I didn’t mean to blog and run…

…but I’ve been in Atlanta all week at a huge-mongous convention, which requires mucho standing around and smiling followed by vast quantities of walking and topped off with a helping of being “on” 24-7. It was freaking cold here this week, too, which made all the hiking around downtown (without a coat) even more pleasant.

This is a convention of the convenience store industry, meaning that every manufacturer of anything you can possibly think of (and some things you would never think of) to find in a store or the supporting equipment to run a store can be found. The big beer, candy and tobacco vendors all had their huge areas (some that would make most neighborhood sports bars weep with envy), and there were the traditional free samples.

I came away with the traditional haul of crap in a sack. At least we won’t go hungry for the next six months…

    Your conversion to flatlander must be complete, methinks.


    Free samples? Beer? I know I’m in the wrong business!

    It was this cold: http://www.wsbtv.com/weather/14529267/detail.html

    And that was before the wind chill.
    And I didn’t have a coat.
    And I walked to school uphill both ways.

    OK, that’s a bit brisk.

    I was expecting you to be looking for your snowsuit when it hit 50 degrees….

    My bad.

    Really kinda funny that Atlanta was as cold as Bangor. Yet another reason for you to come home. It’s cold everywhere!
