago day after tomorrow and I usually end up unintentionally causing drama so I just want to take this opportunity to apologize in advance for whatever your problem is, whore.  Also, I’m just kidding about calling you a whore in my apology.  Probably.  I guess it depends on who you are.  Please leave your grievances with me in the comment section so I can be prepared.  Also, remember that Blogher is all about what you bring to it so my advice to you is to bring lots of booze.  And if you forget, just remember that the night before Blogher is The People’s Party (Thursday) and everyone is invited.  This means you.

peoplesparty2009imgoing

Free drinks and swag while it lasts but bring cash because so far we’ve had like 700 people RSVP so we’ll probably run out of booze money the day before while we’re still setting up.  Unless there isn’t going to be an open bar for us during set-up.  Then I’ll be downstairs at the bar while everyone else sets up.  Also, before you go to the People’s Party stop by the Social Luxe pre-party for some pampering.  At 4pm (also on Thursday) Tanis, Michelle and I are presenting the award for “The Funniest Blog” and none of us even got into the finals so Tanis and Michelle are going to set the stage on fire and I’m going to punch whoever wins.  We haven’t really discussed it but I’m pretty sure once I start punching they’ll figure out the game plan.  I am, however, in the finals for “Most Provocative Blog“, which shocked me until I actually looked up the word “provocative”, which apparently also means “to incite anger, to be purposely annoying”.  So basically there is no way I’m not winning that award.

Aren’t you tired of hearing about Blogher?  Me too, but I’m not done yet.  I’m apparently speaking on Saturday at a panel so you should come. I think we’re talking about ninjas.

Also, to combat my anxiety disorder I will be on a lot of xanax so I blame all the dumb stuff I’m going to do on that.  Also, please come talk to me because I spend a shocking amount of time wandering around looking for people I recognize but no one ever recognizes me and then I remember that I’m wearing a disguise because of the anxiety disorder.  So in order to make things easier, here are my three looks for the conference.

Look one: relatively normal me.

real-me

Look 2:  Jenny-Lewis-after-one-beer-bong:

Look 3: I-thought-this-wig-was-all-Pretty-Woman-hookerish-when-I bought-it-but-now-it-looks-all-Sharon-Osborne-as-a-cougar-and-also -why-am-I-wearing-Mrs.-Ropers-house-dress?:

photo-10

Also, just to make this post even longer and more unweildy I’d like to give a shout out to the sponsors of The People’s Party, without whom we would all have to meet each other sober.  There should be pictures of them all here but my computer keeps crashing so instead it’s a kick-ass list of people who want to buy you a drink if you get there before all the drink tickets are gone:  PBS Sprout, Crocs, bTrendie, Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey, Gerber, DisneyWorld Moms, Magic Beans, PNN.com, Disney on Ice, Yummie Tummie, Kirtsy, Mom Central, Smashies, One 2 One Network, 3 smart girlz and more.  Also, the uber-hot Chris Mann will be performing live at the party in spite of the fact that I once drunkenly told him I suspected he was a serial killer.  This would all be more awkward if I wasn’t planning on hiding in the bathroom throughout the entire party.

Comment of the day: I find that adding whore to the end of everything, be it apology or praise, shows people you really mean what you say.

Love the post, whore. ~Just Shireen

  1. “relatively normal” is a beautiful look for you – best hair, best top and neckline (great cleavage! I think that’s a great look anywhere.) I alway say, if you go to the trouble of wearing a wig, it should be blue. Right? Only makes sense.

    Congrats and good luck on guest speaking! Have a great time! Would love to meet you – can’t imagine who would win the award for funniest blogger if it’s not you. Do punch them.

Every time you mention confidence wigs and hiding in bathrooms I want to know more, but then when I try to search your site I have to ask Paul how to do that and then it gives me all this RANDOM ORDER crap so first it’s the post I just read, then a link to a post from 2006, then two more from 2009, then one from 2008, and OMG forget it.

    This time I persevered long enough to find some really good posts on the GAD, but nothing yet about how you hit upon the idea of confidence wigs, and where you buy the wigs, and whether they’re uncomfortably warm to wear, like hats. Because I want to try it and see if it makes me able to sign up for things like BlogHer.

They are uncomfortably hot but totally worth it. I completely recommend one.)

  57. Not gonna be there ’cause I was insecure/procrastinating, then I decided that even though I rarely -to-never update my blog I could use the comraderie (a word) and inspiration of attending, so I got on the waitlist and actually got the opportunity AGAIN and then realized Blogher’s the same weekend at this local arts festival that I’m on the Kid’s Area Committee (yeh, right?) of and I (luckily) couldn’t go anyway unless I’m willing to let a whole lot of people down. So I figured I’d not burn local (possible friend and comiserator) bridges here in my RL community before building new ones in the RL segment of my (someday I’ll) blog community. And now I’m rather glad of the decision because I’ll have time to buy some confidence wigs and reduce my alcohol tolerance before I totally swoop in on a blaze of (wallflower) mediocrity next year. Pretty much the whole reason I want to go is you and my other Jenny and Tanis but that seems stalkery/strange (and pathetic) so I’ll tell you I could really go for some swag in my life right now – I’ll take anything!! So have a great time!! Leave some fun for next year and for gosh sakes – for all us little people hiding home at the arts festival and not updating our blogs because we wouldn’t even have the nerve to punch the winner of funniest (which should be be YOU by far, sweetheart!) let alone be the (blogosphere equivalent) Golden Globe winner – stay out of the bathroom and schmooze your ass off! You only live once and next year I may be the one causing drama (NOT), (notice how you’ve inspired me?)

    So my girlfriend and I have decided that we totally want to come to the People’s Party next year because we both love your blog and think you are hilarious and we are also *not stalkers* – I swear… But we totally want to meet you which I hope doesn’t sound creepy… And we would attempt coming to Blogher but unfortunately I don’t think that myspace or facebook are considered real blogging since there are no deadlines and also there are very young people with hootchie pictures of themselves and it doesn’t really take talent to paste a survey in your ‘blog’ and I’m totally getting off subject but that is ok cause Eddie Izzard does it all the time and if he can so can I. Anyway we were going to road trip it next year because I got married a week ago and can’t take time off but I’d really like to know how to get tickets! Or do we need tickets? Can just fans come?
    Anyway have a blast and we can’t wait to hear about it! (Shay and Leigh)

  68. I just checked out Chris Mann’s MySpace (ptuey, MySpace, ick) and he totally looks like a serial killer. I mean, he is working the serial killer thing, all those intense pics staring out, just waiting to devour one of your vital organs in a bizarre ritual. I’m pretty sure he’s working that as his gimmick. Either that or he thinks he looks smouldering.

    Worse yet, I think Ted Bundy had been a singer he would have sounded just like that, all breathy and urgent and could you help me with my bag I’m on crutches shove you in the van. Whooooa, feelings.

    So you are right to feel anxious and I recommend locking that bathroom door. Just make sure he’s on the other side of it before you do because I saw that little scenario in a horror movie and I’ll never make that mistake. Again.

    Anyway, I would say I think the wigs are a good look for you because of the bangs, you really rock the bangs. But I won’t say it because that’s the kind of the thing the mean girls in school used to say to me: Oh, why don’t you wear bangs, why don’t you wear bright colors, blah blah blah.

    And I’m not mean so I’m keeping my yap shut. But I like the bangs.

  76. Wow, wigs. I never thought of that. Usually I just look at the ground and run into things. Not like people would recognize me at blogher but this could have come in handy when I lived in a small town where everyone knows everyone. It was awful because you pretty much could not leave the house without having to talk to people.

    I think you are all kinds of brilliant. I promise if I ever did recognize you, I will not talk to you or acknowledge you in any way. I will probably be staring at the ground anyway.

    I just wanted to offer one tiny suggestion: Sunglasses. Sunglasses. Also a hat. And one of those weird little miniature dogs? No, the sunglasses will be enough.

  105. I have low expectations for BlogHer. The same people will lead. The same people will follow. The same people get nominated for shit. The same people will win. Everyone will act all surprised and flustered…except for the un-nominated people. The famous will mingle with each other and write about it and all the B-List and C-List bloggers will just be grateful someone else will sit with them. They’ll write about that, too. Maybe…just maybe a Blog Star will bend low to shake a hand or pretend they give a rat’s ass about a blog (yours…or mine) that gets 20 comments per day and isn’t talked about on Oprah or the Today Show. This will cause a lot of excitement until everyone gets home and after the dust settles it will become painfully obvious that Alice or Heather will never EVER be curious about a POS blog that no one reads. Some will cry and others will go out and get drunk over it. The rest will keep going back every year and wondering why they feel like crap afterwards. Someone will sell a kleenex on CraigsList that was used by Pioneer Woman to blow her nose and they’ll make their house payment with it. Business as usual. The End.
