Glowzilla

This was the post I had originally scheduled for today when I kinda went all mopey and sad about my Dad's upcoming operation. Today I've been madly rushing around trying to get tickets changed and whilst that hasn't happened yet, I'm still all systems go for Sydney - so I'm biting the bullet and posting it in the hopes that the Universe hears how much I need for things to work out right now.
___ . . . ___ . . . ___

I've been thinking for a while now if I should step out from behind the blog in order to increase my networkiness (new word for you, Mr Maquarie, you're welcome) at AusBlogCon.

I will be going up to the Bloggers who I haven't met but recognize from their photos and saying soMething like "Excuse me, are you Liz from Mumstrosity?" Actually, the starstruck groupie inside me will ensure it comes out more like "OMG OMG OMG! Are you LIZ!? From MumstrositY!? OMG OMG OMG I totally love you!" And if it's not I will go and hide under a table.
 
But without a photo on here, I am uNrecognizable. There will be no "Are you Glowless?" ...and I think I'm OK with thAt.

I feel safe here, behind My bloggy curtain. I feEl in control.

My protective shIeld is about to be shattered, so instead of plunging in to the deep end next Saturday, I'll take some baby stepS... I'll give you a sneak peek... a liTtle teaser...

The last time I was in Sydney, this is what happened; GLOWZILLA.


Consider yourself waRned, Sydney!


On a side note, I feel completely vulnerAble right now. Bare. Naked. ExposEd. And it's only half a photo. What the hell am I gonna do at AusBlogCon?

    Let me think here. The Sponsor t-shirt may be a dead giveaway (for those who have been paying attention!) as to your true identity. So with my (tiny) marketing cap on...if we go on the premise that ‘sex sells’ then maybe we could quickly hire a male model to strut around the conference wearing the shirt, flexing his biceps and generally giving everyone a good look...only the back of the shirts does say something about being a Mummy...

  5. Your are so cute! Love this, but not the first part about your dad & as I have not been on twitter today I'm clueless as to what's happened. Are you ok??

  8. You're on to something here FEM... I don't think anyone would be looking at the shirt long enough to realize it said Mummy on the back... they'd be looking slightly lower I'm sure ;)

  9. It's an old photo... hehehe. Although I don't think I look very different now.

  10. OK I promise to remove one OMG to stop you fainting.

  11. Yep, hoping it all work out. My Dad's heart has chosen a really inconvenient time to give up.

  12. I'm pretty sure you'll be talked about, Tork. I was really close to saying Torked about, you know, for the cheap laugh.

  13. So glad you have decided to go. I can't imagine you being all nervous, and lost for words!

  14. Oooh, love the semi unveiling of Ms Glow! Everyone will adore you at Aus Blog Con - I for one cant wait to meet you!

  15. This is the start of big things for you! Anyone prepared to go up and say hi and 'out' themselves is awesome in my books. I'm still grappling with the flashes I'm getting, of me hiding under a table and hoping nobody notices my sizeable bottom poking out.
