If you’re following me on twitter or are friends with me on Facebook you are probably more than aware that I was in Las Vegas last weekend. Why is this such a big deal to me? Because I went to a conference where I didn’t really “know” anyone. I’ve been friends with them online and the one person I’d met in person couldn’t be there (THANKS JAMIE. J/K GURL.) The old Almie would have backed the eff out like, “a Tonka Truck” to quote J.Lo’s masterpiece “On The Floor.” The new Almie had a moment of hesitation, thought about purposefully catching strep throat, then realized, Holy Godzilla this could be the most fun EVER. And it was.
A few words: plastic guitar filled with margarita. Last year when I went to Vegas I saw these and wanted one so badly but didn’t buy it and I have regretted it ever since. Yes, I realize how lucky I am if this was one of my big life regrets. Not only did I get my guitar but I got a whole freaking band and a photographer. People who became my besties and who I completely adore. You guys, I made friends! Me, the sarcastic girl, who always feels awkward (look at the top of this site!!)
Most amazing was that my brother showed up! He wanted to see me, so he drove from Palo Alto. We hadn’t seen each other in a while and it was an amazing surprise. I didn’t take any photos but he’s in the second video. Here are some photos Kelly took (love you beebs).
True story about the wig photo: when I walked into the room everyone applauded. It was awesome.
I took video and compiled it into a sort of music video thing. Here are parts one and two:
Bloggers in Sin City ’11. 50 something bloggers, most of them girls, all of them awesome. Here’s what we did, ate, and drank.
It’s a bittersweet sinphony for the 2nd and last video installment of BiSC ’11. Love you and miss you all. Set to “Lust For Life” by Girls.
Anyway thanks for standing by me through my Vegas infatuation. xxxo.
