You shouldn't need to do any of this unless you have badly behaving plugins.

Use wp-load.php here instead of wp-blog-header.php


Here's what I use:

class MyClass {
	// ...
	public static function load_wp() {
		if (empty(self::$wp_path)) {
			throw new Exception('WordPress could not be loaded', 500);

		global $wp_the_query, $wp_query, $wp_rewrite, $wp;

		define('DISABLE_WP_CRON', true);
		require_once(self::$wp_path . '/wp-load.php');

The globals are required if loading through a function. There may be 
others as well depending on what plugins you have. (WP should really 
have that built in, rather than assuming it's in the global context.)

DISABLE_WP_CRON is for performance reasons; I don't want cron running on 
the site this lives on.
