I've been doing errands around my place trying to avoid packing for TechEd.
I've only been removed from the 100% humidity lifestyle for about a year, but you
quickly forget what is like to walk out of the shower and never completely dry-off.
I'm not particularly looking forward to that feeling again.
BUT I am looking forward to TechEd. This will be my first Microsoft
Conference and I've been told to take in all its glory. I don't have to speak
at this one so I get the best of all worlds; check out sessions, the booths, community
room, and customers. Should be an amazing learning experience and I'm excited
to see what all the hype is about.
A funny story about this hotel
disaster that is being talked about. I was not planning on attending TechEd
until about 7 days ago. I knew there wasn't a chance that I could get a hotel
room. The Hyatt was booked. So was the Adolphus. The Le Meridien.
The Shearton. So I called the Adams Mark on a whim because it seemed close by.
They had rooms, score one for me, I'm not sleeping on the street.
As it turns out my *DUMB* luck turned out to be pretty good. I hear lots of complaning about
lousy staff, no highspeed at the Hyatt. Why would they make Hyatt the speaker
hotel without HIGH SPEED? I mean come on... I almost expect high speed internet
everywhere now, especially a hotel for TECHED, emphasis on TECH. It is funny
isn't it? Well, at least I know I can get work done from the hotel room in between
the conference and the parties.
Ahh teched, here I come. I should probably pack now. See ya'll in
Dallas. Oh I'm slipping back already.
