Who is in, my bitches? Who wants to come to Chicago, home of our famous deep dish pizza, the best hot dogs on the planet, AND everybody’s favorite Aunt Becky?

Because I cannot fucking wait. To all of you previous attendees, is it worth it?

  1. We’ll see, it sounds awesome but I’m going to be very, very broke with a nursing eight-month-old. And I’m in Florida. 🙁

    I want to go so bad though. Wargh.

  2. Me? Crowds of strangers? Mmm…not so much. Maybe one day…

    Of course, that’s a fair distance off, and maybe I can suck it up, get off my arse, and show up.

    But probably not. Lazy cuss, me.

    Shade and Sweetwater,

  3. I am seriously thinking about it…but I’d be afraid that I would be like the bloggy wallflower….standing there, waiting for someone to ask me to dance –

  4. I would love a trip to Chicago, but Mr. Farty does not agree…and neither does my check book….Sorry. Have a few shots of vodka for me.

  5. OF COURSE!!! Now I require a few essentials to be purchased and provided by my hostess (I’m a diva like that). I would like a mint on my pillow every evening after turn down. Also my meals need to be perpared according to what I am craving at the moment. Um what else…..OH WAIT!

    I thought it was a request to come visit you. Well I can’t make Blogher but the next time we drive through on the way to WI I’ll let you know (and NO I am not really a Diva like that – just play one on tv (in my head)).

  6. July 2009? I don’t even know what I’m doing next week, yet 🙂

    But Chicago is so far away….um….ok, maybe not…..but, then I’d have to actually step out from behind my blog and actually meet people! That’s scarier than your header!

  7. I don’t know. It’s only like a 5 hour drive for me, but money is always the issue. I’m about to blow my load on Disneyworld, and my husband put the kibosh on vakays for like 2 years. I have always wanted to go there though and take my daughter back to the American Girl Place, and Rainforest Cafe, and what not. (She’s actually been there twice without me.) If I did go, it would be more for the other stuff than the Blogher thing. I don’t really consider myself good enough to hang out with the “big blogs”. lol

  8. I’d come just to see you, but alas, I’m as broke as broke can be, babe.

    Anyway, I’m so not a group girl. I get all red-faced and hide in corners.

  9. I do love Chi-town, but I don’t do well with crowds. Or spending money I don’t have. Or dealing with my son’s grandparents, although we would have a free place to stay in a 14 room penthouse on South Shore Drive… Yeah, still not worth the price of my sanity. Sorry sweets, I’d love to meet you. Wait, what’s that, I’m not even a member of Blogher? Darn-it!

  10. i wanna come to chi town just because… i’m convinced it would be awesome to come in the dead of windy winter, you know, just to experience it, but the wife is against it. eh.

    besides, i wouldn’t fit in at the ranks of bloghers. my blog pretty much sucks.

  11. I want to go so very badly but my insecurities rise up and start to choke me when I eventhink about it. Do smaller, less successful, newbie bloggers who barely know how to turn on a computer ever attend or is it pretty much the heavy hitters?

  12. How tempted am I??? VERY! GingerMagnolia lives only a 2 hr train ride from Chi-town, and she’s been begging me to come up there for so long. But, I’m also supposed to start school that June. I’m going to say that I’m probably screwed, but I would so love to. Though…I’m not even in the BlogHer network, and I’m guessing that’s a first step, right? lol

  13. As long as you promise I won’t have to babysit any of your 6,927 kids, I’ll try to make it. Will there be vodka? If so, I’ll need a designated driver.

  14. Oh, that would just really freak me out!! There’s a reason I live my life online! But if another wave of mania hits.. then it could be fun. 🙂

  15. Dude. It won’t be done. (Sorry) I’m on the west coast and the flight alone is ridiculous. I went last year (missed you!) but this year feel like I should go somewhere with the husband. Boo! The sacrifices I make to maintain marital harmony.

  16. *phone ringing*

    Hi, yes, is this Hotel Becky? … I would like to make a reservation … Oh, a single couch would be fine, for July 23rd and 24th … mm hmm, for two days, yes … How would I like to pay? Oh, well, I’ve got a coupon here for free use of the couch for being a loyal reader. … No, it’s doesn’t have an expiration date. … Mm hmm, okay, great! … No, I don’t need the confirmation number. Thanks!
