*clings to Internet*

So, as you have probably guessed from my lack of online presence, I have been unable to get wireless at the place where I'm staying. I dropped in at the conference's Internet Cafe yesterday to check mail and stuff, but it's just not the same. So today I dragged my laptop down to the convention center, and I'm skipping out on this particular round of presentations to get my fix.

Good trip so far -- presentations are a mixed bag, but some of them have been really good. Sherman Alexie spoke last night; he was amazing. A. Maz. Ing. If you ever have the opportunity to see him speak, do not pass it up. Tomorrow is Ira Glass. I have high hopes for him as a speaker, but he has a hard act to follow. Yesterday I had dinner with anonamys, whom I haven't seen in years, and then we hung out with another college friend, EW, whom I hadn't seen in even longer. Then today I ran into a colleague from an old job and had lunch with her. As a trip for revisiting old connections, it's been excellent.

Boy am I ready to be home and sleeping in my own bed, though. And with regular access to the Internet. I knew I was going to miss it, but I didn't realize it would be this much. If this trip has taught me anything, it's that I can travel without T, or I can travel without the Internet, but not both.
