The Observer had a cartoon a while back where these guys in a coffee shop are chatting and one says to the other “So, half way through dinner she googled me on her blackberry and found my ex-girlfriend’s blog so that was pretty much that”. His friend replies “do you know that three of those terms didn’t even exist five years ago?”
So, I was playing with the computer and I saw this post from Fluid Pudding and I said to my loving spouse “guess what Jeff gave Angela?”. And he said “eh, who, what?” because he is not as up on my computer stalkees as I would like. “A ticket to the blogHer thingy” I said. And he said “eh, who, what?” and I explained that it was this conference that everyone was going to and I would like to go too and he looked at me blankly. “Off you go then, nobody’s stopping you”. There are times when this whole independent woman thing palls. Somehow, I feel that I will not be going to California at the end of July.
Oh! But you must!
You go girl! Think of all the sleep you’ll get on a trans-Atlantic, trans-American flight. Two of them if you decide to come back
CAD makes a very good point, there.
It’s hard to sleep well in economy on longhaul flights, even if there are no children about.
Angela, I would love to, maybe next year considering the pros and cons of long haul flight as identified by CAD, pog and sibling.
