I’ve got this theory working. My excitement about learning in any seminar session is conversely related to the amount of time I have been at a conference. I’m sure the last seminar I went to had the potential to be amazing, but I was so drained that I could hardly keep my head aloft.
Marko’s session did something I never thought possible – it gave me great excitement about teaching middle schoolers. It’s not that I don’t like middle schoolers (I do), but I’ve never had the inner fire you need to have when you stand in front of a bunch of them.
You ask, what’s wrong with the dallas cowboys? I wish I had a more elaborate answer, but here’s my guess: Drew Bledsoe. Three picks, a fumble, and a ton of bad decisions will not necessarily lose the game for you. When you are playing a team hell-bent on revenge on their home field, it will always lose the game for you.
The Austin Stone was a neat experience. Matt Carter can bring it. Erin and I were a little bummed that Tomlin wasn’t there, but Andy Melvin did a good job.
I might have only been in San Antonio for three hours, but I was still able to enjoy the finest Chinese food ever from Taipei. I know PF Chang’s and Pei Wei are all the rage, but Taipei is where it’s at. Get the #17 with no mushrooms.
The flight home was alright. I’m pretty sure I sat next to someone I went to high school with, but (and this is spoken like a true introvert) I decided to read my book instead of ask her.
Good weekend. It’s raining in Athens. It’s going to get cold in t-minus 40-something hours.
