Well, would you look at that. Blogger is finally letting me use the tab key. How exciting. In fact, if you found that last discovery half as delightful as I did, you are going to throw up with joy when you read this next sentence. For my birthday (which was last Monday), I got an iPad keyboard! If you've read the About page, you know what a big deal this is. I can finally type like a normal human being! The callus on my left index finger from trying to type the letter "M" can finally heal! And most importantly, I am no longer a victim of my grumpy old laptop!* HOORAY!
Anyway. I'm pretty sure I haven't mentioned this before, but from now until Friday afternoon, I will be at the Washington Journalism and Media Conference at George Mason University. It's in D.C. and I live in Ohio. How was my journey here? I'm glad you asked. Really, it was very polite. thanks for that. You're a gem. I flew here (on a plane, not like with my arms...thought it might be necessary to clarify). As a side note (because I NEVER use those), Southwest is my new favorite airline purely because they give you both peanuts AND pretzels. Like what am I, the Queen of England or something? No, I am not; but it's hard to tell who is, as we discussed months ago. But I digress...from my digression. To sum that mess up, FOOD=ELLEN'S ETERNAL LOVE.
An entire lacrosse team was on my plane. I know they were a lacrosse team because they scattered themselves in such a way that required them to shout to one another about pretty much every detail of every play they've ever done. So what should have been a relatively peaceful hour-long flight turned into a lesson in "so much lax talk, bro" (unfortunately, that is a direct quote).
We're supposed to blog while we're here, so hopefully over the course of the week I will be able to update you lovely people on my adventures or things that I find amusing. So keep it classy until then, I guess.
