Running with Scissors: Nibbling and sipping

Ah, the glamour and pageantry of a healthy blogging convention. The glorious photographs of "nibbles" and "sips," the wacky shenanigans (funny faces! captured on camera!) and, finally, the furious blogging committed in fancy hotel rooms by sleepy type A women tucked into bed at 11 p.m. in order to get a good 6 hours of sleep before a pre-convention group blogger's run.

I envy the decadence of it all--like Rome before the fall or Las Vegas in the early 60's. "Hedonistic" is a word that comes to mind. Boring is another word that comes to mind. Also, "bleh" and "meh." And maybe "gah."

Foodbuzz held a convention last week in San Francisco and the healthy blogging ladies totally convened. Oh, and how they reveled!

A few choice "nibbles" and "sips" for us mere plebes to feast upon:


Trenton said:

I want my last 3 minutes back.

Paul said:

And here, all the cons I go to seem to be about groups of nerds drinking and having sex. What have I been missing out on?

The LHS said:

It's like my old youth group retreats, but with no praise-songs and far more sexual frustration.

Crissy said:

Anyone who doesn't fill her wine glass up to the top is an asshole.

Crissy said:

OMG. Can we say "asshole" on here? I'm wicked sorry.

MaryMel said:

Oh yes Crissy, "asshole" can be very well said here. In fact, it can be so well said here, there, and everywhere as of late, that dear old "asshole" stands a chance of getting used raw from over exposure. Haven't you been reading? ASSHOLE or its little buddy ass, appear to be the weekly special in words, and everyone is having just so much fun with them.

thanks for the link?

I actually did like my bagel better than the cinnabon, but this did make me laugh.
