TAEA Conference

I'm here at the Hilton in Austin. I don't even want tell you how much it's costing me, but on the plus side the room is very nice.

I've been to some interesting presentations, and the facilities here are good. I can't say the same about some of the other conferences that I've attended. I went to some technology workshops today, and I'll be using some of that information in my classroom although most of it's intended for older students.

I have not yet started writing for NaNoWriMo, as I've been pretty busy, but I think I've finally got a good idea for that. I'll be writing long hand because I decided at the last minute not to bring my laptop. Next time I'll definitely need to do that.

I can recommend a good barbecue place here. Around the corner from the convention center is a place called Ironworks. Inexpensive and very good. Tonight we're supposed to go get some Japanese. I hope we do, I haven't had good noodles in a while.

I would hope that you can find a decent BBQ place in Austin. I had some pretty good Texas-style BBQ in California, of all places, but I'd like to try some genuine Austin style.

You should. My sister Chloe hates barbecue. She really lives in the wrong state.
