Just Ignore Those Subliminal Messages

I was accessing our financial situation. In a nutshell, it sucks. Bills, bills, and more bills. Only having one income for a family of five, in Jersey no less, isn't easy. My business isn't pulling in any extra money. I hate to close it down, I worked SO hard on it, but is it something I can keep holding on to?

SOME BIG COMPANY SEND ME TO BLOGHER '09! PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE!!

I've cracked down on our spending. I have organized myself and am concentrating on eliminating our debt. I'm hoping for a miracle. Okay, things aren't THAT bad. I just want to be debt free.

I NEED TO GO TO CHICAGO! PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE!!

Upon opening my eyes, I have had to rethink my plans for July. More specifically my trip to Chicago to attend Blogher '09. I'm on the fence. I keep going back and forth and can't seem to decide.

I'M BEGGING ON MY HANDS AND KNEES! PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE!!

I checked into a few things. Airfare = $318.00. Hotel for 3 nights, plus charges and taxes = $688.94. Blogher Conference Pass, plus fee = $202.95. That's a minimum of $1,209.89, plus all of the other non-essentials.

I WILL PINK PUFFY HEART YOU FOREVER! PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE!!

That's a hunk of change. Can I justify spending that? I'm not sure.

I SO WANT TO STALK MEET THOSE AWESOME A-LIST BLOGGERS! PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE!!

Mr. Schmitty is on board. He knows how badly I want to go this year. He wants me to go and have a good time because I don't do much for myself. Lately, I seem to be doing for everyone else and haven't gotten a moment's peace.

I NEED TO GET AWAY FROM MY FAMILY I NEED A MOMMY BREAK! PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE!!

So, what's a girl to do?

BEG, PLEAD, KISS FEET? PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE!!

I was thinking of pimping myself out.....see if any companies wanted to sponsor a D-List blogger. I swear I would be forever grateful. I'd wear clothing, hats, underwear, anything with your logo on it! I'd talk you up at the cocktail parties. Just make sure your name is easy to pronounce because, well, it's a cocktail party and I don't want to slur your name. And don't they say that SEX sells? I mean c'mon, you just can't get any SEXier than this:


DON'T YOU WISH YOUR BLOGGER WAS HOT LIKE ME?
Send me to BlogHer'09!!
PLEASE!!

Megryansmom said...

That was hilarious. If you get 2 sponsers think of me please. I'm not sure I can go either :( Being poor but beautiful sucks.

Dawn said...

You are FUNNY!!! I hope this works for you! :)

Jill said...

Does that hotel bill figure in a roommate? Cuz if you're looking for one, I'm strangely open to the idea of sharing a small space with a virtual stranger :-)

The Mom said...

LOL, let me know if that trick works, I'll try it!

I'm jealous of your thin neck, i'm a total linebacker. ;(

Queen-Size funny bone said...

I think if you rock this look for a while some sponsor will have to hook you up! Hilarious!

I'm hanging around here now! (and not because of your outfit..I'm not a weirdo!)lol!

Laura said...

Like you, I sooooo want to go - but airfare, hotel and all - it is sooooo much money - but I would SOOOOOO love to meet all my bloggy-world friends....it is a tough call.

Good luck....please ask all potential sponsers if they have a Canadian branch to sponsor me!!!

Awesome!

Lisa said...

Oh my gosh, I LOVE that little image. Hysterical.

I know what you mean with bills and BlogHer and such. Am in St.L and could drive but its money we don't really have! But I'd really love to go...

Hope, hope HOPE you get to go.

Stacie said...

I have something for you on my blog. :)

Midwest Mommy said...

The hubs gave me the go ahead to go (it would be driving distance for me/no hotel needed) but I just can't spend the money. I feel the stay at home mom guilt in that I know I could use the money for something for the kids. I justified not going by saying I could just google what I need to know, lol!

♥georgie♥ said...

OMGosh LMAO!!!! This was super creative and you are sooo not on the D list

Baloney said...

LOL. If you are on the D-List - where does that put me? Ouch!
Hope you get to go.
