As Ruth pointed out, though I didn't arrive here on a Friday, I have already learned a thing or two (largely related to the persistence of underrepresented minorities in science disciplines and future government reporting requirements).
Sara's here, and also Teri. I like working in an industry where there is a knitblogger contingent at most conferences. We had a nice lunch today, and have yarn crawling planned for tomorrow afternoon.
Anyway, after learning a thing or two or three, Sara and I headed out for yarn and bbq. A series of cases of me getting us lost (what the hell happened to my sense of direction?) meant we got to the yarn store at 6 pm, minutes after they were to close. Sara knocked on the door anyway, and they were very kind and let us in. There was locally hand-dyed yarn, the makings of my next sock (I am kitchenering as we speak, and was in grave danger of not! having a sock! to knit! at a conference!).
The owners were very sweet, willing to be blogged, and even wound my yarn.
Then we went and had some awesome and totally non-touristy barbeque.
The ribs were good but the beans, oh my god the beans. If you're ever in KC, go eat these beans. I know, it's silly to wax rhapsodical about beans, but people you have not tried these beans. My point: yum.
Anyway, it was an early morning and a busy day, so to bed with me. As for tomorrow, what next! What next?
