See You At Mix06

0 comments suggest edit

Well maybe not all of you. For example, I know Jayson isn’t going. Sucker. (Oooh, I just had to rub it in, didn’t I?). ;)

For you others that are going, I know there a few people I hope to meet because you promised to buy me a beer, or did I promise to buy you one? Here are the lists of people I plan to see:

Buying Me Beer

I’m Buying

No Exchange of Beer, Just Saying Hello

Normally, when I go to a conference like this, packing is a last minute afterthought. But this time, I will plan one specific article of clothing for the first day of the conference. I’ll wear a retina scarring bright orange Aloha shirt so that those of you who owe me a beer can easily spot me. If I owe you a beer, I will be wearing green and I have blonde hair. Ignore the rest of this post.

Just look for the guy who looks like a cross between Kim Jong Il and Samuel Schmid. You can probably find me at the Craps or the Blackjack tables. Maybe, if things are going well, I might have a date with destiny at the Let It Ride tables. Assuming she still works there.

And of course, if time permits, I will be at some of the sessions.

    Dammit Phil...always rubbing stuff in! Of all the MS conferences, this is the one I want to attend most. The amount of thinking power present in LV will be staggering...well, scratch that, LV has a habit of taking the thinking power out of folks.
    Don't forget your digicam. Oh, nice shirt btw ;-)

    but too far from me, and we are bit late in the web2.0 thing in Italy ... so nobody in my company will be me a plain ticket to go to LV :-(
