Texas charm

I took pix of some of the details of my hotel room which fill it with Texas charm:

Love how the sign has the Texas twine!
Do not disturb. Love the twine.

I just like the pattern on this chair
Love the pattern and the colors; I may need to cross stitch this some day.

I like the brick detail.
Love the "exposed" brick wall.

The bed I didn't sleep in!
Love the "footer"

The conference is now over. Maybe sometime I'll blog about giving talks, but for right now I'd like to blog about being the audience member attending a talk.

In one of the sessions today, there were people doing the usual emailing, web surfing and blackberrying, but today there was someone who was also knitting a pink and red (yes, pink and red) blanket. Seems kinda wild to me (the color and the act of knitting during a talk). I don't knit, but from what I understand, you can get in the groove where it gets kind of mindless. I'm not sure how I feel about the whole emailing/blackberrying/knitting thing. Don't get me wrong, I've seen the emailing/other technology stuff by audiences before, but this knitting thing was new to me and got me thinking about the overall idea. Hmmm...

My flight is at 7am tmw. Wish me luck!
