Blog Me, Lawyer Mama, Blog Me
Mocha Mom has asked all of us heading out to BlogHer in TWO DAYS (Woot!) to introduce ourselves in 10 seconds. Now, I don't think I've ever written anything you could read in 10 seconds or less but I'll try.

  • My name is Stephanie. You can call me Steph, but not Stephie. Only my dad gets to call me that.
  • I like dry, dirty martinis. I like them a lot. Only, I don't get to drink them so much anymore because: (a) I don't want to drop the baby; and (b) my employer frowns upon employees drunk at work. If I have more than one in a night at BlogHer, it won't be pretty.
  • I love shoes. I have too many. But I can't figure out how to fit more than 2 pairs into my luggage because I don't want to check a bag. Somehow I think it would be overkill to FedEx my new green wedges to the hotel, don't you?
  • If you're doing the BlogHer scavenger hunt, I wear a 6.5 but I sometimes buy a 7 because my feet are a little wide and nobody makes wide sizes for the really cute shoes. (I used to wear a 5.5, but pregnancy.... Sigh. Need I say more?) Anyone want to be my scavenger hunt partner? And a question: do I count as a blogger from Louisiana (worth some points) or just Virginia (apparently worthless)?
  • I'm an introvert. I may talk a good game here, but I'm pretty uncomfortable in new social situations. So, please don't think I'm standoffish or snobbish if I don't run up to you with a big hug and start chatting as if we're best friends. We can be, but give me some time to get cozy. And if you're a talker, I'm a listener. Come sit by me! But if you're also a listener like me, I'll talk. I swear I will. I want to meet you anyway.
  • Whatever we talk about, don't tell me the ending to the new Harry Potter book. I just started it and I doubt I'll have time to finish it before leaving on Thursday. If you spoil the end for me I may have a public hissy fit.
  • I have magnets to give away at BlogHer. They're super cute (I think) but they have a picture of me on them. Is that narcissistic?
  • I like to talk politics and I love to naval gaze, but I'm unlikely to bring up a controversial subject with someone I've just met. I'm far more likely to talk about these:

I could talk about the boys for hours, but please don't let me. I want to hear about you and your kiddos too.

Then we can talk politics.

I am incredibly EXCITED! Can you tell?

I am so bummed I am not going! Send me a button anyway? :D

I wear a 6.5 but I sometimes buy a 7 because my feet are a little wide and nobody makes wide sizes for the really cute shoes.

OMG! You have my feet! Seriously, I could've written that. (Except I don't remember my feet being size 5.5--I think that was when I was in high school, perhaps.)

Take a photo of you and Kyla with an empty space in the middle. I'll photoshop myself in.

And...save me a magnet? Pretty please? Talk me up a little? At least mention my name once in passing, like geez, if Julie were here she'd geek us all out or if Julie were here she'd get this bootie shaking or wouldn't it be a hoot if Julie were here!

Flutter - One is yours babe. I sent you an email.

APL - No shit! Really? My damn foot grew a half size with each pregnancy. Of course, it was a good excuse to go shopping but I mourn the loss of some of my shoes.

Julie - One is yours as well. Email me address & it's all yours! I probably won't send them until I get back, but I promise I'll send one. I'll definitely take lots of photos for you. You could take a bunch of yourself in various poses & outfits & we can totally photoshop your ass in! Next year you are coming if I have to come down to Texas and drag your ass onto a plane.

Politics and a magnet exchange! Count me in! See you there! (And I wear a size 7 shoe!)

Blogger slouching mom said...

OK, it's official. I'm jealous. And what is it with all of you tiny-footed blogging women?

Blogger Christine said...


sad, sad me not going to blogher.


Blogger Joy, of course said...

Have fun! Can you post a picture of your magnet when you get back. The curiousity is killin me!

Blogger OneFullHouse said...

What is BLOGHER? I want to go!!!

Blogger Alpha DogMa said...

My hips and feet - two things damaged by pregnancy. Totally worth it mind you, cos I too could go on about my kids FOR HOURS.

Blogger Jenn said...

Natalie Merchant said it best, "Oh, jealousy..."

Magnets? Brilliant.

Blogger Lawyer Mama said...

If anyone would like a magnet, email me at lawyermama at gmail dot com & give me your address & I'll send you one. And yes, I can post a picture of it, although I bet I've still got the graphic for it on my home computer. I'll post that. Even better, right?

Hmmm... my feet are the only thing pregnancy and breastfeeding didn't change. ALthough, some things got smaller (and saggier).

Blogger CPA Mom said...

Really? You don't want your roommate to be your scavenger partner?

Try finding cute shoes in a size 10! UGH!

I am so jealous, but I hope you have a wonderful time. The people who get to meet you will be VERY lucky!

AND...I must warn you...when I finally get to meet you, I WILL be doing to obnoxious hugging thing! :)

Blogger Pendullum said...

Such lucky women are going to Blogher...
They get to meet you!!!!!

Blogger Mrs. Chicky said...

WhooHoo! Another snooty bitch! Seemingly anyway. We'll scare everyone away together.

Can't wait to meet you!

Blogger Jen M. said...

SIGH. I wish I were meeting you all this summer!!!!!!

Save a magnet for me for BlogHer '08. I'll be there with bells on.

And you have very delicate sounding feet. If we ever meet you will know me by the ski-like appendages attached to my ankles.

Blogger Mamma said...

Okay I'm a nervous extrovert. I'll go right up to you and demand to know if you're lawyer mama, but then I'll worry that I made an ass of myself. So don't hate me.

I definitely want to talk politics and I'll drink the mojitos!

And there better be a magnet in your hot little hands for me. Very psyched to meet you.

Blogger jen said...

dude, we MUST find eachother. i can't wait to meet you. and i'll bring up controversy immediately, so don't you worry.

Blogger PinkPowerSuit.com said...

UGH... I wish I could go!!! You gals are all making me so envious. Have fun!

Blogger ewe are here said...

Oooh, green with envy here. ~Blogher AND magnets!


have fun!

Anonymous PT-LawMom said...

I totally want a magnet! I'll e-mail you. :)

I was at BlogHer in Second Life, but it was a little strange (at least the portions I attended on Saturday). Mostly goth avatars and a lot of talk about porn and sex. Not that I'm a prude, but it wasn't really what I was expecting BlogHer to be. IRL was probably MUCH better! :)
