Jeneric Jeneralities ~ by JenIG

Lucky for me, no kidney issues yet.  We fly out of Boston tomorrow, so hopefully it’ll stay a non-issue till I get to my cozy little house. Thanks for all the tips and the helpful-hint emails.  You guys are awesome.

And the conference went really well. Superbly well, actually. This job is *the* greatest.  I love Rosetta Stone, and they even surprised us by having lunch delivered to us both days.  That’s just plum nice.  And see? I finally got my affiliate banner up over there in my side bar, so iffen you’re planning to buy the greatest language program know to humankind, feel free to buy it over here

And the workshop I taught went well. As tempting as it was, I ended up *not* giving the presentation in song or with dance numbers.  A lot more people showed up than I expected. But I didn’t get nervous at all, and it was nice because everybody asked a lot of good questions. 

One of the best parts of the weekend was getting to hang out with fellow blogger, Prodoceo.  She and her crew were manning the Alpha Omega table.  She is so great – despite the fact she is extraordinarily pretty (seriously, it was intimidating).  Me and Coie went with her whole crew to a 50’s diner the first night and we had a great time.  Our waitress’s name was Flo.  How can you not have fun when you have a waitress named Flo? I hope I get to see her again soon (Prodoceo I mean… not Flo).  One warning tho… do not drive with that lady.  S.C.A.R.Y.  Linda, next time let me drive, K?

 And the saddest part of the weekend was seeing Maggie Hogan the Magnifico …but only in passing.  We didn’t get to hang out once — talking in the convention hall just doesn’t count..  No worries, tho, we’ve got a party planned for our trip to FPEA.  Whoo hoooo!  I wish I would have gotten a picture of her.  My eyes popped out when I saw her. She has lost like 100 pounds.  She looks like a super model.  

In other news, taxi drivers are not normal.  I never knew that before. *yipes*  But I figured out that I do like MA.  It looks nothing like what I pictured.  I mean, you can’t even SEE it on the map.  I figured it would just be a little hill with about four streets, but it’s actually big enough to hold two cities.  And it’s really beautiful.  So that was fun.

So now we’re done with trips until the end of May.  It’ll be good to get back to the farm.  Happy sigh.

    I am not a S.C.A.R.Y. driver…I'm a C.I.T.Y. driver. There's a difference, you know.

    I totally agree that meeting and "hangin'" with you and Coie was definitely the best part of the weekend. Sorry we didn't get a chance to say goodbye!!

    Hope your stones stayed put for the trip home!! I hope we'll meet up again soon!

    Thanks for the lovely compliment. Is it possible that your kidney stones are affecting your vision? 🙂

    Are you coming to NC in May?

    Hi, Jen! It sounds like you and Coie are having a great time! I am so glad that you have this opportunity, and that you are writing articles again. Are you coming to NC at the end of May? I will be at that convention, and it would be great to finally meet you and Coie in person!

    Have a blessed day! Tami

    Oh you're so lucky! I want to meet Prodoceo! I have got to think of something I can sell or promote so that I can go to these conferences too. I feel like I'm missing out….. =(

    meeting you in Worcester, Ma

    It was great to meet you and your daughter Coie, plus enjoy a meal together at the Diner. I have read tons from your blog and feel like I know you better.You are an awesome writer. Now I am afraid to start writing my blog. I do hope our paths cross again. Take care.

    PS Linda is the best multi-task driver I know! Did I miss something?
