Martha Stewart's Blogging Show



As many of you know, I was supposed to go to Martha's Blogger show today, but at the last minute, I decided not to go.

I read this girl's comments on Yelp.com. She was in the KNITTING show audience, and said it was awful. She said she had to wait around all a.m., they were militant, too many rules, couldn't get up to pee, what you can wear, what you can't, no white blouses, no micro mini skirts (I guess that leaves me out!). "Wear trendy jeans or boots......blah blah blah", the emails kept saying.

I would've had to take the 7:20 a.m. train into the city and I look terrible in the morning. With all these things factored in (especially not being able to get up and go to the bathroom), I changed my mind! I have jet lag anyway!

And does MARTHA really need any MORE publicity?

Well, now I am pissed. I see all the great prizes the audience received this a.m., and that wireless HP printer is fantastic! (How do you carry that back home on the train?). They had that guy Perez Hilton on, and that terrific blogger Smitten Kitchen, she gets like a 1000 hits an hour.........

OK, now I'm thinking I should've gone to the show, after reading all of your posts on the big event, and sorry I didn't get to meet all of the nice people from Jersey Biters and other people who emailed me. Oh well, c'est la vie.

It was a lot of fun...sorry we missed you. I had to leave my house at 5:30am. They are shipping the printers to us...yippee! I would have no room to carry it as I had to bring home a bag of bagels!

Wow, I'm sad that you didn't go. How did people get invited anyway? (I'm also sad I wasn't invited!)

I, too, am intrigued how everyone was chosen! How cool! If I couldn't use the restroom, I'd have bailed out, too!! Ugh! That would have been fun to meet the other fellow bloggers and to get the cool prizes, though. I tivo'd it, but have yet to see it.

Your trip to Paris looked amazing! You two are a gorgeous couple!

Bummer you didn't go. She ended up featuring a friend of mine who does Cute Overload which was fun.

awww, it was so fun! You should have come! I was freaking out about how I was going to get the printer home with me on my flight that afternoon! luckily they are mailing them- whew! I would have had to fedex it to myself or something! haha

Oh well, Theres always next time!
I think it would have been fun to meet the other bloggers and get the printer of course, but dictating what you wear and the bathroom thing is a bit much! Martha's so anal!!!
