1355 - Giving the presentation

I got to the area of the hotel early enough this morning that I could have breakfast. The Stage Deli serves a massive, huge, humongous plate of hash (I had the pastrami hash). I ate maybe a third of it. It was yummy.

I got inside the hotel, got my presentations from the copy center, and discovered the previous session ended early. I set the laptop up, then decided to give the presentation in the TRON costume. I put the unitard on in the bathroom and my street clothes over it, then saw that there were people in the room, so I went to the next room over (which was empty) and put on the rest of it. I walked into the room, said "Greetings, programs!", and explained that, since everyone had been asking me where the costume was, I decided to oblige them.

The talk went well. As I expected, what I'd prepared slides for took about 30 minutes, and the people at the session had about 30 minutes' worth of comments and questions. I spoke to a few folks after the session ended. Finally, two other folks came up to talk. I would up talking to them for about 45 minutes. It was a good thing that the room was unused once my session was over.

When they left, I asked them to close the door. I changed back into street clothes right there, and was packing up as the A/V guys came in to tear down the setup.

Got back to bronxelf_ag001's place, and sat and talked for a while. I'll be poking around the net until sometime after 5, when we'll head downtown to meet michaelmink for dinner.

current mood: [mood icon] pleased

I've only ever heard of Hash as drugs...is this some kind of American food, or do you do drugs?

It's food. Basically, shredded meat (usually corned beef, but others can be used, as in this case, pastrami) and shredded potatoes are fried on a grill. Other ingredients can be added; this one had onions and peppers.

And no drugs. I don't do mind-altering drugs (aside from limited amounts of alcohol on occasion). I like the way my mind works without them just fine, thank you.
