You know what's weird?

I swear I think I just had an entire month of PMS.  If this is what menopause is going to be like, I'm either going to need a lot of mood-altering drugs or some kind of weapon.  I have no idea why it started or why it ended.  Anyway, I feel better now.

I went to the conference and it was interesting.  I've never been to one before, and I was a bit taken aback at the amount of socializing and partying... none of which I went to.  I guess a lot of people see these things as a perk of their job, an opportunity for a vacation, a chance to get drunk with a co-worker.  I live here, so I just went to try to learn things.  I did, both about the specific program I use and also about the industry as a whole.

There was, unfortunately, no swag, other than this bag I'm holding up while making a cheesy face in the bathroom mirror.

Yay, a bag.  

The Dolphin hotel is so fancy that, even in the public restrooms, they fold the toilet paper into little points.  And the food was really good.

Loved the little desserts

With over 2,000 people attending, it was pretty impressive.

The conference was spread across three floors in a big wing of the hotel, so there was a lot of walking. And a fair amount of getting lost.
I was smart enough to wear comfy shoes, but I
saw a lot of women in torturous looking heels
I'm glad I went.  And I'm really glad that Greg encouraged me to ask to go, because when I mentioned it to him I actually had no intention of going.
