Worlds colliding

Having a great time in Austin so far. After a few snags with airport parking, missed connection and a broken coffee pot, I'm now sitting in the lobby waiting for Mike. We stayed out way, way late last night. First, we attempted to go to the BlogHer meetup at Stubbs. We hung out at the bar. I assume that the bloghers were out on the patio, but we never made it out there. We left in search of food and got distracted by margaritas at the Iron Cactus. Man, those were good.

My worlds are colliding because the AWP is here too. There's a battle of eccentricity going on in the lobby and coffee shop. Are the techies funkier than the writers? Hard to say.

Shortly, we're headed over to the convention center to begin official conferencing. I think I'm going to have to accept the fact that my eyes will be bloodshot this entire trip.
