Hai. I’m Leslie

#Life#This one time? At BlogHer?

I’ve been blogging for five years. Many of the original archives are gone or stored away but a long long time ago, back when Leo and Megan were on a fab show “The Screen Savers”, I started a blawg.

Five years later, I helped code Megan’s Typepad site and Leo and Megan both answered a question of mine on JumpingMonkeys Podcast. Starstruck much? Youbet.

With so much history packed in to a 5MB MySQL database here, some of who I am slowly leaked out in various posts. Sure, an about page is helpful, but here is what you need to know if you happen to run in to me in, say, San Fransisco.

1. I obsessively think I’m pregnant, even if I have not had actual, you know, S-E-X. 
2. I once peed on a used pregnancy test. Yes, I kept my first positive pregnancy test from my daughter in February 2004. Yes, I freaked my shit out with a six month old daughter. No, I do not have it anymore.
3. I’m a clutz. (Watch your drinks around me…)
4. I streak orange.
5. I really really really don’t want another baby.
6. I fart when I’m nervous.
7. I randomly yell things like “I WILL LICK YOU” and then make stickers out of it.
8. I’m a web programming nerd. And I like it.

Which is why I did the following:

1. Peed on a pregnancy test (new, yes I checked) before I start drinking at BlogHer. (Yaknow, I’m late, yaddyyaddy, and why not? I pee on things. What-can-I-say.)
2. Get a professional spray tan (which I still managed to totally fuck up).
3. Stay up late the night before placing my “business card” stickers on condoms.
4. Stock up on Bean-O.
5. Launched our new business the night before BlogHer.
5. Promise myself I will politely introduce myself before tripping, falling, and smacking various drinks out of people’s hands.

Hai. I’m Leslie. It’s nice to meet you.

What is that you’re drinking?

my card

**updated to add **
I literally spilled a record THREE DRINKS at Guy’s House. Two within three minutes on Laura. I only had one drink spilled on me by my favorite blog-writer-hero Rachel. I was honored.

So much more to update. Like singing in the men’s bathroom with Y and Jenny The Bloggess and OH MY GOD I LOVE THESE PEOPLE AND I WILL SAY THIS A LOT. Because deargod. Awesome. Womenz. Squeeee!! Too many to link to.


  1. Don’t forget that you also went to high school with Leo’s Producer for Screen Savers and Josh even worked for your dad while getting his AA Degree.

    Small world

  2. Aww!!  Sorry I am going to miss you while you’re in Cali… but a normally 90 minute car trip with a 3 month old easily turns into a 4 hour car trip, ya know? Unless you wanna drive down my way. LOL!  Have fun @ BlogHer!! MUAH!!

  5. Well!  I guess I should be glad we met in the espresso line BEFORE we got our drinks!  : D

    Fun to meet you - this looks like a great place to visit.

    You flashed a boobie to get on Alltop?  Geeze, if I did that they would shut down the site.  Trust me, it would not be pretty!

  7. I’ll bet Jenny is just as AWESOME as I imagine! I’m so jealous.  I think I would HAVE to hug her incessantly and then lick her. She’s just made of teh awesome.  And who else?  WHO ELSE?  I must live vicariously!

  8. Love the blog.  I’ve been lurking for a while now and decided to finally step out of the shadows.  And damn ~ that BlogHer thing sounded fun.  Maybe next year!
