Andi gets here in a couple of hours, which means I have lasagna to make and a house to keep cleaning. Oh, and a dog to brush. Heather (from Hand-Crafted Comfort) and Ginger (from Sew Much Comfort) show up for dinner tomorrow. Then a friend from Germany and CaliValleyGirl arrive Friday. It's a hen party in the Grok house this weekend!
SpouseBUZZ Live should be great, as always. And if you can't make it to the live event, a very generous and cool company called Syncronicity Live is going to livestream the day. You can watch along from home! What a gift they've given us.
And so I'm off, to finish making the house look presentable and start dinner. Blogging might be limited, since my online friends will all be in my living room this weekend!

Look at AWTM, so composed and cool. Look at me, cheesing like a maniac. I can't believe this man talked to me repeatedly over the weekend. I look like a freak.
I'm such a stalker.

Thursday night at the Pajamas Media Party, when they gave away the weblog awards, all of a sudden there he was on stage. Too cool. AWTM and I started chasing him down for photos. He was really friendly and laughed at our antics.
This afternoon though, as I chased him around the expo hall, I think I began to get closer and closer to Crazy Town in his eyes. And then when I sat in on his podcasting seminar, and I've never done a podcast in my life, that was the height of silliness.
But I just think that man is so danged cool. I mean, he used the word "swell" and made a Calvin Coolidge joke. It doesn't get any better than that.
So I stalked the Instapundit. I'm such a nerd.
Yay, photo evidence!

Panel #1: What is a Milblog?
Panel #2: To Blog or Not to Blog: Milbloggers, DoD, and the Media
Panel #3: From the Front
Panel #4: Meanwhile, Back on the Homefront
I am sitting in the Blog World Expo keynote speech, liveblogging on a laptop.

I will join Andi, Some Soldier's Mom, ArmyWifeToddlerMom and ButterflyWife on Friday's milblogging panel called "Meanwhile, Back on the Homefront." It should be a good time!
I am hoping that I will have good connectivity at something called the "blog world expo," so I might not be out of the loop.
And I haven't gained any pregnancy weight yet, so if I can handle it, my baby and I will be hitting the buffet!

"not because it is easy, but because it is hard" quote
preservation of liberty and justice 300 george bush
Queen Gorgo's speech
Inspirational sayings for a husband who is deployed
donate stairs OR decks for servicemen coming home with an injured leg
"Every generation has its heroes. This one is no different"
always trying to explain to someone who doesn't think it is logical
And my favorite search:
A man who has nothing which he cares about more than he does about his personal safety is a miserable creature who has no chance of being free, unless made and kept so by the existing of better men than himself
Of course, I also loved this one:
"is he a terminator from the future"
