Oh San Francisco, You so Crazy.

Golden Gate Bridge
That is how I feel.
Overwhelmed with both good, bad. Happy. sad. Anger. Love.
But mostly good, happy and love.
This weekend will take days if not weeks for me to process. The love that I felt from both friends and strangers alike. The unwarranted ugliness in a crowded room. The sadness I saw watching a friend struggle to keep it together. The beauty I saw in a group of women whose positive energy (OMG. BIG FAT OPRAH HEAD) carried me through one of the most terrifying, yet amazing moments of my entire life. The cheeseburgers. Oh my GOD, the cheeseburgers.
I’ll write it all very soon, I just need to sort it all out first.
And by “sort it all out” I really mean “take a 4 day nap because Holy Mother of Hotel Security, I am tired.”
(P.S. I met some amazing women who have wonderfully written blogs and I look forward to sharing them with you in the next few days. Today, I really think you should go and read Lesbian Dad. I promise you that it will be worth your time.)

    And the internet (and Bossy) love you right back. Now please excuse Bossy as she falls asleep in her pile of mashed potatoes.

    I’m sorry there was ugly but it sounds like it was outweighed by lovely. Um, yeah. Anyway, I’m really enjoying your photos and look forward to the posts. xoxo

    Um, hi. I never officially introduced myself. But I’m the one who was all “OH! You are looking for homeless people to give cheeseburgers, not to like, be mean to them or something” on the street. I was with Whoorl. Anyhow, I enjoyed some of your fries, so thanks!

    I am completely green with envy. I want to make it my mission in life to be there next year, but if there’s anything I’ve learned it’s that I cannot plan things a year in advance because it never ever turns out. Except maybe the wedding, but I doubt BlogHer requires a 10,000 dollar deposit, eh?
    Anyways, I can’t wait to hear all about it and I’m hoping that all the health stuff has started to mellow some for you. You deserve a good long break from that crap.

    I swear with god as my witness, I will Jell-Mud-Bikini-Baby Pool-Wrestle you for Lesbian Dad. And you will love every minute of it.
    PS: I totally miss you. Like, bad, and stuff. And I still have a cheeseburger. 😉

    Fully understand – slept all day today. Such a pleasure to see you again. So proud of what you read at the keynote. And reminding you that you looked beautiful all weekend.

    Did you take that picture? Cuz it’s awesome. I’m looking forward to hearing more about your trip.

    Oh holy heck I know exactly what you mean and I’m still processing as we speak. The aftermath is hard to handle. It was great seeing you in the whirlwind.

    Wow, that picture is gorgeous. I’ll say it again, but I’m so glad I met you, even if it was only for a brief moment at the People’s Party. Stefanie and I were trying like mad to track you down the other nights, but you’re like, popular and stuff.

    I love the photo, taking a great picture like that at night is no easy feat. The colors are incredible. I was not at Blogher so I did not meet you but I love your blog!

    The cheeseburger party was amazingly fun even if security kicked us out too soon. Also? Red velvet cupcakes=my favorite! Thanks for a fabulous party Y!

    I never managed to utter my name either (I was seriously laughing too hard at all the cheeseburger hat awesomeness), but I was with Schnozz and Moose and Jenny, who made The Mullet Hat. Long live those pictures, forever and ever, amen.

    You are so very kind, with that “hie thee on over to Lesbian Dad” PS up there. I very much hope anyone who meandered over felt it worth the trip.
    You! You are wonderful, life-loving, hilarious. Everything. I can’t get the Infamous Cheeseburger Party picture out of my mind of you talking to the security guard, with Lindsay’s caption on it “We’re just writers, sir!”
