A piece of information that made me feel better.

Macromedia finally put the infonetwork back up, and I now have a piece of information that has been eluding me for just over a week. This made me happy. It's sad it made me happy, but it did. … [Read more...]

I’m home

So, I'm back at the house... Still stealing bandwith from one of my neighbours on the rented laptoo. I'm too tired to write now so I'm going to bed. You know, maybe I need to learn how to let things go. I hope I can. … [Read more...]

MAX 2004 - Day 5

Today I was tired. Really tired. I've not stayed up so late in a long time. However, I decided that this was the day to go to the yarn store. I had picked three to look at, but decided after reading reviews at fiberphile, that I would only go to one. The Garden District Needleworks. It was a great store. Lots of more inexpensive yarns than at my local yarn store. I ended up getting almost $100 worth of yarn. I bought Reynolds Lopi Light, which I've heard about but never seen, Cascade … [Read more...]

MAX 2004 - Day 4 continued…

Wednesday night at Max was Mardi Gras World. The shuttle bus started taking us over at 7:30. The activities/event wasn't that different than the event they had in Washington DC, when I went with Dan all those years ago. They had people doing caricatures, tarot card and palm readers, psychics and the like. There were appetizers, and more alcohol than I've seen in a long time. Ok, well, than I've seen since the welcome reception. Most people were having a good time, but I think both Karen … [Read more...]

MAX2004 - Day 4

Yesterday was day three. I think I'm exausted. Decided to go to general session today. HATED IT. What a waste of time. The sessions were pretty good today. I'm in Ben Forta's class from 4 - 5:30. Now, that should be good. Flirted with the bar tender at the hotel last night. People waiting for machine, can't talk about it. Damn. … [Read more...]

MAX 2004 - Day 3 finalized.

Dinner Tuesday night was awesome. I met up with my friend Dan from Aspect and his wife Jeanette. I had been looking forward to seeing him for weeks. I knew his would be the only friendly face I would see. We ended up going to Mulate's. I had red beans and rice, ice tea and chocolate carmel cheesecake with pecans for dessert. I, my friends, am a very lucky girl. My food was excellent, and so was the company. Honestly, I like red beans and rice. I'm going to have to figure out how to make … [Read more...]

MAX2004 - Day 3 Continued

The nice man around the computers got me connected to a cable. Now I can blog on my own machine! YEAH! Too bad I forgot my power supply. Tomorrow, I'm set! I know what to do, and how to do it! I hopefully will be connected at the hotel tonight. Won't that be nice? I decided not to go to general session. I bet I live to regret it, but oh well. I think tomorrow I'll be going to the yarn store during general session. Doesn't that sound like fun? Lunch is soon, and I'm hungry after my … [Read more...]

MAX2004 - Day 3

I'm currently missing general session. I hate general sessions usually. The are really loud and rah-rah. I'm not in the mood for rah-rah. Last night I had another awesome dinner. I went to some resturant on Magazine Street. I wish I could remember what it was called. I had this incredible crab au-gratin. ok, YUMMY. I can't even explain, but i think it was crab, some sort of cheese and a few odd mushrooms. It was so rich I couldn't finish it. I had Pecan Crunch Ice Cream for dessert. … [Read more...]

MAX 2004 - Day 2

{senseless rant} Just so we are clear... The Hilton Riverside sucks. I rented that laptop so I could blog every minute of every day, and do you think I can get on to their network? HELL NO. I've called tech support 5 times, and still no internet. and, I lost my book. I 3/4's done and I lost my book. {/senseless rant} Day Two at MAX. Blogging from the conference floor. There are a ton of people here, and I've been trying very hard to be social. I've given away 2 business cards. One … [Read more...]
