Well, whereas most people were getting on planes and shuffling home to their families, some of us stayed the extra days to enjoy the sites, sounds and warm weather. That, and it was a special deal if I left on Tuesday instead of Sunday.
The day started at 10 am as I woke up from a very hard sleep. I shuffled downstairs for a little while because the local fox affiliate had the Giants game on. Of course, I wanted to watch a bit of the Packer game.
By halftime, I knew this game was done, so I went back up to my room to nap and work. It’s an interesting multitasking function for you need mad skills to do it. Nonetheless, I finished uploading pictures and blog posts from the previous day.
The afternoon was mostly sight seeing. I walked down the main strip and back. It’s amazing how heat with little humidity can not make you sweat as much.
I got back to the room after dinner and started to get some more work done. That is when I found out, via Twitter, a group of people were still around and wanted to get together for dinner. I already ate, but could use some desert. Therefore, I headed over to the Hilton for a little networking.
We deemed it the “unofficial Post blogworld tweetup”. It consisted of Zane from Zaneology, Wayne Sutton, Edward Morita, Kate Buck jr, Jen Wojcik and Nichole Simon. We talked about Blogging, Tweeting, Bumping (the iPhone Application, that is), Tattoos and SXSW.
The reason why on Tattoos is because Ed has a WordPress Tattoo on his arm. He had a few, but this one was the coolest, in my opinion. And unlike the Zune guy, he’s not going to get rid of his tattoo.
We finished our drinks, the staff kicked us out of the Buffet, and that brought me back to the Hotel. I found out that the A/C – which I haven’t used all week – actually doesn’t work too well. It’s kinda loud. It wasn’t really hot in the room, but slightly uncomfortable. I ran it for about an hour, then everything was fine.
What a great day it turned out to be. I met some great people, learned a few more tricks and got work done. One more day, then I close the books on #BWE09.
