I did have a truly awesome food moment at the conference: Liz Burns who blogs at A Chair, A Fireplace, and A Tea Cozy and Angie Manfredi (who blogs at Fat Girl Reading) stopped by the booth and told me they were going to In-N-Out, the greatest fast food burger joint ever (as far as I'm concerned). The California Girl in me oohed and aahed, and Liz and Angie were so affected by my food geekdom that they offered to bring some back for me. One $40 round-trip taxi ride to In-N-Out later, and here is me gushing over my animal-style cheeseburger and cheese fries:
Amazing. An absolute highlight for me. It reassured me that, even though I live across the country, the things I love about home are still within reach.
Eat, drink, and get by with a little help from my friends (thanks, Liz and Angie!)
