Hello From Chicago and My Enormous Martini

after about 10 hours of traveling (which is ridiculous, because chicago just isn't THAT far away), and with very little sleep i am essentially coasting on the fumes of adrenaline and um, and odwalla bar i managed to eat despite that i was crammed into a window seat next to two very large men who didn't really seem to care if i could move my arms or not.

which is to say i am tired and depleted, but i am in chicago for the blogher conference, which starts in something like 12 seconds.

but!

room service just delivered me a martini, which is making the 64 (that's a literal number, i sifted through the others) pressing emails that have surfaced in the last few hours seem a lot more approachable.

i think the next few days are going to be amazing and complete and utter insanity (when this is over remember to ask me about the blueberries), and on sunday night -- when everyone else has left and i am again alone in my room, able to bathe and breathe at whatever pace i want without feeling tethered to my inbox -- you'd better believe i have a date with a very hot young man.

well not like "hot" in the inappropriate way.

i just mean that sunday night is all about me, a bath, no email, no bluetooth, a couple glasses of wine, and some very quality alone time with a certain mr. potter.

catch ya' on the flip!

    K-

    Can't wait for updates with news and great stories from Chicago but even moreso...can't wait to see what you think of Mr. Potter's last adenture. I read it in 12 hours cause I actually had a day off.

    Looking forward to updates when you get back!

  7. Kristy,

    I know you are stressed out, but I hope you are pausing to realize that you're living the dream, baby!

    I remember sitting on your bed, in your confusingly numbered hotel room last year at BlogHer, while you detailed the ways in which you would do it better, and now YOU ARE. Way to manifest it, girl.

    I'm so bummed to missing out. I'm there FOR SURE next year. Do you know where it will be yet?

  8. I met you last year at BlogHer, and I'm sure you remember it perfectly. Anyway, it's been a year already and I'm not at Chicago this year, but wanted to say hello.

    Have a good time!
