As I mentioned in my BlogHer’11 Recap (sponsored by Paragon/Dirtt and Bradley Reid!), I totally met The Bloggess the night before the conference started. She was hiding out in a fake bathroom that was made especially for her at The People’s Party in the BlogHer hotel.
Anyway, her name is Jenny, and she rocks.Â Also, she’s taller than I though she would be. Not sure why, but for some reason I imagined her at like 5’3… so not the case. She towered over me (and I was in heels)!Â Anyhoo, IÂ managed not to rushÂ up to her and hug-attack her,Â and she was super nice in return. We talkedÂ mostly about Alaska, because she was leaving for a cruise with her family the next day – her big question? “What kind of coat should I bring?”
Jenny, I’m still asking this question. Adam HATES that question, because IÂ ask it like, every time we go outside… and I was born and raised here in Alaska. So, I hope my answerÂ was helpful (I think I said something like, “Oh,Â um, well,Â it’s been nice out,Â so, like, you probablyÂ don’t need a parka or anything. Not that you would have any reason to even own a parka.Â But bring a windbreaker. And a sweatshirt. Or maybe a light fleece jacket. Although it’s been nice out, so maybe just a vest. I don’t know, let me call my husband…”Â

This post is the post that got me absolutely hooked on her blog; I could NOT stop laughing! And when I went and read it again just now, I still laughed out loud! If you don’t laugh at this, you are obviouslyÂ dead inside.
This post cracked me up because I had justÂ seen this banana thing on Pinterest recently… so when The Bloggess posted her take, I had to try out this trick:
Alright… you know you want to try it now. Off you go!
