Neener Neener

I'm goin' to BlogHer, I'm goin' to BlogHer. . .


Are you going? Do tell.

Also, for my spring break I'm going to Cleveland. JEALOUS? You should be because it is going to rock, for several reasons: 1. I'll be giving a paper at the meeting of the International Society for the Study of Narrative (oh you know we'll be on our baddest behavior); 2. The mighty Cuyahoga River is there, and I have always enjoyed the REM song of the same name; 3. I will be rooming with one of my best girls Erika; 4. We'll be staying in a hotel and I bet there will be a TV right in the room! That I can see FROM THE BED.

Are any of you readers in or near Cleveland, and would you like to come meet me for a drinky at the hotel? It's like April 7-11, at the Renaissance hotel downtown? I think it's the Renaissance. Some old building with like, a fountain? And hopefully TV's. Seriously Clevelanders, let me know.

Have you been to Cleveland? It's lovely in April. Honest. I used to live there, so I know. I know you'll be downtown, but you should *SO* drive east on Carnegie and it will take you to Cleveland Heights. Go to Coventry Road, and get a milkshake at Tommy's. Best. Idea. Ever.

You can thank me at BlogHer.

Hey, I'm going to Narrative too! I'd imagine BlogHer is more fun.

Becky said...

Good grief, Perpetua! Then we most definitely need to get a drink.

I don't know if BlogHer will be more fun, but wouldn't it be awesome if corporations and marketers were knocking themselves out to give stuff to people at Narrative?

What an upside-down world that would be.

Michele said...

That sounds like a rockin' conference. Good luck with your paper.

Amy said...

Ain't no party like a Narrative party coz a Narrative party...don't...STOP.

Or it does, but they keep TALKING about it forever.

Becky said...

It's funny cuz it's true, Amy!

Aw, now I kind of want to go to THAT, too. August is too far away.

Cassie said...

Argh! Phil goes in for transplant on April 7th, otherwise I'd road trip it down to hang out in the OH-IO with you.

Damn myeloma.

Becky said...

I guess you better stay there, Cassie. Damn myeloma is right.

Keely, I just watched the 30 Rock where Alec Baldwin says, "We all want to flee to the Cleve." Hilarious.

I want to go to BlogHer too, but my summer is non-plannable at this point due to the possibility of moving to Austin.
With or without moi, all of the ladies will have a memorable time in NYC.

Kate said...

so you are an academic and a blogger? cool. do your worlds intersect?

I'm on the waitlist for BlogHer. I cannot BELIEVE I missed out on early bird registration, being that I'm so cheap and all.
