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?

    Chicago! Why, I can drive there! I am so in.

    I wish it was closer, but…. I AM SO PLANNING ON BEING THERE!!!!

    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.

    You’re staying in my hotel room, right? I’ll need someone to hold me close at night.

    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,

    I’d come, if I was positive I’d return with all my man parts still intact.

    This is one that I might actually try and make, jsut to say that Ive been there. Can I sleep over at your house? (in a non-stalkerish way of course)? LOL

    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 –

    Sounds like a lot of fun. But Florida to Chicago?
    Not this year.

    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.

    If I don’t go you have to bring a backpack.

  12. On November 14th, 2008 at 1:54 pm Backpacking Dad Says:

    Full of booze.

  13. On November 14th, 2008 at 2:10 pm Jenn Says:

    I hate shit like that. If I could make it though, I would. Just to see you.

  14. On November 14th, 2008 at 1:10 pm magpie Says:

    I think so. I do think so.

  15. On November 14th, 2008 at 2:21 pm Holly Says:

    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)).

  16. On November 14th, 2008 at 1:33 pm guilty noodles Says:

    I’ll be there… to stalk your ass!!! Watch out for the tiny Asian following you.

  17. On November 14th, 2008 at 2:51 pm Lynanne Says:

    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!

  18. On November 14th, 2008 at 4:14 pm Karen Says:

    Well, if it was was NY, I’d be all over it, but I don’t think I can make it to Chicago this year.

  19. On November 14th, 2008 at 3:56 pm heather Says:

    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

  20. On November 14th, 2008 at 5:13 pm Coco Says:

    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.

  21. On November 14th, 2008 at 5:01 pm Michelle Says:

    I’d love to go to put some faces with the blogs. But I would be a wallflower with Swirlgirl, lost in the sea of the big bloggers.

  22. On November 14th, 2008 at 6:13 pm baseballmom Says:

    too broke to afford it this year…

  23. On November 14th, 2008 at 6:19 pm Melissa Says:

    If I can get the time off and convince Brother Dear to let me couch surf, I am SO there! 🙂

  24. On November 14th, 2008 at 7:01 pm Kristen Says:

    It would be worth it to meet you dahhhhling!

  25. On November 14th, 2008 at 7:21 pm Fancy Says:

    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!

  26. On November 14th, 2008 at 8:37 pm giggleblue Says:

    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.

  27. On November 14th, 2008 at 9:20 pm Susan Says:

    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?

  28. On November 14th, 2008 at 10:34 pm Jenn Says:

    Only if I can hang out in my track pants with a cheap beer. But yeah, I have every intention of going.

    It will depend on who wins the battle – finances versus raging social insecurity!

  30. On November 15th, 2008 at 7:31 am honeywine Says:

    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

    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.

    I wish!!

  35. On November 15th, 2008 at 12:33 pm Sarah Says:

    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. 🙂

  36. On November 15th, 2008 at 7:11 pm Ginger Magnolia Says:

    I am so close, I would come just to get a glimpse of the magnificent Aunt Becky!

  37. On November 15th, 2008 at 9:07 pm shay Says:

    What is a BlogHer? Sounds fun but so far far away…..

  38. On November 15th, 2008 at 9:37 pm Jessica Bern Says:

    Went last year. If you can get there it is totally worth it. Had a great time.

  39. On November 16th, 2008 at 12:41 am LaskiGal Says:

    Yup. Will be there. I’m homesick. So I have to go . . .

  40. On November 16th, 2008 at 1:03 am Painted Maypole Says:

    ooooh… I went to school in Chicago, and have been thinking that is has been far, far, far too long since I have visited.


  41. On November 17th, 2008 at 1:04 pm andi Says:

    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.

  42. On November 18th, 2008 at 8:52 pm mumma boo Says:

    I’d love to go, but unless the Daver is willing to watch my two spawn while you and I drink ourselves silly, I’ll have to stay home. Waaaahhhhh!!!!

    *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.
