Oh What A Night!

Me, Hilly of Snackiepoo and Miss Britt

It’s 7:00 PM Sunday evening I think I’ve finally recovered from TequilaCon 2008. Of course it took several doses of Tylenol, Sudafed, a fuckton of water, several meals and 12 hours of sleep but I’m doing O.K.

Before you become all judgmental about me drinking alcohol because my God, how can the girl with cancer possibly go out and consume alcohol??? I’m human and one night of drinking isn’t going to kill me. Now that we got that out of the way, let me continue.

The bloggers I met last night were some of the nicest, down to earth people that I’ve had the pleasure to talk to. Life has been pretty crappy for me lately but last night was absolutely so much fun!

Take a look at the pictures! Do they say fun or what?


TequilaCon and Life

I’m feeling much better now that I’ve had a full night of sleep but now I’ve got a lot to do! Tonight is TequilaCon which is being held here in Philadelphia. There are so many bloggers I just can’t wait to meet! You can keep up with the happenings too! Just follow me on Twitter or check for updates on the right sidebar all day and night!

Now I have to thank Tug for sending me this video this morning…just when I really needed a shot in the arm too. Randy Paush has it so incredibly right. I’ve had so many failures through out my life but I thank God that I’ve always turned them into opportunities…every single one of them.

Please enjoy and learn something from the video.


Game On

I asked if you were game and you played pretty well by asking some great questions.

Diana from Of The Princess and The Pea thought she has an “unoriginal” question but this is the first time anyone has ever asked me this question:

“Do people say you look like Bette Midler a lot? I think there’s a striking resemblance.”

When I was much younger, like 20 years younger people told me I looked a lot like Tracey Gold in the 80’s…hair and all but Bette Midler? She is gorgeous, I am not. In this picture we have similar hair but other than that…she is way prettier.

Meg of Historic Moment wanted to know:

“How do you deal with the Hannah Montana craze?”

Well Meg, fortunately my 11 year old has no interest in HM so I only have the 8 year old to contend with. Last evening we had a conversation about the photo that was taken for Vanity Fair. I decided it was better that she heard about if from me instead of her 2nd grade friends at school or 5th grade kids on the bus. Sure, it was probably a risky parenting move but she’s an intelligent kid and rather than insult that intelligence I embraced it.

Occasionally Teenie has a meltdown when she wants some Hannah Montana stickers or a new poster and I say “no”. She’s very persistent and thinks she can wear me down by asking me, “Mom can I have them? Mom can I have them? Mom can I have them?” However, she is getting a Hannah Montana bedroom. I’m hoping this will stop the arguments every time we go out.

Used To Be Me of Why Are You Stalking Me? wants to know:

“What ride are you looking forward to at Disney?”

I’m terrified of roller coasters…TERRIFIED! I’m also petrified of heights. The first time and last time I went to Disney the first ride I went on was the Tower of Terror. I had no idea what it was and damn, was I pissed after it was over. It scared the living crap out of me. All I wanted to do was go on the Tea Cup ride the rest of the time I was there.

This time I’ve promised Dude, the girls and myself that I will go on the Rock N’ Rollercoaster. Dude told me it goes from 0 to 60 mph in like 2 seconds. I’ll have to go on it alone because Dude will have to stay with the girls so this will be HUGE if I can do it.

I’m a big chicken so if anyone wants to go on this ride with me please let me know.

Chatty of Whatchu Tawkin Bout asks:

“When is your favorite time to blog and what is your favorite part of blogging?”

My favorite time to blog is when I can find time to think clearly, when the house is quiet and no one is disturbing me. I also have to have something to say. I’d rather not blog if I don’t have anything I need or want to write about and since I’m as genuine as possible I’ll delete a post instead of publishing it if it seems forced or not like me.

When I started blogging it was to start a diary and that was my favorite thing, except I didn’t expect that anyone would read it. Over the years I’ve met some very great, caring, funny and giving people and that’s what’s become my favorite thing about blogging. That and all the lessons I’ve learned from other people.

One last question for this post and then I have to get ready for work!

Sister D, who does not have a blog, but should really consider writing one asks:

“Who’s your favorite sister?”

Most of my childhood memories are filled with physical and emotional abuse from my mother. However the good times I remember are with my sister…

Sister D is my real sister and my only sister. We share the same father so she’s actually my half sister but I would never consider her anything less that my entire sister. We are 12 years apart…I am the older sister, she is the younger one.

So in answer to her question…she is my favorite sister only because she introduced me to sushi, likes to go to Starbucks with me, took care of me when I had a broken leg and because I love her very much!

Now I’m late for work!
