BlogHer 08 is in San Francisco (driving distance! Woot!), and I would really like to go, at least to the Saturday session. I have to "discover" at least an extra $200+ in my budget however, which I suspect will be tricky.
This is your chance to either convince me to go, or convince me to stay.
If I do scrape together some moneys, or maybe repurpose my stimulus package, Julia, I can spend the night in your wee little condo yes (There is no possibility of me ALSO affording the hotel room, unfortunately)? We can celebrate your birthday a week early, since I'll be at my cousin's wedding the following weekend.

Apparently Amber is dying to give me money. If anyone else is NOT suffering from the U.S. economic downturn, is desperately wishing to sponsor my writing/blogging endeavors, and would like to give me money to go to BlogHer '08, my paypal is grace134 at yahoo dot com. If I don't go I'll give it back, but honestly I'd probably be so flattered to receive $5 that I'd put the rest on credit anyways. Plus I'll write you an ode.
