On the road again

The eMotion Cafe took to the road again last week.

I flew out to the Reston / Herndon, VA area for three days of Systems Enablement and Roadmapping meetings. Admit it, those words make you hot, too.

I have to admit I wasn't looking forward to hopping on a big jet plane and flying out to Washington DC on September 11th (my departure date) to go talk about Systems Roadmapping in a dark conference room with Total Strangers, but as you all know by now, everything went fine.

Luckily, I was able to work with another guy there, James, and we got everything done in about 2 days while the other folks watched in Awe. Admit it, you like the confidence.

Anyways, that meant half a day working from the hotel room and then a few hours out in Washington DC.

Beyond almost getting arrested in front of the Capitol building by two young thugs in red tshirts and blue baseball caps on sideways - they were apparently representin' the local Parking Patrol - it was a solid time. Note to the Parking Patrol at the Capitol Building: You're Posers. But, that's another story for another time.

Got a chance to explore the city on foot, in car, and by cab - and get some dorky photos in various places throughout the city. Note to Self: post them when I get a chance. So... spent some time in the Georgetown area, drove down Diplomat / Embassy Road, walked around the White House, and then went out to dinner and french kissed some Bacardi Limon and Diet Cokes, lovingly, in Alexandria, VA. Special Thanks to James, from Accenture, who acted as my tour guide and kept me from fighting Injustice by smacking down some Parking Posers. Needless to say, I got most of my sleep on the plane ride back.

Moral of the story: Washington DC gets one big thumbs up. But, the Capitol Building Parking Posers need to get their thumbs out of their asses.
