I'm leaving for Washington DC in a couple of hours. I have no idea what my blogging capabilities will be this weekend because, despite the fact that the whole weekend will be dedicated to blogging, I remain possibly the only milblogger who doesn't own a laptop. But I'm sure I will return with stories and photos.

CaliValleyGirl said she's been having a hard time explaining to non-internet-obsessed people what the Milblogs Conference exactly is. She said she told them to imagine a Beanie Babies collectors convention, a gathering of folks with an esoteric hobby. I say it feels like a high school reunion of people you didn't go to high school with. Either way, I expect it to be awesome.

If you're so inclined, you can find info on the webcast and liveblogging here.

Sarah, have a great time! I wish I could go but the timing just isn't right. Maybe next year!

Do we need to start a "buy Sarah a laptop" fund?

I heard you were on the live feed, but I missed you! Have a great time.

A "Beanie Babies convention"!!!! Yuck. I like the "high school reunion" analogy much better. That hit it. You were great on your panel.
