It was a really crazy hectic weekend for me. But hectic is good. I like being busy.
I had to go to Chicago for a web convention, sponsored by XBiz. I think the technical name for this show was “XBiz Chicago Summit 2011” . It is a very cryptic name!
This was not a fan/consumer convention; this was a convention where all the important people who work inside the Internet convene and figure out how to make all our websites better. It’s pretty cool! I actually have come to love these types of conventions. They really are a blast and I learn so many new things. I spoke on a panel about Marketing (which I don’t have a photo of) and I ate deep-dish pizza (which I do have a photo of!!!)
There are more pictures from the Xbiz convention HERE.
On Saturday evening, after all “business” was taken care of, I went out with some of the Chicago BurningAngel girls – who I adore. Azure, Veruca, Phoenix and Rizzo. I went to the bar called “Exit” – where they have the BurningAngel night every Tuesday. I have heard a lot about this bar; it was nice to finally see it. The place is kick-ass. The music was great, the crowd was great, and all the bartenders were awesome. If you live in Chicago, you should definitely go there.
Then on Sunday as soon as I got off the plane, I went to Jason Ellis‘ house. He was doing some stuff for his website he wanted me and Jessie Lee to be in. They were really funny bits where we had to give lap dances to really bad lap-dance songs, like “Who Let The Dogs Out” and “Foot Loose”. It was incredibly random, but I did it anyways. We shot this in front of a green screen, which will magically turn into a strip club after editing.
I got home around 8pm and fell right asleep. I didn’t even take my makeup off. I always take my makeup off! This must have meant I was incredibly tired. I woke up this morning at 10 am and felt really refreshed. I am ready for a new week.
… And that’s all!
