Home From Orlando

by derek on May 24, 2007 · 10 comments

My trip to Orlando has come to an end and I am now back at home with bags to unpack, laundry to wash and a bunch of email and comments to catch up on.
Looking back on my trip, I’m glad that I decided to use the future timestamp to publish a few posts during the week. As I departed for my trip I had every intention of logging in at night to read email and publish a quick post. However, as you might have guessed, I did not log on at all during the week as the conference and subsequent vendor parties in the evenings kept me plenty busy.
I did come home with a bag full of free schwag though so I might have a few things to give away in the next week or two!

i’ll bet you won’t be giving away the t-shirts though 😉

😆 Actually, I probably will give a few of them away simply because they won’t fit me. There was only one booth that had 2XL shirts so the rest will likely be up for grabs unless my wife wants them.

Are you willing to post them to Malaysia? 😀 Most of the online gifts ignore us… Anything around 2XL will make a giant nightie for us here though.

I just looked on the USPS website and sending something to Malaysia appears to be about $10 for First-Class International, which I think is doable. The other options are more like $30-40 so I don’t think I would do that.
I don’t know how long First Class International would take to get to you but it could be an option.

There were a few free shirts from the conference, I’ll try to get a few pictures and list all the free schwag sometime this weekend.
Have fun on your cruise!

Ohhh, schwag is always good! Let’s see a list of the goodies 🙂

My kids are trying to steal most of the schwag but I will try to get a picture of the goodies and list what I received some time this weekend.

Everyone deserves a blog vacation now and then. Hope yours was relaxing.

The best part was that the blog didn’t really miss a beat as I had a post lined up to publish each day while I was away. So I was able to take the few days off and then catch up on email and comments when I returned.
I need to take advantage of this more in the future. BTW, welcome and thanks for commenting Lisa!
