i'm going to guess that most of you have never wondered this before...and probably you don't really care about what the world is like at 3:00am. but for the sheer fact that i got to experience it this morning i was all like i guess i will at least tell my blog about it. so that's what i'm doing.
let's be real about one thing. the only time anyone is (or should ever) be up and around at 2:30am is when they are coming home (maybe a little faded) and going to bed. pretty sure it should be illegal for people to wake up at this hour. in fact alarm clock companies should just make a deal with the world that they won't function prior to 5am...5am is gross but anything before that is just wrong.
that is the official number i read while parking at the oregon convention center this morning.
it was dark, freezing and my car windows were icy. sick. i passed 7 cars total between my house and OCC. sick. the parking garage metal gates were down, i had to use the swiper and i set the extremely loud alarm off. sick. my window decided to have an electrical issue when i tried to roll it back up from using the swiper and wouldn't roll back up, so it was left half down today. sick. i was the first person (apart from 1 security guard) to enter the convention center today. sick. it is 2:27 and i have already worked an 11 hour day. sick. i am guess you are finding a trend with this mornings activities...there was a lot of sick going around...although, in fairness it wasn't all nasty...some of it was actually kind of awesome...
here's why -- i got to work with drew carney again today!! and rose marie nicols mcgee (yeah i know right? tight ass name!! she is a speaker at the show...and drew did one of his segments on her....)
plus sister and i got approved for our new house and we sign the lease this weekend! it has a laundry room WITH a brand new washer and dryer...i feel spoiled...not to mention it has TWO full bathrooms, a fancy new bar, huge video projector screen in the basement (aka the tv!), garbage disposal...AND the best part of the whole entire house...the dishwasher!! i never realized what a luxury a dishwasher was. like most things, you never realize how amazing until you don't have it...a dishwasher is one of those things.
