American Airlines stranded me in the Dallas-Ft. Worth airport overnight and I just made it to the conference in time for the 2nd half of the poster session. I presented wearing the same clothes I'd been wearing for two days and that I'd "slept" in after feeling like a pigeon at the airport. They know people are going to have to try to sleep there--why do they put those armrests to make it impossible. We won't poop on the floor. Anyway, it was an awesome conference, and I got a lot of good business done.
HBERGer Harold Acosta, Julia Sponholtz, Kira Yancey, Taylor Puckett, and Jennifer Fourroux rocked some URSCA presentations this past weekend and looked good doing it!
