In Santa Clara Speaking at Kelsey Group Conference

Okay, so I finally made it back to the left coast, this time Santa Clara. I got maybe 2 hours sleep Saturday night and left the house at 4:45 am and headed to the airport. Funny part is that my car said I had 1 mile left before I needed to refill and the nearest gas station was 3 miles away. So, being the good citizen I am, I sped the entire way to the exit where the nearest gas station was and had to run a red light to get there before my car stalled. Unbelievably, I made it to the gas station and was so thankful.

Then my flight left at 7 am and I arrived in the valley a little after 2pm my time. Then I slept for 15 hours [no idea how I did that since I haven't slept that much in 3 weeks]. Now I just have a few things to take care of before I can go out in public [not including work].

  • Shave this awful beard off my face.

  • Get some Pepcid.

  • Find a grocery store.

  • Iron my clothes for the week.

  • Gather my thoughts about a piece I've had in the works for 2 months.

  • Register for the conference.

  • Change the time on my watch.

  • Charge the battery on my[shannons] camera.

  • Charge the battery on my cell phone

  • Take a shower.

  • Unpack

That was boring
As I composed that list I realized how obvious it is to Shannon that I need to shave every once in a while. I look pretty nasty when I don't shave and am often embarassed when I meet new people and they have never seen me before and they see me with this nasty beard. Hmmm, note to self, shave once in a while for Shannon's sake and your own.

Why am I here?
The Kelsey Group Conference brings me here and good friends and cool places keep me here. I'll be speaking at the local comedy clubs all week [scratch that] at the conference on Tuesday, and will be interviewing cool and interesting folks through Wednesday. Let me know if there is someone from the conference you'd like to ask a question and I'll be sure to include them and your question in my posts.
