A Beautiful Day in Frisco

An early morning for me. Up at 5, to a dark house, struggling to get going and out the door. I managed to get in the car and driving by 5:25 and made it to the airport at 6. Fortunately security was quick and I had time to buy a muffin and coffee, arriving at my gate just as Group 2 was finishing.

Usually flights to SFO are packed, but this one was empty. In fact, I managed to get the whole front row to myself. Not sure that’s ever happened.

The trip was uneventful, with me watching a movie and lightly dozing. Good because as soon as we landed I had to find a spot and log onto a webinar in the airport. I thought I had a good one, but about 5 minutes into the webinar, someone started a circular saw in the background as construction was happening in a new shop.

Fortunately I didn’t have to speak much.

Then it was a train into the city, drop off luggage, and go find a power adapter. Once again, I forgot to pack my laptop power cord. I’d been using it at my desk and grabbed the laptop last night to print something.

I trip to Office Depot, then lunch, then a few minutes to sit and mentally review my presentation for tomorrow. It’s quick, 3 minutes, but I’m part of a Microsoft talk, so I need to be sure I can get my part done smoothly. Lucky I found a nice spot to mentally review things.

Yerba Buena Gardens, on a beautiful sunny, SF day. A rarity from my visits, but nice enough to sit outside in a t-shirt.

Now working in Starbucks before rehearsal, about to do it all again.
