SXSW 2006

As an addendum to my blog post:

Friday:

Flew in, checked in, napped then went to downtown to retrieve my badge and had a nice crispy trout dinner with Geoff. Entering the place we ate was very confusing. I opened the door and came to a closed curtain. As I was looking around for some other entrance the curtain automatically opened.

I suppose the curtain allows you a grand entrance when you are prepared. I'm sure I looked very confused.

Saturday:

Hung out with Linda and her friends at night on 6th Street, but was socially overloaded. Too many people I didn't know around. Got rear-ended at low speed twice in the parking lot then went to IHOP.

Sunday:

I was playing caretaker. I met Helen who had all these little boxes of wine. I helped get one girl who'd had too much to safety and hugged Willo in the process. I also succeeded in keeping buster from sleeping on the streets.

Monday:

Met Tikva and several of her classmates who are going to NYU's Interactive Telecommunications Program which sounds really, really cool.

After this cute little blond girl ran away to see a movie I switched to the party next door and drank more of Helen's juice boxes (which I also helped her distribute) and stole some pizza off of a table. For some reason I then went to the EFF party with a blogads guy and Carolyn.

Rather quickly we left there and went to the Red Bull party where Min Jung Kim fetched buster to let us in.

Tuesday:

Breakfast, sleeping, flying. A picture of my vehicle claim ticket saved my ass.

Wallet

Looking at my wallet, I notice that it is starting to wear on the flat, there's a tiny spot on the flat where the black has all rubbed away. I really like this wallet and since it hasn't been wearing on the folds it probably won't be up for replacing for at least another year.

I think this wallet was a sign of the beginning of the end with the bad girlfriend. Both she and my sister got me a new wallet for christmas. Guess which one I chose? (I liked my sister's wallet better, too.) I think the other wallet went to Cheryl.

I'm going downstairs for slanket time now.
