I’m so ticked!
I just wrote what was probably the most brilliant post I’ve ever written, all about how I’ve not a thought in my head and when I clicked “preview” it disappeared!
It was gone. Nothing left but the title — I’ve got nothing! — great title, huh? I thought so too.
I can’t remember all the gems of wisdom that flew from my fingertips, so I guess I’ll just have to go with Plan B.
I have to go to a big HR conference for work in a couple of weeks and am trying to decide whether to finally spring for an iPad or lug around my 5 pound MACBook for 4 days. I’ve done that a few times and, let me tell you, it gets pretty heavy along about the middle of the second day.
So, if you have an iPad, please let me know what you like and dislike about it. The temptation to get one is getting to be almost overwhelming.
Then there’s the other little conference problem I have.
I’ve done a 4 day conference in heels and I’m never going to do that again. It was way back in 1994 but I still remember the agony my toes suffered all in the name of looking stylish and professional.
Anyway, choosing flats is a given but which flats? The ones I wear around the office everyday? They’re okay but I’ve actually worn them to a 4 day conference and, even though they’ve been resoled, I’m pretty sure about half way through the second day (I’m beginning to see a pattern here), my feet will hate me.
I just realized that I’ve had those shoes since 1997. I know this because I remember wearing them at a big conference in 1998 where I had to work the booth. They are the sweetest little pair of Antonio Melani loafers with the softest leather ever. They’re black so they go with everything. But, as much as I love them, they’re killers after a few hours of trekking through a convention. So, what to do?
I know — Keds!
You can never go wrong with Keds.
All I have to do is get a pair of black slip on Keds and I’m all set. Then again, those hot pink skimmers are pretty nifty, too.
So, do you think a bunch of HR types would think me too terribly weird if I show up for the big conference in hot pink Keds?
Might be fun!
Definitely a conversation starter. I’m just guessing, though, that I probably wouldn’t be included in any of those conversations. LOL!
