He Said: “The Red Carpet”

August 10, 2010 by  

Holy Schnikes!  2,400 attendees at a conference and 90% of them were women…and I was lucky enough to be one of the 240 guys.  I’m not so sure that the conference hosts had it wrong – it may have been closer to 24 guys in attendance.  Woohoo!!

All kidding aside, I was shocked at the intensity, passion, and loyalty that the group had for their industry.  I’m not sure what I was expecting, but the ladies in this group definitely have their act together.

However, I do have a few points of follow-up from Kat’s post, as you would expect:

  • Point #1 – yes, we prepared 3 travel mugs for the trip.  As “luck” would have it, we (ok, she) finished one on the WAY to the train.  What I didn’t realize is that this would be a common theme for the wifey for the entire trip.
  • Point #2 – look at the first picture in the post.  HOLY CRAP – I have horns!!  What the hell is wrong with my head?!?!  She did call me a devil when I tried for relations for the 3rd night in a row, but she didn’t have to Photoshop nubbins onto my dome.  Why couldn’t she use a better picture of me?  Probably because SHE looks so darn cute in that photo.  Great, super.
  • Point #3 – I am admittedly a spaz when I travel with my wife because she has caused me much past pain & suffering when we’ve traveled together.  We’ve missed a plane before (which led her to hang on the pant leg of the US Airways employee, yelling “YOU DON’T UNDERSTAND!!!  MY PARENTS ARE WAITING FOR US TO GO TO DINNER!!!” Classic.), and have had many near misses.  I’m still not sure why they call them “near misses”…aren’t they actually “near hits?”
  • Point #4 – We DID run all 3 mornings…just not together.  Ms. Vodkahead ran with me two mornings, but for some reason she couldn’t make it 3 in a row.  Not sure it’s the same reason that caused her to answer one of my questions with the words “Shebelhorn toodles mini fenton seventeen” followed by an innocent giggle, or forced to her to stay in bed rather then give me a hug before I left the next morning.  Rumor has it that she ran “sometime around 9 am” on Sunday morning, but I have no evidence to prove it.
  • Point #5 – I DID see two naked women this past weekend.  Fortunately for me, one was my wife.  Unfortunately for me, the second caught me completely off guard and I didn’t need a picture as a permanent reminder for my burned retinas.

Kudos again to the girls of Blogher 2010 – I couldn’t have been more impressed by the turnout, the flow of the conference, and the number of sponsors looking for partnership.  Now, if we can only get a few more elevators in the Hilton New York, we’d have it made…
