Tuesday I taught class to 15 people, which is a lot. There were some interesting technical problems in the training room, so I was really glad that I had a senior trainer with me for my first time on the road.
After class, I rested in my hotel room for a bit and then I took the T and met up with bellebet and headed over to a Chinese/Sushi restaurant where we met up with rogueactor and the Frenchman. Had a lovely dinner with belle and rogue, full of wonderful conversation and really amusingly named after pop-culture things rolls.
Wednesday my co-trainer taught the class, and I played TA. After class I took the T out to meet kiten. It was so awesome to see her. The Frenchman, and I hung out at her place with her adorable polydactyl kitty cat, who is OMG so cute. He was doing that "I'm so tired but there are people and I want to play but I'm going to fall over at any moment" thing that was adorable to watch. Got some good hanging out and cuddling with dear friends. :)
Thursday morning I had to say goodbye to the Frenchman. :( He's going back to France soon, so I'm glad I got to spend some time with him before he goes. Then I got to the training room nice and early because it was a whole new class with a new group of people. There was some confusion because my schedule said class started at 9, but the schedule that was emailed out said class started at 9:30, so I had to wait around for everyone to show up. Because of that, class ran a little past 5.
Took the T to Davis Square. (See how every evening starts with that. I felt all super hip and urban taking the T every evening, wearing my iPhone headphones, listening to music, and being confident with where I was going.) Met up with omnia_mutantur and wandelrust and went out for gourmet pizza. The pizzas were good, but the dessert, which was hot pizza crust covered with nutella, fresh strawberries, and a touch of basil, was amazing.
Friday was the last day of class. Finished it up a little early, which was good cause people (including me) had flights to catch. After the last person left, I got my bags and took the bus to Logan airport for my 6:50 flight back home. When I got off the plane in Houston, there was a woman with 3 kids who was really confused and I thought that maybe she had never flown before or was having a panic attack or something. Since I overheard that she was going to Austin too, I helped make sure that she found her way to the right terminal. She asked my name like 3 times. It was weird. Turns out that she had had a drink and it was stronger than she expected (or so she said) and so she was just a little drunk. Well, I'm glad I was able to make sure that her kids got home, even if their mom was being weird/irresponsible. When I got to the gate for the flight to Austin, i found out there was a flight to New Orleans leaving at almost the exact same time at almost the same terminal, literally. All that separated them was a partition. I joked with the guy checking my boarding pass that it was a tough call, do I go visit my mamma and sister in New Orleans or do I go home to my husband. Ultimately the husband and cats won out over the sister and mom. Got in to Austin with no problem. lordaerith was waiting for me and we went home where I said hi to the cats and fell over.
This weekend has been nice and relaxing. Spent a lot of time just hanging out with Aerith Got to play some regular WoW (my guild had a Cow Throwing party...throw your cleverly named level 1 Tauren off of Thunder Bluff and hit a specific spot while yelling some sort of bad pun. I LOST spectacularly!) and some of the Cataclysm beta (my Worgen is finally out of the starting zone).
