Monster Bunny, Clever Crafter, and Other Nonsense

As my brain recovers from the last month of overload, here are a few more tidbits from BlogHer. Is it possible to run a disk de-fragmentation on one’s brain?

1) We met Nina, the host of Sprout’s Good Night Show! She was cleverly dressed in the same colors she wears on the show, for easy recognition. Nina was lovely and friendly, and I missed the opportunity to ask her whether they had actually changed her plush co-Star’s creepy voice, or if I’d just gotten used to it.

SwingDaddy said I should have asked whether she’d made any questionable videos that will get her fired like Melanie, the much adored original host.

2) My sister and I got to chat with Jenny, legendary crafter, party-thrower, and taste-maker of ljcfyi! I met her at BlogHer two years ago and was so happy that she remembered me (plus the little pink momo-chan that I’d given her). We’re hoping to get together with her the next time she’s doing a conference in California.

3) After a long day, we were heading back to our hotel room, but first we had to pass this:

A giant pink Energizer Bunny, so tall that his ears were pinned against the ceiling. As we turned sideways to squeeze by him, I whispered to Lady O, “Do you think there’s anyone inside or do they just wheel it around?”

She noticed that the drum beats (yes, the poor creature had to beat a drum the whole time it was standing there) were uneven, and decided that there was indeed a person inside.

We managed to get by unscathed, and thankfully, the Energizer suite was closed, bunny and drumming removed, before bedtime.

4) This tale has nothing to do with me, but click over to Suebob’s tale of true embarrassment at the Community Keynote.

At some point, I'll stop pretending I'm going to catch up with posts and move on, I promise.
