On the road again....

I am finally here, ensconced in my lovely hotel room on the UM campus in Ann Arbor, MI.  I'm here for a conference until Friday.

So far so good.  First of all, let me say I "heart" Frontier Airlines.  Cheap, punctual, new planes, and TV.  Oh, and free headphones (with a standard jack).  You gotta love it.  And every plane has a name and a mascot (the animal painted on the tail).  Which is awesome.  The little girl 3 rows ahead kept telling her mom, "The plane's name is Trixie!" over and over between Denver and Detroit.  :)  Trixie, BTW, is a Red Fox.

And they fed us Donuts and Sun Chips.  Excellent.

The hotel I'm staying in is actually the top floor of the building on campus where the conference is being held.  Free wireless (thanks U of M network) and hot beverages whenever I like (coffee, tea, cider, cocoa, etc.), and the conference folks are doing a tolerable job of feeding us.  Just hors d'oeuvres this evening, but it was fruit and veggies and a cheese tray, so I pigged out on healthy stuff!

Those of you in "flyover territory,"  I was thinking of you as I was flying over!  Especially this guy, as the map said I went right over his neck of the woods :)

I'm planning on seeing these folks while I'm in town, so hopefully that will work out, unlike the last time I went to a conference and got food poisoning so I didn't get to meet up with Rob.

How fun! Say HOWDY to the Esmays for me? Since their little one and my Peanut share the same birthday, I feel a kinship, there. :)
