The eagle has landed

And so have we.

Chris and I have arrived in San Jose and are having way more fun than should be legal. Well, I am. Chris keeps saying something about how I’m mean. I’m sure she’s joking.

I made sure our trek started out right by forcing her to pose for a commemorative photo. As you can see, she is disgustingly photogenic and approximately the size of a sparrow. Bitch.

[Edited to add: Here is the view I enjoyed for most of the trip. There may have also been mountains and stuff out the window, I dunno.]

    I feel like I know both of you from reading your blogs, but yet, you guys do not know me.

    You BOTH are photogenic! I have straight teeth, thus resulting in big, open smiles envy. My parents were too poor to afford braces for me, and as of yet, so am I :(

    Have fun!!

    You’re suppose to be vacationing and having fun in the sun with lovely witty friends. And please have at least four or five maragritas, then write up in the morning.

    I had to restrain Mir for rubbing the man’s head… several times.

    I’m with you Mir. I would have totally rubbed his head too! Was he cute? :)

    Have a great time and don’t do anything I wouldn’t do!

    You womens are so cute! I didn’t want to use the adjective “cute” again, but could not resist. The shiny bald head? Not so cute. I’d be tempted to write on it with a Sharpie.

    Have fun!
    Not wanting to start anything, but I was just reading on another favorite blog that there were going to be a few men attending BlogHer, and this blogger was regretting not going. Apparently one commenter thought it was absurb that any man would go, and would be seriously pissed off if any showed up. “BlogHer is a “serious forum” and a “safe space” for women bloggers to discuss the issues that face them, and men showing up would just ruin everything.”

    I love touching my hubby’s head. It’s so … cool.


  1. Notes from the Trenches » Ramblin’ like a shut-in - July 27, 2006

    […] So I’ll send you here to see a picture of Mir and I as we starved on the plane but bravely kept smiling. Also note the man in the photo with the headphones, I think he put them on to drown out our endless talking and laughing. […]
