I don't know how I did that

Sunday night: Got back late after visiting a friend @ UVA, stayed up a couple hours transferring files for work only to realize the next day that I shouldn't have bothered. Slept from 2:30 AM to 7:30 AM.

Monday night: Stayed up late fixing serious problems with the DotA Facebook app because it was consuming too many resources and had to be moved to a dedicated server and ported to MySQL (I told them this would happen, but they didn't listen). Slept from 3:00 AM to 7:30 AM.

Tuesday night: Had a lot of preparation to do. Slept from 12:30 AM to 3:30 AM.

Wednesday: Woke up at 3:30 AM, obviously. Got to the airport (IAD) by 4, had my first coffee, boarded (no sleep on the plane).

Arrived at NYC JFK by 7:10 AM. Rode the subway, reached the Javits Convention Center at 8:30 AM (good timing). Fought hard to stay awake because each and every presentation was totally awesome.

Stage

Had more coffee with lunch, same story during the afternoon. Did the social thing, met people, probably came off all wrong since I was totally groggy and wound up. Now I can change some XFN relationships to "friend met."

Jina on CSS3

Dear Jina: Thank you so much for making CSS cool again. I want CSS3 too. It's really not fair.

6:30 PM — conference over. Seriously regretted not being able to attend the (mt) after party, but wasn't about to spill milk over it. Walked back to the subway, saw this guy get out of a car. Didn't care. Had a fat-loaded meal at the airport to make myself sleepy, passed out on the flight and had dreams about HTML.

IAD

12:30 PM: Finally back in my apartment, writing about my experience.

To anyone I spoke to at the conference: Sorry if I sounded/acted weird. It was a miracle I didn't pass out in front of you. Next time I go to a conference, I'm planning my schedule differently. Oh, and, it was nice talking to you :)
