I have a few minutes to use this $7.95 that I paid for wi-fi at Big Conference Outside my Discipline. EcoGeoFemme surprised me just now, by walking up to me in the exhibit hall and we had a really short blogger meet-up! We had been in touch before the conference, but never managed to plan anything specific. We both ended up being pretty busy, but it was good to get to meet her briefly, at least! Here we are on the lovely exhibition hall carpeting:

That's D on the left, btw. 

H, D, & I were supposed to stay until tomorrow, then drive further north for vacation, but those plans were conveniently changed by the U.S. government, who finally sent H's letter for his naturalization ceremony- and it's tomorrow at 1:00PM. Thanks for the six days notice! Instead, we are driving back to Small College Town tonight AFTER my poster session. It ends at 7:00, but I'm going to try to get out early, because we will be arriving at home at 2:00 or 3:00 AM. It's exciting that H finally got his letter, but what crappy timing- we've been at home all summer and NOW they decide to schedule that damn thing. We changed our destination and will go on vacation next Monday instead. In the mean time, we are all exhausted and just waiting until we can leave later. I will probably drink REAL coffee tonight to make the drive home. Ugh. I'll try to blog more about the conference over the weekend...
