Well, it’s been a busy week, what with the traveling and the conference sessions and the working out in the hotel gym, and the torrential rains, and the poster sessions, and the complementary beverages at the poster sessions, and the additional beverages at dinner, and the wondering if the new storm moving in is going to be a problem with going on the cruise, and the hotel room TV channel selection, and the uncertainty as to who, if anyone will still be employing me after next week, and the very limited number of outfits I have to wear here, due to having packed the small suitcase because I don’t trust Virgin America not to take away the other one and charge me twenty dollars. Also, I didn’t even pack these shoes, because the pants they were supposed to go with shrank rather dramatically in the wash, so I didn’t have to get them hemmed, which is all well and good, but I also do not, technically, fit in them now, which is not well or good, so I only have skirts. Also jeans, but I haven’t been wearing them, because I am attempting to appear Professional, which would probably be going a lot better if it weren’t for all the Beverages.
(I do actually have a couple of very nice pairs of shoes with me, but I don’t have a picture of them so I am just going to have leave you in suspense.)
