What with the pre-registration period for Gnomedex closing in, I registered today. I'm not one to throw money away and Chris hasn't hinted at what the rate will be after the pre-reg period is over.
Anyway, we're going. Are you?
These were mostly taken with my phone camera. And mostly not by me. I didn't have ahold of my phone for a lot of the weekend. Yay for having 2000 minutes.
Don't bitch about the photo quality because Brad's phone takes better pics, but we only used mine. :p
We took a bunch on the phone and not so many with the camera. I have to find out where they got uploaded to though.
More links and stuff about the people I met, but for now, I'm pretty damn tired and want to go through my email quickly before I go to bed. Unlike most of the people we hung around with, I was computer-less but was able to borrow :Brad: and :adi:'s laptops so I could take a peek at my email and look at a few blogs. I also got on IM a few times from my phone, but that was also a popular device to play with (and a bit of a pain to IM with) so I didn't spend a ton of time on it either (though we called :A: a zillion times!).
Oh, and next time, I'm not going to pick a flight that leaves so long after checkout. Ugh!
Update: My suitcase was searched after we checked it. Interesting.
The animals are dropped off at their respective places (thanks, Brad!). The laundry is done. The house is relatively tidy. Someone (thanks, Gina!) is going to feed the fish and check our mail for us. Music CDs are burned. The new Evanovich book is on my nightstand (and will be packed in the morning). Our flights are still scheduled (leaving at 12:40pm, not 11:something like I thought originally). Directions are printed. The camera is packed so I'll do my best to take a ton of pictures. Brad has his laptop so I'll be able to upload them when I need to. No puppy means I get to sleep in. As much as I miss Peri, I won't miss our 4:30 or 5am morning potty break.
All kinds of fun people to meet tomorrow. Lots of relaxing to be done. I can't wait!
Monday: 4 meetings. Appointment after work.
Tuesday: Full day (or as much time as it takes) of training with a co-worker. Appointment after work. Water only after 7:30pm.
Wednesday: Fasting blood work at 7:30am. 2 meetings (one is from 4:45-5pm). Allergy shot in the afternoon. Nail appointment after work. Packing. Brad drops the cats off to be boarded while we're gone. And we have to drop the puppy off at a friend's house (he offered to watch Peri) - this might be a Brad-task too.
Thursday - Sunday: Des Moines for socializing, drinking and geeky stuff. That's assuming I survive Mon-Wed!
