AIHce: Day -1

Still here in sunny, warm Denver.
  • I walked at least 4 miles today. Guaranteed more than 2, since I walked to the end of the mile-long pseudo-pedestrian zone & back.
  • My poster is hanging up in public.
  • P from 3M walked into the brewery - where the student social was - and, after saying hello, my next sentence was
    "Hey, P, I need a job"
    P: "Sure, I've got two"
    Shock & awe: hot damn!
    P: "They're in Indianapolis & [some city]"
    Me: where is that?
    P: South Dakota
    sigh ...
  • The reason you network at things like this is so you can call them and ask them to find the bag you left at the brewery & give it to someone heading back to your hotel.
I miss my husband.
I miss my children.

Tomorrow the conference gets into full swing. I've decided that I'm going to attend every single meeting/class that is involved in employment. Mock interviews, resume critiques, how to interview effectively.

Of course, I also plan to attend two of the big talks: First the president of UMW and second is David Michaels, author of Doubt Is Their Product. Damn, wish I had chosen his book to bring. Would it be toooo geeky to ask the Secretary of OSHA to autograph his book? Guess I'll never know.

Asking the Secretary of OSHA to autograph his book too geeky? I don't think so. Have you read it? He might be more impressed if you could point out something he wrote that you particularly liked or found useful....

You've been missing a rollercoaster of weather here. But you probably already know that....(smile)
