I just found this entry in my NetNewWire drafts folder and I thought I would post it. It is mainly about my trip to Chicago. Here it is:
Well alot has been going down (as the kids say) in Blankbabyville. Some of it good, some of it not good at all, but probably good in the long run. However, I am going to talk about my recent excursion to the Windy City, Land of Oprah, that’s right I went to Chicago.
Overall, I give Chicago a heaping helping of thumbs up. It has character and lots of interesting architecture. My hotel room over looked the Chicago River and was steps away from the Magnificent Mile, which is the high end shopping district of Chicago.
I ambled my way down the Michigan Aveune and I passed by the Fabulous All Suite Omni Hotel, where guests of the Oprah Winfery show stay. I, alas, did not stay there but every time I looked at it I heard Oprah‘s voice in my head saying ‘The Fabulous All Suite Omni Hotel.” That is something I suppose.
I was in Chicago to attend a Crystal Enterprise 9 admin class, which I learned an awful lot from. If you have any Crystal, feel free to shoot me an email and we can talk about my consulting fees.
Of course while I was in Chicago I went to the Apple Store, and I got a chance to hold an iPod mini. Let me tell you something, you can’t make up your mind about this product until you have seen it in person. On Apple’s website it looks rather unimpressive, but when you have it in your hands it is another story.
I am sure I meant to write more about the trip, but I wrote this so long ago I no longer remember where I was going with this, so I am posting it as it.
