I am about to catch a shuttle to the airport to fly down to San Francisco. I don't know what made me think that starting this early was a good idea, but hey it's an adventure or something :)

I'll be working down there for two days, meeting all the new SixApart people and going to lots of meetings I'm sure. There is also supposed to be drinking, I figure that this is a good thing. ;)

I'll be flying back Saturday evening, so there's some time in there for me to have some fun. Not sure what I'll be doing, but I'm sure that my coworkers will have some ideas.

SF Day 1

I had a pretty good day today. It started off with me waking up at 3:30am and catching a shuttle at about 4:30. Got to the airport way early and ran the security gauntlet pretty easily. That left me with over an hour before the flight. I sat back and listened to my iPod for a while and wandered around looking through the news stand. I picked up a motorcycle magazine for the flight, which was good since I ended up just reading that instead of tinkering with my laptop. The flight was pretty quick right off the plane I got myself to the BART and figured out how that all worked. About 45 minutes later I was walking down the street to the six apart offices. Made it there ok and finally got to meet all of these people that I'm working with. I even got some fairly productive work done. I went out to lunch with a good chunk of the LJ crew and had a huge burrito. I can't believe that I ate it all. Worked kinda late and started to get kinda punchy at around 5pm, so I tried to take it easy. I had dinner with xb95 at a place called Dino's. I had a meatball sandwich. He had a 'small' calzone. It was enormous. xb95 dropped me off near my hotel and I checked in. They have free wifi here, but I had to go down to the desk to get login info. I stepped out of the room with my key and tried to pull the door to but it wouldn't latch so I tugged on the door handle a bit.. no good... so a bit more... the door handle came off! I took it down to the front desk and the lady there giggled that told me that it was perfectly ok (It seems that this is not an infrequent occurrence) and gave me a new room. This one is a bit bigger which is nice. I'm pretty tired so I think that I'll go to bed real soon. Tomorrow will be a day of meetings culminating in drink. It could be worse ;)
