NCHE conference 5/22

And I really have nothing very interesting to write...hmm...

I think the most fun was people-watching while we sat in the parking garage for 45 minutes. The last session ended at nine, then we were talking for a very short time and then headed out to the car. And the parking garage was a traffic jam. Someone let us pull out in front of them, so we were able to get in the line, but it was ten by the time we got out of there! However, for most of the time we were right by the exit door and we got to see the people coming out. There were the people who came charging out the door and pulled up at the sight of the line and raised their eyebrows in shock, and after that they either squared their shoulders and charged off to find their vehicle, stood there bewildered and wondering what to do next, went back inside, or got out their cellphones and leisurely meandered off to find their vehicles. Oh, and then there was the guy who was pacing around looking mad about the situation, and once we finally got moving he had to run and catch up with his wife who was driving the car! :p

I went to two seminars and the very end of one. I wandered around the bookfair, found some books but decided they cost too much. And I forgot to take any pictures. I also forgot I had packed my knitting, and I could have knitted through a whole somewhat-boring seminar if I'd remembered. Oh well, I'll knit tomorrow.

I saw two of my friends, and the mom of another. I really wish we still got the Greenhouse Report so I could see who all is graduating this year, because my friend that I didn't see is graduating, and I imagine some other people I know might be graduating too. And there doesn't seem to be any list online. :(

So...tomorrow might be more interesting. :) Right now I'm pretty tired, so I think I'll get to bed soon. Goodnight...and good luck...

Strange things happen when I'm tired and type randomly...:D I didn't even remember the guy's name though, I just remember that movie. Good movie too...

So you did not go to the NCHE dance thing they had?

Did you find the Starbucks?

Natalie said...

Will: no, I could have as we stayed later than I thought we would, but then I forgot about it. It sounds like girls outnumbered guys anyway, so one more would have only made it worse! :D

Mandolinartist: yes, it's right across the street...BUT it's always packed. Homeschoolers like coffee I guess! And why would you think the Starbucks would be so interesting to me? Hmm... ;)
