    ok well blogon is about to be over 

    and ive learned several things.

    – you really can talk for two days about a variety of different aspects about blogging
    – blogging conferences should have extention cords and outlets just as available as chairs
    – panels should be limited to one moderator, two panelists, a three minute intro, a twenty minute discussion, and a ten minute q & a
    – anyone who takes the stage needs to come prepared with a joke
    – blogging conferences should have really good wifi capable of handling all the bloggers in the room
    – everyone should have to wear a funny hat on the last day of the panel

    im pooped. i nearly fell asleep on the subway here. its gorgeous outside. in about an hour we will be at the Daily Show thanks to our good friend Jason Ross, former Nexite who has been writing for the show for several years.

    tonight perhaps some indian food in brooklyn

    maybe some drinks with the ladies from last night even though i just realized that only one of them was over 21,

    i noticed that i rarely say my prayers before i pass out with a new babe so heres my belated prayer,

    dear Lord,

    thank you for everything youve given me. my cup overfloweth. im considering a super big gulp cup. i cant believe that you do all of this for me. i know i dont deserve it so i will do my best not to be a jerk about it. those girls last night were amazing. im not handsome. i dont know what these girls want with me. i wasnt even funny. i barely had anything to say other than wow cool tattoos.

    also thank you for letting me meet all the cool bloggers and shakers at the conference. thanks for letting me meet some of my readers. i know i dont deserve any of that either. why are you doing this for me? is it to spread the Good News? fine, consider it spread.

    you know i totally believe in you and i do my best to be a good person. for some reason i didnt buy condoms at the drug store because i had no idea what was in store for me. what you have taught me on this trip is: when i leave my house, everything is in store for me.

    also thank you for letting me go to ucsb. i drank and smoked and partied and i was able to stay up super late and wake up pretty early and not make a fool out of myself – more than i usually do. thank you for letting me practice how to write over all of these years – its paid off better than if i had taken guitar lessons. plus i dont have to wear mascara.

    also thank you for getting me this job at Buzznet. i think i will do a great job there. we have some competition which is great cuz i love competition.

    also thank you for letting my book agent contact me today. i know ive been resisting writing a real book but maybe theres something down that path that you see and i dont. and maybe im being a lazy bastard.

    thanks for all the great food ive been able to eat here.

    please bless everyone especially the cubs
