At Bloomiefest

Saturday, March 11th, 2006

I found my way to Bloomington, Illinois and my friends at Bloomiefest. I got here later than I wanted (I tend to run late especially when it involves lugging things around and overnight stays) but I still had time to mostly set up the booth before they closed down the conference room for the night. We start again at 9am, slightly early for me but I’ll make it.

You know, it’s the little things that make life easier. Friends helped me lug my stuff from the car and do some of the set up. Then my room had both a small microwave and refrigerator… for someone like me who has to bring much of her food, that was a wonderful happy surprise. Then the hotel had fast wireless Internet. This hotel isnt’ as fancy looking as the one where we met the last 2-3 years, but I’m liking the service at the front desk and the conveniences in my room, much better.

The only down side is that my friend who was going to share a room with me, couldn’t make it. Maybe she will come tomorrow, maybe not. I enjoy her company so much, and we only see one another at Bloomiefest, so I’ll be bummed if she can’t come.

However, there are old friends here and new ones yet to meet. This will be the most fun a person can have working, I think!
