Aye-yi-yi. Unlike 11 September, 11 October was not a particularly fascinating day in my life. I am away, managing a conference, you see. And while I am in what I am sure is a lovely setting – San Jose, California – I do not exactly get to experience it. For those of you who seem to think that I live a very glamorous life, jet-setting to distant locales on my employer’s dime, today you will get a taste of exactly how exciting it is to get up at 5:00 am and sit at a registration desk all day long. Whee.
And that is pretty much the sum total of my day. Boring, huh. There were other moments of absolute insanity where I was charging up and down the steps between the first and second floors to work with both sets of speakers and replenish our handout book supplies, running around with memory sticks trying to get presentations onto the right computers, changing signs so they were correct, handing out badges and handout books, etc., but those times are way too busy for me to take photos. I did also have dinner – in the hotel restaurant – and it was delicious, but I was with my boss and a Board member and I would have felt really silly pulling out my camera to photograph my meal, so I didn’t. I was in bed by 9:00 pm. Exciting!
