I will be winging to Nashville! Tennessee!! For this:
What's this you ask?
It's a bloggers conference. Now I'm a little mad they stole my "bliss" idea .......
How long have I been blogging you ask?
They had Blissdom '09 last year you say? And Blissdom '08 the year before?
Oh. Well then they should consider giving me a discount since they & I are obviously of like mind!
Ok, so I totally can't wait! But I'm also somewhat intimidated. I'm going by myself! And I've only been doing this for a few months!! OMG what was I thinking!!!
Oh and btw I don't have a laptop *bombshell* I know. I told everyone at work yesterday ...
...so yesterday I told everyone at work about the Blissdom conference. They all looked at me rather mystified as I prattled on about the accommodations and the fact that Harry Connick, Jr. will be singing for us Saturday night and that I'm determined not to buy one single article of new clothing for this grand adventure (my M.O. is to run out and buy expensive things right before an exciting trip) and that I don't have a laptop which is a bit like arriving at a polo tournament without your horse! As I said--mystified.(I have never once brought up my part-time job at a small accounting firm in Virginia Beach .....I've been saving it for a future post(s) ......I love it and work with some v-e-r-y fascinating people (hi y'all!) ......and wrapping up--get your tax stuff to your accountant NOW!!!! ......you can thank me for this very excellent advice on April 15th)
Two days ago, I called Ex who recently bought himself a very pretty, apple-red Dell laptop .......to ask if I could borrow his old laptop for the conference. When I asked him he said "no" at which point I was congratulating myself for divorcing this "doesn't share well with others" person when he said ......are you ready for this? ........"I'm planning on getting you one of your own". Really??!! choke He's pleased because for once, I'm speechless.
Disclaimer: remember reconciliation is completely and totally not ever going to be a concept--I said before that I would occasionally say nice things about Ex--we're just a great divorced couple who mostly are pretty darn nice to each other. He apparently plans to be nice about a new laptop! We shall see. Oh in case you're wondering too since it's now in writing on my blog if I'm using this as coercion, don't worry about that either--Ex doesn't read my blog. Umm let's see, he's probably asked me the name of my blog fifteen times so far because he keeps forgetting [really?] Reconciliation? Uh no, never. Even if there is a laptop in my near future.
While we're on the subject, here's an update on Steve (who also never reads my blog and has no idea what it's called even though a number of his friends (hi Randy!) read it and, even, remember the name of it ......mental note: find nice man who shows a passing interest in my interests) Ok Steve update: we are not together anymore but we've talked a couple of times. So that's good. I don't want him out of my life for good. I need him around for comic relief! But as Randy recently said "Lord help the woman that loves him!!" and, I think, he was talking to me .....
Enough for today. Tomorrow ...what's a Poken?
