This weekend was full of events, people, beer, and heavy lifting. This weekend marked the MCLLM here at NIU. Matt's really glad that it's over as he was one of the chairpeoples for it. Friday was the first day for the conference and there was a poetry reading at The House, a coffee house up here. Matt dedicated one of his poems to me and it was a really great thing. I had never seen one of his readings before so it was really special to get to see this one. After everyone had read we convened at The Annex and drank a little. I had to get up at 8am Saturday to help someone move. Didn't realize that we had to go into downtown Chicago and carry boxes down 4 flights of stairs. I sure got my workout. But I also made $75 for helping. So all and all not to shabby of a deal. Then last night was a reception for the keynote speakers for the conference. There I met Meg Hourihan, one of the co-founders of this little company called Pyra, was co-creator and Director of Development of a little blogging tool we all love and use, Blogger, until February 2001. We all had a great time talking until 5 in the morning. Then today I slept until 2 in the afternoon and had a headache all day and just about every one of my joints/muscles/bones hurt, and it's back to the "salt mines" tomorrow too. Sigh, oh well, such is life and that's how I see it.
