What I Do

today is day three in sunny california. i'm here for an event. that's what i do. events and marketing. events are a blurry time of averaging 3 hours of sleep each night and working our guts out for the other 21 hours of the day. but they can be super fun, too.

this is why:

this is me with one of my favorite friends and colleagues backstage during today's general session. it had to be posted because we actually look adorable despite being in work-induced delirium (yet simultaneously kicking serious ass). she is funny. she seems to enjoy my sarcasm, even rivals it... and is also extremely smart and talented. sigh. one of my favorite people. i hope she'll proof this entry.

i love my staff. they make me laugh and they work fantastically hard. it's a crazy, hellish, whirlwind weekend yet something--some small little something--about it makes it fun. that "something" is the people i work with.

oh, and the fact that there are a million nerds here for some Warcraft video game convention. these "gamers" (as they go by) are totally, awesomely out of control. tonight, we snuck into their massive event and watched Jay Mohr conduct a dance off. not just any dance off; a dance off between demons and elves and whores and monsters. this is a world i am not familiar with but am completely intrigued by. seeing people in capes doing normal things while talking in elf accents and recreating dances seen in the World of Warcraft could possibly be one of the most bitchin' things ever to experience.

anyway, photo above = cute. thanks, e.


  1. I do believe there are not enough words to properly describe this scene...I think it must be incredible. Oh yeah, and you are in my state. Welcome. :)

  2. I met you at the convention center. You are funny, smart, cute, and professional.

  3. karma:: next time perhaps you meet me there are we find some droids together.

    anonymous:: wow. thank you so much for the compliments. it means a lot. truly.

  4. I can't beleive you went to BlizzCon. I've been playing their games since way back in the day. I don't wear capes, however. I do like whores. And demons.
