Be Cool HoneyBunny

I have been slacking and haven’t written about the TWO BlogHer parties I’ve been to already, but, hey!  I’ve been busy partying.  Besides, I’d just go on and on about the love I have for all these brilliant women I know and the ones I’m meeting and there’s something else I want to confess.

If you could see what I’m thinking while I’m talking to people, if there was a little comic book bubble over my head for you to read, it would be filled with things like this:

  • Oh, no.  I did NOT just say that.
  • Does this sound as lame to the people listening as it does inside my head?
  • Oops.  Maybe I wasn’t supposed to say that.
  • shutup shutup STOP stop talking

Eh, you get the idea.  I lose my mental balance sometimes when I am around so many, many people, and then I start talking, because that’s one of my working functions, and I have no idea if I’m making sense or using the right language.  Granted, I only speak the one language, but I worry that I’m not using it. 

It’s like I’m stoned, only I’m not.

I guess what I want to say is that if you are talking to me and I am babbling or sounding odd or looking confused, it’s just because I’m so overwhelmed and happy it made me short circuit.

    It’s probably a good thing I didn’t go to Blogher. I would a reverted to a 13 year old girl going to the New Kids on the Block concert.

    I went to a Katie Curtis (love her) concert when I was first pregnant with Griffin and I got to MEET HER and then I LITTERALLY CRIED LIKE A BABY AND FREAKED HER OUT. So, yeah. I guess I’m stalkerish that way.

    I’ve been doing the same sort of babbling lately and I have the exact same thought bubbles over my head, only I’ve been doing it in JOB INTERVIEWS and afterwards I just want to disembowel myself.

    I have felt the same way here at BlogHer! There are several times I’ve just thought “oh crap, was that out loud?” in the middle of a sentence. So just know you’re not alone. 🙂

    Hey woman! I happened to think you were brilliant, but of course I was drinking. Seriously, I was very happy to meet you. It was a blast!

    I think we share a common thought balloon pool!

    You left out the thought balloon over the other person’s head though, b/c they are thinking “Holy sh.t, she did NOT just say that!? That’s so cool and amazing!”
