Conference, End of Day 2

Sitting here in a hotel room with three other women debriefing about today's sessions and about whether Airborne makes you gassy.

The consensus is yes, Airborne makes you gassy.

We attended some great general and breakout sessions today, but now I'm on information overload.

Highlight of the day: Frances Chan, author of Crazy Love. You should check him out.

Lowlight: standing on cement steps through many, many songs. Speakers who repeat phrases ad nauseum. Sessions running way too long.

But I'm not one to dwell on the negative.

I am, however, one to dwell on gas.

Because I'm reminded of it about every three minutes, as are my co-staff.

OK, it's 12:15 a.m. and I'm not asleep yet, which I think is illegal.

I'm signing off. I loved reading your comments, just don't have time to reply in hotel lobby.

So, Ta-ta, or Toot toot for now.

i've been having insomnia this i'm up also.
have you felt the prayers coming your way today?? You've crossed my mind several times today...just knowing you're in town, I guess, has put you on the front burner. Continuing to pray for your enjoyment of the conference, ears to hear what you need to hear and eyes to take in everything you see.
p.s. you might want to sneak in some BEANO before you take your's worth a shot--or a toot--whichever the case may!
night night! :)

Hope the conference is going good!!

I'm daily enjoying your blog, a whole new world for me (but I'm definately not a stalker), just so admire your writing and army of followers. I wish I was there to have the PA system folks announce "2nd Cup Lid, 2nd Cup Lid, a bloggy cohort would like to meet you." That would be fun. I know I sound like someone who is starstruck or something, but I am not- if I met a movie star in the street, I'd be like "hi, how ya doin'". I just enjoy meeting the regular folks, especially the ones with a sense of humor I get. I hope you glean abundantly from your conference- somehow I've missed what the conference is about- and glad to hear your trip to Atlanta went well. Let me know if you ever get to Michigan.

Sounds like most conferences, lots of good information- almost too much to process. Hope you got some sleep.

Note to Self - Never, never, never let hubby take Airborne!

Carmen Gamble said...

Glad to hear you're enjoying the conference. Totally relate to your lowlights...wonder how considerate that is to an audience...but I won't dwell on the negative either. Have you tried tums, or beano?

I love your brand of weird. It's a great weird. Really, I'm not just calling you weird. I mean it, you're hilarious-weird, which is the best kind of weird. It's not a put-down, I'm weird too. Wait, maybe that makes it a put-down.

Nevermind. You just make me laugh and I love it. The End.

Heth said...

You did NOT get to hear Francis Chan?! Totally jealous. I'm in the middle of reading Crazy Love right now, if "reading" means reading a paragraph and then setting it down and thinking about that paragraph for three days. Good dang stuff.

Quick story:
Last night my child's Awana leader just HAD to tell me a story about how during the prayer "this smell suddenly just overwhelmed the whole group" and she looked down at my son who looked up at her and gave her a funny (but seemingly unknowing) look. She crinkled her nose and said "Bad smell," to which he replied, "I wouldn't know. My nose is so stuffy I can't smell a THING!" She whispered, "I think someone tooted." And he simply beamed up at her with a HUGE grin (and squinty eyes, because that's what we have around here when we smile) and whispered back, "I KNOW!!! It was MEEEEE!" Yep. That's my boy.
