Poor but healthy

Well, bad news and good news. Which do you want first?

The bad news is I did not win the presentation prize. The two winners highly deserve the honour and in fact are the two people I had pegged as potential winners. Still, I was complemented by a number of people and I feel very good about my presentation. 'Nuff said.

The good news is that while returning to my hotel room on the campus, I spotted two deer happily munching and a female elk and the key here is that she did not charge me. I saw no whites of the eyes, no ears were flattened, everything is hunky dory. Very cool to be around these majestic animals while attending an otherwise innocuous conference.


  1. Ah boo.

    But I too am glad the elk didn't charge you.
