It's spring, and that means its convention time! In Las Vegas, tomorrow, don't miss the Virtual Air Traffic Convention in Las Vegas! Dusseldorf on Saturday? There's Top Hair 2007 wow! But wait there's more--- Perhaps you'd like to polish your skills in treating the multiple-disordered suicidal client! I know I would! Functional Foods? Learn why seawater has a salty taste at the Bagkok International Book Fair! Hot! Find your own convention.

And then there's the Conference on College Composition and Communication in New York which I am going to later this afternoon.

I lurve finding out what conventions are in Vegas when I'm there. It cracks me up. I love that the Computer Electronics Show is usually on the same weekend as the porn convention. The two conventions are such polar opposites & it's great entertainment to spot the deer-in-headlights computer geeks in the crowd who are seeing boobs in person quite possibly for the first time. (For my money, that is a quite possibly the very best weekend for people watching in Vegas that I could possibly imagine.) But also, I loved watching the demographics on the street visibly change as a Nascar convention grew nearer. And I loved meeting a 400 pound man who was in town for the Clogging Convention & wearing a shirt & baseball cap that both identified him to the world as a championship "dancing contestant."

Convention people watching. Good times.

Interrogating Diversity How to question a subject aggressively but sensitively? Or would that be sensitively but aggressively? Maybe just aggressively.

Most the guys who I know went to CES also went to the porn show and its not their first time for both. Maybe their first time seeing a pair that huge, but not their first time.

(lives in Vegas, went to CES, not the porn show)

And the Virtual Air Traffic Convention made me laugh. I thought I was an avaition geek, but apparently I'm not that big of an avaition geek.

Well, I'm sure there are a few guys at CES who have seen boobs before. Maybe.
