1. At some point during this conference I really should make it out of dinner somewhat sober.
2. I saw a girl in the airport with boots like these, and now I want some. Damn my impressionable mind!*
3. People from Australia are impressed if you know about cricket, even if what you know is that England beat their team resoundingly earlier in the year. Also, the concept of a "rebuilding year" transcends national boundaries.
4. I am not going to get the Shoesday post written for tomorrow morning, because someone seems to have reordered the keyboard on my laptop. Sorry.
*Note: I am not going to go out and buy those actual boots. I'm not that crazy.
