Well, actually I’m not on the road at this particular moment — in fact, I’m sitting in my pj’s in a very nice hotel in Atlanta. My two-day conference starts tomorrow, so of course you conference-goers know what that means: using up a perfectly good day off by traveling on Sunday. But I can’t complain too much, as the trip was uneventful, and my Unnamed Colleague (it’s been suggested I call them my Jell-Mates) and I went out to dinner at a brewpub and each had a sampler of beer along with dinner. So far I like Atlanta a lot ….
I’ve been completely out of touch with politics today, as I had to do laundry and pack and walk the dog — I did not read the Sunday paper any more than the headlines. Maybe that’s a good thing. My room here at the hotel has a huge flat screen tv. Maybe I’ll turn it on. But them again maybe not. Sometimes being away from the 24-hour news casts is a good thing.
