Look out world- Bams and Sara are back in Reno together. Even the non-blogger Zena my decide to show up.

So, if you're in the area over Easter let us know. You need your own accommodations and we probably can't play much. But dang it if there is more than 1 blogger in a room it has to be a BC... right?

OK so how is it, my dearest blog lubbers, that someone who is sadly blogless, completely without readership, and totally analog, gets to sneak into blog camp, create a blog, immediately have an army of followers and then never posts again!!!!!!!!!!!!  I mean look at this woman, she can't even get her totally cool Blog Camp necklace on the right way round for the love of Pete!!!!  She seemed totally BC worthy at the time, fit right in with her point and shoot, laptop and Subaru, she even didn't mind being totally thrown into the side of a mountain by Sara our fearless (as it turned out) chauffeur.

So I ask you, what is to be done with Zena the unworriorlike imposter? Do we add her to the National Register of Fake Bloggers? Do we ask that the 9 comments she has on her first post be discommented on? I mean... who gets nine comments on their inaugural post?  I didn't, I know that... I barely get nine these days and I've been at this a whole six months now!!! Unbelievable, that's all I can say, unfreakinbeleivable. Bambi I hold you accountable for this wayward woman....what the heck can you say about Schmeck???????

Okay, who lost their rocks? Specifically, who lost them in my truck? There is a multi-colored (layered) and a round rock I found on the backseat of my car that weren't collected by me and, I suspicion, need to be mailed somewhere. xxxooo!

They are a special occasion

I had bought a bottle of champagne vodka back in February but didn't want to open it without company and end up wasting most of it (letting the bubbles out and all). So I saved it for a special occasion and what do you know? Blog Camp was indeed special! I'm so glad that all four of these ladies came to Reno for the weekend.

What I found most striking was that I felt like I knew all of these women already though their blogs, that they felt like friends, but that I didn't know any of the little details that every friend would know. I had gleaned so many important details and insights but not the small things that a face to face friendship would have told me. I am so glad that I could fill in the pieces and that these bright and fun women are now also part of my "real world" friends.

Lake Tahoe is the second deepest lake in the United States.....

....I'll let you figure out which lake is THE deepest......(anyone from Oreeegone here?)

One of the largest elements of Blog Camp is the photography and you cannot imagine the ways in which blog campers can make themselves bend, twist, contort and well, lay down to get their shot.......

Having such a plethora of photo opportunities was quite the prize for a day out on the beach at THE MOST BEAUTIFUL LAKE EVA'! (I might be partial)
But, not only was the lake posing for us, we had some other 'subjects' to focus on......

And, of course, getting ready for the JUMP SHOT, before we enlisted the help of a stranger (he was no stranger than we were...)

10 Things

1. Ali has a very colourful vocabulary (ex: Fukadoodledoo, there's snot on the window! It may be from one of the children!)

2. None of us gets anywhere on time but it's her fault, not mine.

3. We will break for refreshment (*someone* had a beer with her biscuits and gravy).

4. Random people will gladly take your picture if you smile and bat your eyes a little bit.

5. We are just like our blogs, but not... (though in a good way).

6. We are freaks and geeks (some of each and some are both).

7. Everyone loves Laura, our "other mother" (rxBambi's original mama).

8. Be careful what you ask for, you may get it quickly. (she did ask me to pull over but she said "I brought a change of sandals, but I should have brought a change of panties")

9. Moths and bees are cause for public screaming and inspire fear in the hearts of (some) stoic blog campers.

10. Eric does dishes too. Every Blog Camp should have an "Eric the Wonderful". Vikings. Who knew?

Our Sunday

We started the day with a little cat and mouse (the cat is named Pixel, BTW).

We played at Tahoe but mostly took pics of each other (this photo by Zena).

We had a very nice jump shot (with a random stranger's assistance). Left to right is AnOpenHeart, McGillicuty, rxBambi, Zena, and Sara.

And now we are relaxing with computers and beverages. Aahhhh...
