Here's what I hate: when bloggers who haven't posted in a long time reappear and say, Oh, I'm so sorry I haven't been around! You must have missed me! I've been busy! I've been traveling! I've been working on my book! Those people are annoying. On a scale of one to annoying, they're so far over on the annoying side that the scale breaks, and the only place that will take it back without a receipt is Bed, Bath & Beyond.
I have no clue how that store stays in business.
So I'm not sorry I haven't been around (lie) and it's not for any of the reasons listed above (blatant, bald-faced, 100% lie).
I wasn't in Seattle (lie) and I didn't spend my time taking pictures of pie and cookies (lielielie).
Also, one of the women, whose name may or may not be Kristina, did not bring a jar of cherries steeped in Moonshine (lie). Let the record show that Moonshine cherries should not be fed to infants under the age of one, nor to infants over the age of one.
I know from past conference-themed posts I've done that no one really cares who I meet, so I won't waste your time (Joy, Dana, Kristina, Tracy, Denise). Whatever you do, don't check out their sites. Especially Dana's. DO NOT CLICK OVER TO DANA'S SITE! Don't do it! She only put me up for 2 nights, fed me pie, washed my dishes, drove me to and from the airport, and bought me lunch. (I had a halibut sandwich.) The woman needs a serious lesson in proper etiquette, because that type of selfish behavior just blows. Oh, and she lent me a belt.
Like that was hard.
As for the content of the International Food Bloggers Conference (which I will not link to), that will come out here in dribs and drabs, but as I've clearly wasted enough of your time for one day, I'd better go and find new people to annoy.
