I am at a conference. Here. At the Gaylord Opryland Hotel. This place is HUGE. As in 50 indoor acres huge.
Right now I'm on my lunch break and Mr. Peculiar (who came with me -- thanks Grandma and Grandpa) is out galavanting.
Thus far I have learned a few things unrelated to veterinary medicine and I thought I'd share them with you.
- Our room rests at the intersection of the red and green carpets. If you're on brown carpet you've gone too far. Double back. Run if necessary.
- If you want to sit on the patio of a restaurant inside this massive unit ask for a patio seat; technically the patio is not outdoors.
- I like wearing knee high leather boots and v-neck cashmere sweaters and long gray skirts.
- I especially like wearing the above because they are thrifted.
- I ought not stay here too long or I might come home with a drawl.
- There are not enough hallway seats outside the conference hall.
- One can sit on the floor in a skirt.
- The line for a free lunch is inappropriately long.
- A smoothie and walk are an excellent substitute.
- When using your computer in a public place mute the sound, preferably before the loud ad pops up on your screen.
- I like taking notes on my computer.
- I wouldn't mind being a student again.
And now off to my next class -- "It's for the birds! Clinical ER Cases in Avian Medicine." I need to boogie -- it's a long walk back.
