Events Insist, says an exhausted Queen of Spain*

If you have a week in which your children get 103 degree fevers, you need to shop and pack for a trip, your new computer is shipped via slow boat to China, a Governor gets busted for whores, another female role model says something entirely offensive, you are molested by the Geico Caveman, you need to document every cow in Texas for your Bovine-loving son, watch stage dives, bowl with geeks, witness a minor shitstorm, stay up way past bedtime, return home to find rashes and snot, administer breathing treatments, attempt to read 2000 emails, set up a new computer, AND do the laundry…you might babble a bit too. Oh, and somewhere in there Mississippi voted and Guy Kawasaki tried to get me to like the idea of Hooters girls next door to BlogHer Con serving drinks to BlogHim Con goers.

I’m even too tired to linkbait all that up there. Maybe later.

Did I mention I also had to finish the dreaded Kindergarten Registration Packet of DOOM? Packet of doom, I say.

Which is all a very long winded way of introducing a video in which I get even more long winded about going to SXSW.

Update: UnBarQueenConPodBlogTwit CampUpStartWeekend

Due to a new project with BlogHer, it’s very possible I will not be HOME for my birthday on December 10th. If I randomly announce a city…I’m hoping you’ll be able to help me celebrate the dirty pee birthday. I could go on about how I will be alone and sad and cold and maybe forlorn or something…but I know you guys will help me out…right? And we’re not talking turkey this time around…or are we???

UnBarQueenConPodBlogTwitCamp UpStartWeekend

I’m having a birthday soon. Let’s just say I’ll be turning an age that rhymes with dirty pee.

While I love all the conferences we attend and the speakers and sessions and swag and booths and pitches …I’d just like to hang out with everyone. Everyone meaning YOU…my blogamigos, my twits, my second lifers, my facebookers (cough bastards cough), my photraders, my utter-erz, my social media-ers, my friends, my community.

So I say…let’s have one event for US. One event where we can meet up and just hang out. Crash on my couch or get hotel rooms in another city. Set up tents for all I care. My only requirements are friends and fun.
