I’ll meet you in St. Louis!

First off, I want to thank you all for your kind comments on yesterday’s post. I am so lucky to have such awesome readers and I am grateful for each and every one of you. Not only do you use your precious time to read this little blog of mine, you are supportive during bad times in my life. It makes me feel like a million bucks to have so many awesome Internet friends. (How creepy does that sound?)

Tomorrow (Wednesday), I’ll be hopping a plane to St. Louis for FinCon. I’m super excited, but also a ball of nerves. If you see me standing in a corner alone, please come rescue me from my own awkwardness. You can’t miss me, I look kinda like this:

I should actually be okay. I know these three lovely ladies IRL, I have an awesome group of fellow Pink Ladies to hang out with (On Fridays, we wear pink), and my economag buds are pretty much obligated to talk to me. Not to mention the countless other people I can’t wait to meet/fangirl over. Question: how nerdy is it to hold PF bloggers at celebrity status? Answer: super nerdy.

I can’t wait to meet all of you fab people. For anyone not attending this year, I’ll be recapping the trip next week. It won’t be the same, but feel free to live vicariously through me.

Oh, in case you literally have nothing better to do, feel free to vote for me for People’s Choice for the Plutus Awards. I don’t have a chance in hell, but it would be nice anyways. Apparently, a backpack of swag is at stake.

I better go pack now. From what I hear, I need to look somewhat presentable. I’m even wearing a dress Saturday night. Look at me, all fancy schmancy.
