Ducking out of the conference to grab a coffee ’round the corner, remembering to remove my lanyard so I don’t look like a douchebadge.
Spent the afternoon holed up in my hotel room when I should have been listening to the excellent @ArtifactConf talks.
Airplanes; public transport; hotel room air-conditioning …all these factors seem to have conspired to give me a dose of the sniffles.

Worried that @SlightlyLate sometimes doubts my commitment to Sparkle Motion.
Going for a beer on the beach.
Ian Paisley’s death reminds me of the graffiti scrawled under “Ulster Says No!”:
“The Man From Del Monte Says Yes! And He’s An Orangeman”

Every speaker was phenomenal.
Up And Atom for @dConstruct.
Excited. Nervous. Giggly …and here. we. go!
