Another exciting day at the conference!

We'uns didn't check in with the entire federal government today, but the nice lady did take the time to inform me that the cafeteria was serving, "Pinto beans and taters! For only four dollars!" Exciting!

I declined on that though.

Other good news:

This morning's speaker was actually really good. AND we got to watch accident simulation videos, which is always exciting.

Seeing cartoon people blow up is just weird though.


The afternoon speakers were less stimulating. The guy across the aisle from me fell asleep and snored REALLY loudly. I wish I would have had a Breathe Right nasal strip because he totally needed one. Also? I think he might have drooled. I wasn't looking that closely.


Tomorrow is a 1/2 day. All about Beryllium. I'll try to contain my excitement. You know how worked up I tend to get.

I always have the bizarre compulsion to stick things up the noses of public snorers.

Seriously.

It's all I can do to resist.

Julie said...

Pinto beans AND taters for only $4?! How did you resist!

Erica said...

MMMMMMMM Yum! Nothing like good ole conference food to get you going! You could have pinched his nose and watched him choke a little. Yes I am evil. I have practiced my technique on my husband. HA!

Beans at a conference? I would have been sitting on a "bubble" all afternoon! You wonder who plans these menus, really!

I think I have to move to Tennessee in order to have more "fun" and I just want to mention this as well, I have never been able to make sense out of a bidet! Just thinking of the germs, alone, does things to me that are crazy! I don't want to sit on a public toilet seat, let alone wash my "genitalia" in something that looks similar to a toilet. Can I just say, "EWWWWWWW"...and shudder?

Shanilie said...

got to love conferences. don't go wearing a nice warm, comfy, fuzzy sweater or you'll be the one drooling lol.

EE said...

Breathe Right strips don't really work...take it from someone who makes her snoring hubby sleep in the basement!

I'm shocked! You have to PAY for food at your conference? Free food is usually the reason I GO to conferences!

Beans and taters? Is that all they can afford to serve? Snoring people in public always make me laugh :-) I hope your day tomorrow is more interesting.

Steph..how could you pass on the pinto beans and taters?

I miss you but I know you're having a ton-o-fun!

Rachel said...

Man, sometimes Tennessee is just asking to be made fun of! Seriously, beans and taters? Gah!

Kellie said...

Amy W said...

Totally jealous, can you tell?

Beans and Taters? Well, on the menu this week at the lovely hospital cafeteria - Liver & Onions, Magic Spinach, Corn Bites. I kid you not.

Pinto beans and taters. Award-winning cuisine, right there. How did you ever resist?

I would have liked to see you stick one of those strips on the snoring guy's nose while he was sleeping. That would have made the conference worth going to.
