Pirate's Booty; or, Swag

Huzzah! my presentation went well! And I'm not joking when I say that someone uttered the phrase "belle of the ball" in my general direction. I think it is safe to say that the Ass Kicking Phase from "The many moods of presentations" won the day.

A long day in list form:
  • 4:30AM alarm
  • 6:15 AM flight (the airport is fantastically busy at 5:30AM... who knew?)
  • green room schmoooooozing
  • presentation with Boss v2.0
  • free lunch
  • conference riff-raff + fun updates
  • more schmoooooooozing + the exchange of business cards (very weird)
  • swag, in abundance
  • promise of more swag via mail
  • hanging out, consumption of free Naked juice, free wi-fi, airport avoidance
  • airport swag security issue: I had too much swag! had to carefully consolidate to be able to meet carry-on standards
  • home by 11:30PM
Phew. Now I'm quite tired. I had to get up relatively early today as well. Well, it was a normal wake-up time, but given my 19 hour day yesterday it felt extremely early.

You Da Man! I knew you could do it.
You have to admit you are in the corporate world grasshopper, and not academia. Sounds like an interesting time even if it was a long day. Have a good weekend and unwind.
