Infiltrating VidCon...Just for You!

So all you good followers are probably anxiously awaiting this magnificent blog post I promised you. To that I say, don't you have a life?

Nevertheless, here it is, the reason why we went to LA in the first place. Sure, we went to have fun and explore, but there was a reason that started it all. We just don't pack up and head to LA for no reason.

Look! It's a Tesla Coil! But that's not the point. You see, our trip centered around a visit to VidCon. Yes. VidCon. A blogger went to a YouTube conference. Do you feel betrayed? Because it would be totally awesome if you did.

So why did I, a super-awesome blogger, decide to spend my weekend keeping company with those low-down vloggers?

I honestly don't know. It was Pat's idea, really. I just went along for the ride. I mean, who would willingly spend so much time with nerds like that?

I mean, look at them, with their cameras in the air. Filming. Really?! Filming? Don't they all know that blogging is the wave of the future? Don't they know that only the uber nerds use their cameras to make videos? It's all about the pictures and the words, ya'll.

Why do I keep saying ya'll? Maybe I caught something from one of those YouTubers. Note to self: schedule doctor's appointment to get that checked out.

I really was the life of the party. Everybody wanted to get a picture with the world-famous blogger of Awesome Wordage. Like this famous (if you can call YouTube celebrity fame. Psssh.) girl that got her start from the 'Tubes.

I know you don't recognize her, but that right there is Jessica Rose from LonelyGirl15 "fame." I'm sure you can tell by this picture that I'm all like, "'sup. I'm wearing brown shorts because I'm awesome." And she's all like, "OMG, it's totally that chick that made that blog post about towels!!!!!!1" Because that's exactly what happened. And check the Rockstar product placement, too.  Yeah, I'm totally (not) sponsored.

And then this guy practically attacked me with what is obviously extreme excitement from meeting his favorite person in the world. You know it.

Seriously folks, this place was just a giant nerd fest. I will never understand why people would want to share things about themselves on the internet. Weirdos.

Excuses and Other Fun Things

Why hello, Land of Blog. It's nice to finally see you again. I've been...around. Sorry I haven't called. I lost your number in a freak...boating...accident.....

Ohhhkay. Moving on. I feel like I need to explain why I haven't been posting much lately. And yes, Luna's blogs count because, if you didn't know already, I'm the one who really writes those.

...What? Stop looking at me like I've just told you that Santa Claus doesn't exis--oooh. Oops. I just...well, you looked smar--I mean...I...thought you knew.

Well. This is going well, isn't it?

Okay...I guess the best way to tell you this is to just blurt it out. I....wentonvacationanddidn'ttellyou! I'm so sorry! I was thinking about you the whole time, I swear!

You see, we were getting ready to leave for Los Angeles, and I told Pat, "I should probably let my blog know where we're going so it doesn't worry." You know, because my whole 7 followers would frantically check their blogger dashboard every minute while sobbing uncontrollably because I haven't posted anything new in two weeks. I mean, how dare I abandon you like that, right?

...Heh. You can put the pitchfork and microwave down now. I promise I'll be good from now on. It's all Pat's fault, really, because do you know what he said to that? "Screw 'em! They're just a bunch of no-good dirty nerds anyway! I hate nerds more than I hate people who look like Barbara Walters!" And let me tell y'all, he really despises people who look like Barbara Walters (but he loves Barbara Walters more than ice cream loves fudge, which is a lot. Obviously). It's like some strange form of racism--like BabaWawaism. Or something.

So this is just an update to tell you that there's another, better update coming soon. One with pictures and a real honest-to-God point. I know you're so excited that you might pee your pants, but you're going to have to strap on your Depends because I don't know when this new-and-improved post is coming.

...Don't look at me like that! I'm busy, yo!
