My son just asked me what we were having for dinner and I said “Chicken Vaginas”. I blame Blogher.

There are about a million things I want to write about my time in Chicago at BlogHer–and with the exception of ONE thing, they are all good. And I will write those things, as soon as my children stop making me pay for leaving them for 4 days and my neck stops punishing me for not taking my meds so that I could have “a drink.”
Until that happens, I’ll leave you with a picture that pretty much sums up how much damn fun that I had while I was there.
How to throw a hotel party, by Me
I’m telling you, if you ever need (hotel room) party planner, I’m your girl.
(P.S. Anyone who has pictures from the 2603 party, I’d really appreciate if you can send them to me.)
(P.S.S. If you were there and I didn’t get a chance to say hi, because there were 203590 people there, please say hi now. And no thanks are necessary for The Burger. HA HA.)

    This picture only makes me more sad that I couldn’t go. Now I have to make sure that Mr. Husband never sees it or there’s no way that I’ll be able to say that it’s a really important blogging convention and not some booze party.

    Well, I could always swap this picture out one of me sitting on the panel talking about important things and CRYING.
    I cried, dude. I knew I would cry.

    I wish I could go too! I am so hungry for a freakin cheese burger now! What did you cry about? Also how did it go with the weight loss presentation? Is that the correct word? Danielle you can’t go without me!!!!! I’ll tell on you to the Archer!!

  4. Meegan

    I can’t wait to hear more!! I’ll be stalking your blog ’til you post more info.
    Hope your neck is feeling better. OUCH.

  5. Marmite Breath

    Hurry up and give us details. I know I like to live vicariously through you. I’m so jealous about the Blogher thing. WAAAAAAH!
    (The title of this post reminds me of the time when I smoked way too much pot and then went to Taco Bell and instead of a fajita wrap, my friend asked for a vagina wrap and I was so stoned that I almost died laughing and pretty much almost fell out of the car). Man, now I feel old and boring. That was such a fun time.

    Those burly security guards made the party, I have to say. I almost dove through the shutters to dump my beer down the sink, the illicit underage drinking recollection was THAT STRONG.
    I don’t think we ever officially met, but thanks for the party!

    Kyla, define “party it up.”
    My Bulging disks pretty much ruined any chance of real fun for me (meaning I couldn’t do the worm, really.), because I couldn’t turn my head without crying.
    BUT, THE LORD KNOWS I TRIED REALLY HARD to pretend like I was “fine!”

  8. DebbieS

    Welcome home! I was worried about how your neck would feel after that plane ride! But it looks like you managed to have a McWonderful time =)
    So when are we goin’ for that cinnamon dolce Frapuccino, hmm?

  9. bitemycookie

    it’s not a party til the paddy wagon shows up! honestly, after meeting you, i’m surprised the cops were following *us* around all weekend instead of your impromptu, late-nite-fancy-hotel-rule-breaking band of trouble-making bloggettes. yeah, you heard me. t.r.o.u.b.l.e. just how i like it. which is why it was such a pleasure meeting your tipsyness. may we do it again soon.
    in the mean time, enjoy the rehab-like effect of going back to one’s family after throwing down like a roadie for 5 days.
    hope your neck is feeling better. that’s no kinda party.

    Oh, Y…I love you so. You’re completely right; we did NOT hang out nearly enough. Consequently, do not be surprised if you find a wee, uncoordinated girl with bangs skulking outside your house bearing an overnight bag and wine. Lots of wine.

  11. Kyla

    Y: I SOOOO almost asked you to do the Monkey in the Our Bodies, Our Blogs session to lighten the mood…but I didn’t want to anger the Disks.
    I almost peed my pants when you said my name. Seriously, I was shocked. But you are amazing and lovely and beautiful and give great hugs in spite of your angered disks.

  12. Dee

    Y: Glad you’re back! Looks like you had fun at BlogHer, for sure. Love the McD’s hat and the “aw, yeah!” thumbs up in that pic.
    That pic makes me remember fondly the time I went to a photojournalism conference with my UGA class. My friend and I checked into the hotel and had to grab a cart to roll in all of our crap. When the Bellboys saw a BLENDER sitting atop our mountain of bags and coolers, they KNEW we were going to be trouble.
    Good times, man.
    Anyway, I hope your neck feels better soon. As a person with chronic back problems, I feel yer pain, girl. ‘m sending some healing vibes your way.

  13. Lizarita

    I was at the Cool Kids Party in 2603 and bearly crapped myself when I walked in and realized it was the Cool Kids Party. Anywho…it was so awesome to meet you and party with you AND the McD’s bag on your head. And even though you said no thanks were necessary, I must thank you for the cheeseburger that gave me gas for the rest of the evening. And my roommate thanks you as well.

    I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: BEST PARTY EVER. My favorite part was when the phone would ring and you’d go “shhhhh! everyone shhhh! quiet!” and we’d all stop talking and turn the music off, so you could pick up the phone and say very politely and demurely “hello?”, like you were just kicking back in your room alone, watching some HGTV. And then it would be someone else just wanting to know which room the party was in, and we’d all go back to talking and shrieking again.

  15. girlplease

    duuuudddeeeeeeeee i’m so jealous. you. in my home town! and of course, that’s when i had to go OUT of town. wtf, man.
    you have to tell me all about it.

  16. Jenn

    Ohhhh you are WRONG. Many, many thanks for the hamburger that was snarfed in one bite!
    Best. Party. Ever. Even when big men made it stop! I am so ready for 2603 part 2!
    (Did you make sure there wasn’t anyone else left hiding in the “closet” before you checked out?

  17. Melanie

    Yet another picture that makes me wish I had gone (and that I knew some other bloggers to party with). You look adorable in that hat. Very chic.

  18. rsm

    I’m sad I missed you. 🙁 Call me this week? (Did you lose my # again?) So we can GAWSUP! And I can tell you how beautiful you look.

  19. elizabethsheryl

    Can I just say (After looking at your flickr photos like a stalker) DAMN THERE ARE A LOT OF SKINNY BLOGGIN WIMMINS. Now I see why you were so stressed..but you looked FABULOUS. I think your extra weight is all in your breasts..and as martha stewart would say, that’s a good thing

  20. Liz

    Lizarita was my roommate, and I do thank you for giving her the cheeseburger that caused ALL THAT GAS.
    And? I was three doors down from the Cool Kids Party? Who in the what now?
    I’m such a tool.
    It was wonderful to meet you, Yvonne. You are even more beautiful in person. Inside and out.

  21. kerflop

    I had duct taped myself to a bunch of people going to your party, but had to make a pit stop in my own room to drop all that crap they load you down with, and when I came back to the 20th floor to find y’all, I couldn’t. I forgot the room number and just walked, pressing my ear to each door, finally giving up and going to bed at the really early hour of midnight.
    I was disappointed b/c I wanted to hug you and tell you how hot I think you are.


    Lizarita kept saying, “You have to meet her! You have to!”, and I’m so glad she did. You are wonderful. Thank you for being so nice!

  23. Jazz

    I kept wondering who it was that everyone referred to as “Y”. That’s my official initial, see and out of curiosity, I had to meet you. It was not an official meet, just sort of a “Hi!”. Next time, I’m following you around…be warned! Party looks awesome. 😉

  24. Susan Getgood

    Y, you are just about the most genuine person I have ever met. I was so glad to grab a few minutes with you at BlogHer. And I absolutely love that you posted this picture!
