Whilst I'd been whistling with the birds, on my bike in the Hamptons, Katrina and her hubby ('Mr Chambo', for literary embellishment of this story ..... and others to come) had been working on becoming slick NYC locals, in the mere 48 hours they'd been here. Ask them anything and they'll tell you! Number of police in the NYPD? ... 35,000, Katrina blurts out. How much does it cost to have a billboard on that tower in Times Square? 1 million a month, says Mr Chambo proudly....."....and it's 'M&M World', not the M&M shop, he corrects me with disgust. Being such locals, they took me to their favourite pizza restaurant, 'Johns' on 44th? .... I'll be corrected if I'm wrong. Big statement coming......they were the best pizzas I have ever eaten...and my fellow 'locals' agreed. The pizzas were the size of car wheels .....so of course we ordered two and laughed when they were served...as if we could eat all that!!! We did. With one piece to spare.
Yeah, the President addressed us. Blogging is big here, even the President's wife blogs!So we're in the thick of Blogher now, with one more day to go. I don't know how to explain it......hmmm, we're miles behind in Oz? The panel presentations are slick and professional and loaded with content. The panellists are women with careers in finance and technology. They speak so eloquently and with such confidence. Katrina and I could not get our notes down fast enough and kept looking at each other wide eyed. So this is what it is like in the real world!!!!! I want to be a blogger!!!!! A real one!!!!!
An impromptu Martha!
Now I'd love to chat more but it will have to wait, as I am heading off to day two of Blogher. Will be back with more tomorrow. I went on a night double decker bus tour with The Chambos last night and slept so well after it, I actually slept in this morning! Unheard of.
