Besides the masochistic desire to not sleep at all for three days, one of the reasons we attend conferences like BlogHer is to learn. I was curious as to how other women deal with blogging about their children, so I dropped in on @redneckmommy, @Ooph and @marymac's panel session called "Mom! Stop blogging about me!".

Time for lunch! While stuffing my face the ebullient @missversatile showed up and posed for me.
One of my fave bloggers is @LadyEstrogen. She's funny, she's smart and she 's very provocative. We sat down and had a drink together and she showed me the present she got from Trojan. Yes, people, apparently they were giving these vibes away at the booth and Lady E scored one. At least I think it was one; she may have had others hidden from my view. Tee hee.
However, at the Open Mic session right after the VOTY reception, I was pleasantly surprised to see the oh-so-dry reading by the elegant @PHDinParenting. She had me in giggles. So I drew her.

By this time, the music was starting to make me a little nauseous, with its unrelenting thrum-thrum-thrum. It dawned on me that I was completely exhausted. On my way to the elevators I passed a group of women sprawled on the Hilton hallway floor, mid-powow. Reclining with her friends was @cecilyK who I've admired for the past year for the strength of her personality. She appeals to me as a woman who endeavours to live life on her own terms.
As I walked past I really hoped to catch her eye, but she didn't look up. I kicked myself for my shyness, turned back and just asked if she'd let me draw her. She said yes!
