Miscellaneous thoughts from my first day at BlogHer 08

At BlogHer08
We have this look of awe because we discovered all of the presenters are in the nude, and no one wrote about that in the conference program.

That's what I would title that picture.

Okay. First of all. My braids. I was hot and my hair was bugging me so I did what I always do when I'm hot and my hair is bugging me when I'm in Portland and not going to a business meeting. I put it in braids. But come on. Here? One woman said she knew I was a lesbian "because of the braids." WTF. And how many other people have asked if I'm native american, or even, what tribe I'm from. People. Just because a woman wears her hair in braids does not make her native american--though know I am very flattered by that. But really.

Having a good time, popped into the Gold Dust Lounge this evening, a bar just off Union Square. Lordy, lordy. This is a lot of fun.

Braids make a lesbian? Damn, I must have missed that memo. I guess I'll have to braid my hair today so I can be like all the other lesbians.

The caption made me laugh so hard I almost spit out my coffee.

I wore my hair in braids once and people said that I looked like Heidi and should be yodeling in the Alps. But no one guessed lesbian. Guessed I missed that memo too. ;)

You two are so damn cute. Yeah, braids make the lesbian.

I knew you were lesbian when you told me you have a wife. It's a giveaway every time.

WTF? People make the weirdest assumptions.

Anyway, the braids look great!

I hope you are having a fabulous time.

The braids were hot.

(Just like half of the rooms, while the other half were arctic. Just to mix it up a bit, I guess.)

Lovely meeting you. I hope blogher was wonderful for you.
