Back to Where I Once Belonged

Back home in the gloomy, half-melted DC metro area. Ah, it's good to be home. My convention was quite a success -- I think we have a lot of deals set up for the coming year and it's good to reconnect with all the major players in the industry. Plus, I got to hear Tom Brokaw and Tony Blair speak!! Awesome.

The plane ride home was great, I slept from takeoff through landing. Definitely needed as the conference is a four-day marathon of schmoozing, glad handing and BS'ing. The only thing that marred the trip home was MOLD on the sandwich bought in the Ft. Lauderdale airport. Gross!

Oh, and did I mention that I suspect there were bedbugs in my hotel room?! I have bites on my hands, arms and back. Shudder. Guess what I lectured on to my company's conference last year? That's right.

Many heartfelt thanks to all of you who have commented recently. I truly appreciate your comments and support. It helps to know that y'all are out there rooting for me, even though my life sometimes seems like a bad episode of 90210. :)

Yay for the successful conference, the upcoming deals, the cool speakers, and sleeping on the plane.

Boo on the mold and the bedbugs. Ick, ick, double ick.

That does sound like an interesting conference. I've heard that there has been a bed bug epidemic lately and in really good hotels too.

YUCK mold and bedbugs... that's Not Cool!

OMG - quick- wash EVERYTHING you took in hot, hot water. We had bedbugs in our house three years ago and it was like physical and psychological assault. They are a bitch to get rid of.

i hope it's not bedbugs...i got them traveling in the mid east. you'll know b/c they wake in the nite and start biting and make you itch like crazy.

That so sucks on the bedbugs. And that same thing happened to me a few months ago at the airport. Got a meal, since I knew there wasn't even the option to buy a snack on the plane, and when I opened it? Mold. I was livid and grossed out all at once.
