I survived the day after Blogger Bash

Posted by Richard on August 30, 2008

RMBB5000Rocky Mountain Blogger Bash 5000, the Donkeys Over Denver edition, was a smashing success. Congrats and thanks to Mr. Lady and Zombyboy for putting together a fantastic event. Thanks to Lijit.com, You2Gov.com, and Cre8Buzz.com for their sponsorship (which means buying us drinks and food). And thanks to Trios Enoteca for treating us so well and being such a great venue.

It was almost 2 AM and most of the chairs were up on the tables when Off Colfax and I stumbled out of there and up the 16th Street Mall, he heading for the #15 bus and I for the light rail. The 2 AM train was standing room only!

So here's where the one big negative about RMBB 5000 reared its ugly head: to fit the DNCC schedule, it was on a Thursday. That meant going to work in the morning. Later the same morning, that is. 

It was about 3:30 when I hit the sack, wisely deciding against the usual 6 AM alarm. Even the 7 AM alarm required three or four swipes at the snooze button. Thanks to Life Extension Foundation's Anti-Alcohol Antioxidants, I was spared a hangover. (Have I mentioned what a great product that is, and what a fine organization LEF is?) But I'm just way too old to get by on less than four hours' sleep. 

So the workday kind of sucked. And when I got home this evening, a three-hour nap seemed like a great substitute for supper. 

(Oh, yeah — Obama gave a great speech. The substantive policy content totally sucked, but he sure did deliver it! And the many out-of-town lefty bloggers in attendance practically orgasmed right there on the back room floor.)
