Cherry Con Pics, Halloween, & NaNo

Cherry Con was AMAZING. We got delirious amounts of goodies, the Cherries are every bit as incredible in person as online, and the interactive lectures were nothing short of inspirational. I simply cannot express the all over total wonderfulness :) Go see the ridiculous amount of pictures I took here. Pictured above is everything I was given. The bed is queen sized. Oh, and the River Center Marriott was a great place to have it all.

Tonight was Halloween, and being a security guard means no elaborate costume. Cherry Con set me up for some fun, although it was too warm in the office tonight to wear the feather boa. Still, everyone loved the flamingos, and fought over who got to wear the flashing glasses. The playdoh was a hot commodity, and the cookie Deb brought was very yummy. Not pictured was Sue's delicious pumpkin roll.

It's November 1st, officially the start of another NaNoWriMo, and I'm in. For the first time (this is my fourth attempt), I've made the word count for the first day. Sure, it's way too early to be really excited, but I am modestly pleased. *New Addition* Wordcount widget on the bottom of page! Check out my progress :) *

Wow, I thought I got a lot of stuff at the IBM conference! You scored much more.

Really? This was my first conference, and while I knew that we really scored (among other things, I have the new Lani Diane Rich that won't be released until February - and it is awesome) I didn't have anything to compare it with. Although there were other conferences in the hotel, and we all felt sorry for them in their business suits while we strolled around in pajamas, tiaras, and feather boas.
