I don’t have any news to report from TechEd, because I’m not there. I’m not bitter about it though. I’m very happy here in the humidity of Mid-Atlantic USA. I’m very happy walking outside and not being able to hear myself think over the roar of the brood X cicada
. I’d say I get a certain amount of glee when swarms of them bash into my windshield like hail pellets in a heavy storm, but you might think I’m some sort of deranged entomophobic
who would rather be at TechEd. I don’t want to give you that impression.
I’m glad I’m avoiding the sore feet, the junk food, the airports, the jockeying for position at an AC power source, and being herded like an animal to feeding troughs for lunch.
That’s what I keep telling myself anyway.
