Today was my day to attend CFUnited as a guest of Teratech. I haven't been to this conference since they used to hold it in a single lecture hall at NIH. It's gotten huge since then, with four concurrent sessions running and people from around the country attending. Too bad I can't go all three days, it's very good. I hadn't been to the Bethesda North Marriott convention center before--I think it's pretty new. Time and babysitting were issues so I drove, but the White Flint metro stop is just across Rockville Pike from the hotel.
I usually leave my phone in the car all the time. I brought it in with me because Christopher was going to orientation at UMBC today and I wanted him to be able to reach me if he needed something. Of course I didn't want to have to pull the thing out of my purse because it's too big and too daisy-y. The next-biggest phone I saw all day was the size of a cigarette lighter. And they were all silver. Your choice in phone colors is now silver or brushed silver, it seems.
Chris didn't call, but the babysitter did right in the middle of a session. She wanted me to bring her a tomato when I came to pick up Victoria. So I'm glad I brought the phone in.
