I’m Kind of a Big Deal:

obligatory “#BiSC was so fucking awesome” post

I attended the 3rd annual Bloggers in Sin City meetup over the weekend. If you follow me on twitter, you probably already know that. My last 88 tweets (yes, I counted) have been, in some way, shape or form, professing my love for the 50+ other bloggers who attended with me. Or complaining about how much my feet hurt. We can’t keep it ALL positive up in here, you know.

I learned several things over the weekend.

Canada doesn’t have Target.

PURE nightclub will let you check you shoes and walk around barefoot. (right, jenn?)

In vegas, 12 oz. of red bull costs $8. Club sandwiches are $15. MINI bottles of water are $9. You get the drift — it’s fucking expensive as shit.

Lounging in the sun is so much more fun when you have a VIP area or a cabana.

But above all of that, the #1 thing I learned is that bloggers are really great people…. who live way too far away. I’ve met so many amazing folks through the internet, and this weekend was no exception. If you ever have a chance to attend BiSC, or any blogger meetup for that matter, DO IT. Even if you have to go alone. I’m not saying that you won’t end up meeting a blogger who sucks — it happens. But if you are lucky enough to meet 100 bloggers in your lifetime, the other 99 people you meet will be AWESOME.

Oh and one more thing I learned. Nicole is a saint. The weekend was impeccably organized for optimum fun and we owe all of that to her.

Enough schmoopy mcshoomp and cheesey mccheesiness. I was going to post a ton of pictures, but this video Apocalypstick compiled captures how much freaking fun the weekend was in just a few minutes.

Start saving your money for next year. You don’t want to miss it.

    Looks like a ton of fun. I remember going to Vegas back in May my boyfriend bought a $13 Guinness. We did find a few cheaper places off the strip, but pretty much everything in a big casino was overpriced.

    That’s AWESOME that the club let you guys check your shoes. Love it.

    SO amazing to meet you, and thank you for being the first blogger I ever met in person!

    News to me that you can check your shoes. If I had known I would have been wearing some rediculous heels. Also, the reality is starting to sink in that I don’t get to go to BiSC and have blogger fun every weekend, and that’s a huge fucking bummer. Miss you (and everyone), now get your booty to SF pronto.

    We need to just all start a country where all the bloggers telecommute to their old jobs but gather in a physical location. Too far away is right!

    Nothing like a good ol’ fashioned shoe check. Looks like an awesome time!

    Also, Canada is in the process of getting Target! And, because all Canadians are French, we’ll undoubtedly refer to it as “tar-jay” without irony.

    It’s true. We don’t have Target!

    If you’re ever in Target and notice someone who looks very wide-eyed and a little *TOO* excited to be there you’ve witnessed a CANADIAN SPOTTING.

    Um, so yeah my life blows. And no, Canada does not have Target but we’re supposed to get it by the end of the year. Score! Although not where I live. We won’t get it where I live until I’m too old to know or care what Target is. Or I know but have to ride one of those motorized scooters while I shop for Tena pads and Polident.

    So yeah, this looks like a lot of fun…sniffle. I live in Moose Jaw. True story. Vegas is like another world. Mark my words, someday I will come.

    On a scooter.
