In New Orleans

I'm in New Orleans.

Came in on Wednesday (after plane was delayed do to hydraulic fluid). Had to go to Crabby Jacks and Hansen's.

Thursday queencimmy and were presenting a paper on Producer-Fan Interaction in Lost at the 2009 PCAACA National Conference. Our presentation went really well. Afterwards someone even came up to us and asked us if we had a copy of our paper, which was cool. I also went to panels on WoW and D&D, Ren Faires & Cons, and "Theatre: The Lighter Side." Some of the papers were good but a lot of them left me wondering where the author was going or what the point was. It's called writing an academic paper people.

Friday we ducked out of the conference early. Mom and I spent a nice evening together.

Today has been prep for seder day. Started the tzimmis nice and early in the crockpot. Now have the chicken soup on the stove with the matzo balls mix cooling in the freezer. House is starting to smell extra yummy.
