wine on the keyboard

I Won, I Won

by Kay~Kacey on 6/17/2008

First off, I never win anything.

So imagine my surprise when I WON in a Blogher Ad contest. The contest was sponsored by Hakia I won a 3 day conference fee pass to the Blogher Conference in San Fransisco next month! (I need a happy dance smilie, don’t I?) It just so happens that SuperGuy was already off of work that Thursday/Friday. So he’s going to take off Wednesday too, and off we go. We’re trying to work flights out on frequent flier mile tickets too.

I'm Geeking Out at BlogHer 08

Wow, 3 days of being surrounded by bloggers!! What fun! I can’t WAIT. We’re going a few days early to sightsee. I haven’t been to San Fransisco since I was in 8th grade. Let’s just say that’s a LONG time ago!! SuperGuy hasn’t been in 20 years. So we’re really looking forward to the trip.

Wait, what is Hakia, you say? Well, it’s a new search engine. Clean, sleek, fast. Here, go check it out. Okay, I admit, I’m a little upset my blog doesn’t come up first when you put in wine on the keyboard, but I’ll adjust 😉 I’m sure it has something to do from moving from a subdomain on another site, to a new server with wineonthekeyboard as the primary domain. Right? Go check it out and see what you think of it. (and if you do, come back here and tell me what you think about it.)

I’m so excited!!

So, yes, we’re headed out on another “road trip”. Yes, I’ll be blogging the trip and the conference. You’d expect anything less of me? Any of you going to the conference?

Way to go, Kasey!
I’m doing a happy dance for you.
Have fun! Can’t wait to hear how it goes and how many bloggers you meet!
Will SG go to the conference with you? Or just hang out and wait for the night life?

SuperGuy is going on the trip, but won’t go to the conference stuff. I think he’ll eat his way across the city while I conference 🙄

Sweet! Enjoy your time on the left coast…

OMG! You are so lucky!

I checked out the search engine and it’s awesome. I even looked myself up!

It’s still so difficult to post with this damn satellite internet time out I’m still on. And I can’t get into your blog at home! So I must sneak it at work. Take care!

Since you’ll be out here in San Francisco, you must do the winery thing. Just about any place along the coast is full of wineries. The central coast is really going strong now; but Napa is so close to San Francisco. This will be a fun road trip to follow. Thanks for the enjoyment.
