Headed Out of Town

I'll be on a mini-retreat until next week doing a little celebration... I will have NO internet access where I am staying (I'll have to go to the nearest Starbucks if I really need a wifi fix). I'm trying to embrace this fact rather than let it piss me off. Yes, Amanda, you must disconnect!










Put. The Blackberry. DOWN.

Interesting article about woman liking tech toys more than SHOES. Shocker! ;)

A giant thanks to Lisa, Elisa, and Jory for making BlogHer such an amazing experience. Never have I learned so much in 36 hours, jeez. I'm still digesting all the info. The sessions were actually as interesting if not MORE interesting than the hallway convos... I find it's usually the other way around at most tech conferences. This one was different.

I'll be back with lots to talk about I'm sure.

    That's good news about women liking tech. Couples will save a lot of money like that, but they will have to want to same kind of tech first :P

    Go celebrate and forget internet access. It's going to be great!

    Have fun and take it easy. I hope this isn't like your last vacation (the now infamous "far from it" on July 1).

    Wait, you're going off the grid? How does that work? Do you, like, go... go... OUTSIDE??

    Actually I'm headed into the wilderness myself. Looking forward to the enforced break from the Net. Though I worry, with Ted Stevens on the loose, if it'll be here when I get back.

    I'm also going on a vacation. Lets see a week without a broadband connection feels like.

    Hope you get good rest and give us a video soon

    I have a theory as to why women love shoes so much. It's the only article of clothing they can try on and not feel fat *grins*

    In the movie In Her Shoes , one of the main characters said that she buys shoes because ,unlike clothes, shoes always fit. It this true ? I ask my female friends and they said it isn't true.

    Well to me , a cellphone or a blackberry will always look good on a girl who knows how to use it. No matter the size

    I definitely love tech toys more than shoes...well, maybe equally... no definitely more. :)

    Have a great getaway!
