i fly to las vegas tomorrow.
i checked in on usairways.com this morning and got a window exit row seat, so i’m all set there. now i just have to pack. i’m going to be there for a whole week, so i’m thinking i’ll need the big suitcase.
i’m going to the society for technical communication’s annual conference. it’s being held at bally’s and paris; i’m staying at bally’s because it was $30 cheaper per night than paris. and since work is paying, they wanted me to be as frugal as possible. the per diem for las vegas is only $50 a day, which seems awfully low for a city like that.
i’ve only been to vegas once, and that was for work too. we stayed at a hotel about 20 minutes off the strip and had practically no free time. we did get to see the blue man group perform, but even that was a team thing. no complaints — it was an awesome show. but it would’ve been nice to have had more free time.
well anyway, this week i should have plenty of free time. there are sessions on monday, tuesday, and wednesday from 8:30 to 10, 11 to 12, 2 to 3:30, and 4 to 5. on thursday, there’s a single session from 8:30 to 5 with a break from 12 to 1:30.
i’m excited but mostly excited just to get away for a week. it will be so nice not to have to worry about work for an entire week.
