OH MY STINKIN' HECK I had fun at Inspired. I have about a bajillion things to say about it so I won't even start yet. For now, here is what I loved about my weekend that had absolutely nothing to do with the workshop:
--Crashing in on the Mondos at 9:45 p.m. and keeping everyone awake until much too late when they had to get up early. They are just the best friends and DANG, I love those girls. Hi Emma and Abbie, it was so good to see you and I can't WAIT to visit you again this summer!
--Forty-eleven (that's a lot) country music radio stations. I could live there just for the radio.
--Hearing James Taylor's "Carolina In My Mind" not once but twice on the few radio stations that aren't country (or hip-hop/rap). As we were driving into and in North Carolina. Sweeeeeet.
--Eating at Quaker Steak, which was yummy and brought back good memories of Ohio. :)
--The awesome Bellman Frank, the best bellman I have ever met (even though I worked at Bellagio in Las Vegas for three years). Frank is amazing. Have fun fishing in Alaska, Frank!
--"Y'all, y'all, y'all." I could die for these accents, lawsie mercy!
--Holy POLITENESS, Batman. Southern Hospitality is not a myth, y'all.
--Cracker Barrel and Waffle House. Need I say more?
--Checking into the hotel at the precise moment when the only available room that matched our criteria was a top-floor room with--I mean, seriously!--a balcony.
More on Inspired later this week. :)
