DPCON12 in (rambling) words and (bad) pictures

I am utterly exhausted. Four events in four days is a busy schedule for anyone, throw in an impromptu guided walking tour of the best coffee and vodka bars in Chapel Street, a hell of a lot of wine and a three hour time difference and it leads to one very tired, very emotional Glow. And by that I do, obviously, mean terribly hungover.

I have enjoyed every minute; I loved the planning, the panels, the expo hall, the My Blog, My Story speakers, the prizes (yes, particularly the one I demanded from Woogsworld and Magneto Bold Too as penance), the last minute 'faaaaaaark this is really happening' feelings, the Mother Tongue speakers, the dancing... but most of all I loved meeting so many new people and adored catching up with my friends in the flesh and giving them squeezes, kisses and adoring looks when they weren't paying attention.

I am about to crash the way all good emotionally unstable people do after being part of such a massive event. I need a bex and a lie down, or, quite possibly, a straightjacket. I hope I can get it in black because white really isn't my colour, or lack of colour, or whatever. It's been bloody brilliant and I've been honored to be part of an amazing team of hard working women that made it happen.





P.S. The post I read during The Mother Tongue is here

P.P.S. If you have a photo of your Glow Job stamp send it to me!!!

P.P.P.S. Totally copied Magneto Bold Too with the P.S.ing

  7. Ridiculously excited to make the vlog wall of fame. Or possibly shame. It's up for negotiation.

    You were so funny yesterday morning at brekky.

    Loved spending little snips of time with you - your hugs are sensational.

  13. Legend, you are. You have such a gorgeous light in you Glow- especially when you're wearing sunnies indoors and having to deal with the waft of chicken sausages :p
    No, seriously, I was watching you (creeeeeeeeeepy!) and the adrenlin buzz and the lows and highs and... yeah. If I were you, right now I'd be a sobbing ball on Bunny's futon, scarfing pizza and watching Kevin Smith movies. I get it- a totally awesome time, but the overwhelm and the physical and emotional are kind of the price you have to pay for it :(
    Be nice to Glow for the next few days, please, Glow. She did a top job, she rocked, we are all so proud of her- she was funny and charismatic and organised and cheerful and a good sport and kept things running smooth and she still managed to give a lot of squishy hugs to everyone- and she deserves a massive gold star, possibly some chocolate and some TLC from you.. yes, you, Glow.
    OK. Evidently, seeing as I am now actually talking to you as though there were actually two of you.... I think that tops answering yourself in terms of a leeeeeedle unstable. 
    I need to go to sleeeeeeeeeep. Going to stop typing..... now.
    :p xxxxxxx

    My Glow Job finally wore off this morning and I'd like another one next time I see you. But as stated at the airport, no matter how drunk I get, I won't pash you. Yer safe with me;)
    I was the last one off the bloody plane and thanks to the Krispy Kremes I finally made it home to Fussy Farm at 1am. It was a great conference and I really appreciate all the effort the team and attendees put into it!

  15. Oh Glow, it was an honor and a privilege to party with you, honestly, you did the most amazing job at the conference! I am feeling a bit sad tonight, thrilled to be home with my beautiful girls and exhausted husband, but missing my #DPCON12 buddies a LOT! Xx

  23. Ah, Glowy, I got another hangover just by watching the video! Xx

  24. Can't believe I've only just seen this.  It's awesome. There's a total side business for you in making montagey slideshowy techy stuffs.  You may need to find a more appropriate description though, as that probably wouldn't fit on your standard sized business card.  It was indeed awesome, and your hair was as awesome as I have talked it up to be.  So were you. Mwah's all round xxx
