Drive by update

Not only is this the last week of the term for my college writing class, this weekend is also Sew Expo. I'm working in the Bernina booth selling (hopefully) sewing machines all four days. Here's a sample:

5:00 a.m.: alarm goes off
6:00 meet at Bernina to carpool
7:00 arrive at Sew Expo. Gates not yet open.
8:30 sales meeting
9:00 - 6 dizzying whirl of people and noise and sewing machines, with occasional very short breaks of standing behind booth curtain snarfing down sandwich and tea.
7:10 p.m. arrive home
7:45 return home with Thai take out
9:00 a time, now past, by which I needed to go to bed in order to get 8 hours of sleep before repeating all of the above (except, possibly, the Thai takeout).

I'm doing this all weekend. Sunday we finish an hour earlier, but since grades for the writing class are due Monday morning at 10, I don't really foresee sleeping much that night, either.

If any of y'all are at Sew Expo, stop by the Bernina machine booth (it's big and red - you can't miss it) and say hi. My hair is now shorter, but I'm wearing a convenient name tag so you can recognize me.
