I'm going to keep my NaBloPoMo promise, but the next few posts will be sketchy, being at a work thing and all.
I'm stealing internet in the lobby of my hotel, after a long fucking day of thinking, listening to a musak version of a Crowded House song that I know you know, but can't for the life of me remember the name for.
Work conferences are always strange. I've been with my org for almost 4 years now, have been coming to these conferences for not much less time than that. No one ever recognizes me.
Today, I had a woman, a woman who has been to my workplace countless times, to whom I have been introduced several times, who has sat across the table from me at group dinners, today I had this woman, after I asked her about her poster, after she started in on her answer, suddenly pause and said "Are you Canadian?"
I love it, I have to say. I feel like I could do almost anything here, and no one would notice. It makes me feel like a superhero.
