Home Again

By amandaperran in : Uncategorized // Oct 27 2006

Well my Ottawa trip has come to an end.  I was at the GTEC conference where I think I performed more consecutive SharePoint 2007 demos in a 3 day period than has ever been done before.  I even had my first experience of doing a demo while someone translated for me.  Very interesting…  Overall it was great though and I had a wonderful time meeting all the great people that dropped by the booth.  

I was amazed at how many people were seeing Vista, Office 2007 and SharePoint for the first time.  It obviously shows that its good for me to break out of my little world of early adopter geekdom once in a while since it was great to see the expressions on people’s faces as I walked them through some of the new features of each. 

All went really well.  However unfortunately not without a price.  It seems after I finished up at the conference on Wednesday my body decided to punish me for too many late evenings in a row and overall lack of sleep by delivering me a nasty headcold.  It made the flight home yesterday less than comfortable as I thought my ears were going to explode.  Though there was an adorable lady next to me on the plane that reminded me of my grandmother and spent the flight offering me treats such as chocolate bars and candy.  Very sweet lady!

    Are you crazy?! NEVER take candy or chocolates from sweet old ladies on planes! NEVER!

    I went to my grandmother-in-law’s place a few years back, and I swear the candies she had on the coffee table had been put there a decade before. They mean well, but they’re inadvertantly feeding you candy and chocolates they had stashed in their cupboards from when Michael Jackson was black.

    D’Arcy you are evil! Yet delightfully funny.
